C                       Em
Ground control to Major Tom
C                       Em
Ground control to Major Tom
Am        Am7               D7
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on


C                       Em
Ground control to Major Tom
C                             Em
Commencing countdown, engines on
Am    Am7              D7
Check ignition and may Gods love be with you


C                               E7
This is ground control to Major Tom
                       F
You ve really made the grade
        Fm             C                     F
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
        Fm                C              F
Now its time to leave the capsule if you dare


C                              E7
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


    Fmaj7
For here
     Em   
am I sitting in a tin can
Fmaj7         Em
Far above the world
Bb              Am
Planet earth is blue
            G             F
And there s nothing I can do

Interlude: Fmaj7  Em  A  C  D  E

C                                    E7
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 me wife I love her very much she knows


G                 E7
Ground control to Major Tom
     Am                     Am7
Your circuits dead, there s something wrong
        D7
Can you hear me, Major Tom? 
        C
Can you hear me, Major Tom? 
        D7
Can you hear me, Major Tom? 

Can you....


    Fmaj7
For here
     Em   
am I sitting in a tin can
Fmaj7         Em
Far above the world
Bb              Am
Planet earth is blue
            G             F
And there s nothing I can do

I miss him sooooooooooooooooooooooo much?????

Sergio

Me too!

cool

i found that Am also worked in place of the Fmaj7

dasPenguin

i luv this song

Cora Benson

Also with the Interlude i do, Fmaj7 Em A, then I hit my uke twice then I do C D E, and hit my uke twice.
It makes it sound kind of like the Interlude in the actual song

Cora Benson

I like to do the Interlude 2 times and on the second time I do it I trashcan E (trashcan is pretty much doing DUDUDUDU super fast) and then I transition right into the next C and continue with the song

EliBeeli

If you are finding the Fmaj7 tricky, try substituting it with an F. It sounds pretty good and it’s a lot easier.

There’s another part before the interlude: c f g a

I wonder what people think of replacing the D7 that follows Am and Am7 in “Take your protein pills and put your helmet on” with Am6, fingered 2020 (aka F#dim). It’s essentially a D7 without a D string, but I like the sound of it progressing from Am to Am7 to Am6.
