Candle In The Wind

Elton John

 EA
 Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never knew you at all
 EADA
You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled----------
 EA
They crawled out of the woodwork and they whispered into your brain
 EADA
They sent you on a treadmill and they made you change your name----------


Chorus:
 BB7
 And it seems to me you lived your life
 EA
 Like a candle in the wind
 EB
 Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
 AC#m
 And I would have liked to've known you but I was just a kid
 BAE
 Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did--------


 EA
 Loneliness was tough, the toughest role you ever played
 EADA
Hollywood created a superstar and pain was the price you paid----------
 EA
And even when you died, oh, the press still hounded you
 EADA
All the papers had to say was that Marilyn was found in the nude----------


Chorus:

 EA
 Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never knew you at all
 EADA
You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled----------
 EA
 Goodbye Norma Jean, from a young man in the twenty second row
 EADA
Who sees you as something more than sexual, more than just our Marilyn Monroe----------

Chorus:
 BB7
 And it seems to me you lived your life
 EA
 Like a candle in the wind
 EB
 Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in
 AC#m
 And I would have liked to've known you but I was just a kid       (x2)
 BAE
 Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did--------

After '...while those around you crawled' there is a chord change between A and D and back to A again.
