  It started with a low light,  next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed.
                      C#m        B                       B              E
And then they took my blood type,  they left a strange impression in my head.
                    E      E                         E                   B
You know that I was hopin',  that I could leave this starcrossed world behind.
                     C#m  B                      B
But when they cut me open,  I guess I changed my mind.

Prechorus 1:
        A      B               C#m       G#m
And you know I might have just flown too far
         A          B                  C#m              G#m     
from the floor this time, 'cos they're calling me by my name.
            A                          B            G#m            C#m
And they’re zipping white light beams, disregarding bombs and satellites.
B              B             B              B
  That was the turning point,  that was one lonely night.

Chorus 1:
E                       C#m          E                         A
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
A                     C#m                 G#m                B
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."

Verse 2:
E                      E        E                     E              B
  Well now I'm back at home and,  I'm looking forward to this life I live.
                    C#m      B               B              E
You know it's gonna haunt me,  so hesitation to this life I give.
                          E    E                           E                     B
You think you might cross over,  you're caught between the devil & the deep blue sea.
                   C#m  B                      B
You better look it over,  before you make that leap.

Prechorus 2:
        A        B           C#m        G#m
And you know I'm fine, but I hear those voices
   A         B           C#m        G#m
at night sometimes, that justify my claim.
        A                     B                        G#m        C#m
And the public don't dwell on my transmission, 'cos it wasn't televised.
B                B             B            B
  But it was the turning point,  oh, what a lonely night!

Chorus 2:
E                       C#m          E                         A
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
A                     C#m                 G#m                B
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."

Both transcriptions of A Crippling Blow are correct - if you took the time to read the notes properly you'd see that one is in standard tuning and one is in dropped tuning. Neither is "right" or "wrong" - it's a matter of preference and caters for people of different playing abilities.
