Goodbye Yellow Brick Road
Words & Music:
Bernie Taupin & Elton John
F C Dm C Bb C F
Gm C F Bb
When are you gonna come down? When are you going to land?
Gm C F
I should have stayed on the farm, should have listened to my old man.
Gm C F Bb
You know you can't hold me forever - I didn't sign up with you.
I'm not a present for your friends to open.
F Db Eb Ab Db Db C7
This boy's too young to be singing the blues... Ah...... Ah....
F A7 Bb F
So, goodbye yellow brick road where the dogs of society howl.
D7 Gm C F
You can't plant me in your penthouse I'm going back to my plow.
Dm A Bb Db
Back to the howling old owl in the woods - hunting the horny black toad.
Db Eb F C Dm F
Oh, I've finally decided my future lies.
Bb C Db Eb Ab Db Db C F
Beyond the yellow brick road... Ah..... Ah......
What do you think you'll do then? I bet they shoot down your plane.
It'll take you a couple of vodka & tonics to set you on your feet again.
Maybe you'll get a replacement, there's plenty like me to be found.
Mongrels who ain't got a penny,
Sniffing for tidbits like you on the ground... Ah... Ah...
