Intro: D  G  D  G


D                    G
I - I wish you could swim
         D                            G
Like the dolphins - like dolphins can swim
       C                                D
Though nothing - nothing will keep us together
       Am       Em           D
We can beat them forever and ever
             C     G             D
Oh we can be Heroes just for one day


Interlude - x2 -:
    D  G  D  G


D             G 
I - I will be King
    D                 G
And you - you will be Queen
    C                        D
For nothing will drive them away
          C      G              D
We can be Heroes - just for one day
          Am      Em            D
We can be honest - just for one day


D           G
I - I can remember - I remember -
D               G
Standing by the wall - By the wall -
        D            G
And the guards shot above our heads - Over our heads -
       D                              G
And we kissed as though nothing would fall - Nothing could fall -


        C                D
And the shame was on the other side
          Am           Em       D
Oh we can beat them forever and ever
               C      G            D
Then we can be Heroes just for one day


Interlude:
    D  G  D  G 


D         G      D
We can be Heroes
          G      D
We can be Heroes
          G                   D
We can be Heroes just for one day
          G
We can be Heroes

Does anyone have a good strumming pattern? I’m having a little trouble picking one out

Talyn

Well I haven’t played it through yet but I’d assume that a simple D-D-U-U-D-U would work

cheryl

Thank you- have played it over and over…altho yes, the lyrics in the Bowie version are a bit different but thanks for the chords!
