Everything you need to know for the rest of the song is all there because it pretty much repeats itself from there on. Song: Ziggy Stardust Artist: David Bowie Tabbed By: James Fantom Snowblind190@hotmail.com The Tablature is the electric guitar part. The Chords above it are the accoustic's Bowie's) part The Lyrics are out of place probably, im not sure. This tab probably be hard to understand, seeing as it's just text, but some good are power tab and Guitar Pro. Power tab is free, but guitar pro costs 60 bucks, but it is by far the better program.

Watch That Man I was not able to find this tab yet. i will come back and fix it. Crazy-Eyed Boy from Freecloud Date: Wed, 29 Apr 1998 17:15:10 -0700 (PDT) From: toomey Subject: b/bowie_david/wild-eyed_boy_from_freecloud.crd I picked this one out on piano. It's kind of tough to do the descending baseline with a guitar, but it sounds really cool. >From Space Oddity, or Man of Words, Man of Music. FYI: D/C#: X40232 D/C: X30232 D/B: X20232 Bb6: X13333 A#dim:X12023 or XX2323, I prefer the former.

A A#dim Blows his pipe of smolders, blankets D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6 smoke into the room, and the day will end for some. C G F E7sus E7 As the night begins for one. (Chords the same until they pick up again) Staring through the message in his eyes lies a solitary son from the mountain called the freecloud where the eagle dare not fly, and the patience in his sigh gives no indication for the townsmen to decide, so the village dreadful groans Pronouncing gross diversion as the label for the dog. Ooo it's the madness in his eyes C G As he breaks the night to cry D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6 Its really me, really you and really me A A#dim It's so hard for us to really D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6 be, Really you, really me, A A#dim You'll lose me though I'm always really D D/C# D/C D/B C C C C free. C C7 And the mountain moved it's eyes to the world and realized Bb Ab C E7sus E7 Where the snow had saved a place for the wild-eyed boy from free cloud (Same chords) And the village dreadful cried as the moat began to rise For the smile stayed on the face of the wild-eyed boy from freecloud. G C And the women once proud clutched the heart of the crowd G C as the boulders smashed down from the mountains hand. Am C And the magic in the stare of the wild-eyed boy said Am C E7sus E7 "Stop Free Cloud, they won't think to cut me down, no, no, no!" F C F C But the cottages fell like a playing card hell Bb F C and the tears on the face of the wise boy F C F C came trembling down to the rumbling ground Bb F C and the missionary mystic of peace/love D D/C# D/C D/B Bb6 Stumbled back to cry among the clouds A A#sus D D/C# C Kicking back the pebbles from the Free Cloud mountain's track. toomey@sos.net for requests, comments. All the Young Dudes Date: Thu, 5 Oct 1995 23:12:23 -0400 From: ccd5@po.cwru.edu (Christopher Doll, Esquire) Subject: TAB: by All of my postings were picked out by ear, so if you see of any mistakes, please mail me. I have posted them because I can't really agree with the previous postings. The Mott the Hoople version from 1972 was recorded in D major. Bowie's studio version from 1973 (now available on RarestOneBowie) is in between C and B major (I think), probably because of the playback speed. I'm not sure about available live recordings by either artists. The lyrics between the two studio versions vary slightly - Bowie's lyrics are used here; however, I chose to write the music in D major rather than get involved with the C major/B major deal. In D major: The first four measures of the verse contain an ascending D major scale down to A. The beginning of each measure gets one note.

Repeated twice. It also comes up once or twice during the song. Also Guez didn't put the chords for this bit. I figured out these chords at home but I forgot to write them... Off the top of my head: C Am F C F Strange fascinations fascinating me C Am G7 Oh changes are taking the place I'm going thru.
