C
My  name is Opportunity
F G
I've  wandered near and  far
C F
And  with my sister  Spirit
C G
I've  explored the sands of  Mars

C
We  came here fourteen years ago
F G
And  went our separate  ways
C F
guess we lived on  borrowed time
C G
They  gave us ninety  days
C
We'll  go no more a-roving
F G
A- roving in the  night
C F
We'll  go no more a- roving
C G
Let the  moons shine so  bright
C G C
We'll  go no  more a- roving.
C
Nine  years ago my sister
F G
Got her wheels stuck in the  sand
C F
But  still that's twenty  times as long
C G
As  anyone had  planned.

C
My  batteries are getting low
F G
And  dust is in the  sky
C F
So  wish me luck and  fare thee well
C G
will not say good bye

C
We'll  go no more a-roving
F G
A- roving in the  night
C F
We'll  go no more a- roving
C G
Let the  moons shine so  bright
C G C
We'll  go no  more a- roving.
C
If  I don't make it through the storm
F G
No  need to shed a  tear
C F
When  you come up to  visit me
C G
I'll  still be standing  here.

C
And  when some day you find me out
F G
Up on the Martian  plain,
C F
Just  fix me up and  send me off
C G
A- roving once ag ain.
C
We'll  go once more a-roving
F G
Both  in the day and  night
C F
We'll  go once more a- roving
C G
Where the  moons are shining  bright
C G C
We'll  go once  more a- roving.
