Complete chords for Conversation Piece - David Bowie

Created by Forever Erratic

G  D  

G				D
I took this walk to ease my mind
    To find out what's gnawing at me
    Wouldn't think to look at me,

G			  D
		that I've spent a lot of time in education
	It all seems so long ago
G 	     D
       I'm a thinker, not a talker
	I've no-one to talk to, anyway

  G		F
I can't see the road
	C	    G
for the rain in my eyes
G  F  C  G
Ahhh ...

I live above the grocers store,
	owned by an Austrian
	He often calls me down to eat
G		D
	And he jokes about his broken English,
	tries to be a friend to me
G		D
	But for all my years of reading conversation,
	I stand without a word to say

   G		F	
I can't see the bridge
	C          G
for the rain in my eyes

(now it changes key, everything goes up 1 step)

	A	   	 E
And the world is full of life
	Full of folk who don't know me
	And they walk in twos or threes or more

A		   E
	While the light that shines above the grocer's store
	Investigates my face so rudely
A		E
	And my essays lying scattered on the floor
	Fulfill their needs just by being there
	A		E
And my hands shake, my head hurts,
    D		  A
my voice sticks inside my throat
	A	   E
I'm invisible and dumb,
    D		  A	
And no-one will recall me
	A	      G
And I can't see the water
	C	  Am7?		E	A
for the tears in my ey-y-yes
