CRACKED ACTOR from Aladdin Sane


INTRO:  E
        E5  F5  G5
        E5  F5  G5  B


          F                      Am
I've come on a few years from my Hollywood Highs
    E                             D
The best of the last the cleanest star they ever had
    F                      Am
I'm stiff on my legend the films that I made
   E                     
Forget that I'm fifty cause you just got paid


CHORUS 1:
Bm               A
Crack baby crack show me you're real
G                        F#
Smack baby smack is that all that you feel
Bm             A
Suck baby suck give me your head
G                                       F#
Before you start professing that you're knocking me dead


SOLO:  E5  F5  G5
       E5  F5  G5  B


    F                               Am
You caught yourself a trick down on Sunset and Vine
    E                                 D
But since he pinned you baby you're a porcupine
    F                       Am
You sold me illusions for a sack full of cheques
       E
You've made a bad connection 'cause I just want your sex


CHORUS 2


OUTRO:  E5  F5  G5   E5  F5  G5

Marianna or to give her her proper title, Babylon should know about this. He was approaching fifty and she had a new name11111(See Tin Machine 2)

It needs the two solos. it would be better

On "David Live" theres like a cool guitar intro bit that plays the like harmonica part on the original record, anyway here it is:
e-10------10--------
b----12-----12------
g------12-----12-10-
You play the first 10th fret on the high e string loads at first, listen to the recording to get the timing. What a wicked song!

I believe the A and F# chords in the chorus both start as "sus4" chords and then drop to major: Bm / Asus4 -> A G / F#sus4 -> F# Listen to the record for the rhythm.
