Tell Me Where The Whistle Blows chords

Elton John


Intro: Dm7 Dm7 There's a dusty old gutter he's lying in now He's blind and he's old G A Dm7 And there's a bottle that rolls down the road Me I'm young and I'm so wild And I still feel the need G A Bm Of your apron strings once in a while A For there's taxi cabs hooting E/G# G7 Dm7 But I can't be foot-loose forever A My suitcase it's a cheap one E/G# My darling she's a dear one G7 C My head's feeling light as a feather G7 D Dm7 Take my ears and tell me when the whistle blows G7 D Dm7 Wake me up and tell me when the whistle blows D A Long lost and lonely boy Bm G you're just a black sheep going home D A G7 I want to feel your wheels of steel D A G7 Underneath my itching heels D Take my money G A Bm Dm7 Tell me when the whistle blows Part of me asked the young man for the time With a cool vacant stare of undue concern He said nine It's not so bad but I really do love the land And rather all this than those diamante lovers In Hyde Park holding hands Blowing heat through my fingers Trying to kill off this cold Will the street kids remember Can I still shoot a fast cue Has this country kid still got his soul
