"Pete’s a rocket scientist." By Room full of Walters.
Tabbed by Craig and Terry Barnes.
Copyright 1997 Word Records.

Intro:Eb, Bb, Ab, F, G.

      Eb                 Bb 
He sinks into his telescope
         Ab
And plots his course.
        Eb                    Bb
The other room, his mother cries,
       Ab
His father snores.
Eb             Bb                  Ab
And everybody laughs at him
 Eb      Bb                     Ab                  
Everybody thinks he’s strange.

Intro.

Eb                     Bb          
In his head are second thoughts 
     Ab
of spinning rage,
      Eb                         Bb       
He carries books with formulas 
Ab
dog ear paged.
Eb             Bb                   Ab
And everybody laughs at him
Eb      Bb                      Ab
Everybody thinks he’s strange.

Pre chorus:
	C                          	
And hey, wouldn’t it be great
                   Eb
If he really got up.
        C  
And hey, wouldn’t it be great 
                   Eb        Bb
If he really flew…. Flew .

Chorus:
        Eb          Bb      Ab          F, G  
	Pete’s a rocket scientist,
        Eb                          Bb             Ab     F, G 
	Pete says that he’s goin to the moon.
        Eb          Bb      Ab          F, G 
	Pete’s a rocket scientist,
         Eb                           Bb                      Ab   F, G
	And he won’t be comin home real soon.

C
There’s water in his eyes,
                         G
Not behind his ears.
C
After all this time,
                                Ab           Bb
He’s got to face his fears, His fears.

(Play chorus chords.)
        Eb                             Bb           
The countdown starts, he shuts the hatch,
        Ab
And lights the fuse.
         Eb                Bb
Four-hundred and twenty feet,
        Ab
And then it blew.
Eb             Bb                  Ab
And everybody laughs at him
Eb       Bb                    Ab     
Everybody thinks he’s strange.

Pre chorus.
Chorus.
Eb                       Bb                      Ab
And he won’t be comin home real soon…xlots.


I love this band, I think they would be huge if they had a simpler name, 
but hey it’s them. This song goes off, I love it. Listen to the song to 
get the chord changes.
