Rocket Man chords
Elton John 1972 (Bernie Taupin)

Capo III*

Em7                                 A7
She packed my bags last night - pre-flight
Em7               A
Zero hour, nine A.M.
C                G Am              D
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then
Em7                         A7
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
Em7                A7
It's lonely out in space
C         G   Am             D
On such a timeless flight as this

G                                     C
And I think it's gonna be a long long time
                                  G
Til touchdown brings me 'round to find
                                   C
I'm not the man they think I am at home
           G         A7
Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
C                                   G
Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone

Em7                           A7
Mars ain't the kinda place to raise your kids
Em7                  A7
In fact it's cold as hell
C                  G  Am                      D
And there's no one there to raise them if you did
Em7                               A7
And all this science, I don't understand
Em7                          A7
It's just my job five days a-week
C      G  Am            D
Rocket man - - - rocket man

G                                     C
And I think it's gonna be a long long time
                                  G
Til touchdown brings me 'round to find
                                   C
I'm not the man they think I am at home
   G                 A7
Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man

C                                   G
Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone
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  7x
