Fmaj  Em  Fmaj  Em
Fmaj  Em  Fmaj  Em

[Pre-Verse]
C                         Em            
  Ground control to Major Tom 
C                         Em 
  Ground control to Major Tom
Am          Am/G              D/F# 
  Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
C                         Em           
  Ground control to Major Tom    
C                              Em       
  Commencing countdown engines on
Am        Am/G           D/F# 
  Check ignition and may God's love be with you

[Verse 1]
C                                E
This is ground control to Major Tom      
                         F
You've really made the grade
        Fm              C                    F
And the papers want to know whose shirt you wear     
         Fm                 C              F
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare
  C                              E
This is Major Tom to ground control      
                          F
I'm stepping through the door
         Fm            C             F
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
         Fm              C           F
And the stars look very different today

[Chorus]
    Fmaj7     Em                     
For here am I sitting in a tin can   
Fmaj7         Em
Far above the world
Bb              Am               G             F
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do   

[Instrumental]

Fmaj7 Em  A  C  D  E

[Verse 2]
C                                      E 
Though I'm past one hundred thousand miles    
                   F
I'm feeling very still
       Fm                 C                  F
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
         Fm              C             F
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows

[Bridge]
G                 E7              Am                      C/G
Ground control to Major Tom, your circuit's dead, there's something wrong
        D/F
Can you hear me Major Tom?  
        C 
Can you hear me Major Tom?
        G
Can you hear me Major Tom? Can you...

[Chorus]
Fmaj7     Em                    
Here am I floating 'round my tin can   
Fmaj7         Em
Far above the Moon
Bb              Am               G             F
Planet Earth is blue and there's nothing I can do
