Capo 4th fret

C    Am  C    F
F    Am  Em   G

Verse 1:
C                   C         C                        C                 G
  It started with a low light,  next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed.
                      Am         G                       G              C
And then they took my blood type,  they left a strange impression in my head.
                    C      C                         C                   G
You know that I was hopin',  that I could leave this starcrossed world behind.
                      Am  G                      G
But when they cut me open,  I guess I changed my mind.

Prechorus 1:
        F      G                Am        Em
And you know I might have just flown too far
         F          G                   Am               Em     
from the floor this time, 'cos they're calling me by my name.
            F                          G             Em             Am
And they’re zipping white light beams, disregarding bombs and satellites.
G              G             G              G
  That was the turning point,  that was one lonely night.

Chorus 1:
C                        Am          C                         F
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
F                      Am                  Em                G
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."

Verse 2:
C                      C        C                     C              G
  Well now I'm back at home and,  I'm looking forward to this life I live.
                     Am      G               G              C
You know it's gonna haunt me,  so hesitation to this life I give.
                          C    C                           C                     G
You think you might cross over,  you're caught between the devil & the deep blue sea.
                    Am  G                      G
You better look it over,  before you make that leap.

Prechorus 2:
        F        G             Am         Em
And you know I'm fine, but I hear those voices
   F         G            Am         Em
at night sometimes, that justify my claim.
        F                     G                         Em         Am
And the public don't dwell on my transmission, 'cos it wasn't televised.
G                G             G            G
  But it was the turning point,  oh, what a lonely night!

Chorus 2:
C                        Am          C                         F
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
F                      Am                  Em                G
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."
C                        Am          C                         F
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
F                      Am                  Em                G
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."

Am   Am   Am   Am

Middle Eight:
Am             Am                Am         Am
  My global position systems are vocally addressed.
Am             Am           Am               Am
  They say the Nile used to run from East to West.
Am             Am           F   G              F
  They say the Nile used to run,  from East to West.
    Em          Am         F
I'm fine, but I hear those voices
   C         Dm       F       G
at night sometimes.

Chorus 3:
C                        Em          F                          Em
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
G                      Am                 F                  G
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,  it's all in your mind."
C                        Em          F                          Em
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
G                      Am                 F G                  C
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,    it's all in your mind."

Outro:
                    Am  C    F

               F    Am  Em  G

               C    Am  C    F
It's all in my mind.
               F    Am  Em  G
It's all in my mind.
               C    Am  C    F

               F    Am  Em  G

               C

Nice, I like this version even more than my own one, it has a fuller sound because more of the lower strings are involved
