G
 I used to be a rolling stone, you know 
 If the cause was right 
         A7            Gm6/Bb   Am7    G  D7sus4
 I'd leave to find the answer on the road 
   G
 I used to be a heart beating for someone 
 But the times have changed 
A7                   Gm6/Bb  Am7       G
 The less I say the more my work gets done

 From the day that I was born I've waved the flag 
 F                            E7               Am7
 Philadelphia freedom took me knee-high to a man

 Yeah, gave me peace of mind my daddy never had

 If you choose to you can live your life alone 
 Some people choose the city 
(Some people choose the city)
      A7                Gm6/Bb    Am7     G
 Some others choose the good old family home

About the artist behind Philadelphia Freedom Chords:

Sir Elton Hercules John CBE[1] [2] (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on 25 March 1947) is an English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist.

In his four-decade career, John has been one of the dominant forces in rock and popular music, especially during the 1970s. He has sold more than 250 million albums[citation needed] and over one hundred million singles,[3] making him one of the most successful artists of all time. He has more than 50 Top 40 hits including seven consecutive #1 U.S. albums, 59 Top 40 singles, 16 Top 10, 4 #2 hits, and nine #1 hits. He has won five Grammy awards and one Academy Award. His success has had a profound impact on popular music and has contributed to the continued popularity of the piano in rock and roll. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him #49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.[4]

Some of the characteristics of John's musical talent include an ability to quickly craft melodies for the lyrics of songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, his former rich tenor (now baritone) voice, his classical and gospel-influenced piano, the aggressive orchestral arrangements of Paul Buckmaster among others and the flamboyant fashions, outlandishly excessive eye glasses, and on-stage showmanship, especially evident during the 1970s.

John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He has been heavily involved in the fight against AIDS since the late 1980s and was knighted in 1998. He entered into a civil partnership with David Furnish on 21 December 2005 and continues to be a champion for the LGBT social movements. On April 9, 2008 Elton John held a benefit concert for the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign, and raised $2.5 million.[5]
