    Intro Riff x4


    G                            Bm                   

      Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and

      C                                 D

    Gilly, The Spiders from  Mars. He played it left hand,

    G                             Em                     

       but made it too far,    Became the

      Am                                  C

    special man, then we were Ziggy's Band.


    G                              Bm

    Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down

      C                                        D                           

    hairdo Like some cat from Japan, he could lick 'em by

          G                                    Em

    smiling  He could leave 'm to hang

                        Am                                   C

    Came on so loaded man, well-hung and snow white tan.


    A5 (½)   G5 (½)               F5         

         So where were the spiders

    A5 (½)        G5 (½)               F5         

       while the fly tried to break our balls

    A5 (½)      G5 (½)               F5         

      Just the beer light to guide us,

               D                                                        E

    So we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands? 


    Repeat Intro Riff x2


    G                                Bm

    Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were

        C                                   D                           

    Voodoo The kids was just crass, he was the naz,

    G                              Em

        With God-given ass       He took it

     Am                                     C

    all too far but boy could he play guitar.


    A5 (½)       G5 (½)          F5         

        Making love with his ego,  

    A5 (½)   G5 (½)            F5         

       Ziggy sucked up into his mind

    A5 (½)     G5 (½)        F5         

        Like a leper messiah

                    D                                                E

    When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band.
