Ground Control to Major Tom
Dm         C
Take your protein pills 
    D
and put your helmet on

Ground Control to Major Tom

Commencing countdown,

 C
This is Ground Control 
         Em
to Major Tom
Em                      F
You've really made the grade
         Fm              C                     F
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
          Fm                C
Now it's time to leave the capsule 
        F
if you dare


C                             E
This is Major Tom to Ground Control
                          F
I'm stepping through the door
          Fm
And I'm floating 
       C            F
in a most peculiar way
          Fm            C             F
And the stars look very different today


    F
For here
      Em
Am I sitting in a tin can
F              Em
Far above the world
Bb                  F
Planet Earth is blue
           G              F
And there's nothing I can do

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


G                   E
Ground Control to Major Tom
       Am
Your circuit's dead,
         G
there's something wrong
        D
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
        C
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
         G
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
       F
Can you....


             Em
Here am I floating 
Em
round my tin can
F              Em
Far above the Moon
Bb                F
Planet Earth is blue
              G           F
And there's nothing I can do.
