He packed my racks last night - pre-ride
She packed my bags last night - pre-flight
Em7 A Asus4
Cuddle hour, five A.M.
Zero hour, nine A.M.
C G Am D Dsus4 Dsus2
And I'm gonna be miles away by 10
And I'm gonna be high as a kite by then
Em7 A Asus4
I love this earth so much, I love my guy
I miss the earth so much, I miss my wife
Em7 A Asus4
So I bike from place to place
It's biking saves this place
This lovely biking space
It's lonely out in space
C G Am D Dsus4 Dsus2
A fight and flight for this life it is
It's both a fight as this
That's why I crank like this
On such a timeless flight as this

G C
And I think it's gonna be a long fun ride
And I think it's gonna be a long long time
G
Til bike and bod bring me 'round to find
Til touchdown brings me 'round to find
C
I'm all the woman I need to be in this zone
I'm not the man they think I am at home
G A Asus4
I know, ya know, I'm a sprocket mom
Oh yo, yo, yo, I'm a sprocket mom
Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
C G C
Spocket mom, spinning out the miles in the ecozone (2x)
Rocket man, burnin' out his fuse up here alone (2x)

Em7 A Asus4
Cars ain't a kind way to travel with your kids
Mars ain't the kinda place to raise your kids
Em7 A Asus4
They make earth hot as hell
In fact it's cold as hell
C G Am D Dsus4 Dsus2
And cars turn them into wimps if you did
And there's no one there to raise them if you did

Em7 A Asus4
And this climate science, yeah I understand
And all this science, I don't understand
Em7 A Asus4
Keeping it cool is my job eight days a week
It's just my job five days a week
C G Am D Dsus4 Dsus2
Sprocket mom sprocket mom

G C
And I think it's gonna be a long sweet ride (ch)
And I think it's gonna be a long long time (ch)
G
Til this bike and my bring me 'round to find
Til touchdown brings me 'round to find
C
I'm all the woman I need to be in this zone
I'm not the man they think I am at home
G A Asus4
I know, ya know, I'm a sprocket mame
Oh no, no, no, I'm a rocket man
C G C
Spocket mom, spinning out the miles in the ecozone (2x)
Rocket man, burnin' out his up here alone (2x)

C G
And I think it's gonna be a long sweet ride
And I think it's gonna be a long long time
C G
And I think it's gonna be a long rad ride
And I think it's gonna be a long long time

There is a Am/G missing between the Am and the D in the verse and the chorus (similar run down he uses in Your Song, a song also in G and uses this run done on the "I hope you don't mind.." sections) and there is also a little Gsus4 (3 2 0 0 1 3) in the outro and on the last chorus. Easy to play just play the G like this 3 2 0 0 0 3 and slip your first finger on the B string. So it goes C - G - Gsus4 - G. Not sure about the Dsus2 either 🙂
