Rocket Man – Elton John Chords/Lyrics

Rocket Man
Elton John
Key: Bb
Capo: 3

Capo 3rd, play in G

Note: The chords below are the actual pitches, and *not* relative to the capo.
The first chord relative to the capo should be an Em7, to an A9, etc.
Sorry about the weird enharmonics (the A# should be a Bb, etc.). This is how my OnSong app insisted on handling it.

Verse:
Gm7                                  C9
She packed my bags last night   pre-flight
Gm7               C9
Zero hour, nine A.M.
D#               A#        Cm      F
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then
Gm7                         C9
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
Gm7                 C9
It's lonely out in space
D#        A#/D      Cm       F
On such a timeless flight

Chorus:
A#                     D#
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
                                   A#
'Til touchdown brings me 'round to find
                                   D#
I'm not the man they think I am at home
           A#/D      C9
Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
D#                                  A#
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone

Repeat Chorus

Verse:
Gm7                           C9
Mars ain't the kinda place to raise your kids
Gm7                  C9
In fact it's cold as hell
D#                 A#/D      Cm                F
And there's no one there to raise them if you did
Gm7                               C9
And all this science, I don't understand
Gm7                         C9
It's just my job five days a-week
D#     A#/D Cm          F
Rocket man - - - rocket man

Chorus:
A#                     D#
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
                                   A#
'Til touchdown brings me 'round to find
                                   D#
I'm not the man they think I am at home
           A#/D      C9
Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
D#                                  A#
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone

D#                          A#
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
D#                          A#
And I think it's gonna be a long, long time
