Though I'm passed one hundred thousand miles, I'm feeling very still
      Fm                 C/E                F
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go, 
       Fm              C             F
tell my wife I love her very much she knows

G                 E7
Ground control to Major Tom: 
      Am                      Am7/G
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong.

Can you hear me Major Tom? 
        C/G
Can you hear me Major Tom? 
        G
Can you hear me Major Tom? Can you ...

here am floating in my tin can, far above the moon

Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do

Great entry, chords sound good. One comment, I think the entry is Fmaj7 / Em until the lyrics begin, then switch to C / Em

Good, especially as you included the instrumental part (that are missing from other versions). Well done!
Agree with first comment, though. And the Bb in the bridges is NOT a major7 chord but a regular Bb.
