[Verse 1]
G
Do you remember a guy that's been
Em7
In such an early song
C
I've heard a rumour from Ground Control
D
Oh no, don't say it's true
F
They got a message from the Action Man
C          Em                F  
I'm happy, hope you're happy too
                           G
I've loved all I've needed love
          E/G#
Sordid details following
A
The shrieking of nothing is killing me
    E
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and I
G                                     D
Ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
F                                        C     Em
But I'm hoping to kick but the planet is glowing___


[Chorus]
F               G
Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
C              Am
We know Major Tom's a junkie
F                      G
Strung out in heaven's high
           Am       G    Dm
Hitting an all-time low


[Instrumental]
Am   G    Dm    Am   
Am   G    Dm    Am   
Am   G    Dm    Am   
Am   G    Dm    Am   


[Verse 2]
G
Time and again I tell myself
Em7
I'll stay clean tonight
C                                         D
But the little green wheels are following me___
D
Oh no, not again
F
I'm stuck with a valuable friend
C           Em                F
I'm happy, hope you're happy too
                    G                   E/G#
One flash of light  but no smoking pistol
A
I've never done good things
E
I've never done bad things
G                                D
I never did anything out of the blue, woh-oh-oh 
F
Want an axe to break the ice
C                     Em
Wanna come down right now


[Chorus]
F               G
Ashes to ashes, funk to funky
C              Am
We know Major Tom's a junkie
F                      G
Strung out in heaven's high
           Am       G    Dm
Hitting an all-time low


[Bridge]
Dm             Am
My mother said to get things done
      G                    Dm
You'd better not mess  with Major Tom
Am                G
My mother said to get things done
      Dm                    Am
You'd better not mess  with Major Tom


[Fade out]
Am   G    Dm   Am

Nice work cos this is a bloody hard song to work out. All part of the genius that is D Bowie.

Good job ! Also you can pick the bottom 4 strings downwards then back up one string and that gives a nice effect.
