Candle In The Wind  Elton John


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

Chorus:
And it [B]seems to me you lived your [B7]life
Like a [E]candle in the [A]wind
Never [E]knowing who to cling to when the [B]rain set in
And I [A]would have liked to've known you but I was [C#m]just a kid
Your candle burned out [B]long before your [A]legend ever did------[E]--


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


[E]Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never [A]knew you at all
You had the grace to [E]hold yourself while those around you [A]crawled--[D]------[A]--
[E]Goodbye Norma Jean, from a young man in the [A]twenty second row
Who sees you as something more than [E]sexual, more than just our Marilyn Mon[A]roe--[D]------[A]--
Chorus:
And it [B]seems to me you lived your [B7]life
Like a [E]candle in the [A]wind
Never [E]knowing who to cling to when the [B]rain set in
And I [A]would have liked to've known you but I was [C#m]just a kid       (x2)
Your candle burned out [B]long before your [A]legend ever did------[E]--

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