Rotten Peaches
Rotten Peaches Chords
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Key: Dmaj  3/4 time

First Chord: (w/ Slide) A
|(tacit)       |		   |Bm            |  
We've moved on six miles from where we were yesterday
       |C#m7	 |     |D   	       |	(D, C#m)  |   Bm
And yesterday is but a long long ways away
(Bm) 	      |C#m7	    | D		    | D6 	
So we'll camp out tonight       beneath the bright starlight
    |A		  	         |G	        |D 	    |
And forget rotten peaches and the places we've stayed

I left from the dockland two years ago now
Made my way over on the S.S. Marie
And I've always had trouble wherever I've settled
Rotten peaches are all that I see

CHORUS (2x’s)
|G	       |A 	      |D      |  D      |Dsus4  D
Rotten peaches rotting in the sun
|G 			   |A		         |D    |Dsus4  D
Seems I've seen that devil fruit since the world begun
A     	    |A/G#     |F#m7        | D  (hold)        |
Mercy I'm a criminal, Jesus I'm the one
       |A      |G	      |D
Rotten peaches rotting in the sun

There ain't no green grass in a U.S. state prison
There is no one to hold when you're sick for your wife
And each day out you'll pick, you'll pick rotten peaches
You'll pick rotten peaches for the rest of your life

Oh I've had me my fill of cocaine and pills
For I lie in the light of the Lord
And my home is ten thousand, ten thousand miles away
And I guess I won't see it no more

CHORUS (2x’s)

A		 G		    D
La la la la la la, La la la la la la, La la la la la la

About the artist behind Rotten Peaches:

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]
