Candle In The Wind chords
Elton John

Capo II

D
Goodbye Norma Jean 
               G
Though I never knew you at all 
                     D
You had the grace to hold yourself 
                       G
While those around you crawled 
                        D
They crawled out of the woodwork 
         G
And they whispered into your brain 
                    D
They set you on the treadmill 
                              G
And they made you change your name 

       A               A7
And it seems to me you lived your life 
       D             G
Like a candle in the wind 
      D           
Never knowing who to cling to 
         A
When the rain set in 
      G                      
And I would have liked to have known you 
          Bm
But I was just a kid 
                       A
Your candle burned out long before 
     G           D
Your legend ever did 

D
Loneliness was tough 
             G
The toughest role you ever played 
                    D
Hollywood created a superstar 
                           G
And pain was the price you paid 
              D
Even when you died 
       G
Oh the press still hounded you 
            
All the papers had to say 
         D                        G
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude 

       A               A7
And it seems to me you lived your life 
       D             G
Like a candle in the wind 
      D           
Never knowing who to cling to 
         A
When the rain set in 
      G                      
And I would have liked to have known you 
          Bm
But I was just a kid 
                       A
Your candle burned out long before 
     G           D
Your legend ever did 

D
Goodbye Norma Jean
               G
Though I never knew you at all
            D
You had the grace to hold yourself
                       G
While those around you crawled
D
Goodbye Norma Jean
                   G
From the young man in the 22nd row
                                    D
Who sees you as something more than sexual
                              G
More than just our Marilyn Monroe

       A               A7
And it seems to me you lived your life 
       D             G
Like a candle in the wind 
      D           
Never knowing who to cling to 
         A
When the rain set in 
      G                      
And I would have liked to have known you 
          Bm
But I was just a kid 
                       A
Your candle burned out long before 
     G           D
Your legend ever did 

                       A
Your candle burned out long before 
     G           D
Your legend ever did
