Intro: F C Dm F Bb C F

Verse 1:
Gm           Bb         C
When are you gonna come down
F            C        Bb
When are you going to land
  Gm                        C
I should have stayed on the farm, should have
F                  F
Listened to my old man
    Gm                        C
You know you can't hold me forever
  F           C       Bb
I didn't sign up with you
    Eb                     C
I'm not a present for your friends to open
     F                     F
This boy's too young to be singing the
Db    Eb  Ab   Db   Db   C7
Blu-u-ues Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh

Chorus:
   F                     A7
So gooDbye, yellow brick road
          Bb              F
Where the dogs of society howl
    D7                     Gm
You can't plant me in your penthouse
    C                F
I'm going back to my plow
Dm                      A
Back to the howling old owl in the woods
Bb                     Db
Hunting the horny back toad
Db  Eb     F       C       Dm             F
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
  Bb       C
Beyond the yellow brick
Db   Eb  Ab   Db   Db   C    F
ro-o-oad Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh Ah

Verse 2:
Gm          Bb           C
What do you think you'll do then
F                   C        Bb
I bet that'll shoot down the plane
      Gm                   C
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
   F                             F
To set you on your feet again
Gm                   C
Maybe you'll get a replacement
        F           C        Bb
There's plenty like me to be found
Eb           C
Mongrels who ain't got a penny
F                         F
Sniffing for tiDbits like you on the 
Db    Eb   Ab   Db   Db   C7
Gro-o-ound Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh

Chorus:
   F                     A7
So gooDbye, yellow brick road
          Bb              F
Where the dogs of society howl
    D7                     Gm
You can't plant me in your penthouse
    C                F
I'm going back to my plow
Dm                      A
Back to the howling old owl in the woods
Bb                     Db
Hunting the horny back toad
Db  Eb     F       C       Dm             F
Oh I've finally decided my future lies
  Bb       C
Beyond the yellow brick
Db   Eb  Ab   Db   Db   C    F
ro-o-oad Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh Ah
