[Verse 1]
Gm7                                |  C  |  C     Csus4 |
 She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Gm7              |  C  |  C     Bb |
 Zero hour, nine A.M.
Eb                Bb   Cm  Eb              |  F    Fsus2 |  F  |
 And I'm gonna be hi-i-igh ... as a kite by then
Gm7                          C           Csus4
 I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
Gm7                   |  C      Bb |
   It's lonely out in space
Eb         Bb   Cm      Eb      | F | F    Eb |
 On such a ti-i-imeless flight


[Chorus]
Bb                                      [ Eb ]
 And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Eb                                       [ Bb ]
 Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
Bb                                  [ Eb ]
 I'm not the man they think I am at home
Eb           Bb         C          Csus4 C
 Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
Eb                                  | Bb         Bbsus4 Bb |  Eb  |
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone
Bb                                      [ Eb ]
 And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Eb                                       [ Bb ]
 Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
Bb                                  [ Eb ]
 I'm not the man they think I am at home
Eb           Bb         C          Csus4
 Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
Eb                                  | Bb         Bbsus4 Bb | Eb  Ebadd9 |
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone


[Verse 2]
Gm7                            C               Csus4
 Mars ain't the kinda place to raise your kids
Gm7                    |  C  |  C     Bb   |
  In fact it's cold as hell
Eb                   Bb        Cm             Eb             | F | % |
 And there's no one there to-o-o raise them ... if you did
Gm7                            C
 And all this science, I don't understand
Gm7                           C
 It's just my job five days a week
    C7sus4 Eb Bb  Cm  Eb       | F | F    Eb |
A rocket   ma-a-a-an,    rocket man


[Chorus]
Bb                                      [ Eb ]
 And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Eb                                       [ Bb ]
 Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
Bb                                  [ Eb ]
 I'm not the man they think I am at home
Eb           Bb         C          Csus4 C
 Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
Eb                                  | Bb         Bbsus4 Bb |  Eb  |
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone
Bb                                      [ Eb ]
 And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Eb                                       [ Bb ]
 Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find
Bb                                  [ Eb ]
 I'm not the man they think I am at home
Eb           Bb         C          Csus4
 Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
Eb                                  | Bb         Bbsus4 Bb |
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone


[Outro]
Eb                              Bb
   And I think it's gonna be a long long time
Eb                              Bb
   And I think it's gonna be a long long time
