Em                               A
She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Em              A      
Zero hour, nine a.m.    
G1st C                   G1st-Am-G2nd                 D mixed with D5th 
       And I'm gonna be hi------gh as a kite by then
Em                          A
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
Em                   A
It's so lonely out in space
G1st C             G1st-Am-    G2nd              D mixed with D5th
        On such a time-------less flight

Chorus: [x2]
G                                      C
 And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
'Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think I am at home
           G1st       A
Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
G1st C                                     G
    Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone 
                                      (+C between choruses)

Em                              A
Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
Em                  A
In fact it's cold as hell
G1st C                      G1st-Am-G2nd                   D mixed with D5th
      And there's no one there to raise them, if you did
Em                           A
And all this science I don't understand
Em                           A
It's just my job, five days a week
G1st C           G1st-Am-G2nd            D
     A rocket ma---------n, a rocket man
Chorus [x2 again]
C                                  G
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time [x4 sounds pretty good, end w/ C]
