Skyline Pigeon Chords

Skyline Pigeon
verse 1

          D               A/C#
Turn the loose from your hands
      G  A      A7      D
Let me fly to distant lands
             E/G#             G
Over green fields, trees and mountains
D/A    A       A7      D    
Flowers and forest fountains
G         D/A        A7      D
Home along the lanes of the skyway
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/elton_john/skyline_pigeon_crd.html ]
verse 2
          D              A/C#
For this dark and lonely room 
           G    A   A7      D
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
And my eyes are mirrors
Of the world outside 
Thinking of the way
A        A7             D
That the wind can turn he tide
And these shadows turn
      D/A    A7    D
From purple into grey

For just this Skyline Pigeon
D/A             A7             
Dreaming of the open
Waiting for the day
He can spread his wings
    D/A   A7   D      F#7/C#
And fly away again
      Bm  C#7            F#m
Fly away  Skyline pigeon fly
             G                 D/A  A7    D
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind
(repeat from fly away)

Verse 3

(Same chords as verses 1 & 2)

Just let me wake up in the morning 

to the smell of new mown hay

to laugh and cry, to live and die

I the brightness of my day

I want to hear the pealing bells

Of distant churches sing

But most of all please free me

from this aching metal ring

and open out this cage towards the sun

(Repeat chorus)
