Skyline Pigeon

Elton John

verse 1

Turn the loose from your hands
Let me fly to distant lands
Over green fields, trees and mountains
 Flowers and forest fountains
 Home along the lanes of the skyway

verse 2
For this dark and lonely room
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
And my eyes are mirrors
Of the world outside
Thinking of the way
 That the wind can turn he tide
And these shadows turn
From purple into grey

For just this Skyline Pigeon
 Dreaming of the open
 Waiting for the day
He can spread his wings
And fly away again     
Fly away  Skyline pigeon fly
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)
