Em                      A
When are you gonna come down
D                     G
When are you going to land
  C                         A
I should have stayed on the farm, I should have
D
Listened to my old man
    Em                      A
You know you can't hold me forever
  D                   G
I didn't sign up with you
    C                      A
I'm not a present for your friends to open
     D
This boy's too young to be singing the
Gm     C   F           A#      Gm      A
Blues...   Ah..ah..ah..ah...   Ah..ah..ah
 
 
[Chorus]
 
   D                    F#
So Goodbye yellow brick road
          G               D
Where the dogs of society howl
    B                      Em
You can't plant me in your penthouse
    A                D      A
I'm going back to my plough
Bm                      F#
Back to the howling old owl in the woods
G                      A#
Hunting the horny back toad
C       D       A           Bm
Oh I've finally decided, my future lies
  G         A
Beyond the yellow brick
Gm    C   F           A#      Gm      A   D
Road...   Ah..ah..ah..ah...   Ah..ah..ah  ah
 
 
[Verse 2]
 
Em                       A
What do you think you'll do then
  D                           G
I bet they'll shoot down your plane
      C                    A
It'll take you a couple of vodka and tonics
   D
To set you on your feet again
Em                   A
Maybe you'll get a replacement
        D                    G
There's plenty like me to be found
C            A
Mongrels who ain't got a penny
D
Sniffing for tit-bits like you on the
Gm      C   F           A#      Gm      A
Ground...   Ah..ah..ah..ah...   Ah..ah..ah
 
 
[Chorus]
 
   D                    F#
So Goodbye yellow brick road
          G               D
Where the dogs of society howl
    B                      Em
You can't plant me in your penthouse
    A                D      A
I'm going back to my plough
Bm                      F#

  G         A
Beyond the yellow brick
Gm    C   F           A#      Gm      A   D 
Road...   Ah..ah..ah..ah...   Ah..ah..ah  ah
