Dan Dare (Pilot Of The Future)

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Rock Of The Westies


F7    /A    /C    F7    /A    /C
F7    /F#    G    Bb    C

                                     E7
Can you tell me how old Dan might have done it
F7                               Bb    Cm
If he'd been here now, holy cow
                                     C         
My stars might have been read on the planet Mars
E7                                                F7
Because I don't have foresight to see
                               Cm
If we still be together in the twenty first
                         C                G
In the twenty first century


He's our flying ace, pilot of the future
In an endless space, holy cow
My eyes never saw a rocket that was quite that size
Because I don't have the energy
To be cat and mouse for the champions
For the champions of destiny


   F7   F7\A    F7\C F7\A
So long captain Dan

          F7           F7\A       F7\C
I fail to see what motivates your hands

F7\A C        
Goodbye restless night

           D                                                                  Bb
You know I loved Dan Dare, but I couldn't make his flight

   C   F/C C    A
So long,     so long


F                                    F/A  F/C 
Dan Dare doesn't know it
                           F F\A
He doesn't know it
F\C                      F    F/F# G
He doesn't know it
        Bb          C
But I liked the Macon


So long captain Dan
I fail to see what motivates your hands
Goodbye restless night
You know I loved Dan Dare, but I couldn't make his flight
So long,     so long

Dan Dare doesn't know it
He doesn't know it
He doesn't know it
But I liked the Mecon

Dan Dare doesn't know it
He doesn't know it
He doesn't know it
But I liked the Mecon

Dan Dare doesn't know it
He doesn't know it
He doesn't know it
But I liked the Mecon

Dan Dare doesn't know it
No he doesn't know it
No he doesn't know it
But I liked the Mecon.
