   Phew, first tab I've made in months. Great song from the 70's
   that was used in the film Almost Famous. Many people requested
   this a few months ago so I decided to tab it now, when people
   have already found the chords somewhere else :)
   Lots of chords, but don't be intimidated, it's an easy song to
   play. I got the basics for this tab at:
   So Big Thanx to them, lots of other Elton John songs there,
   check it out.
   C   F   C   F
   C   F   C   F
   If you want tab for the intro you can play it like
   this, I just strum it:
       C           F
   VERSE 1:
   C          F      C     F
    Blue jean baby,   L.A. lady,
   C                    F     F G
     seamstress for the band
   C       F      C       F
    Pretty eyed,   pirate smile,
   C                      F     F G
     you'll marry a music man
   F     Em7   Am7                  D7 (or just a regular D)
    Ballerina,   you must have seen her
   Dm7  E7             Am   G
        dancing in the sand
   C              F      C       F
    And now she's in me,  always with me,
   C                   G   F  Em  Dm7
     Tiny dancer in my hand
   C   F   C   F 
   VERSE 2:
   C      F       C           F
    Jesus freaks   out in the street,
   C                        F     F G
    Handing tickets out for God
   C        F     C         F
    Turning back   she just laughs
   C                           F   F G
     The boulevard is not that bad
   F      Em7  Am7            D7
    Piano man    he makes his stand
   Dm7      E7      Am   G
     in the auditorium
   C        F   C              F
    Looking on   she sings the songs
   C                                  G  F  Em Dm7
    The words she knows, the tune she hums
   C   F   C   F
   Ab              Bb
     But oh how it feels so real,
   Gm7               Cm
     lying here with no one near
   Ab                    Bb
   Only you  and you can hear me
               G/B     G/B*
    when I say softly, slowly
   In the chorus the C is probably supposed to be C/E.
   I just use the regular C, but if you wanna use C/E
   it's played either like this (032010) or (xx2010).
   F        C           Dm       C  <--play this C real quickly
    Hold me closer tiny dancer
   F          C                 G
    Count the headlights on the highway
   F       C                 Dm
    Lay me down in sheets of linen
   F          C          G
    You had a busy day today
   Am  Asus4   Am [I'm having a hard time hearing this correctly.
                   It's something like this and then:]
   C   F   C   F   <--same as intro
   F        C           Dm       C
    Hold me closer tiny dancer
   F          C                 G
    Count the headlights on the highway
   F       C                 Dm
    Lay me down in sheets of linen
   F          C          G    G
    You had a busy day today
   C   F   C   F
   C   F   C  F C
