Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
F#m C#Will you do me a favor, pianoman, please?
A EI want you to write me a song
A E C#7They call me the Hero of Antelope’s Run
F#m C#m F#mAnd I’ve got to show em' they’re wrong
A EYou see, it all started a week ago
F#m C#mIn the bar down on corridor three
F#m E A C#There was nobody there but the regular bums:
F#m C#m F#mTwo losers, the barman, and me
F#m C#mSlopping up booze in the north corner booth
A Bm C#Was the old man they called Captain Jed
F#m C#m‘Cause he owned a tramp freighter, the old Antelope
F#m C#m F#mA ship that, like him, was half dead
D A C#mNow Molly, they say, was a crack pilot once
Bm E AA gal with a brilliant career
F#m E A C#But then she started doping on Regulus One
F#m C#m F#mAnd finally washed out down here
[Verse 2]
F#m C#And me, well, I wanted the Navy, bad
A EBut it seems that they didn’t want me
A E C#7So I stopped chasing stars, started sweeping up bars
F#m C#m F#mFor bed, board, and all my drinks free
A EIt was quiet that night, with the docks closed down
F#m C#mThere was nothing due in for a week
F#m E A C#Not a ship was in port but the old Antelope
F#m C#m F#mWhen the red alert started to shriek:
F#m C#mThe whole station shook like a hurt living thing
A Bm C#Then the lights dimmed and faded away
F#m C#mThen the gravity went, and the air pumps cut out
A C#m F#mAnd the bartender started to pray
D A C#m“Ah, stow that bilge, head for the Antelope now!”
Bm E AJed’s voice cut the dark like a knife
F#m E A C#“The station reactors gone critical load
F#m C#m F#mSo run to the docks for your life!”
[Verse 3]
F#m C#When we got to the docks, we found waiting out there
A EEvery soul that had been left alive
A E C#7They begged with their eyes for poor old Captain Jed
F#m C#m F#mTo tell them all how to survive
A E“Break out the suits,” said the captain to them
F#m C#m“For it’s dark and it’s airless and cold
F#m E A C#But I swear I can get you all out of here safe
F#m C#m F#mPacked in to the Antelope’s hold.”
F#m C#m“Molly,” he asked, “Can you navigate?”
A Bm C#“Aye,” she said. “Who do we have for a crew?”
F#m C#m“The Antelope needs only three hands,” he said
F#m C# F#m“And I think our young friend here will do.”
D A C#mThe confident look that he flashed at me then
Bm E AMade my heart turn over with pride
F#m E A C#I never once thought about backing away
F#m C#m F#mI think I would rather have died
[Verse 4]
F#m C#mTwo hundred alive in the Antelope’s hold
A EAnd the Captain, and Molly, and me
A E C#7We slammed the locks just as the station blew wide
F#m C#m F#mJed hit the main jets to get free
A ENow, that kind of G-force is rough on the heart
F#m C#mToo much for his ticker to take
F#m E A C#So when we came around and we saw how he lay
F#m C#m F#mWe knew Captain Jed wouldn’t wake
F#m C#m So I took the comm, and the engineer board
A Bm C#And Molly took helm and the nav
F#m C#mWith the manual spread out all over the deck
F#m C#m F#mAnd her mind for what they didn’t have
D A C#mShe worked at that comp like a crazy machine
Bm E AWhile her hands shook like grass in the breeze
F#m E A C#But her skills were still sharp, and she jumped us three times
F#m C#m F#m Never minding the shakes and DTs
[Verse 5]
F#m C#Three jumps made clean, only one more was left
A EWhen the ship’s alarm started to blast -
A E C#7Her old worn-out seals had come loose in the stress
F#m C#m F#m We were losing our heat and air fast
A EOn the bridge, there was only one vacuum suit left
F#m C#mWell, they say Lady Luck is stone blind
F#m E A C#“Heads or tails,” was the question I started to ask
F#m C#m F#mWhen I felt myself hit from behind
F#m C#mWhen I came to again, I was sealed in the suit
A Bm C#She was belted down tight in her chair
F#m C#mWith her hands on the console, a smile on her lips
F#m C#m F#mAnd the ice on her face and her hair
D A C#m“Here’s the instructions to get us all home,”
Bm E AI saw she had left on the screen
F#m E A C#“If any old shipmates should ask after me
F#m C#m F#mJust tell em' I finally died clean.”
[Verse 6]
F#m C#I made the last jump just like she told me to
A EAnd I brought the ship in like she said
A E C#7They call me a hero now, for what I did
F#m C#m F#mBut they don’t mention Molly or Jed
A ESo write me that song now, pianoman, please
F#m C#mAnd sing it out often and loud
F#m E A C#So they all know the story of one kind of hero
F#m C#m F#mThe kind that makes everyone proud
F#m C#m For some kind of heroes are lunkheads like me
A Bm C#Who only do things that they’re told
F#m C#mAnd some kinds of hero are out for the glory
F#m C#m F#mThey’re heroes on purpose, and bold
D A C#mSome become heroes for bravery, sure
Bm E And some just because all is lost
F#m E A C#But a few are true heroes, like Molly and Jed
F#m C#m F#mWho give without counting the cost
