Verse:
Gm7                              C     Csus4 
She packed my bags last night - pre-flight   
Gm7              C  Csus4
Zero hour, nine a.m. 
Eb                Bb          Cm   F Fsus4 Fsus2 
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then    
Gm7                        C         Csus4 
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife  
Gm7                 C Csus4 
It's lonely out in space  
Eb            Bb       Cm     F   Fsus4 Fsus2 
On such a timeless flight as this    

Chorus:  
  Bb                                    Eb 
And I think it's gonna be a long long time  
                                   Bb      
Til touchdown brings me 'round to find  
                                    Eb 
I'm not the man they think I am at home  
           Bb          C     Csus4 
Oh no, no,no, I'm a rocket man  
  Eb                                  Bb          Eb 
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone         -2x-

Verse:
Gm7                              C       Csus4 
Mars ain't the kinda place to raise your kids  
Gm7                    C  Csus4 
In fact it's cold as hell  
Eb                   Bb           Cm             F Fsus4 Fsus2 
And there's no one there to raise them if you did    

Gm7                               C      Csus4 
And all this science, I don't understand  
Gm7                           C   Csus4 
It's just my job five days a week  
Eb      Bb    Cm     F Fsus4 Fsus2 
Rocket man    rocket man    

Chorus: 
  Bb                                    Eb 
And I think it's gonna be a long long time  
                                    Bb 
Til touchdown brings me 'round to find  
                                     Eb 
I'm not the man they think I am at home  
             Bb           C     Csus4 
Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man  
  Eb                              Bb          Eb 
Rocket man, burnin' out his up here alone        -2x- 

Outro:
  Eb                              Bb 
And I think it's gonna be a long long time  
  Eb                              Bb 
And I think it's gonna be a long long time
