Check ig-nition and may gods love be with you

This is ground control to major Tom, you've really made the grade
       (Fm             C)                       F
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear

Here am I sitting in a tin can far above the world

Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles, I'm feeling very still
       (Fm               C)                  F
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
       (Fm                     C)          F
Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows

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