Verse 1:

D           Am7  C         D        C   Bm   A7      D
 Grapefruit moon, one star shining, shi-ning down on me.
D           Am7  C            D       C  Bm   A7        D
 Heard that tune, and now I'm pining, ho-ney, can't you see?

Chorus 1:

Em          Bm     C         D             Em        Bm        C
 'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.
D                   Am7  C         D        C     Bm   Am7  D    D
 And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, can't turn back, the tide.

Verse 2:

D      Am7     C     D       C     Bm  A7    D
 Never had, no desti-nation, could not get a-cross.
D       Am7  C         D       C   Bm  A7     D
 You be-came, my inspi-ration, oh, but what a cost.

Chorus 2:

Em          Bm     C         D             Em        Bm        C
 'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.
D                   Am7  C         D        C  Bm        Am7  D    D

Verse 3:

D        Am7     C     D              C      Bm  A7   D
 Now I'm smoking, ciga-rettes, and I, strive for puri-ty.
D      Am7  C              D         C  Bm A7    D
 And I slip, just like the stars, in-to ob-scuri-ty.

Chorus 3:

Em          Bm     C         D             Em        Bm        C

 And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, is all that I,    can see..
