My Morning Jacket - Rocket Man

Capo on 3rd fret my friends :)

When you see the two A chords followed by a C, play this, it sounds right according to the recording,
to me at least.

[Verse]
Em                           A
She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Em               A       A C 
Zero hour nine a.m.
C               G  Am              D     
And I’m gonna be high...    as a kite by then
Em                         A
I miss the earth so much I miss my wife
Em                 A       A C
It’s lonely out in space
C          G    Am               D  
On such a ti..    -meless flight

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

[Verse 2]
Em                              A
Mars ain’t the kind of place to raise your kids
Em                   A         A C
In fact it’s cold as hell
C                 G      Am              D 
And there’s no one there to raise them if you did
Em                             A
And all this science I don’t understand
Em                           A
It’s just my job five days a week
      C       G   Am      D
A rocket   man..        rocket man

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

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