Jump They Say - David Bowie

INTRO:  C  Bb  C  Bb (2x)

C              Bb
When comes the shaking man
  C             Bb
A nation in his eyes
C                        Bb
Striped with blood and emblazed tattoo
C                   Bb
Streaking cathedral spire
     C
They say
         Bb
      he has no brain
     C
They say
         Bb
      he has no mood
     C
They say
             Bb
      he was born again
     C
They say
                  Bb
      look at him climb
          Dm9  F  Gm  C
They say 'Jump'
          Dm9  F  Gm  C
They say 'Jump'

   C  Bb  C  Bb (2x)
     C
They say
         Bb
      he has two gods
     C
They say
         Bb
      he has no fear
     C
They say
         Bb
      he has no eyes
     C
They say
         Bb
      he has no mouth

Bb                  C
They say hey that's really something
Bb                  C
They feel he should get some time
Bb              C
I say he should watch his ass
Bb                     C
My friend don't listen to the crowd
          Dm9  F  Gm  C
They say 'Jump'

          Dm9  F  Gm  C
They say 'Jump'
          Dm9  F
They say 'Jump'
         Gm          C
Got to believe somebody
          Dm9  F
They say 'Jump'
         Gm    C
Got to believe

Try a Bb/D instead of the plain Bb.

Uhmmm, by all other accounts this song is about his brother's suicide. The tab is quite good.

Has it occurred to you that David meant HE was being told to jump- into a situation that he didn't like and he was reassuring his "friend" he wouldn't because it would jeoPArdise their union????
