Blues Never Fade Away  Elton John

He wasn't[Eb] famous but I sure did l[Bb]ove him
I've got his [Ab]picture in a little f[Eb]rame
He lost his [Eb]life to a big di[Bb]sease before it e[Ab]ven had a name [Eb]
But there's [Fm]so many more and [Bb]I've lost count
The h[Gm]ows and whys aren't[Cm] important now
All that [Ab]matters is they came ar[Bb]ound
And b[Ab]rightened up our lives[Eb]
She was twenty one with her life ahead
You don't need to know her name
She breathed her last on the cold stone floor of a Hollywood arcade
But fate's right hand isn't always just
Puts a lot of pressure on your faith and trust
She was just a little girl, ain't that enough
To rage against the day
chorus:
And [Ab]how did we get so l[Eb]ucky
[Bb]Targets on the rifle ran[Cm]ge[Cm/B]
Who[Ab] makes the call and [Eb]who gets to choose
[Bb]Who gets to win and wh[Cm]o gets to lose
It's like a[Ab] rolling dice in the[Eb] belly of the blues
And [G]blues never fade a[Cm]way
[Cm/B]Hey hey hey, [Ab]colors run when the [Eb]rain falls
But [G]blues never fade awa[Cm]y
He shone so bright with a lust for life
Like the Sun King that he was
His passions hung upon his walls and were printed onto cloth
And for reasons I never understood
About the choices made between the bad and good
I've tried to figure out why
The pain never goes away
(repeat chorus)
And there's [G]marble markers and [Cm]little white crosses
A[G]long the beaten [Cm]path
And I've s[Ab]pread their ashes [Eb]on the wind
And I m[Bb]iss John Lennon's l[Cm]augh
(repeat chorus)
