    Cmaj7        Gsus2  F            C         F        D/F#      Gsus4 G (w.d.)

      Grapefruit moon, one star shining, shining down on me

    Cmaj7        Gsus2            F    C            F        D/F#      Gsus4 G

      Heard that tune, and now I'm pining, honey, can't you see? 

    Am                    G      F             C                         

      'Cause every time I hear that melody -

    Am                G         F (w.d.)

    Something  breaks inside

    Cmaj7              Gsus2  F                 C    F     D/F#  G

      the grapefruit moon, one star shining, can't turn     back the tide

    Never had no destination, could not get across

    Cmaj7   Gsus2   F                 C       F        D/F#    Gsus4 G

    You became           my inspiration, oh but what a cost

    Am                G        F             C                         

    'Cause every time I hear that melody

    Am                G         F (w.d.)

    Something breaks inside

    Cmaj7                Gsus2  F                C              F    D/F#  G

    And the grapefruit moon,  one star shining, is more than     I can hide

    Cmaj7  Gsus2    F     C                   F         D/F#   Gsus4 G (w.d.)

    Now I'm smoking cigarettes and I strive for puri   -   ty

    Cmaj7  Gsus2   F                     C       F      D/F#    Gsus4 G

    And I    slip          just like the stars into obscuri   -   ty

    Am           G        F             C                         

    But every time I hear that melody

    Am         G      F (w.d.)

    Puts me up a tree

    Cmaj7                Gsus2  F                C          F   D/F#  G

    And the grapefruit moon, one star shining, is all that       I can see

     

    / C (w.u.) - - - / F - - - / x3

    C (hold)
