Elton John – Candle in the wind [chord/kord]


G C
Goodbye England's rose, may you ever grow in our hearts
C G C
You were the grace that placed itself where lives were torn apart
G C
You called out to our country, and you whispered to those in pain.
G C
Now you belong to heaven, and the stars spell out your name.


Chorus:
D D7
And it seems to me you lived your life
G C
Like a candle in the wind
G D
Never fading with the sunset when the rain set in
C Em
And your footsteps will always fall here along England's greenest hills
G D C
Your candles burned out long before your legend ever will.

Verse no. 2:
G C
Loveliness we've lost, these empty days without your smile
G C
This torch we'll always carry for our nation's golden child
G C
And even though we try, the truth brings us to tears
G C
All our words cannot express the joy you brought us through the years.


Chorus:
D D7
And it seems to me you lived your life
G C
Like a candle in the wind
G D
Never fading with the sunset when the rain set in
C Em
And your footsteps will always fall here along England's greenest hills
G D C G
Your candles burned out long before your legend ever will.


Verse no. 3:
G C
Goodbye England's rose, may you ever grow in our hearts
G C
You were the grace that placed itself where lives were torn apart
G C
Goodbye England's rose, from a country lost without your soul
G C
Who'll miss the wings of your compassion more than you'll ever know.


Chorus:
D D7
And it seems to me you lived your life
G C
Like a candle in the wind
G D
Never fading with the sunset when the rain set in
C Em
And your footsteps will always fall here along England's greenest hills
G D C G
Your candles burned out long before your legend ever will.

Repeat last part of Chorus...
C Em
And your footsteps will always fall here among England's greenest hills
G D C G
Your candles burned out long before your legend ever will.
