[Verse]
Em           Em/G       A      A/C#
When are you gonna come down
D            D/F#     G
When are you going to land
  C           C/G           A
I should have stayed on the farm, I should have
D
Listened to my old man


[Verse]
    Em7            Em/G       A       A/C#
You know you can't hold me forever
  D           D/F#    G
I didn't sign up with you
    C     C/G              A
I'm not a present for your friends to open
     D
This boy's too young to be singing the ...

   D                    F#7
So Goodbye yellow brick road
          G               D
Where the dogs of society howl
    B7                     Em7
You can't plant me in your penthouse
    A                D      A/C#
I'm going back to my plough
Bm                      F#
Back to the howling old owl in the woods
G                      Bb
Hunting the horny back toad
   C    D         A/C#      Bm     D/A
Oh I've finally decided, my future lies
  G        A            Gm   Gm/D C    C/E
Beyond the yellow brick ro – o- - oad
F           F/A         Bb   Dm/A
Aah – aah – aah – aah - aah

Aah – aah – aah - aah


[Verse]
Em7         Em/G         A       A Asus4 A
What do you think you'll do then
  D                 D/F#      G
I bet they'll shoot down your plane
      C          C/G       A         A/E
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
   D
To set you on your feet again


[Verse]
Em7          Em/G    A         A/C#
Maybe you'll get a replacement
        D           D/F#     G
There's plenty like me to be found
C      C/G   A           A/E
Mongrels who ain't got a penny
D
Sniffing for tit-bits like you on the ...
