You had your grand illusion and wrestled with your fate
    Fm/Ab                          G7
The winter of your discontent came twenty years too late

If it was love and I was there I've forgotten where it lives

We both stepped off a frozen rock onto a burning bridge

VERSE

I saw you cross the landing and descending marble stairs

Like Caesar crossed the Rubicon you seemed to walk on air

The truth just flew off every page

Your songs have all the hooks

You're seven wonders rolled in one
    Am7b5           Ab6
You shifted gear to cruise

Oh you came to town in headlines
          Bb9            Eb
And eight hundred dollar shoes

Oh the bellboys are crying and moneys changing hands

Your cloak and dagger legacy's gone home to no man's land
    Cm                 Cm/Bb           F/A             Ab6
The marquee lights are flickering your poster's fading fast

Your being here just melts away like ice cubes in a glass

About the artist behind Eight Hundred Dollar Shoes:

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]
