C                                E
This is Ground Control to Major Tom
       E7                F 
You've really made the grade
        Fm             C                     F 
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
         Fm                C    
Now it's time to leave the capsule
       F
if you dare

C                           E 
This is Major Tom to Ground Control
    E7                   F  
I'm stepping through the door
        Fm
And I'm floating
       C           F
in a most peculiar way
        Fm              C
And the stars look very different today

    Fmaj7
For here
     Em
Am I sitting in a tin can
Fmaj7         Em 
Far above the world
Bb              Am
Planet Earth is blue
            G             F
And there's nothing I can do

C   F   G    A A
C   F   G    A A

Fmaj7 Em  A  C  D  E


C
Though I'm past
                     E 
one hundred thousand miles
    E7           F
I'm feeling very still
       Fm                C                  F
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
        Fm              C    
Tell my wife I love her very much
    F
she knows

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

Can you....

    Fmaj7
For here am I
Em
Floating round my tin can
Fmaj7         Em 
Far above the moon
Bb              Am
Planet Earth is blue
            G             F
And there's nothing I can do

C   F   G    A A
C   F   G    A A

Fmaj7 Em  A  C  D  E
