Candle in the Wind
Elton John

[G]Goodbye Norma Jean, though I neve[C]r knew you at all
You had the grace to hold[G] yourself while those around you crawled[C]
They crawled out of the w[G]oodwork and they whispered[C] into your brain
They sent you on a tread[G]mill and they made you change your name[C]


{start_of_chorus}
[D]And it seems to me you lived your li[D7]fe
Like a c[G]andle in the wind[C]
Never kn[G]owing who to cling to when the r[D]ain set in
And I would [C]have liked to've known you but I was ju[Em]st a kid
Your candle burned out lo[D]ng before your l[C]egend ever did[G]
{end_of_chorus}


[G]Loneliness was tough, the toughest role you [C]ever played
Hollywood created a [G]superstar and pain was the price you [C]paid
And even when you [G]died, oh, the press still hounded [C]you
All the papers had to [G]say was that Marilyn was found in the [C]nude
(Chorus)



[G]Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never [C]knew you at all
You had the grace to [G]hold yourself while those around you [C]crawled
[G]Goodbye Norma Jean, from a young man in the [C]twenty second row
Who sees you as [G]something more than sexual, more than just our Marilyn Mon[C]roe
(Chorus)



{t:I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues}

{st:Elton John}

[G]Don't wish it away

[Em]Don't look at it like it[F]'s forever[C][F][C][F][C][F]

[C]Between you and me[G]

I could honestly s[Bm]ay that th[F]ings can only get
bett[C]er[F][C][F][C][F]

And w[C]hile I'm a[G]way b[B7]ust out the demons ins[Em]ide 
G7

And it won't be l[C]ong before you and me r[G]un

To the place in our hea[Am]rts wh[F]ere we hid[G]e[Am7][G7]

{c:Chorus :}

And I gu[C]ess that's why they c[G]all it the blue[F]s

Time on my ha[C]nds could be tim[G]e spent with yo[F]u

[C]Laughing like childr[G]en

Living like love[Am]rs

[C]Rolling like thun[F]der, under the co[D]vers

[F]And I guess that's why they [G]call it the blues[C][Em][F]

{c:Verse 2}

Just stare into space

Picture my face in your hands

Live for each second

Without hesitation, never forget I'm your man

Wait on me girl, cry in the night if it helps

But more than ever I simply love you

More than I love life itself

{t:Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me}
{st:Elton John / George Michael}
{st:(Words & Music by Elton John & Bernie Taupin)}

{c:Intro:}
[C] [C/Bb] [F/A] [C/G] [F] [Dm]
[G]I can't light [C/G] [G7] no more of your d[F/C]arkne[C]ss [F/C] [C]
[F]All my pictures seem to fade to black and white[G] [C/G] [G] [C/G]
[G]I'm growing tired[C/G] [G7] and time stands still be[F/C]fore [C]me [C7/E]
[F]Frozen here[Bb/F] [F]on the ladder of my [G]life [C/G] [G7]

It's much too late [C/G] [G7] to save myself from [C]falling [F/C] [C] [C7/E]
[F]I took a chance [Bb/F] [F] and changed your way of life[G] [C/G] [G]
[G7]But you misread [C/G] [G] my meaning when I [F/C]met yo[C]u [C7/E]
[F]Closed the door and left me blin[C/G]ded by the light [G] [F/G]

{c:Chorus:}

[C]Don't let the sun go [C/Bb]down on me
[Am7]Although I search myself, it's always [D7/F#]someone else I see
[C/G]I'd just allow a fragment of your [F/G]life [G7] to wander free [C] [C/Bb]
But [F/A]losing everything is like the [Dm]sun [C/E] goin[F]g d[C/G]own [F/G] on [C]me

{c:(repeat intro chords)}

I can't find oh the right romantic line
But see me once and see the way I feel
Don't discard me (baby no) just because you think I mean you harm
But these cuts I have, oh they need love to help me heal Oh..

{c:(repeat chorus)}

{c:Ending:}
..down on[C] me [C/Bb] [F/A] [Ab] [Bb] [C]

{t:Daniel}
{st:Elton John/Bernie Taupin}

[C] Daniel is travelling tonight on a plan[Dm]e.
[G] I can see the red tail lights, h[E7]eading for Spai - [Am]n. Oh and,
[F] I can see Dan - [G]iel waving goodbye.[Am]
God it looks[F] like Daniel.[G] Must be the clouds[F/G] in my eyes[C].

[F] Daniel, my brother, you are [C]older than me.
Do you still [F]feel the pain of the scar[C]s that won't heal?
Your eyes have [Am]died but you see more than [F]I.
[Ab]Daniel you're a s[C]tar [A7]in the face of the sky[G7].

They say Spain is pretty, though I've never been.
Daniel says it's the best place he's ever seen.
Oh and he should know, he's been there enough.
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much.

Daniel, my brother, you are older than me.
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal?
Your eyes have died but you see more than I.
Daniel you're a star in the face of the sky.

Daniel is travelling tonight on a plane.
I can see the red tail lights, heading for Spai - n. Oh and,
I can see Dan - iel waving goodbye.

God it looks[F] like Daniel.[G] Must be the clouds[F/G] in my eyes[C].

{t:Rocket Man}
{st:Elton John}

[Em7]She packed my bags last night - pre-f[A9]light
[Em7]Zero hour, nine A.[A9]M.
[C]And I'm gonna be [G]high as a [Am]kite by [D]then
[Em7]I miss the earth so much, I [A9]miss my wife
[Em7]It's lonely out in s[A9]pace
[C]On such a [G]timeless [Am]flight as[D] this

{c:Chorus:}
[G]And I think it's gonna be a long long [C]time
Til touchdown brings me 'round to [G]find
I'm not the man they think I am at [C]home
Oh no, no, [G]no, I'm a [A9]rocket man
[C]Rocket man, burnin' out his up [G]here alone

[Em7]Mars ain't the kinda place to [A9]raise your kids
[Em7]In fact it's cold as [A9]hell
[C]And there's no one t[G]here to [Am]raise them if you [D]did
[Em7]And all this science, I don't unde[A9]rstand
[Em7]It's just my job five days a[A9]-week
[C]Rocket ma[G]n -[Am] - - rocket [D]man

{c:Chorus}
[G]And I think it's gonna be a long long [C]time
Til touchdown brings me 'round to [G]find
I'm not the man they think I am at [C]home
Oh no, no, [G]no, I'm a [A9]rocket man
[C]Rocket man, burnin' out his up [G]here alone
[C]And I think it's gonna be a [G]long long time
[C]And I think it's gonna be a [G]long long time
