Major Tom- Peter Shilling 

Intro – E A
Vs. – E AC D
Ch – G Dm A C

E
Standing there alone, the ship is waiting
A
All systems are go, are you sure?
E                                          A
Control is not convinced, but the computer has the evidence
           C     D               E
No need to abort, the count down starts. 

Watching in a trance, the crew is certain 
Nothing left to chance, all is working
Trying to relax, up in the capsule, Send me up a drink 
Jokes major tom, the count goes on

Ch
                   G       Dm      A         C
Four three two one earth below us… drifting, falling
G        Dm          A        C       E   
Floating weightless… calling, calling home.

Second stage is cut, we’re now in orbit 
Stabilizers up, running perfect
Starting to collect, requested data What will it affect? 
When all is done, thinks major tom. . 

Back at down control, there is a problem
Go to rockets full, not responding
Hello major tom, are you receiving? Turn your thrusters on 
We’re standing by, there’s no reply.

Ch
Four three two one earth below us… drifting, falling
Floating weightless… calling, calling home.

Interlude 

Across the stratosphere, a final message
“Give my wife my love… and nothing more…”

 
Far beneath the ship, the world is mourning 
They don’t realize, he’s alive
No one understands, but major tom see’s.
Now the life commands, this is my home, I’m coming home

Ch
Earth below us… drifting, falling
Floating weightless… coming home
Earth below us… drifting, falling
Floating weightless… coming home. 

Earth below us… drifting, falling
Floating weightless… coming, coming home.
