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.

Now Lucy's looking sweet, though he dresses like a queen, he can
kick like a mule, its a real mean team.
We can love, we can love.
And my brother's back at home with his Beatles and his Stones we
never got it off on that revolution stuff.
What a drag - too many snags.

BRIDGE
Well I drunk a lotta wine and I'm feelin' fine -
gonna race some cat to bed. Is this
concrete all around or is it
in my head? Oh, Brother, ya guessed - I'm a dude.

Ok, here we go. This is my first post, so deep breaths. This is quite
tricky to play in parts. It's based on the 'David Live' version - as
I don't have a copy of Mott the Hopple! Have fun. Comments corrections
etc, mail me.
