Rocket Man
Written by Elton John & Bernie Taupin



Chords


Song

1.

She packed my bags last night - pre-flight,
Zero hour, nine a.m.,
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then,
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife,
It's lonely out in space,
On such a timeless flight as this.

chorus:

And I think it's gonna be a long long time,
'til touchdown brings me 'round again to find,
I'm not the man they think I am at home,
Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man,
Rocket man, burnin' out this fuse up here alone.

2.

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

chorus:

coda:

And I think it's gonna be a long long time,
And I think it's gonna be a long long time.
