Em  Baug, Em7  Baug (x2)

Break:

      Am7       D9        G/F       Em9
Do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do,
      Am7       B7sus   B7    Em 
Do do do, do do do,  do do do-oo.

Interlude:

Em  Baug, Em7  Baug (x2)

Verse 1:

  Em         Baug      Em7   Baug
I longed for you since I was born;
  Em    Baug  Em7      Baug      D7sus    D7   D7sus  D7, B7
A woman sensi-tive and warm, and that you were.

     Em        Baug        Em7       Baug
With pride and strength no one would test,
    Em       Baug Em7     Baug       D7sus   D7   D7sus  D7, B7
But yet have femi-nine fi-nesse, and so much more.

Chorus 1:

            Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket; gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from Heaven,
                                 Bm7b5            B7sus  E7
You dropped me back down to this cold, cold world.

            Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket; gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from Heaven,
                                 Bm7b5            B7sus  E7
You dropped me back down to this cold, cold world.

Interlude:

Em  Baug, Em7  Baug (x2)

Verse 2:

  Em     Baug        Em7     Baug
A female Shakespeare of your time,
     Em       Baug    Em7     Baug      D7sus    D7   D7sus  D7, B7
With looks to blow Pi-casso's mind; you were the best.

     Em   Baug       Em7       Baug
Your body moved with grace and song,
     Em     Baug    Em7     Baug    D7sus    D7   D7sus  D7, B7
Like sympho-nies by Bach or Brahms, neverthe-less.            Oh, oh;

Chorus 2:

            Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket; gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from Heaven,
                                 Bm7b5            B7sus  E7
You dropped me back down to this cold, cold world.

            Cmaj7
You took me riding in your rocket; gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from Heaven,
                                 Bm7b5            B7sus  E7
You dropped me back down to this cold, cold world.

Break:

      Am7       D9        G/F       Em9
Do do do, do do do, do do do, do do do,
      Am7       D#7sus
Do do do, do do do,

Verse 3:

    Fm      Caug    Fm7     Caug
The passion burning in your heart,
      Fm          Caug      Fm7    Caug   D#7sus       D#7  D#7sus  D#7, C7
Would make hell's fire seem like a spark; where did it go?

     Fm       Caug      Fm7  Caug
Just why that you would over-night,
     Fm      Caug     Fm7  Caug         D#7sus D#7  D#7sus  D#7, C7
Turn love to stone as cold as ice, I'll never  know.

Chorus 3:

            C#maj7
You took me riding in your rocket; gave me a star.
But at a half a mile from Heaven,
                                 Cm7b5            C7sus  F7
You dropped me back down to this cold, cold world.

You dropped me back down to this cold, cold world. Cold, too cold.

You dropped me back down to this cold, cold world.

You dropped me back down to this cold, cold world.
C7sus                      F7
 (I would not do that to a dog).

You dropped me back down to this cold, cold world.
