Break: 

      Am7       D9 
Do do do, do do do, 
      G/F       Em9 
Do do do, do do do,

Em  E   Em7  E  (x2) 

Verse 1: 

  Em         E         Em7   E  
I longed for you since I was born; 
  Em   E     Em7      E  
A woman sensi-tive and warm, 
    D7sus    D7    D7sus  D7, B7 
And that you were. 

     Em        E  
With pride and strength, 
   Em7       E  
No one would test, 
    Em       E    Em7     E  
But yet have femi-nine fi-nesse; 
    D7sus   D7    D7sus  D7, B7 
And so much more. 

Chorus 1: 

            Cmaj7 
You took me riding in your rocket; 
Gave me a star. 
But at a half a mile from heaven, 
You dropped me back, 
             Bm7/b5            B7sus  E7 
Down to this cold, cold world. 

            Cmaj7 
You took me riding in your rocket; 
Gave me a star. 
But at a half a mile from heaven, 
You dropped me back, 
             Bm7/b5            B7sus  E7 
Down to this cold, cold world. 

Interlude: 

Em  E   Em7  E  (x2) 

Verse 2: 

  Em     E           Em7     E  
A female Shakespeare of your time, 
     Em       E       Em7     E  
With looks to blow Pi-casso's mind; 
    D7sus   D7     D7sus  D7, B7 
You were the best. 

     Em   E          Em7       E  
Your body moved with grace and song, 
     Em     E       Em7     E  
Like sympho-nies by Bach or Brahms; 
D7sus     D7   D7sus  D7, B7 
 Neverthe-less.            Oh, oh; 

Chorus 2: 

            Cmaj7 
You took me riding in your rocket; 
Gave me a star. 
But at a half a mile from heaven, 
You dropped me back, 
             Bm7/b5            B7sus  E7 
Down to this cold, cold world. 

            Cmaj7 
You took me riding in your rocket; 
Gave me a star. 
But at a half a mile from heaven, 
You dropped me back, 
             Bm7/b5            B7sus  E7 
Down to this cold, cold world. 

Break: 

      Am7       D9 
Do do do, do do do, 
      G/F       Em9 
Do do do, do do do, 
      Am7       D#7sus 
Do do do, do do do,

Verse 3: 

    Fm      F       Fm7     F  
The passion burning in your heart, 
      Fm          F         Fm7    F  
Would make hell's fire seem like a spark; 
D#7sus        D#7  D#7sus  D#7, C7 
 Where did it go? 

     Fm       F         Fm7  F  
Just why that you would over-night, 
     Fm      F        Fm7  F  
Turn love to stone as cold as ice, 
     D#7sus D#7   D#7sus  D#7, C7 
I'll never  know. 

Chorus 3: 

            C#maj7 
You took me riding in your rocket;

Down to this cold, cold world.

You took me riding in your rocket; 
Gave me a star. 
But at a half a mile from heaven,

Down to this cold, cold world. 
C7sus       F7 
 (Cold, too cold).

Down to this cold, cold world.

Down to this cold, cold world. 
C7sus                      F7 
 (I would not do that to a dog).

Down to this cold, cold world.
