Im Going To Be A Teenage Idol Chords
Im' going to be a teenage Idol - Elton John

Well there's slim times when my words won't rhyme
        C                  F
And the hills I face are a long hard climb
G                                   C        F C
I just sit cross legged with my old guitar
   Am                G                     F7
It kind of makes me feel like a rock and roll star

Well it makes me laugh Lord it makes me cry
      C                              F
And I think for once let me just get high
G                                   C    F  C
Let me get electric put a silk suit on
Am            G             F7
Turn my old guitar into a tommy gun

And root-toot-shoot myself to fame
Every kid alive gonna know my name
   D7             E7                        F7
An overnight phenomenon like there's never been
F7                     G7           A
A motivated supersonic king of the scene

     Dm           G      Dm            G
I'll be a teenage idol, just give me a break
          Cmaj7            Am      Dm                 G
I'm gonna be a teenage idol no matter how long it takes
    Dm                             G
You can't imagine what it means to me
    Dm                  G             A7
I'm gonna grab myself a place in history

  F               Ab                     E7    Am      G   F
A teenage idol           that's what I'm gonna be

Well life is short and the world is rough
    C                              F
And if you're gonna boogie boy you got to be tough
G                               C   F C
Nobody knows if I'm dead or alive
Am             G                  F7
I just drink myself to sleep each night

And so I pray to the teenage god of rock
     C                          F
If I make it big let me stay on top
G                                          C  F C
You got to cut me loose from this one room dive
Am           G                      F7
Put me on the ladder keep this boy alive

About the artist behind Im Going To Be A Teenage Idol 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]
