Elton John and Bernie Taupin



Daniel is traveling tonight on a plane
I can see the red tail lights heading for Spain
Oh and I can see Daniel waving goodbye
God it looks like Daniel, must be the clouds in my eyes

/ C - Dm - / G - E7 Am / F G Am - / F - G7 F C - - - /

They say Spain is pretty though I've never been
Well Daniel says it's the best place that he's ever seen
Oh and he should know, he's been there enough
Lord I miss Daniel, oh I miss him so much

Oh, Daniel my brother you are older than me
Do you still feel the pain of the scars that won't heal


Crocodile Rock

I remember when rock was young
Me and Susie had so much fun
Holding hands and skimmin' stones
Had an old gold Chevy and a place of my own

/ G - / Bm - / C - / D - /

But the biggest kick I ever got
Was doing a thing called the Crocodile Rock
While the other kids were rockin' 'round the clock
We were hoppin' and boppin' to the Crocodile Rock

Well, Crocodile Rockin' is something shockin'
When you feet just can't keep still
I never knew me a better time
And I guess I never will
Oh lawdy mama, those Friday nights
When Susie wore her dresses tight


Candle in the Wind

[Capo 2]

Goodbye Norma Jean
Though I never knew you at all
You had the grace to hold yourself
While those around you crawled
They crawled out of the woodwork
And they whispered into your brain
They set you on the treadmill
And they made you change your name

/ D - / G - / :

And it seems to me you lived your life
Like a candle in the wind
Never knowing who to cling to
When the rain set in
And I would have liked to have known you
But I was just a kid
Your candle burned out long before
Your legend ever did
