Candle in the wind (Elton John)

B B7 E B7 E B E A Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never - knew you at all - B7 E A E A You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled. E A They crawled out of the woodwork. And they whispered - into your brain. E Esus E A They set you on the treadmill, and they made you change your name. B E A And it seems to me you lived your life like a candle in the wind. E Esus E# B Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in. A C#m And I would have liked to have known you but I was just a kid. B A A A G#m F#m E Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did. E A Loneliness was tough, the toughest role - you ever played. B7 E A E A Hollywood created a superstar - and pain was the price you paid. E A Even when you died, oh the press still hounded you. E Esus E A All the papers had to say was that Marilyn - was found in the nude. B E A And it seems to me you lived your life like a candle in the wind. E Esus E# B Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in. A C#m And I would have liked to have known you but I was just a kid. B A A A G#m F#m E Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did. E A Goodbye Norma Jean, though I never - knew you at all - B7 E A E A You had the grace to hold yourself while those around you crawled. E A Goodbye Norma Jean, from the young man in the 22nd row. B7 E Who sees you as something as more than sexual - A E A G#m7 F#m7 more than just our Marilyn Monroe. B E A And it seems to me you lived your life like a candle in the wind. E Esus E# B Never knowing who to cling to when the rain set in. A C#m And I would have liked to have known you but I was just a kid. B A A A G#m F#m E Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did. B A A A G#m F#m E Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did.
