Subject: Chords(guitar and piano): Candle in the wind 1997

Candle in the wind 1997 - Elton John and B. Taupin
Tribute to Princess Diana
Please note: This version does not necessarily reflect the key Elton John

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.

Chorded by: Joseph Elias in memory of Diana, The People's Princess
