Country Comfort Chords
Country Comfort by Elton John and Bernie Taupin.
An old favourite of mine from early 70s album Tumbleweed Connection.

Verse 1:
	 A                          D
Soon the pines will be falling everywhere 
         Bm                   G            E
Village children fight each other for a share 
	 A                          D
And the 6:09 goes roaring past the creek 
       Bm                  D              A
Deacon Lee prepares his sermon for next week 

Verse 2:
     A                               D
I saw grandma yesterday down at the store 
           Bm                G            E
Well she's really going fine for eighty four 
         A                                 D
Well she asked me if sometime I'd fix her barn 
         Bm               D                A
Poor old girl she needs a hand to run the farm 

           D               E             A
And it's good old country comfort in my bones 
            D              E              A
Just the sweetest sound my ears have ever known 
         D             E             A   G   F#m
Just an old-fashioned feeling fully-growwwwwn
        Bm            D                  A
Country comfort's in a truck that's going home 

Verse 3:
            A                      D
Down at the well they've got a new machine 
     Bm                       G           E
The foreman says it cuts man-power by fifteen 
                    A                              D
Yeah but that ain't natural well so old Clay would say 
               Bm              D               A
You see he's a horse-drawn man until his dying day 


Verse 4
Now the old fat goose is flying across the sticks
The hedgehog?s done in clay between the bricks
And the rocking chair?s are creaking on the porch
Across the valley moves the herdsman with his torch

Final chorus Repeat last line three times

About the artist behind Country Comfort 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]
