Candle In The Wind - Original Version chords

Elton John

Key: 

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