I took these chords and patterns from Drue James' YouTube video on the song and made it into a tab to follow
along. Original video here -> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AesbYNXrbGY&index=4&list=WL

[Intro]
A Fmaj7 A Fmaj7 

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

[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/G
 That weren't no DJ that was hazy cosmic jive.

(1 strum) Fmaj7(7th fret)  (1 strum) Fmaj7(5th fret)

[Chorus]
          F       Dm
There's a starman waiting in the sky
     Am               C/G
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/G
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/G 
   Let the children boogie."

[Instrumental]
Bb  F  C/G  F  Bb  F  C/G

[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/G                                               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/G                                               
 Don't tell your papa or he'll get us locked up in a fright. 
  
(1 strum) Fmaj7(7th fret)  (1 strum) Fmaj7(5th fret)

[Chorus]
          F       Dm
There's a starman waiting in the sky

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

'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/G 
   Let the children boogie."
