There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
I've started playing acoustically around the local pubs in my area and found this song
(my favourite Bowie Number!) seems to go down quite well.

Intro:- Fmaj7    Em     Fmaj7    Em

C                       Em
Ground control to Major Tom  (x2)
Am        C/G               D/F#
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
C                       Em   C                            Em
Ground control to Major Tom, commencing countdown engines on
Am       C/G            D/F#
Check ignition, and may Gods' love be with you

C                               Em
This is Ground Control to Major Tom
Em                     F
You've really made the grade
F       Fm             C                     F
And the papers want to know who's shirts you wear
F        Fm                C              F
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

C                           Em
This is Major Tom to ground control
Em                      F 
I'm stepping through the door
F       Fm              C             F
And I'm floating in the most peculiar way
F       Fm              C            F
And the stars look very different, today
F   Fmaj7        Em                    Fmaj7            Em
For here am I sitting in a tin can, far above the world
Dm              Am               Em            F
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do

C F G A A ... C F G A A ... Fmaj7 Em A C D E......

C                                    Em
Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles
Em               F
I'm feeling very still
F     Fm                 C                  F
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
F       Fm              C              F
Tell my Wife I love her very much, She knows!

G                 E               Am           
Ground Control to Major Tom, your circuits dead
Am      Am7                      D(add9)
There's something wrong, can you hear me Major Tom?
D(add9) C                           G
Can you hear me Major Tom?, can you hear me Major Tom? 
G          Fmaj7        Em             
Can you... Here am I floating Round my tin can
Fmaj7            Em     Dm              Am
Far above the World, planet Earth is blue
Am          Em            F
And there's nothing I can do

C F G A A ... C F G A A ... Fmaj7 Em A C D E

Enjoy, Andy.

The chord you denoted F` is Fmaj7. Hope that helps.

And the 'take your protein pills..'

is infact;

Am Am7 (Hammer on third fret, string6), Am, Dm7 (Think)
