The North

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

G    Bm    Em    G/D    C    Dsus4    G

Have you seen the North
Em                            G/D
That cold grey place
C                                     G/B
Don't want its shadow anymore
Em C      D  Dsus4 C/D  G
On my face
A man grows bitter
Em       G/D   C
We're a bitter race
Some of us never get to see
   D      C/D   G
A be-   tter   place

Bm   Em  G/D  C  Dsus4  G

In the Northern Skies
There was a steel cloud
It used to follow me around
But I don't see it now
There's a farm in the rain
And a little farmhouse
There were a young man's eyes
Looking south

Bb6                        A+        A7
The North was my mother
But I no longer need her
Bb6                                        A+      A7
You trade your roots and your dust
For a face in the river

F/C                                Bb
And a driven rain that washes you
A+     A7                  Dm
To a different shore
              G/B            C
There's a North in us all
           Eb               Bb/D            F/C      C
But my North can't hold me anymore
