Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Skyline Pigeon  Elton John

verse 1

Turn the l[D]oose from your h[A/C#]ands
Let me[G] fl[A]y to di[A7]stant la[D]nds
Over green fi[E/G#]elds, trees and m[G]ountains
[D/A]Flowers[A] and for[A7]est foun[D]tains
[G]Home along[D/A] the lanes [A7]of the s[D]kyway

verse 2
For this d[D]ark and lonely [A/C#]room
Projects a [G]shado[A]w ca[A7]st in gl[D]oom
And my eyes are [E/G#]mirrors
Of the [G]world outside
Thinking [D/A]of the way
[A]That the [A7]wind can turn h[D]e tide
And these s[G]hadows turn
From p[D/A]urple i[A7]nto gr[D]ey

For just this [G]Skyline Pigeon
[D/A]Dreaming of the [A7]open
[D]Waiting for the day
He can s[G]pread his wings
And [D/A]fly aw[A7]ay ag[D]ain    [F#7/C#]
Fly aw[Bm]ay  [C#7]Skyline pigeon [F#m]fly
Towards the d[G]reams you left so [D/A]very [A7]far be[D]hind
(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)
