I rewrote the chords as I best heard them from the actual Owl City song but in a
key.  They have basic inspiration drawn from version 1
it already having been posted on here.  Although far from perfect this version has a few
most notably the timing for when to play the chords.  Also this is intended as a
friendly version (standard
but should work on guitar just fine.  Jam with your uke friends! Yay!

Hot Air Balloon by Owl City


           C
We wrote a prelude
        F        G
To our own fairy tale
              C
And bought a parachute
      F             G
At a church rummage sale
           C           Am
And with a mean sewing machine
    F        G
And miles of thread
             C          Am
We sewed the day above L.A.
   F        G
In navy and red


           C
We wound a race track
             F              G
Through your mom's kitchen chairs
               C
And fought the shadows back
           F             G
Down your dark basement stairs
         C                 Am
I lit a match, then let it catch
    F           G
To light up the room
             C              Am
And then you yelled as we beheld
    F                 C
An old maroon hot air balloon


*CHORUS*:
C                   G
I'll be out of my mind
     Am                F
And you'll be out of ideas
       C
Pretty soon
          G
So let's spend
     Am            F
The afternoon in a cold hot air bal-
 C                    G
-eave your jacket behind
     Am                F              C
Lean out and touch the treetops over town
         G
I can't wait
    Am
To kiss the ground
     F                  C
Wherever we touch back down


Am        F   C
La la la laa laaa la-ah-la-
 Am        F    C
-ah la la laa laaa


             C
We drank the Great Lakes
      F        G
Like cold lemonade
              C
And both got stomach aches
          F           G
Sprawled out in the shade
             C                  Am
So bored to death you held your breath
       F           G
And I tried not to yawn
             C                Am
You made my frown turn upside down
            F           G
And now my worries are gone


*CHORUS* (x2):
C                   G
I'll be out of my mind
     Am              F
And you'll be out of ideas
       C
Pretty soon
          G
So let's spend
     Am            F
The afternoon in a cold hot air bal-
 C                    G
-eave your jacket behind
     Am                F              C
Lean out and touch the treetops over town
         G
I can't wait
    Am
To kiss the ground
     F                  C
Wherever we touch back down
