PRETTIEST STAR from Aladdin Sane 


INTRO:  F  Dm  D#dim5  A  C


F                                    Dm
Cold fire, you've got everything but cold fire
D#dim5              A
You will be my rest and peace child
                     C
I moved up to take a place...near you

F                                     Dm
So tired, it's the sky that makes you feel tried
D#dim5                   A
It's a trick to make you see wide
                          C
It can all but break your heart...in pieces


Bb                   Am
Staying back in your memory
        Eb            F
Are the movies in the past
Gm               Dm
How you moved is all it takes
   C              Bb          A
To sing a song of when I loved the Prettiest Star


F                                  Dm
One day though it might as well be someday
D#dim5              A
You and I will rise up all the way
                        C
All because of what you are
              F    F7
The Prettiest Star



Bb                   Am
Staying back in your memory
        Eb            F
Are the movies in the past
Gm               Dm
How you moved is all it takes
   C              Bb          A
To sing a song of when I loved the Prettiest Star


F                                  Dm
One day though it might as well be someday
D#dim5                 A
You and I will rise up all the way
                        C

of course the "unreleased" version with bolan on guitar instead of ronson (and visconti on bass) is much much better!

i think that verses sound better when you replace that crazy D#dim5(what the hell is that!?!) with just a simple Dm11 played from the 5th fret.. try it!

The original guit. solo was performed & "written" by Marc Bolan, the initial founder of glam rock, and Mick Ronson copied it by note! I just thought that should be noted, otherwise I only have compliments! =) good work indeed!
