Your Song

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the Album Elton John

Eb    Ab/Eb     Bb/Eb    Ab/Eb

Eb                   Abmaj7     Bb/D              Gm   
It's a little bit funny          this feeling inside
Cm                     Cm/Bb         Am7b5   Ab
I'm not one of those who can   easily hide
  Eb/Bb                     Bb          G/B       Cm    
I   don't have much money but boy if I did
Eb               Fm7                Ab                  Bb    Bbsus   Bb
I'd buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
Eb                 Fm7        Ab                  Eb  Ab/Eb  Eb
My gift is my song and this one's for you

Bb/D                   Cm           Fm7            Ab
And you can tell everybody this is your song
Bb/D             Cm               Fm7              Ab
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
Cm/Bb                          Am7b5                   Ab6
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
         Eb/G         Ab6            Ab                        Bb  Bbsus  Bb
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

Eb   Ab/Eb   Bb/Eb  Ab/Eb

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen
