Intro: G G G C D D D C G G G C

[D]             [G]                 [D]                    [G]
Standing on the moon, I got no      cobweb on my shoe.
Standing on the moon, I see the     battle rage below.
Standing on the moon, I see a       shadow on the sun.
Standing on the moon, where talk is cheap and vision true.

[D]             [G]                [C]
Standing on the moon, I'm          feeling so alone and blue.  I see the
Standing on the moon, I see the    soldiers come and go.  There's a
Standing on the moon, the stars go fading one by one.  I
Standing on the moon, but I would  rather be with you.

[D]              [G]                [C]              [G]
Gulf of Mexi     co, as             tiny as a        tear.
metal flag be    side me someone    planted long a   go.
hear a cry of    victory, a         nother of de     feat.
Somewhere in San Francisco, on a    back porch in Ju ly,

[C]  [G]              [D]     [G]     [C]
The  coast of Cali    fornia  must be somewhere over here,
Old  Glory standing   stiffly Crimson white and indigo,
A    scr*p of age old lulla   by down some forgotten street.
just looking up at    heaven  at this crescent in the sky,

[C]    [G]   [C]
over   here.
indi   go.
<no lyrics -- play chords and then go to BRIDGE>
in the sky. <go to FINALE>

BRIDGE:

[C]   [D]              [Am]        [D]          [Am]    [D]
I see all of Southeast Asia, I can see El Salva dor.  I hear the cries

   [G]              [C]   [G/B]    [Am]       [D]           [Am] 
of children and the other songs of war.  It's like a mighty melody that

[D]                      [Am] [G/B] [C]                          
rings down from the sky.            Standing here upon the moon, I 

[G]               [D] [G]      [C] [G/B]    [Am] 
watch it all roll by, all roll by, all roll by,  

[G]          [F] [F#] [G] [C]
all roll by.                   <go to 4th verse>

FINALE:

[D]                        [C]             [G]  [C] [G]
Standing on the moon, with nothing left to do.  A   lovely view of

[D]     [G]     [C]                    [G]            [D]     [G]
heaven, but I'd rather be with you.  A lovely view of heaven, but I'd

[C]                         [G]  [C]     [D]              [C]     [G]
rather be with you, be with you, be with you.  I'd rather be with you.
