How To Play

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)

Two slash chords included. Of course you can leave out the note after the slash and just use the regular chord shapes.

Easier to play when transposed down 3 steps. To get back to the original key put on a capo 3rd fret.
 
 
INTRO
F C/E Dm Dm/C Bb Bb/C C F (Hold last F for a whole bar)

F                     Bb
When are you going to land
 Eb                       C
I should have stayed on the farm, should have

Listened to my old man

You know you can't hold me forever
  F                   Bb
I didn't sign up with you

I'm not a present for your friends to open

This boy's too young to be singing

The 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 back toad

Oh I've finally decided my future lies

Beyond the yellow brick road ...

What do you think you'll do then?
  F                            Bb
I bet they'll shoot down the plane
      Eb                   C
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
   F                      F
To set you on your feet again
Gm                   C
Maybe you'll get a replacement
        F                    Bb
There's plenty like me to be found
Eb           C
Mongrels who ain't got a penny
F                         F
Sniffing for tidbits like you
       Db  Eb    Ab  Db  Bbm  C7
On the ground... Ah....  Ah....
