Skyline Pigeon

Elton John

verse 1

 DA/C#
Turn the loose from your hands
 GAA7D
Let me fly to distant lands
 E/G#G
Over green fields, trees and mountains
 D/AAA7D
 Flowers and forest fountains
 GD/AA7D
 Home along the lanes of the skyway

verse 2
 DA/C#
For this dark and lonely room
 GAA7D
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
 E/G#
And my eyes are mirrors
 G
Of the world outside
 D/A
Thinking of the way
 AA7D
 That the wind can turn he tide
 G
And these shadows turn
 D/AA7D
From purple into grey

Chorus
 G
For just this Skyline Pigeon
 D/AA7
 Dreaming of the open
 D
 Waiting for the day
 G
He can spread his wings
 D/AA7DF#7/C#
And fly away again     
 BmC#7F#m
Fly away  Skyline pigeon fly
 GD/AA7D
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)
