High Flying Bird  Elton John

High-Flying Bird
by Elton John & Bernie Taupin
Taken from "Don't Shoot Me, I'm Only the Piano Player"
 
 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Note: This song was originally played in Ab. I have shifted it down one key to make it
easier to play and sing. If you want it back in its original key, you can always use a
capo or transpose back up.

(G Fma7 C Fma7 C) x 2
You wore a [G]little cross of gold around your [C]neck,
I [G]saw it as you flew between my [D]reasons,
Like a [Am]raven in the night time when you [C]left.
I wear a [G]chain upon my wrist that bears no [C]name,
[G]You touched it and you [D]wore it,
And you [Am]kept it in your pillow all the [C]same.
My high-flying [G]bird has flown from out my [C]arms,
I thought myself her [Am]keeper,
She thought I meant her [D]harm,
She thought I was the [G]archer,
A weather man of [C]words,
But I could never [Fma7]shoot down,[C]
My high-flying [G]bird.[Fma7] [C] [Fma7] [C]
The [G]white walls of your dressing room are [C]stained in scarlet red.
You [G]bled upon the cold stone like a [D]young man,
[Am]In the foreign field of [C]death.
[G]Wouldn't it be wonderful is [C]all I heard you say,
You never [G]closed your eyes at night and learned to love [D]daylight,
[Am]Instead you moved [C]away.
My high-flying [G]bird has flown from out my [C]arms,
I thought myself her [Am]keeper,
She thought I meant her [D]harm,
She thought I was the [G]archer,
A weather man of [C]words,
But I could never [Fma7]shoot down,[C]
My high-flying [G]bird has flown from out my [C]arms,
I thought myself her [Am]keeper,
She thought I meant her [D]harm,
She thought I was the [G]archer,
A weather man of [C]words,
But I could never [Fma7]shoot down,[C]
My high-flying [G]bird.[Fma7] [C] [Fma7] [C]
My [G]high-flying, high-flying [C]bird.
My [G]high-flying, high-flying [C]bird.
My [G]high-flying, high-flying [C]bird.[G]

This is probably my favorite song on the "Don't Shoot Me" album.
I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.
