A# | F | C | G D
Asus4 Am E Dm | Am E G D

Verse 1:
 C                       Am
Lonely boy gazing on the afternoon
                  Em
People drifting cross the surface
                 G
Of the twilight day

                         C
There's a little yellow man
                 Am
Standing by the railway station
                   Em                                G
Painting portraits on the brickwalls of Billie Holloway

Chorus:
A#
  Lovely lady smile,
F                          C
  Dance, my dear, I'm only operating
                 G    D
On "Lassie Come Home"

Asus4                            Am
  "This was authentic you" she spoke,
                              E      Dm
"This was authentic you who blew me cold"
Am                        E
  He had no chance to realize,
                                G
It hit her straight between the eyes
              D
So I've been told

Verse 2:
C                                    Am
In the park, she's giving out some photographs 
                      Em
On which she's giving out some photos
                    G
Of what she hands around

                  C
"They videoed a ghost tonight",
                   Am
She said before I turned it out
                    Em                             G
"It rode an orange paper-bike, and left without a sound."

Chorus:
A#
  Keep on riding, Sir
F                        C
  Open up the door and shout it out:
              G          D
"Lassie come home, come home!"

Asus4                             Am
  "This was authentic you" she spoke,
                              E                Dm
"This was authentic you who blew, who blew me cold"
Am                       E
  I had no chance to realize,
                                G
It hit her straight between the eyes
              D
So I've been told

Verse 3:
 C                          Am
Lonely girl dancing in the music hall
                      Em
Lightning struck her silver starship
                     G
And turned it into stone

                              C
And now it's falling all the time
                  Am
Into that void beyond her grey eyes
                  Em                           G
Somewhere a telephone is ringing, but nobody's at home

Chorus:
A#
  Hello, junkie sweetheart,
F                           C
  Listen now, this is your captain calling
                 G    D
Your captain is dead.

A#
  Keep on riding, Sir,
F                        C
  Open up the door and shout it out, shout it out
  G             D
Shout it out, shout it out...

A#                  F                   C
  Lassie come home,   Lassie come home,
G  D
  Lassie come home

  Lassie come home,   Lassie come home
G                                 A#   F C G D
  It hit her straight between the eyes

We're falling all the time

Come home!       Lassie come home...
