 Ground control to Major Tom 
Am         Am7/G             D7/F#
 Take your protein pills and put your helmet on

 (Ten) Ground control (Nine) to Major Tom (Eight)

 C                               E7                          F
 This is ground control to Major Tom, you've really made the grade 
         Fm             C                     F
 And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear 
          Fm                C              F
 Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare


[Chorus 2]

 This is Major Tom to ground control, I'm stepping through the door 
         Fm            C             F
 And I'm floating in a most peculiar way 
         Fm              C           F
 And the stars look very different today

Here am I sitting in a tin can far above the world

Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do

C                                    E7                       F
Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles, I'm feeling very still 
      Fm                 C                  F
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go 
        Fm              C              F
Tell my wife I love her very much, she knows 
G                 E7-9            Am                     Am7/C
Ground control to Major Tom, your circuits dead, there's something wrong 
        D7
Can you hear me, Major Tom? 
        C/G
Can you hear me, Major Tom? 
        G
Can you hear me, Major Tom? 

Can you...

Sorry about the second verse. it was fine when i submitted it, but know it's all messed up. The chord changes are at the same times as the first verse though.

You can easily correct it!

Have you got any tips on how to play the solo part? I find those chords sounding not too good, even though they appear to be correct.

Nice work, though!

which solo are you speaking of? For the first section (blastoff) I tend to strum rather quickly using a metal slide (tap it on slightly after you strike the chord and slide up a fret or two, do this several times). The portion after the chorus (both first and last) I just continue the D-DUD-DUUUU-DU pattern I use for the whole song, works pretty good on acoustic.
