Space Oddity


by David Bowie
( Fmaj7 - - - /    / Em - - - /    //)

 I:	Ground control to Major Tom
Ground control to Major Tom
Take you protein pills and put your helmet on

C - - - /    / Em - - - /   /   x4  / Am - - - / Am/G - - - / D7/F# - - - /    //

 I:	Ground control to Major Tom
Commencing count down, engines on
Check ignition, and may God's love be with you

add: (C9+11 - - - /     // wild )

 	This is ground control to Major Tom
You've really made the grade
And the papers want to know who's shirts you wear
Now it's time to leave the capsule if you dare

C - - - /    / E - - - /    / F - - - /    / Fm - - - / C - - - /
F - - - /    / Fm - - - / C - - - / F - - - /    //

This is Major Tom to ground control
I'm stepping through the door
And I'm floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today

 C:	For here am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue, and there's nothing I can do

Fmaj7 - - - /    / Em - - - /    /  x4  / Bbmaj7 - - - / Asus2 - - - / Gadd9 - - - / F - - - /    /
( C - F - / G - A - /  x2  / Fmaj7 - - - /    / Em - - - /    / 
  A - - - /    / C - - - /    / Em - - - /    //)

Though I've past one hundred thousand miles
I'm feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much...  She knows

 B:	Ground control to Major Tom
Your circuits dead, there's something wrong					
Can you hear me Major Tom?							
Can you hear me Major Tom?							
Can you hear me Major Tom?							
Can you...

G - - - / E7 - - - / Am - - - / Am/G - - - / D - - - /    / D/C - - - /    / D/B - - - /    //

 C:	Here am I floating round my tin can
Far above the world
Planet earth is blue, and there's nothing I can do
