Intro: G D Cadd9 G/B G/A (4 times)

G                        Bm                           C
 Now Ziggy played guitar, jamming good with Weird and Gilly,
                     D                        G
And the Spiders from Mars. He played it left hand,
                  Em            Am                        C
But made it too far; became the special man, then we were Ziggy's band.

G                   Bm                                   C
 Ziggy really sang, screwed up eyes and screwed down hairdo,
                     D                           G
like some cat from Japan. He could lick 'em by smiling,
                       Em                    Am                      C
he could leave them to hang. They came on so loaded, man, well-hung, snow white tan

Am   G                F      G
  So where were the spiders,
Am           G            F              G  Am
 While the fly tried to break our balls?
Am           G            F 
 Just the beer light to guide us,
   G  D                                    E
so we bitched about his fans and should we crush his sweet hands?

G                       Bm                      C
 Ziggy played for time, jiving us that we were voodoo.
                     D                G
The kids were just crass, he was the nazz,
                Em             Am                             C
With God given ass. He took it all too far but, boy, could he play guitar!

Am      G            F      G
 Making love to his ego,
Am     G            F              G
 Ziggy sucked up into his mind,
Am      G         F 
 Like a leper Messiah,
     G   D                                E
When the kids had killed the man I had to break up the band!

G   D Cadd9 G/B G/A
G   D Cadd9 G/B G/A
    G   D Cadd9 G/B G/A
Ohh Yeah...         ooo.... 
G   D  Cadd9           G
       Ziggy played guitar!
