VERSE
   Bb/D   Eb                     Bb
He wasn't famous but I sure did love him
             Ab                  Eb
I've got his picture in a little frame
            Eb              Bb              Ab         Eb
He lost his life to a big disease before it even had a name
             Fm                  Bb
But there is so many more and I've lost count
    Gm7                    Cm
The hows and whys aren't important now
         F/A                  Bb
All that matters is they came around
                      Eb
And brightened up our lives

VERSE
        Eb                  Bb
She was twenty one with her life ahead
          Ab               Eb
You don't need to know her name
                 Eb                     Bb         Ab          Eb
She breathed her last on the cold stone floor of a Hollywood arcade
      Fm7                          Bb
But fate's right hand isn't always just
       Gm7                     Cm
Puts a lot of pressure on your faith and trust
        F/A                           Bb
She was just a little girl ain't that enough
                    Eb
To rage against the day

CHORUS
    Ab                Eb
And how did we get so lucky?
Bb                   Cm
Targets on the rifle range
Ab                     Eb
Who makes the call and who gets to choose?
Bb                    Cm
Who gets to win and who gets to lose?
            Ab                  Eb               
It's like a rolling dice in the belly of the blues
    G7/B              Cm
And blues never fade away
Cm/Bb       Ab                  Eb
Hey hey the colors run when the rain falls
    G7/B              Cm
But blues never fade away

VERSE
   Bb/D     Eb                     Bb
He shone so bright with a lust for life
         Ab               Eb
Like the Sun King that he was
             Eb            Bb             Ab           Eb
His passions hung upon his walls and were printed onto cloth
        Fm7                 Bb
And for reasons I never understood
          Gm7                      Cm
About the choices made between the bad and good
              F/A         
I've tried to figure out but
    Bb              Eb
The pain never goes away

CHORUS
    Ab                Eb
And how did we get so lucky?
Bb                   Cm
Targets on the rifle range
Ab                     Eb
Who makes the call and who gets to choose?
Bb                    Cm
Who gets to win and who gets to lose?
            Ab                  Eb               
It's like a rolling dice in the belly of the blues
    G7/B              Cm
And blues never fade away
Cm/Bb       Ab                  Eb
Hey hey the colors run when the rain falls
    G7/B              Cm
But blues never fade away

BRIDGE
            G7/D               Cm/Eb
And there's marble markers and little white crosses
 G7/F            Cm/G
Along the beaten path
           Ab               Eb/Bb
And I've spread their ashes on the wind
      Bb                 Cm
And I miss John Lennon's laugh

CHORUS
    Ab                Eb
And how did we get so lucky?
Bb                   Cm
Targets on the rifle range
Ab                     Eb
Who makes the call and who gets to choose?
Bb                    Cm
Who gets to win and who gets to lose?
            Ab                  Eb               
It's like a rolling dice in the belly of the blues
    G7/B              Cm
And blues never fade away
Cm/Bb       Ab                  Eb
Hey hey the colors run when the rain falls
    G7/B              Cm
But blues never fade away

About the artist behind Blues Never Fade Away 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]
