Bennie and the Jets
Elton John
Start on E

The other tabs I have found are close but if you want the chords to sound 
exactly like the recording, this should get you there.This song isn't really 
difficult to play as long as you're comfortable with barre chords.  I wrote 
out the chord formations I use but if you know a better way, go ahead and 
use them.  I think the way i wrote out the chords make the transistions a 
little easier.  Anyway, enjoy!

Chords Used:

*Note: I find the easiest way to play the G#aug is to act like your playing 
an F chord, except one string up, and then add your pinkie on the 4th fret of the 
low E string*

   We'll kill the fatted calf tonight so stick around
       Am7                 Bm7                  C  
You're gonna hear electric music solid walls of sound

     Gmaj7
Say, Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
 Am7                                     C

Intro:

Am7       D7
Hey kids, plug into the faithless

Maybe they're blinded but Bennie makes them ageless
Am7          D7                              Em7
   We shall survive, let us take ourselves along
          Am7                          Bm7
Where we fight our parents out in the streets
                              C
To find who's right and who's wrong

     Gmaj7
Say, Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
