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 to
G --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0--|   accent the bass notes to give it that
D --0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0-0--|   cool song that the song cannot live
A --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, it
D --4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4--4-4-4-|   would be better to slide from the first
A --1s2--2-2--1s2--2-2--1s2-2-|   fret to the second playing B5*)
E ----------------------------|


The song with the chords are:

D-C-G5*
D-C-G5*

              F#m                             A
Well she is a tongue twisting storm, she will come to the show tonight
Bm                      F#5-A5-B5*
Praying to the light machine
             F#m                        A
She wants my honey not my money she~s a funky-thigh collector
Bm                   F#5-A5-B5*
Laying on electric dreams

        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


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
