[Intro]

Bb/A Fmaj7


[Verse 1]

Gm
Didn't know what time it was the lights were low-ow-ow.
F
 I lean back on my radio-o-o
C                            C7
 Some cat was laying down some rock'n'roll,
                      F Ab Bb
'Lotta soul' he said. 


[Verse 2]

Gm
 Then the loud sound did seem to fa-a-ade
F
 Came back like a slow voice on a wave of pha-a-ase
C                            C7                A   G
 That weren't no DJ that was hazy cosmic jive.


[Chorus]

          F       Dm
There's a starman waiting in the sky
     Am               C
He'd like to come and meet us
       C7
But he thinks he'd blow our minds.
          F       Dm
There's a starman waiting in the sky
     Am             C
He's told us not to blow it
          C7
'Cause he knows it all worthwhile,

He told me,
Bb*         Bbm             F         D7
   "Let the children lose it, let the children use it,
Gm         C 
   Let the children boogie."

Bb F   C   F   Bb F   C


[Verse 3]

Gm
  Well I had to phone someone so I picked on you-ou-ou
F
  Hey that's far out, so you heard him too-oo-oo
C                         C7                      F Ab Bb
  Switch on the TV we may pick him on Channel 2.


[Verse 4]

Gm
  Look out your window I can see his li-i-ight,
F
  If we can sparkle he may land toni-i-ight,
C                              C7                            A  G 
 Don't tell your papa or he'll get us locked up in a fright. 


[Chorus]

          F       Dm
There's a starman waiting in the sky
     Am               C
He'd like to come and meet us
       C7
But he thinks he'd blow our minds.
          F       Dm
There's a starman waiting in the sky
     Am             C
He's told us not to blow it
          C7
'Cause he knows it all worthwhile,

He told me,
Bb          Bbm             F         D7
   "Let the children lose it, let the children use it,
Gm         C 
   Let the children boogie."
F          Dm
   Starman waiting in the sky
     Am               C
He'd like to come and meet us
       C7
But he thinks he'd blow our minds.
          F       Dm
There's a starman waiting in the sky
     Am             C
He's told us not to blow it
          C7
'Cause he knows it all worthwhile,

He told me,
Bb          Bbm             F         D7
   "Let the children lose it, let the children use it,
Gm         C 
   Let the children boogie."


[Outro]

Bb    F    C    F

Bb          F            C            F
La la la la la, la la la la, la la la la, la la la la

this tab and the other highest rated tab both sound correct, but the "let the children lose it" parts are different...

Good work, well done you!

What a brilliant song it is eh?

The first song i've ever truly mastered. (in my own little way.. :P) The next time someone says "Play something" I'll play this! :)

Thx James.
