Chord Guitar Elton John – Candle in the wind

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.
