Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road

F   C/E   Dm  Dm C   Bb   F/C C/E  F

Gm7                Bb               C
When are you gonna come down
F                     F/A        Bb
When are you going to land
   Eb                                             C
I should have stayed on the farm
                      F      
I should have listened to my old man

Gm7                               Bb         C
You know you can't hold me forever
  F                F/A       Bb
I didn't sign up with you
     Eb                                 C
I'm not a present for your friends to open
        F                                                    Bbm7  Eb  Ab  Db Bbm7  C
This boy's too young to be singing the blues         Ah  


      F                                A7
So goodbye yellow brick road
                  Bb                             F
Where the dogs of society howl
       D7                                       Gm7
You can't plant me in your penthouse
      C                                   F  C/E
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
     Eb    F              C/E       Dm         Dm/C
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
       Bb        Bb/C             Bbm7     Eb    Ab  Db  Bbm7    C  F
Beyond the yellow brick road                Ah


Gm7                 Bb                 C
What do you think you'll do then
  F                               F/A                  Bb
I bet that'll shoot down your plane
       Eb                                 C7
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
       F
To set you on your feet again

Gm7              Bb               C
Maybe you'll get a replacement
              F                    F/A               Bb
There's plenty like me to be found
Eb                         C   
Mongrels who ain't got a penny
F                
Sniffing for tidbits like you on the ground
