[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/elton_john/goodbye_yellow_brick_road_crd.html ]
[VERSE 1]
Gm                      C
When are you gonna come down
F                     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                   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    
blues... Ah...... Ah....

[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 black 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
road... Ah..... Ah......

[VERSE 2]
What do you think you'll do then?
I bet to shoot down your plane
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
to set you on your feet again
Maybe you'll get a replacement
There's plenty like me to be found
Mongrels who ain't got a penny
Sniffing for titbits like you on the 
ground... Ah.... Ah....

[REPEAT CHORUS]
