The Captain and the Kid  Elton John

INTRO
F | Bb | F | Dm
F | Bb | F | Dm
VERSE
[F] I've been out on this [Bb/F]road [F]some
Can't help feeling I've been [Am7]showing my friends [Dm]around
I've seen it [Bb]growing from next to [F/A]nothing
Into a [Gm7]giant [F/A]eating up your [C7]town
VERSE
[F]Called up the tea leaves and the [Bb/F]ta - [F]rots
Asked the gypsy what she [Am7]sees in the palm of our [Dm]hands
She saw a [Bb]mountain and [F/A]wild deer running
A [Gm7]crazy kid becoming a [F/A]better [C7]man
BRIDGE
But we [Gm7]stuck around for the fireworks
Waiting [Bb]to [C7]explode
Shaped our [A7]futures, you a [Dm]tumbleweed
And [Bb]me on a yellow brick [C]road
Pleasing the [Gm7]people some of the time
For better [Bb]or for [C7]worse
An urban [A7]soul in a fine silk [Dm]suit
And a heart out [Bb]west in a [G/B]Wrangler [C7]shirt
CHORUS
And you can't go [F]back and if you try it [Dm]fails
Looking up [Bb]ahead I see a rusty [F/C]nail
A sign hanging from [F]it saying "Truth for [Dm]sale"
And that's what we [Bb]did
No [G/B]lies at all just [F/C]one more tale
About the [C]Captain [A7/C#]and the [Dm]Kid
(guitar riff)

VERSE
[F]We've been missing at [Bb/F]times in [F]action
Can't imagine what he [C]said he might do for [Dm]you
The devil [Bb]got to come to the [F/A]party sometimes
But he [Gm7]never got to [F/A]wear our sho[C7]es
Oh we've [F]conjured up [Bb/F]what we cre[F]ated
Way back then when I was [C]standing up in six-inch [Dm]heels
Now you're [Bb]riding off [F/A]into the sunset
And [Gm7]I'm still spinning [F/A]like a Catherine [C7]wheel
BRIDGE
But we [Gm7]stuck around for the battle
Waiting [Bb]for a [C7]plan
To turn you [A7]into the Brown Dirt Co[Dm]wboy
And [Bb]me into a rocket [C7]man
It pleases the [Gm7]people some of the time
Digging [Bb]into our [C7]roots
But I got a [A7]brand new pair of [Dm]shoes
And you're on a [Bb]horse in [G/B]old cowboy [C7]boots
CHORUS
And you can't go [F]back and if you try it [Dm]fails
Looking up [Bb]ahead I see a rusty [F/C]nail
A sign hanging from [F]it saying "Truth for [Dm]sale"
And that's what we [Bb]did
No [G/B]lies at all just [F/C]one more tale
About the [C]Captain [A7/C#]and the [Dm]Kid
[Dm]

And you can't go [F]back and if you try it [Dm]fails
