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
uses in his interpretation of his song. 
(A capo should be used to match the key which bests enables you and yours to
sing Candle in the Wind) 


[Verse] 
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.

Whatever about which version of the lyrics. They are both in the key of E and require no capo if the tab is in the right key.
