G				      C		
Goodbye England's rose,  may you ever grow in our hearts  
C                       G                                        C
You were the grace that placed itself where lives were torn apart
		      G                         C
You called out to our country, and you whispered to those in pain.
                     G                                     C
Now you belong to heaven, and the stars spell out your name.


Chorus:
D				   D7
And it seems to me  you lived your life 
        G                C
Like a candle in the wind         
      G				      D
Never fading with the sunset when the rain set in              
	 C				       Em
And your footsteps will always fall here along England's greenest hills
G                       D	         C
Your candles burned out long before your legend ever will.

Verse no. 2:
G					C
Loveliness we've lost, these empty days without your smile 
                        G 			           C
This torch we'll always carry for our nation's golden child
                   G                           C
And even though we try, the truth brings us to tears 
              G                                                 C
All our words cannot express the joy you brought us through the years.


Chorus:
D				   D7
And it seems to me  you lived your life 
	 G               C
Like a candle in the wind         
      G				      D
Never fading with the sunset when the rain set in              
	 C				       Em
And your footsteps will always fall here along England's greenest hills
G                        D                C               G
Your candles burned out long before your legend ever will.


Verse no. 3:
G			              C		
Goodbye England's rose,  may you ever grow in our hearts  
                        G                                        C
You were the grace that placed itself where lives were torn apart
G				       C
Goodbye England's rose, from a country lost without your soul 
                              G                                    C
Who'll miss the wings of your compassion more than you'll ever know.


Chorus:
D				   D7
And it seems to me  you lived your life 
	 G               C
Like a candle in the wind         
      G				      D
Never fading with the sunset when the rain set in              
	 C				       Em
And your footsteps will always fall here along England's greenest hills
G                       D                C                G
Your candles burned out long before your legend ever will.

	 C				       Em
And your footsteps will always fall here among England's greenest hills

Your candles burned out long before your legend ever will.

About the artist behind Candle In The Wind 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]
