Candle in the wind - Elton John


[Verse]

E chordE A chordA
Goodbye Norma Jean though I never knew you at all
E chordE A chordA
You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled
E chordE A chordA
They crawled out of the woodwork and they whispered into your brain
E chordE A chordA
They sent you on a treadmill and they made you change your name


[Chorus]

B chordB B7 chordB7
And it seems to me you lived your life
E chordE A chordA
Like a candle in the wind
E chordE B chordB
Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
A chordA C#m chordC#m
And I would have liked to've known you but I was just a kid
B chordB A chordA E chordE
Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did


[Verse]

E chordE A chordA
Loneliness was tough the toughest role you ever played
E chordE A chordA
Hollywood created a superstar and pain was the price you paid
E chordE A chordA
And even when you died oh the press still hounded you
E chordE A chordA
All the papers had to say was that Marilyn was found in the nude


[Chorus]

B chordB B7 chordB7
And it seems to me you lived your life
E chordE A chordA
Like a candle in the wind
E chordE B chordB
Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
A chordA C#m chordC#m
And I would have liked to've known you but I was just a kid
B chordB A chordA E chordE
Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did


[Verse]

E chordE A chordA
Goodbye Norma Jean though I never knew you at all
E chordE A chordA
You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled
E chordE A chordA
Goodbye Norma Jean from a young man in the twenty second row
E chordE A chordA
Who sees you as something more than sexual more than just our Marilyn Monroe


[Chorus]

B chordB B7 chordB7
And it seems to me you lived your life
E chordE A chordA
Like a candle in the wind
E chordE B chordB
Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
A chordA C#m chordC#m
And I would have liked to've known you but I was just a kid
B chordB A chordA E chordE
Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did
