All chords last for 1 bar except for the intro and the part of the chorus that
goes “Oh I’ve…” (Db Eb F C Dm F Bb C)

(Intro)
F C Dm C Bb C F (Hold last F for a whole bar)

(Verse 1)
Gm C
When are you gonna come down
F Bb
When are you going to land
Gm C
I should have stayed on the farm, should have
F F
listened to my old man
Gm C
You know you can’t hold me forever
F Bb
I didn’t sign up with you
Eb C
I’m not a present for your friends to open
F F
This boy’s too young to be singing the
Db Eb Ab Db Db C7
blues… Ah…… Ah….

(Chorus)
F A7
So Goodbye yellow brick road
Bb F
where the dogs of society howl
D7 Gm
You can’t plant me in your penthouse
C F
I’m going back to my plow
Dm A
Back to the howling old owl in the woods
Bb Db
Hunting the horny black toad
Db Eb F C Dm F
… Oh I’ve finally decided my future lies
Bb C
Beyond the yellow brick
Db Eb Ab Db Db C F
road… Ah….. Ah……

(Verse 2)
What do you think you’ll do then?
I bet to shoot down your plane
It’ll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
to set you on your feet again
Maybe you’ll get a replacement
There’s plenty like me to be found
Mongrels who ain’t got a penny
Sniffing for titbits like you on the
ground… Ah…. Ah….

(Repeat Chorus)
