Intro:
C       G       C       G
        Hey now now

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               D7                      G      A C A 
Some cat was layin' down some   rock 'n' roll, lotta' soul, he  said.
Am
Then the loud sound did seem to fade.
G
Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase.
D               D7          B     A
That weren't no DJ. That was    hazy cosmic jive.

Chorus
        G       Em
There’s a starman waiting in the sky
        Bm              Bm/A
He'd    like to come and        meet us, 
        D
But he thinks he'd blow our minds.
        G       Em
There's a       starman,        waiting in the sky.
        Bm      Bm/A
He's    told us not to blow it 
        D
Cause he        knows it's all worthwhile.
        C
He told me      let the children lose it.
G        Em
Let the children use it.
C       D
Let all the     children boogie.

I had to phone someone, so I picked on you.

Hey, that's far out so you heard him too.
D               D7              G   A C A
Switch on the TV we may pick him up on Channel Two.
C
Look out your window I can see his light.
G
If we can sparkle he may land tonight.
D               D7              B A
Don't tell your poppa or he'll  get us locked up in fright.
