Major Tom- Peter Shilling
Intro ? E A
Vs. ? E A ? C D
Ch ? G Dm A C
[E]Standing there alone, the ship is waiting
[A]All systems are go, are you sure?
[E]Control is not convinced, but the computer [A]has the evidence
No need to [C]abort,[D] the count down [E]starts.
Watching in a trance, the crew is certain
Nothing left to chance, all is working
Trying to relax, up in the capsule, Send me up a drink
Jokes major tom, the count goes on
Four three two one [G]earth be[Dm]low us? [A]drifting, [C]falling
[G]Floating [Dm]weightless? [A]calling, [C]calling [E]home.
Second stage is cut, we?re now in orbit
Stabilizers up, running perfect
Starting to collect, requested data What will it affect?
When all is done, thinks major tom. .
Back at down control, there is a problem
Go to rockets full, not responding
Hello major tom, are you receiving? Turn your thrusters on
We?re standing by, there?s no reply.
Four three two one earth below us? drifting, falling
Floating weightless? calling, calling home.
Across the stratosphere, a final message
?Give my wife my love? and nothing more??
Far beneath the ship, the world is mourning
They don?t realize, he?s alive
No one understands, but major tom see?s.
Now the life commands, this is my home, I?m coming home
Earth below us? drifting, falling
Floating weightless? coming home
Earth below us? drifting, falling
Floating weightless? coming home.
Earth below us? drifting, falling
Floating weightless? coming, coming home.
