Em                                 A       Em              A
She packed my bags last night pre-flight, zero hour, nine A.M.
C                G/B  Am  G              D/F#       
And I'm gonna be high,      as a kite by then
Em                            A           Em                      A
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife, it's so lonely out in space
C          G/B  Am    G     D/F#  D/A   D
On such a time- less  flight


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

   Chorus X1

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


Chorus [x2 again]

C                            G    (=C)
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time (repeat and fade)

 (for =C, hammer on and pull off the C chord while leaving the G bass note)
