The Jean Genie by David Bowie
-----------
Tabbed by Frederic Maquet (f.maquet@ic.ac.uk)


This is an extremely fun song to play. It's quite easy to make it sound
quite like
the original. The tab is 90% correct, as I taped this off the radio.
Therefore, I'm not quite
sure about the intro (although, it should be that, if I remember
correctly),
and I think in the extended version there might be a longer solo
(probably based
on E blues),but then again, there might not be one...Enjoy!

Don't forget to drop me a line:

E E E A E E E A
Small Jean Genie, she took off to the city,
E E E A E E E A
Strung out on lasers and slash-back blazers
Ate all your razors while pulling the waiters
Talking 'bout Monroe while walking on snow white
New York's a go-go, and everything tastes nice,
Poor little greenie...
Oowwooohoo

Gene Genie, lives.....back

B riff
Jean Genie, lives on his back,
Jean Genie, loves Jimmy's ex,
"It's outrageous", he screams and he bawls,
Jean Genie, let yourself go!

A riff x2
Ohooo

Verse 2:
--------

Sits like an adder, he smiles like a reptile,
She love him, she love him, but just for a short while,
She's scratching the sand, won't let go of his hand,
He says he's a beautician, he sells you nutrition,
Keeps off your dead hair and making a bundle, (
