From: Harlan L Thompson 

LIFE ON MARS?- David Bowie

 G      G/F#            Dm/F          E7                  Am
It's a god-awful small affair to the girl with the mousy hair
         Am/G             D/F#                               G
But her mother is yelling "No" and her father as told her to go
          G/F#                  Dm/F
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
        E7                       Am
as she walks through her sunken dream
        Am/G                  D/F#  
To the seat with the clearest view 
                                Bb
and she's hooked to the silver screen
          Bb+                Gm
But the film is a saddening bore
            G#                   Eb
For she's lived it ten times or more
           G7                   Cm          Eb 
She could spit in the eyes of fools as they ask her to focus on

CHORUS:
  C         F                   G
Sailors, fighting in the dance hall
 Am      Fm                    G  Gm                  Dm
Oh man! look at those cavemen go,    it's a freakest show
Fm                   C      F                    G
Take a look at the Lawman, beating up the wrong guy
Am       Fm                     G Gm                          Dm
Oh man!  Wonder if he'll ever know   he's in the best selling show
Fm                Am   C+  Am7  D7  F  Gsus4  D
Is there life on Mars?


It's on Amerika's tortured brow
Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
Cause Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibeza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Brittania is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
`Cause I wrote it ten times before
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on  ...CHORUS

Bb+:  2 2 4 3 3 2     Eb:    x 6 5 3 4 3
C+:   x 0 2 1 1 0     Gsus4: 3 2 0 0 1 3
Dm/F: 1 x 0 2 3 1


NOTE: For the verse, pick with the following pattern- the base note and 
first and second strings all simultaneously, then the third string.  For 
the chorus, strum.
