    C                                F                       C   G  F  C  G  F
I'm up on the eleventh floor and I'm watching the cruisers below
     C                           F                             C  G  F  C  G  F
He's down on the street and he's trying hard to pull sister Flo
       C                          F                        C  G  F  C  G  F
Oh, My heart's in the basement my weekend's at an all time low
             C                    F                           
'Cause she's hoping to score so I can't see her letting him go
C               E                     A
Walk out of her heart walk out of her mind, Oh not her


CHORUS 1:
         B                       D          B                                D
She's so swishy in her satin and tat in her frock coat and bipperty-bopperty hat
       B                      C  G  F  C  G  F  C  G  F  C  G  F
Oh God I could do better than that



         C                      F                                C  G  F  C  G  F
She's an old time ambassador of sweet talking night walking games
              C                              F                        C  G  F  C  G  F
Oh, and she's known in the darkest clubs for pushing ahead of the dames
       C                          F                          C  G  F  C  G  F
If she says she can do it she can do it she don't make false claims
            C                                   F                           E
For she's a queen and such are queens that your laughter is sucked in their brains
                      F                           C
Now she's leading him on and she'll lay him right down 
                       F                           E
Yeah she's leading him on and she'll lay him right down
                       F                         C
But it could have been me yes it could have been me 
             E                A
Why did'nt I say why did'nt I say, No, no, no


CHORUS 2


     C                      F                    C  G  F  C  G  F
So I lay down a while and I gaze at my hotel wall
       C                 F                            C  G  F  C  G  F 
Oh the cot is so cold it don't feel like no bed at all
     C                    F                    C  G  F  C  G  F
Yeah, I lay down a while and look at my hotel wall
         C                       F                            E
And he's down on the street so I throw both his bags down the hall
                  F                          C
And I'm phoning a cab cause my stomach feels small
                      F                          E
There's a taste in my mouth and it's no taste at all  
                          F                          C
It could have been and yes it could have been me 
             E                A
Why did'nt I say why did'nt I say, No, no, no

Nice Job! :-)

the c chord is played as normal but the F is actully Fmaj11 is you watch his guitar neck closely. The G is the same chord but 2 frets along. The C G F chord change is quite difficult normal so its not surprising bowie played it a diffrent way. Mick Ronson also plays these chords. I noticed this on the recording of bowie on the old grey whistle test.

Of all that Bowie has done, this song is one of the true masterpieces, absolutely brilliant, along with the entire album.
