Em7                            A7
 She packed my bags last night pre-flight
Em7                A7   
 Zero hour, nine a.m.
C                 G Am Am/G              D      
 And I'm gonna be high      as a kite by then
Em7                          A7
 I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
Em7                 A7   
 It's lonely out in space
C           G  Am  Am/G       D      
 On such a timeless flight

G                                       C                                             G
 And I think it's gonna be a long, long time 'til touch down brings me round again to find
                                   C                G         A7
I'm not the man they think I am at home, oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
C                                   G              C
Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone
G                                       C                                             G
 And I think it's gonna be a long, long time 'til touch down brings me round again to find
                                   C                G         A7
I'm not the man they think I am at home, oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
C                                   G              C
Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone

Em7                              A7
 Mars ain't the kind of place to raise your kids
Em7                    A7
 In fact, it's cold as hell
C                   G        Am      Am/G       D      
 And there's no one there to raise them if you did
Em7                            A7
 And all this science, I don't understand
Em7                           A7
 It's just my job five days a week
          C  G  Am  Am/G           D      
 A rocket man,           a rocket man

G                                       C                                             G
 And I think it's gonna be a long, long time 'til touch down brings me round again to find
                                   C                G         A7
I'm not the man they think I am at home, oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
C                                   G              C
Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone
G                                       C                                             G
 And I think it's gonna be a long, long time 'til touch down brings me round again to find
                                   C                G         A7
I'm not the man they think I am at home, oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
C                                   G
Rocket man, burning out his fuse up here alone
C                             G
 And I think it's gonna be a long, long time  (repeat and fade)
