D                 Gmaj7  A              Gbm 
It's a little bit funny, this feeling inside
Bm             Bm            Bm     G 
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
D                 A           Gb       Bm 
I don't have much money, but, boy if I did
D             Em          G             A    Asus4   A 
I'd buy a big house where we both could live


D          Gmaj7     A              Gbm 
If I was a sculptor, but then again no
Bm                 Bm           Bm         G 
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
D               A                 Gb         Bm 
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
D             Em        G             D    Dsus4     D  
My gift is my song, and this one for you


A                Bm        Em           G 
And you can tell everybody this is your song
A         Bm               Em            G 
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
Bm                     Bm       
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
Bm                 G6 
That I put down in words,
    D         G6            G             A   Asus4     A 
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

Interlude: D     G     A     G    

D            Gmaj7  A                  Gbm 
I sat on the roof,  and kicked off the moss
Bm                Bm             Bm           G 
Well a few of the Verses they've got me quite crossed
D                  A           Gb                 Bm 
But the sun's been quite kind, while I wrote this song
D                    Em            G           A   Asus4     A
It's for people like you that they keep turned on


D            Gmaj7       A           Gbm 
So excuse me forgetting, but these I do
Bm              Bm                 Bm               G 
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're blue
D           A                Gb      Bm 
Anyway, the thing is, what I reallly mean
D             Em            G         D     Dsus4     D  
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen


A                Bm        Em           G 
And you can tell everybody this is your song
A         Bm               Em            G 
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
Bm                     Bm     
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
Bm                    G6 
That I put down in words,
    D         G6            G             A   Asus4     A 
How wonderful life is while you're in the world


Bm                     Bm     
I hope you don't mind, I hope you don't mind
Bm                    G6 
That I put down in words,
    D         G6       G             
How wonderful life is while you're in the world

  1. kizzy_sanka

    On +5 Em then G, A

  2. kizzy_sanka

    On +5 Em then G, Am

  3. I feel like 0 is the original key and that works best for me

  4. What’s the easiest for really really beginners ????

  5. +5 is easiest

  6. I use 5+ and replace Bm w/ B and it sounds great and is easier

  7. posterman

    The Esus4 chord shown is unnecessarily weird, just slide the finger on the G string up one fret from an E chord and that’s the Esus4 chord.

  8. +1 is the correct key that Elton plays in. And it should end in Eb.

  9. Sukulele

    -2 really easy for newbies

  10. SomethingUke

    I like playing Em, G, C, C, instead of Em, Em, Em, C.

  11. On +5, end with a D, then G. It sounds more rounded.

  12. What is +5?”

  13. I agree. You should end with a d cord! It sounds so pretty

  14. +5 is good!

  15. Maryb203

    I like +5

  16. Username*

    Should end with a D chord on the last world

  17. This song works best for me at -4
