Rocket's Tail
By Kate Bush
From 1989's "The Sensual World"


Gm                  Cm7   Eb                       F
That November night, looking up into the sky, 

You said, 

Gm                              Cm
"Hey, wish that was me up there--

           Eb                             F 
It's the biggest rocket I could find,

                                            Eb 
And it's holding the night in its arms

     Fsus4     Csus4     
If only for a moment.

   F                                 Eb 
I can't see the look in its eyes,

             Cm                 F 
But I'm sure it must be laughing." 

Gm                    Cm          
But it seemed to me 

Eb                       F                  
The saddest thing I'd ever seen, 

Gm                              Cm2       
And I thought you were crazy, 

Ebmaj7  Fsus2       
Wishing such a thing. 

         F                     Eb
I saw only a stick on fire,

    Fsus2      Csus4  
Alone on its journey

F                                  Eb 
Home to the quickening ground,

        Csus4              F 
With no one there to catch it. 

Gm                            Cm
I put on my pointed hat 

       Eb                 F  
And my black and silver suit,

Gm                        Cm  
And I check my gunpowder pack 

       Eb                    Csus4       
And I strap the stick on my back.

         F                               Eb       
And, dressed as a rocket on Waterloo Bridge--

    Fsus2              Csus4   
Nobody seems to see me.

F                                    Eb 
Then, with the fuse in my hand,

       Cm               F 
And now shooting into the night!



3X:  Cm      Bb   F   

       Eb       F     Cm
 
      F      
And still as a rocket, 

   Cm                    
I land in the river. 

Eb      Gm                          F
Was it me said you were crazy? 


2X: Cm     Bb  F   Gm

   Cm7         Bb         F         Gm     Cm     Bb     F     Gm
I put on my cloudiest suit,

Cm7                 Bb     F      Gm     Cm7 
Size 5 lightning boots, too. 

           Bb       F         Gm      Cm7     Bb
'Cause I am a rocket 

F         Gm       Cm7      
On fire. 

Bb         F               Gm      Cm7      Bb
With my tail on fire, 
 
F              Gm      Cm7     Bb           
Tail on fire, 

F          Gm
On fire. 

Cm7                         Bb         F       Eb      Cm
Look at me go, look at look at me
