Grey Seal chords

Elton John

Key: 

  			B              D           G 
Why’s it never light on my lawn 
                   C       G            D 
Why does it rain and never say good-day to the new-born 
       B               D             G 
On the big screen they showed us the sun 
           C         G           D 
But not as bright in life as the real one 
           C         G           D 
It's never quite the same as the real one 
B           F#    
And tell me grey seal  
            A             E 
how does it feel to be so wise 
B              F# 
To see through eyes 
          A          E 
That only see what’s real 
B F#   A  E    B 
Tell   me grey seal 
B                   D            G 
I never learned why meteors were formed 
       C         G                    D 
I only farmed in schools that were so worn and torn 
      B                D      G 
If anyone can cry then so can I 
       C              G    D 
I read books and draw life from the eye 
       C       G        D 
All my life is drawings from the eye 

Your mission bells were wrought by ancient men 
The roots were formed by twisted roots 
Your roots were twisted then 
I was re-born before all life could die 
The phoenix bird will leave this world to fly 
If the phoenix bird can fly then so can I
