[Verse]

G       Bm          C   Csus4 C
  Hey Nikita is it cold
                      G             Gsus4 G
In your little corner of the world?
                D                Dsus4 D
You could roll around the globe
          D7            G            Gsus4 G
And never find a warmer soul to know

     G7             C    Csus2 C C6 C
Oh I saw you by the wall
                         G        Gsus4 G Gsus2
Ten of your tin soldiers in a row
                           D           D6 D Dsus4 D 
With eyes that looked like ice on fire
           D7             G            G    Gsus4 G
The human heart a captive in the snow


[Chorus]

          G7       C           C Csus2 C
Oh Nikita you will never know
          G             Gsus4 G
Anything about my home
                                     D
I'll never know how good it feels to hold you
Dsus4  D7         G            Gsus4 G
Oh,      Nikita I need you so

Oh, Nikita is the other side
             G             Gsus2 G
Of any given line in time
                               D
Counting ten tin soldiers in a row?
Dsus4 D7                G
Oh    no, Nikita you'll never know


[Break]

G Bm Bm7 C C#m7b5 Dsus4


[Verse]

Do you ever dream of me?

Do you ever see the letters that I write?

When you look up through the wire

Nikita do you count the stars at night?


And if there comes a time

Guns and gates no longer hold you in

And if you're free to make a choice

Just look towards the west and find a friend


[Chorus]

          G7       C           C Csus2 C
Oh Nikita you will never know
          G             Gsus4 G
Anything about my home
                                     D
I'll never know how good it feels to hold you
Dsus4  D7         G            Gsus4 G
Oh,      Nikita I need you so

      G7          C           Csus2 C 
Oh, Nikita is the other side
             G             Gsus2 G
Of any given line in time
                               D
Counting ten tin soldiers in a row?

About the artist behind Nikita:

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]
