                Candle in the wind - Elton John


[Verse]

E                                A 
Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never knew you at all
                         E                                       A
You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled
                         E                         A                    
They crawled out of the woodwork and they whispered into your brain
                        E                                       A
They sent you on a treadmill and they made you change your name


[Chorus]

B                                   B7
And it seems to me you lived your life
        E                A
Like a candle in the wind
        E                               B
Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
            A                                      C#m
And I would have liked to've known you but I was just a kid
                         B               A              E
Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did


[Verse]

E                                A 
Loneliness was tough, the toughest role you ever played
E                                A 
Hollywood created a superstar and pain was the price you paid
E                                A 
And even when you died, oh, the press still hounded you
E                                A 
All the papers had to say was that Marilyn was found in the nude


[Chorus] 

B                                   B7
And it seems to me you lived your life
        E                A
Like a candle in the wind
        E                               B
Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
            A                                      C#m
And I would have liked to've known you but I was just a kid
                         B               A              E
Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did


[Verse]

E                                A 
Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never knew you at all
E                                A 
You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled
E                                A 
Goodbye Norma Jean, from a young man in the twenty second row
E                                A 
Who sees you as something more than sexual, more than just our Marilyn Monroe


[Chorus]

B                                   B7
And it seems to me you lived your life
        E                A
Like a candle in the wind
        E                               B
Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
            A                                      C#m
And I would have liked to've known you but I was just a kid
                         B               A              E
Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did

If you'd like to mimic the piano on the very last word of the chorus - it goes like this:

C#m B A A-G#m-F#m-E
...your candle burned out long before your legend ever did.
