Capo 3 

Verse 1:

              E                         A
Now if you're gonna play your games with me
       A               A/G        E      D
Like a leaf in the the top of the tree
    A                                  E           D
You better watch your step when you're coming back down
         G                  C
From the city on out to the sea

Verse 2:
            E                   A
And if your brothers come after me
           A         A/G         E      D
With their horses so wild and so free
        A                        E        D
I'll be waiting at the gate in a terrible state
         G                 C
With the man who holds the key
          G               C
And he'll treat you quite carelessly

Prechorus: 
       A                    E        D
For he knows my face from a previous place
       G                    C
From a country in a foreign land
         G                 C             G/B
Throwing dice in a game of chance on the sand
      A                 E            D
But I lost my cool, and fate loves a fool
        G                           C
Now I'm standing on the edge of the past
      G         D/F#             Em         D          A    C
In my spacesuit hoping that this woman will call me at last

Chorus:
              E    D           A              G     C        A7
'Cause I'm an astronaut on the shores of this grand illusion  
        E       D           A             G       C     
And I'm falling down at the sound of this beating heart
  A7               C
Yeah, this beating heart
  A7               D     B7,Em,D/F#, G,A 
Yeah, this beating heart 

Bridge: 
E,D,A 

A,G,E 

     E                             D            A
Your friends all tell you that you gotta make a change
      A                     G            E
Gotta make this break in so many kind of ways
    E                          D            A
The sky to the trees, from the trees to the earth'
         A                             G             E
From the earth to your grave, from the grave to your birth

E                                D              A
Your heart's been heavy with the silver and the gold 
        A                           G            E
But the gold ain't yours 'cause his heart's been sold
       C                D
For to pay your lover's way
        G       G/F#  A7
And the ship it sails today    E

E                   D              A
Oh my, my now we're rollin' by and by
       A           G         E
Got my children to light the way
E                   D              A
Oh my, my now we're rollin' by and by
       A           G         E
Got my brothers to light the way
E                   D              A
Oh my, my now we're rollin' by and by
       A          G         E
Got my sisters to light the way
          C                D
You gotta pay your lover's way
        G       G/F#  A7
And the ship it sails today

Verse 3:

             E                          A
So if you're gonna play your games with me
       A             A/G    E
Better use some real trickery
    A                            E            D
You better get smart 'cause that lock on your heart
            G                   C
It ain't as heavy as it used to be
     G               C
In a land without no gravity 
        A                      E       D
In this windless place, on the edge of space
          G                           C
Where the saints and the sinners have passed
         G                       C
With the dead satellites and the trash
      G         D/F#             Em         D/F#       A
In my spacesuit hoping that this woman will call me at last

              E    D           A              G     C        A7
'Cause I'm an astronaut on the shores of this grand illusion  
        E       D           A             G       C     
And I'm falling down at the sound of this beating heart
  A7               C
Yeah, this beating heart
  A7               D     B7,Em,D/F#, G,A 
Yeah, this beating heart
