Intro:
    E  Dbm  E    A
    A  Dbm  Abm  B

Verse:
E                   E         
  It started with a low light,
E                        E                 B
  next thing I knew they ripped me from my bed.
                      Dbm        
And then they took my blood type,
B                       B              E
  they left a strange impression in my head.
                    E      
You know that I was hopin',
E                         E                   B
  that I could leave this starcrossed world behind.
                     Dbm  
But when they cut me open,
B                      B
  I guess I changed my mind.

Pre-Chorus:
        A      B               Dbm       Abm
And you know I might have just flown too far
         A          B                  Dbm              Abm     
from the floor this time, 'cos they're calling me by my name.
            A                          
And they’re zipping white light beams, 
B            Abm            Dbm
disregarding bombs and satellites.
B              B             B              B
  That was the turning point,  that was one lonely night.

Chorus:
E                       Dbm          
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,
E                         A
  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
A                     Dbm                 
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,
Abm                B
  it's all in your mind."

Verse:
E                      E        
  Well now I'm back at home and,
E                     E              B
  I'm looking forward to this life I live.
                    Dbm      
You know it's gonna haunt me,
B               B              E
  so hesitation to this life I give.
                          E    
You think you might cross over,
E                           E                     B
  you're caught between the devil & the deep blue sea.
                   Dbm  B                      B
You better look it over,  before you make that leap.

Pre-Chorus:
        A        B           Dbm        Abm
And you know I'm fine, but I hear those voices
   A         B           Dbm        Abm
at night sometimes, that justify my claim.
        A                     B                
And the public don't dwell on my transmission, 
        Abm        Dbm
'cos it wasn't televised.
B                B             
  But it was the turning point,
B            B
  oh, what a lonely night!

Chorus:
E                       Dbm          
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,
E                         A
  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
A                     Dbm                 
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,
Abm                B
  it's all in your mind."
E                       Dbm          
  The starmaker says it ain't so bad,
E                         A
  the dream-maker's gonna make you mad.
A                     Dbm                 
  The spaceman says, "Everybody look down,
Abm                B
  it's all in your mind."

Dbm            Dbm               Dbm        Dbm
  My global position systems are vocally addressed.
Dbm            Dbm          Dbm              Dbm
  They say the Nile used to run from East to West.
Dbm            Dbm          A   B              A
  They say the Nile used to run,  from East to West.
    Abm         Dbm        B
I'm fine, but I hear those voices
   E         Gbm      A       B
at night sometimes.

    It’s even easier if you go on -4 and it’ll sound better with a capo on the 4th fret if you do so.

  2. THANK YOU Annie_44! I cannot say thanks enough! :)

  3. This song is the best!! I found it easiest to play at +3.
