Elton John
Skyline Pigeon
       
verse 1

          D               A/C#
Turn the loose from your hands
      G  A      A7      D
Let me fly to distant lands
             E/G#             G
Over green fields, trees and mountains
D/A    A       A7      D    
Flowers and forest fountains
G         D/A        A7      D
Home along the lanes of the skyway

verse 2
          D              A/C#
For this dark and lonely room 
           G    A   A7      D
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
                E/G#
And my eyes are mirrors
       G
Of the world outside 
         D/A  
Thinking of the way
A        A7             D
That the wind can turn he tide
           G    
And these shadows turn
      D/A    A7    D

Chorus
              G 
For just this Skyline Pigeon
D/A             A7             
Dreaming of the open
D 
Waiting for the day
        G
He can spread his wings
    D/A   A7   D      F#7/C#
And fly away again
      Bm  C#7            F#m
Fly away  Skyline pigeon fly
             G                 D/A  A7    D
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind
(repeat from fly away)


Verse 3

(Same chords as verses 1 & 2)

Just let me wake up in the morning 

to the smell of new mown hay

to laugh and cry, to live and die

I the brightness of my day


I want to hear the pealing bells

Of distant churches sing

But most of all please free me


and open out this cage towards the sun

(Repeat chorus)
