VERSE
F                      Bb/F F
 I've been out on this road some
                             Am7                Dm
Can't help feeling I've been showing my friends around
             Bb                   F/A
I've seen it growing from next to nothing
       Gm7   F/A            C7
Into a giant eating up your town

VERSE
F                                Bb/F F
Called up the tea leaves and the ta - rots
                         Am7                     Dm
Asked the gypsy what she sees in the palm of our hands
          Bb           F/A
She saw a mountain and wild deer running
  Gm7                  F/A    C7
A crazy kid becoming a better man

BRIDGE
       Gm7
But we stuck around for the fireworks
        Bb C7
Waiting to explode
           A7             Dm
Shaped our futures, you a tumbleweed
    Bb                   C
And me on a yellow brick road
             Gm7
Pleasing the people some of the time
           Bb     C7
For better or for worse
         A7                  Dm
An urban soul in a fine silk suit
                Bb        G/B      C7
And a heart out west in a Wrangler shirt

CHORUS
                 F                      Dm
And you can't go back and if you try it fails
           Bb                  F/C 
Looking up ahead I see a rusty nail
                    F                    Dm
A sign hanging from it saying "Truth for sale"
                   Bb
And that's what we did
   G/B              F/C
No lies at all just one more tale
          C       A7/C#   Dm
About the Captain and the Kid

VERSE
F                     Bb/F     F
We've been missing at times in action
                      C                    Dm
Can't imagine what he said he might do for you
          Bb                 F/A
The devil got to come to the party sometimes
       Gm7          F/A         C7
But he never got to wear our shoes
         F           Bb/F       F
Oh we've conjured up what we created
                         C                       Dm
Way back then when I was standing up in six-inch heels
           Bb         F/A       
Now you're riding off into the sunset
    Gm7                F/A              C7
And I'm still spinning like a Catherine wheel

BRIDGE
       Gm7                  
But we stuck around for the battle
        Bb    C7
Waiting for a plan
            A7                    Dm
To turn you into the Brown Dirt Cowboy
    Bb               C7
And me into a rocket man
               Gm7                
It pleases the people some of the time
        Bb       C7
Digging into our roots
            A7                Dm
But I got a brand new pair of shoes
                Bb       G/B        C7
And you're on a horse in old cowboy boots

CHORUS
                 F                      Dm
And you can't go back and if you try it fails
           Bb                  F/C 
Looking up ahead I see a rusty nail
                    F                    Dm
A sign hanging from it saying "Truth for sale"
                   Bb
And that's what we did
   G/B              F/C

About the artist behind The Captain And The Kid 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]
