Hang On To Yourself
	(words & music by David Bowie)


This song is featured off of Bowie~s -The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust
and the Spiders From Mars- album.  It is quite simple and fun to play as
are most of Bowie~s songs.  Before I write down the chords, I must explain
that the chords G5* and B5* are played respectively:

  G5*

E --3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3-3--|B --3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3--3-3-3--| (of course, it would be auspicious toG --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0--| accent the bass notes to give it thatD --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0--| cool song that the song cannot liveA --x-x--x-x--x-x--x-x--x-x-x--| without. -h- stands for hammer-on)E --2h3--3-3--2h3--3-3--2h3-3--|
B5*
E ----------------------------|B ----------------------------|G --4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4-4-| (this time instead of hammering on, itD --4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4-4-| would be better to slide from the firstA --1s2--2-2--1s2--2-2--1s2-2-| fret to the second playing B5*)E ----------------------------|

D-C-G5*D-C-G5*
F#m A We can~t dance, we don~t talk much, we just ball and play Bm F#5-A5-B5* But then we move like tigers on vaseline F#m A Well the bitter comes out better on a stolen guitar Bm F#5-A5-B5* You~re the blessed, we~re the spiders from Mars C D C D So come on, come on, we~ve really got a good thing going C D C Well come on, come on, if you think we~re gonna make it A You better hang on to yourself
