[C]    [G]Hey now now  [C]    [G]
verse 1
[Am]Didn't know what time it was, lights were low oh oh
[G]I leaned back on my radio oh oh
[D]Some cat was layin' down some [D7]rock 'n' roll, lotta' soul, he [G]said.[A]  [C]  [A]
[Am]Then the loud sound did seem to fade.
[G]Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase.
D D7 B(single note repeat)
That weren't no DJ. That was hazy cosmic jive. B A (chords under)

Ther's a s[G]tarman [Em]waiting in the sky
[Bm]He'd like to come and [Bm/A]meet [bass]us,
but he [D]thinks he'd blow our minds.
There's a [G]starman, [Em]waiting in the sky.
[Bm]He's told us not to bl[Bm/A]ow it[bass]
Cause he [D]knows it's all worthwhile.

He told me:
[C]Let the children lose it.
[G]Let the childr[Em]en use it.
[C]Let all the[D] children boogie.

verse 2
I had to phone someone, so I picked on you.
Hey, that's far out so you heard him too.
Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two.
Look out your window I can see his light.
If we can sparkle he may land tonight.
Don't tell your poppa' or he'll get us locked up in fright.

chorus (twice)

go out on bridge
