Cande In The Wind

Elton John

Capo II

D
Goodbye Norma Jean
               G
Though I never knew you at all
                     D
You had the grace to hold yourself
                       G
While those around you crawled
                        D
They crawled out of the woodwork
         G
And they whispered into your brain
                    D
They set you on the treadmill
                              G
And they made you change your name

       A               A7
And it seems to me you lived your life
       D             G
Like a candle in the wind
      D          
Never knowing who to cling to
         A
When the rain set in
      G                     
And I would have liked to have known you
          Bm
But I was just a kid
                       A
Your candle burned out long before
     G           D
Your legend ever did

D
Loneliness was tough
             G
The toughest role you ever played
                    D
Hollywood created a superstar
                           G
And pain was the price you paid
              D
Even when you died
       G
Oh the press still hounded you
           
All the papers had to say
         D                        G
Was that Marilyn was found in the nude
       A               A7
And it seems to me you lived your life
       D             G
Like a candle in the wind
      D          
Never knowing who to cling to
         A
When the rain set in
      G                     
And I would have liked to have known you
          Bm
But I was just a kid
                       A
Your candle burned out long before
     G           D
Your legend ever did

D
Goodbye Norma Jean
               G
Though I never knew you at all
            D
You had the grace to hold yourself
                       G
While those around you crawled
D
Goodbye Norma Jean
                   G
From the young man in the 22nd row
                                    D
Who sees you as something more than sexual
                              G
More than just our Marilyn Monroe

       A               A7
And it seems to me you lived your life
       D             G
Like a candle in the wind
      D          
Never knowing who to cling to
         A
When the rain set in
      G                     
And I would have liked to have known you
          Bm
But I was just a kid
                       A
Your candle burned out long before
     G           D
Your legend ever did

                       A
Your candle burned out long before
     G           D
Your legend ever did
