Skyline Pigeon Chords
Skyline Pigeon
       
verse 1

          D               A/C#
Turn the loose from your hands
      G  A      A7      D
Let me fly to distant lands
             E/G#             G
Over green fields, trees and mountains
D/A    A       A7      D    
Flowers and forest fountains
G         D/A        A7      D
Home along the lanes of the skyway

verse 2
          D              A/C#
For this dark and lonely room 
           G    A   A7      D
Projects a shadow cast in gloom
                E/G#
And my eyes are mirrors
       G
Of the world outside 
         D/A  
Thinking of the way
A        A7             D
That the wind can turn he tide
           G    
And these shadows turn
      D/A    A7    D
From purple into grey

Chorus
              G 
For just this Skyline Pigeon
D/A             A7             
Dreaming of the open
D 
Waiting for the day
        G
He can spread his wings
    D/A   A7   D      F#7/C#
And fly away again
      Bm  C#7            F#m
Fly away  Skyline pigeon fly
             G                 D/A  A7    D
Towards the dreams you left so very far behind
(repeat from fly away)


Verse 3

(Same chords as verses 1 & 2)

Just let me wake up in the morning 

to the smell of new mown hay

to laugh and cry, to live and die

I the brightness of my day


I want to hear the pealing bells

Of distant churches sing

But most of all please free me

from this aching metal ring

and open out this cage towards the sun

(Repeat chorus)

About the artist behind Skyline Pigeon 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]
