Original song composed by Elton John

[Verse 1]

Em                       A
When are you going to come down?
D                     G
When are you going to land?
C                            A
I should have stayed on the farm,
 A             D
I should have listened to my old man.
   Em                        A
You know you can't hold me forever,
   D              G
I didn't sign up with you.
  C                         A
I'm not a present for your friends to open,
This boy's too young to be singing 


   Gm   C
The blu-u-ues.
 F          Bb
Aah aah aah aah 
Gm       A
aah aah aah

D                       F#
So goodbye yellow brick road,
         G               D
Where the dogs of society howl.
  B                         Em
You can't plant me in your penthouse,
A                      D
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         Bm
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
 G                      Gm  C
Beyond the yellow brick road

 F          Bb
Aah aah aah aah 
Gm       A
aah aah aah

[Verse 2]
 Em                        A
What do you think you'll do then?
 D                        G
I bet that'll shoot down your plane.
  C                         A
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
To set you on your feet again

  Em7                        A
Maybe you'll get a replacement,
D                         G
There's plenty like me to be found.
C                         A
Mongrels, who ain't got a penny,
G                     A               Gm C
Sniffing for tid-bits like you on the ground

 F          Bb
Aah aah aah aah 
Gm       A
aah aah aah
