[Verse]

Gm                           C
She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Gm               C       C Dm 
Zero hour nine a.m.
D#               A#  Cm  A#            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       C Dm
It’s lonely out in space
D#          A#    Cm           A#    F  
On such a ti..    -meless flight


[Chorus]

A#                                   
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
D#
Till touch down brings me round again to find
A#
I’m not the man they think I am at home
D#        A#      C            C Dm
Oh no no no I’m a rocket man
D#                                 A#            D#
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone
A#                                   
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
D#
Till touch down brings me round again to find
A#
I’m not the man they think I am at home
D#        A#       C            C Dm
Oh no no no I’m a rocket man
D#                                 A#             D#
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone


[Verse 2]

Gm                              C
Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids
Gm                   C         C Dm
In fact it’s cold as hell
D#                 A#      Cm          A#      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
   C  Dm   D#  A# Cm A#         F
A rocket   man..        rocket man


[Chorus]

A#                                   
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
D#
Till touch down brings me round again to find
A#
I’m not the man they think I am at home
D#        A#       C            C D
Oh no no no I’m a rocket man
D#                                 A#           D#
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone
A#                                   
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
D#
Till touch down brings me round again to find
A#
I’m not the man they think I am at home
D#        A#       C            C D
Oh no no no I’m a rocket man
D#                                 A#          D#
Rocket man burning out his fuse up here alone


[Outro]

A#                               D#
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
A#                               D#
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
A#                               D#
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time
A#                               D#          A#
And I think it’s gonna be a long long time

Its much easier to play with a capo on the 3rd fret. sounds more accurate as well... Gm=Em C=A Dm=Cm D#=C A#=G Cm=Am F=D

im seconding hondo, but I can see why robbie does it that way, its just easier to play as you dont need any barré to play the song. If you have to avoid barré, you're most likely just a play every now and then guitarist that wants to play and sing along without having to really get music theory in the first place. thats what tabs are for in the first place imo. and if you avoid music theory, you can ignore the difference between Em and Gm too as long as you get all the other chords accordingly

a comment on the tab:
I use D# - A# - Cm - D# - F instead of D# - A# - Cm - A# - F as suggested in the chords in the third and 6th line of the verse, sounds better to me

jim james plays it with a capo on the 3rd. who cares how you play it as long as you're playing it. beautiful song.
