Verse 1:

C           Dm7  F         C        F   Em   D7      G
 Grapefruit moon, one star shining, shi-ning down on me.
C           Dm7  F            C       F  Em   D7        G
 Heard that tune, and now I'm pining, ho-ney, can't you see?

Chorus 1:

Am          Em     F         C             Am        Em        F
 'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.
C                   Dm7  F         C        F     Em   Dm7  G    C
 And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, can't turn back, the tide.

C  Dm7, Em7  F, C, C  Em, F

Verse 2:

C      Dm7     F     C       F     Em  D7    G
 Never had, no desti-nation, could not get a-cross.
C       Dm7  F         C       F   Em  D7     G
 You be-came, my inspi-ration, oh, but what a cost.

Chorus 2:

Am          Em     F         C             Am        Em        F
 'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.
C                   Dm7  F         C        F  Em        Dm7  G    C

Verse 3:

C        Dm7     F     C              F      Em  D7   G
 Now I'm smoking, ciga-rettes, and I, strive for puri-ty.
C      Dm7  F              C         F  Em D7    G
 And I slip, just like the stars, in-to ob-scuri-ty.

Chorus 3:

Am          Em     F         C             Am        Em        F
 'Cos every time I hear that melody, well, something breaks in-side.
C                   Dm7  F         C           F   Em   Dm7  G    C
 And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, is all that I,    can see..
