[Verse 1]
Em7                                |  A  |  A     Asus4 | 
 She packed my bags last night pre-flight   
Em7              |  A  |  A     G/B | 
 Zero hour, nine A.M. 
C                 G/B  Am  C/G             |  D/F#    Dsus2 |  D    |
 And I'm gonna be hi-i-igh ... as a kite by then    
Em7                          A         Asus4 
 I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife  
Em7                   |  Asus4      G/B | 
   It's lonely out in space  
C          G/B  Am        C/G   | D/F# D/A | D    C/D | 
 On such a ti-i-imeless flight   


[Chorus]
G                                      [ C ]
 And I think it's gonna be a long long time  
C                                       [ G ]     
 Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find  
G                                  [ C ]
 I'm not the man they think I am at home  
C           G/B       A          Asus4 A
 Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man  
C                                  | G         Gsus4 G |  C  | 
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone
G                                      [ C ]
 And I think it's gonna be a long long time  
C                                       [ G ]     
 Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find  
G                                  [ C ]
 I'm not the man they think I am at home  
C           G/B       A          Asus4 4
 Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man  
C                                  | G         Gsus4 G |  C  Cadd9 | 
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone


[Verse 2]
Em7                            A               Asus2 
 Mars ain't the kinda place to raise your kids  
Em7                    |  A  |  A     G/B | 
  In fact it's cold as hell  
C                   G/B      Am             C/G          | D/F# D/A | D | 
 And there's no one there to-o-o raise them ... if you did    
Em7                            A
 And all this science, I don't understand  
Em7                         |  A     A7sus4 |
 It's just my job five days a week  
         C  G/B Am  C/G         | D/F# D/A | D    C/D | 
A rocket ma-a-a-an,    rocket man    


[Chorus]
G                                      [ C ]
 And I think it's gonna be a long long time  
C                                       [ G ]     
 Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find  
G                                  [ C ]
 I'm not the man they think I am at home  
C           G/B       A          Asus4 A
 Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man  
C                                  | G         Gsus4 G |  C  | 
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone
G                                      [ C ]
 And I think it's gonna be a long long time  
C                                       [ G ]     
 Til touchdown brings me 'round again to find  
G                                  [ C ]
 I'm not the man they think I am at home

C                                  | G         Gsus4 G |
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone


 
[Outro]
C                              G 
   And I think it's gonna be a long long time  
C                              G 
   And I think it's gonna be a long long time

This is a great tab for beginners with a nice bit of 4th finger action on the Asus and Dsus, and easy to remember.

Soooo close. There is a Am/G missing between the Am and the D in the verse and the chorus (similar run down he uses in Your Song, a song also in G and uses this run done on the "I hope you don't mind.." sections) and there is also a little Gsus4 (3 2 0 0 1 3) in the outro and on the last chorus. Easy to play just play the G like this 3 2 0 0 0 3 and slip your first finger on the B string. So the it goes C - G - Gsus4 - G. Not sure about the Dsus2 either :)

Commenting primarily to thank you for an awesome tab.

Also seconding southak's Am/G suggestion. It's in the song itself, I believe, and makes for a far smoother transition to D anyway.
