 Am7       D
Hey kids, shake it loose together
    G
The spotlight's hitting something
            G7b9
That's been known to change the weather
  Am7                D
We'll kill the fatted calf tonight
       Em         Am                       Bm
So stick around you're gonna hear electric music
       C
Solid walls of sound


    G
Say, Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
 Am7                         C7            C
But they're so spaced out, Bennie and the Jets
   G
Oh, but they're weird and they're wonderful
   Am7
Oh, Bennie she's really keen

            C                 D
She's got electric boots, a mohair suit

Hey kids, plug into the faithless
  G
Maybe they're blinded
            G7b9
But Bennie makes them ageless
   Am7        D                           Em
We shall survive, let us take ourselves along
         Am                         Bm                 
Where we fight our parents out in the streets
                               C
To find who's right and who's wrong


    G
Say, Candy and Ronnie, have you seen them yet
 Am7                         C7            C
But they're so spaced out, Bennie and the Jets

Oh, but they're weird and they're wonderful

Oh, Bennie she's really keen

Great chords, thanks! On the part:

Em C
You know I read it in a magazine oh,ho
Bb/C G F
B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets

Instead of Bb/C I prefer a Cm there.

I'd also like to add at the same part between the G and F:

Bb/C G F
B-B-B-Bennie and the Jets

Do 6 stabs of the G chord then play notes E,D,B,C then
Do 7 stabs of the F chord then you can 1/2 step to the note
f# before returning to the Am chord back into the verse.

Elton in a can.

Very nice. My minor corrections:

But they're so spaced out, Bennie and the Jets
^ In this line, I would switch first to a normal C chord and throw in the C7 on the way to the G. The order you have it, C7, C, G, is incorrect.

Also, the Bb/C chord ought to be a C9 (x32330).
