[Verse]
Gm                                C
She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Gm              C
Zero hour, nine a.m.
Eb                Bb  quick Eb     F
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then
Gm                                  C
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
Gm                    C
It's so lonely out in space
Eb         Bb   quick Eb   F
On such a timeless flight


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


[Verse]
Gm                              C
Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
Gm                   C
In fact it's cold as hell
Eb                  Bb  quick Eb         F
And there's no one there to raise them, if you did
Gm                           C
And all this science I don't understand
Gm                           C
It's just my job, five days a week
Eb        Bb quick Eb   F
A rocket man, a rocket man


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

Bb                                      Eb
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time [x4 sounds pretty good, end w/ Eb]

A lot easier to play with a capo on third fret. That makes the chords Em, A, C, G and D.
