F#m              E                    D 
When I was young all I wanted was the moon 
F#m                E                     D 
Hung that National Geographic map in my room 
   A              E         F#m 
In seventh grade, Mythology 101 
C#m                       D 
They called me Little Endymion 
D 
You remember me now  
F#m                  E                   D 
Space was the object of all my country's desire 
F#m                           E                        D 
And the skies of my childhood were laced with launching pad fire 
    A                 E                           F#m 
And I was the boy who stood under a streetlamp at night 
C#m                            D 
Waiting for those strange blue lights 
D 
To come take me away  
E         D 
Shoot the moon 
                               A 
Set me down in the Sea of Tranquillity 
                   E 
Just the stars and me 
          D 
Shoot the moon 
                              A 
Give me a home in the 21st century 
         A/G#  F#m 
A little less  gravity 
E            D 
I could fall free 
          F#m   E  D     F#m E D 
Shoot the moon  
F#m                          E                             D 
If I'd been ten years older, I might have been tripping on Yasgur's 
farm 
F#m                              E                   D 
But I probably would have been a Phantom flying over Viet Nam 
     A              E                    F#m      
In a dream of altitudes where blue turns black 
C#m               D 
And never looking back 
 
At the pieces on the ground  
C#m                                F#m 
But I saw the choppers rise out of Saigon's fall 
C#m                                       F#m 
And my fingers traced the writing on the long black wall 
C#m                                          G 
And I knew there'd be no spaceships in my future 
              F#m                    E         B    F#m E 
I guess I was born a little late, or way too soon.  
E         D 
Shoot the moon 
                               A 
Set me down in the Sea of Tranquillity 
                    E 
Just the stars and me 
          D 
Shoot the moon 
                              A 
Give me a home in the 21st century 
         A/G#  F#m 
A little less  gravity 
E             D 
We could fall free 
          F#m   E  D     F#m E D 
Shoot the moon  
F#m                          E                        D 
Well, a quarter of a million miles isn't really that far 
F#m                    E                     D 
It took me two Chevys, but I've done it in a car 
        A            E                   F#m  
Driving from town to town with this old guitar 
C#m       D 
Built in 1969 
 
One small step for mankind  
E          D 
Shoot the moon 
                               A 
Set me down in the Sea of Tranquillity 
                   E 
Just the stars and me 
          D 
Shoot the moon 
                              A 
Give me a home in the 21st century 
         A/G#     F#m 
A little less gravity 
C#m           D    F#m E  D  F#m E  D  F#m E D     B 
It is my destiny
