[Verse]

Em

Standing there alone, the ship is waiting.

Am                D

All systems are go: "are you sure?"

Em

Control is not convinced, but the computer

Am              D               C  Am

Has the evidence: no need to abort.

                Em

The countdown starts.

Em

Watching in a trance, the crew is certain.

Am                    D

Nothing left to chance, all is working.

Em

Trying to relax up in the capsule

Am                  D             C  Am

"Send me up a drink", jokes Major Tom.

              Em

The count goes on...

[Chorus]

B

Four, three, two, one

G         D     Am        C

Earth below us, drifting, falling.

G        D           Am       C       Em

Floating weightless, calling, calling home...

[Verse]

Em

Second stage is cut, we're now in orbit.

Am            D

Stabilizers up, runnning perfect.

Em

Starting to collect, requested data.

Am                  D             C     Am

"What will it affect, when all is done?"

             Em

Thinks Major Tom.

Em

Back at ground control, there is a problem.

Am                   D

"Go to rockets full.". Not responding.

Em

"Hello Major Tom. Are you receiving?"

Am                    D                C   Am

"Turn the thrusters on, we're standing by."

             Em

There's no reply.

[Chorus]

B

Four, three, two, one

G         D     Am        C

Earth below us, drifting, falling.

G        D           Am       C       Em

Floating weightless, calling, calling home...

[Verse]

Em

Across the stratosphere, a final message:

 Am                    D

"Give my wife my love."

             Em     Am D C Am

Then nothing more.

Em

Far beneath the ship, the world is mourning.

Am                D

They don't realize: he's alive.

Em

No one understands, but Major Tom sees.

Am                     D            C   Am

"Now the light commands, this is my home,

           Em

I'm coming home."

[Chorus]

G         D     Am        C

Earth below us, drifting, falling.

G        D           Am       C

Floating weightless, comming home

G         D     Am        C

Earth below us, drifting, falling.

G        D           Am       C

Floating weightless, comming, comming

[Outro]

G    D   Am  C

Ho...o...o...me
