Hi. Elton sings this song in the key of E, so I'm posting it in this key to
reflect the original version. To play this version on an aocustic guitar you
hyst don't need to play the E/B chords. Hope you enjoy it! Fantastic song by
the way!

SKYLINE PIGEON

Year:  1969
Album:  EMPTY SKY
Writers:  Elton John\ Bernie Taupin

(E  B\D#  A\C#  B  A  B  E)*

	E	        B\D#
Turn me loose from your hands

       A B    	      E
Let me fly to distant lands

     F#\A#  		     A
Over green fields, trees and mountains

E\B	B7	   E
Flowers and forest fountains

A	       E\B   B7	    E
Home along the lanes of the skyway


	 E		 B\D#
For this dark and lonely room

	     A  E\B  B7	     E
Projects a sha___dow cast in gloom

		F#\A#
And my eyes are mirrors

       A
Of the world outside

	 E\B
Thinking of the way

B7		  E
That the wind can turn the tide

	  A
And these shadows turn

     E\B    B7   E
From purple into grey


	   A
For just a Skyline Pigeon

E\B		B7
Dreaming of the open

E
Waiting for the day

       A
He can spread his wings

    E\B  B7   E   G#7\D#
And fly away again

     C#m D#7	 	G#m
Fly away skyline pigeon fly

	    A
Towards the dreams

       E\B          B7    E    G#7\D#
You've left so very far behind

     C#m D#7	 	G#m
Fly away skyline pigeon fly

	    A
Towards the dreams

       E\B          B7    E
You've left so very far behind


	    E
Just let me wake up in the morning

       G#m\D#
To the smell of new mown hay

	     A		      D7
To laugh and cry, to live and die

       E
In the brightness of my day

	  F#\A#
I want to hear the pealing bells

	   A
Of distant churches sing

	    E\B
But most of all please free me

B7		 E
From this aching metal ring

    A		  E\B		   E
And open out this cage towards the sun


	   A
For just a Skyline Pigeon

E\B		B7
Dreaming of the open

E
Waiting for the day

       A
He can spread his wings

    E\B  B7   E   G#7\D#
And fly away again

     C#m D#7	 	G#m
Fly away skyline pigeon fly

	    A
Towards the dreams

       E\B          B7    E    G#7\D#
You've left so very far behind

     C#m D#7	 	G#m
Fly away skyline pigeon fly

	    A
Towards the dreams

       E\B                   B7    E  B  C#m  E\B  A  E\B B7 E
You've left so very, so very far behi_____nd.
