Your Song  Elton John

[D]-----[G]-----[A]-----[G]-----[D]---

[D]It's a little bit [Gmaj7]funny, this[A] feeling in[F#m]side
[Bm]I'm not one of [Bm/A]those who can [Bm/Ab]easily [G]hide
[D]I don't have much [A]money, but [F#]if I [Bm]did
[D]I'd buy a big [Em7]house where [G]we both could [A]live

[D]If I was a [Gmaj7]sculptor, but[A] then a[F#m]gain no
[Bm]Or a man who [Bm/A]makes potions in a [Bm/Ab]travelling [G]show
[D]I know it's not [A]much but it's the [F#]best I can [Bm]do
[D]My gift is my [Em7]song, and [G]this one for [D]you
[A]And you can tell [Bm]everybody [Em7]this is your [G]song
[A]It may be [Bm]quite simple but[Em7] now that it's [G]done
I [Bm]hope you don't mind, I [Bm/A]hope you don't mind
[Bm/Ab]That I put down in [G]words
How [D]wonderful [Em7]life is while [G]you're in the [A]world
[D]-----[G]-----[A]-----[G]-----[D]---
[D]I sat on the [Gmaj7]roof and [A]kicked off the [F#m]moss
Well a [Bm]few of the [Bm/A]verses well they've[Bm/Ab] got me quite [G]cross
[D]But the sun's been quite [A]kind, while I [F#]wrote this [Bm]song
[D]It's for people like [Em7]you that [G]keep turned [A]on
[D]So excuse me [Gmaj7]forgetting[A] but these things I [F#m]do
You [Bm]see I've for[Bm/A]gotten if they're [Bm/Ab]green or they're [G]blue
[D]Anyway, the [A]thing is, what I reallly [F#]mean [Bm]
[D]Yours are the [Em7]sweetest eyes [G]I've ever [D]seen
Chorus

I [Bm]hope you don't mind, I [Bm/A]hope you don't mind
[Bm/Ab]That I put down in [G]words
How [D]wonderful [Em7]life is while [G]you're in the [D]world

[D]-----[G]-----[A]-----[G]-----[D]---

This is pretty accurate from a quick glance, although I play the whole thing a 1/2 step up (starting bass chord on Eb)... cool

Great job, this sounds excellent.
Couple of lines not quite right:
I don't have much money...
The sun's been quite kind...
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do...
Thanks!

Well done. I like to add an Asus just after the last A in the chorus(just before going into the next verse) It makes it sound like the piano piece in the original :)
