Chords and lyrics for Conversation Piece by David Bowie

G 
 
D 
 
G 
 
too
D 
k this walk to ease my mind
Am 
To find out what’s gnawing at me
C 
Wouldn’t think to look at me,
 
G 
 
D 
 
that I’ve spent  
A 
lot of time in education
C 
It all seems so long ago
G 
I
D 
‘m a thinker, not a talker
C 
I’ve no-one to talk to, anyway
 
I  
G 
can
F 
‘t see the road
 
f
C 
or 
 
the
G 
rain in my eyes
G 
Ahh
F 
 
.
C 
..
G 
 
I liv
D 
e above the grocers store,
Am 
owned by an Austrian
C 
He often calls me down to eat
G 
An
D 
d he jokes about his broken English,
C 
 
tries to be  
A 
friend to me
G 
Bu
D 
t for all my years of reading conversation,
C 
 
I stand without  
A 
word to say
 
I c
G 
an’
F 
t see the bridge
 
f
C 
or the rain
G 
in my eyes
 
A
A 
nd the  
E 
world is full of life
Bm 
Full of folk who don’t know me
D 
And they walk in twos or threes or more
 
A 
While
E 
the light that shines above the grocer’s store
D 
Investigates my face so rudely
A 
An
E 
d my essays lying scattered on the floor
D 
Fulfill their needs just by being there
 
A
A 
nd 
 
 
E 
my hands shake, my head hurts,
 
my v
D 
oice 
 
 
A 
sticks inside my throat
 
I
A 
‘m 
 
in
E 
visible and dumb,
 
And  
D 
no-on
A 
e will recall me
 
A
A 
nd I can
G 
‘t see the water
 
f
C 
or the tea
E 
rs
A 
in my ey-y-yes
