God Knows I'm Good
GOD KNOWS I'M GOODm David Bowie INTRO: G C C G F C (rpt) Am Am/G Bm C I was walking through the counters of a national concern F C G C C And a cash machine was spitting by my shoulder Am Am/G Bm C And I saw the multitude of faces, honest, rich and clean F C G C C As the merchandise exchanged and money roared Am Am/G Am Am/G And a woman hot with worry slyly slipped a tin of a stewing steak Bm C G C C Into the paper bag at her side Am Am/G Am Am/G And her face was white with fear in case her actions were observed Bm C G C C G she closed her eyes to keep her conscience blind CHORUS #1: Am Am/G Am/F# F Crying "God knows I'm good, God knows I'm good F E Am Am/G E God knows I'm good, God may look the other way today Am Am/G Am/F# F God knows I'm good, God knows I'm good F E Am Am/G E (intro) God knows I'm good, God may look the other way today" Then she moved toward the exit clutching tightly at her paper bag Perspiration trickled down her forehead And her heart it leapt inside her as the hand laid on her shoulder She was led away bewildered and amazed Through her deafened ears the cash machines were shrieking on the counter As her escort asked her softly for her name And a crowd of honest people rushed to help a tired old lady Who had fainted to the whirling wooden floor CHORUS #2: Crying "God knows I'm good, God knows I'm good God knows I'm good, surely God won't look the other way God knows I'm good, God knows I'm good God knows I'm good, surely God won't look the other way" Hey!
