Fmaj7 Em


[Verse 1]

C                       Em  C                       Em
Ground control to Major Tom Ground control to Major Tom:
Am        Am7/G             D7
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
C                       Em   C                             Em
Ground control to Major Tom: Commencing countdown engine's on
Am       Am7/G          D7
Check ig-nition and may God's love be with you


[Chorus]

C                               E7                          F
This is ground control to Major Tom, you've really made the grade!
         Fm             C/E                   F     
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear, 
         Fm                C/E            F
now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare
C                               E7                             F
This is Major Tom to ground con-trol, I'm stepping through the door
        Fm              C/E           F   
And I'm floating in the most peculiar way 
        Fm              C/E         F
and the stars look very different today
       

[Bridge]

   Fmaj7     Em7                   Fmaj7         Em7
For here am I sitting in a tin can, far above the world
Bbmaj7          Am               G             F
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do

C                                      E7                      F
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


[Chorus]

G                 E7
Ground control to Major Tom: 
      Am                      Am7/G
Your circuit's dead, there's something wrong.
        D7                
Can you hear me Major Tom? 
        C/G
Can you hear me Major Tom? 
        G
Can you hear me Major Tom? Can you ...


[Bridge]

 Fmaj7     Em7                   Fmaj7         Em7
here am floating in my tin can, far above the moon
Bbmaj7          Am               G             F
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do


[Interlude/Outro]

C            F            G            A   A
Fmaj7        Em7          A       C       D       E

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.
