Skyline Pigeon chords

Elton John


D A/C# Turn me loose from your hands G A7 D E7 Let me fly to distant lands / Over green fields G D A7 D trees and mountains/ Flowers and forest, fountains G A7 / Home along the line of the D A/C# skyway / For this dark and lonely room G A7 D projects a shadow castin' gloom E7 G And my eyes are mirrors of the world outside D Thinking of the way A7 D that the wind can turn the side G A7 D And these shadows turn from purple into grey G A7 For just a skyline pigeon dreaming D of the open, wainting for the day G A7 D He can spread his wings and fly away again F#7 Bm C#7 Fly away , skyline pigeon F#m G fly towards the dreams you've left so D A7 D very far behind D Just let me wake up in the morning / A/C# To the smell of new-mown hay G A7 D to laugh and cry to live and die In the brightness of my day E I want to hear the pealing bells of distant G D churches sing / But most of all please A7 D free me from this aching metal ring / G A7 D And open out this cage towards the sun .
