Lyrics and Music by Bernie Taupin and Elton John

Intro: F C/E | Dm Dm/C
       Bb Bb Csus4 C7 | F

Gm                      C     C/E
When are you gonna come down,
F            F/A      Bb    Bb/F
When are you going to land?
  Eb          Eb/Bb         C7
I should have stayed on the farm,
            F                       F F/A
Should have listened to my old man.

    Gm7            Bb        C      C7/E
You know you can’t hold me forever,
  F           F/A     Bb   Bb/F
I didn’t sign up with you,
    Eb    Eb/Bb            C          C7
I’m not a present for your friends to open
     F                             F/Eb C
This boy’s too young to be singing

       Bbm7 Bbm7/F Eb Eb/G
   The blues…
   Ab Ab/C  Db/F  Bbm Bbm/F  C/G C7/E

        F                    A
     So goodbye yellow brick road,
               Bb              F
     Where the dogs of society howl,
         D           D7         Gm
     You can’t plant me in your penthouse,
         C/E       C   C/E F      C/E F
     I’m going back to my plough.

     Dm                      A
     Back to the howling old owl in the woods,
     Bb                     Db
     Hunting the horny back toad,
     Db  Eb   F         C/E      Dm     Csus2 
     Oh, I’ve finally decided my future lies,
       Bb       C            
     Beyond the yellow brick 

   Bbm7 Bbm7/F  Eb Eb/G
   Ab Ab/C  Db/F  Bbm Bbm/F  C/G C7/E  F

What do you think you’ll do then?
I bet that’ll shoot down your plane.
It’ll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
To set you on your feet again.

May 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

       Bbm7 Bbm7/F Eb Eb/G
   The ground…
   Ab Ab/C  Db/F  Bbm Bbm/F  C/G C7/E


   Bbm7 Bbm7/F  Eb Eb/G
   Ab Ab/C  Db/F  Bbm Bbm/F  C/G C7/E  F
