David Bowie – The Drowned Girl chords

Am7  Am6  A6/9

Em Em9 Am7Once she had drowned and started her slow descent
Am7b5 Em6 A6/9Down the streams to where the great rivers broaden
Em Em9 Am7Oh, the open sky shone most magnificent
Am7b5b9 A9 EmajAs if it was acting as her body's guardian
E7 A9 Bm7b5Wreck and duck weed slowly increased her weight
Bm7 Am7By clasping her in their slimy grip
E7 A9 Bm7b5Through her limbs, the cold blooded fishes played
Am7b5b9 A9 EmajCreatures and plant life kept on, thus obstructing her last trip
Em Em9 Am7And the sky that same evening grew dark as smoke
Am7b5 Em6 A6/9And its stars through the night kept the brightness still soaring
Em Em9 Am7But it quickly grew clear when dawn now broke
Am7b5b9 A9 EmajTo see that she got one further morning
E7 A9 Bm7b5Once her pallid trunk had rotted beyond repair
Bm7 Am7It happened quite slowly that she gently slipped from God's thoughts
E7 A9 Bm7b5First with her face, then her hands, right at the last with her hair
Am7b5b9 A9 E6b5 Em7 E7 A7 BdimLeaving those corpse---choked rivers just one more corpse
