Rocket Man


by Elton John
She packed my bags last night, pre-flight
Zero hour at nine A.M.
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then

Gm - - - /    / C - - - /   /  x4  /
Eb - - - / Bb/D - - - / Cm - - - / Cm/Bb - - - - / F - - - - /    /    /   //

I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
It's lonely out here in space
On such a timeless flight

 C:	And I think it's going to be a long, long time
'Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think that I am at all
Oh no, no, no - I'm a rocket man
Rocket man, burning out my fuse up here alone

Bb - - - /    / Eb - - - /    / Bb - - - /    / Eb - - - / Bb/D - - - / C - - - /     /
Eb - - - /    / Bb - - - /    / Eb - - - /    //

 C:	(Chorus - again)

Mars, this ain't' the kind of place to raise your kids
In fact it's cold as hell
And there's no one there to raise them, if you did

And all this science I don't understand
It's just my job five days a week
Of rocket man - rocket man

 C:	And I think it's going to be a long, long time
'Till touch down brings me round again to find
I'm not the man they think that I am at all
Oh no, no, no - I'm a rocket man
Rocket man, burning out my fuse up here alone

 C:	(Chorus - again)

 T:	And I think it's gonna be a long, long time (repeat as needed)

Bb - - - /    / Eb - - - /    //
