Tiny Dancer - Elton John

Intro is:    C    F    C    F     C    F    C    F


C         F          C    F     C                       F          C
Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
C      F     C      F       C                    F             F
Pretty eyed, pirate smile,  you'll marry a music man
F      Em  Am             D          F  Em             Am    G
Ballerina,  you must have seen her,  	dancing in the sand
C             F     C       F        C                 F
And now she's in me, always with me, tiny dancer in my hand


C             F            C    F             C                 F    C
Jesus freaks, out in the street,  handing out tickets for God
C        F     C       F       C                         F     F
Turning back, she just laughs, The boulevard is not that bad
F      Em  Am            D    F  Em             Am     G
Piano man, he makes his stand,   in the auditorium
C           F              C         F         C                  F
Looking on, she sings the songs, the words she knows the tune she hums

INTRO (again):    C    F    C    F     C    F    C    F


Bridge


Ab            Bb
But oh how it feels so real
Gm              Cm
Lying here with no one near
Ab               Bb
Only you and you can hear me
           Bm      G
When I say softly slowly

Chorus (x2)

F       C           Dm
Hold me closer tiny dancer
F         C                 A7sus4
Count the headlights on the highway
F      C                 Dm
Lay me down in sheets of linen
F         C        A7sus4
You had a busy day today

F       C           Dm
Hold me closer tiny dancer
F         C                 A7sus4
Count the headlights on the highway
F      C                 Dm
Lay me down in sheets of linen
F         C        A7sus4
You had a busy day today

INTRO (again):    C    F    C    F     C    F    C    F

Notes:

I'd probably do the C to F intro like Keith Richards (without the open G tuning that is)...
Code:

   C  F  or  C    F
E-----------------------|
B--5--6------8----10----|
G--5--5------9----10----|
D--5--7------10---10----|
A-----------------------|
E-----------------------|


try these voicing for the bridge:
Code:

    Ab   Bb  Gm  Cm   Ab  Bb  Bm  G
E----------------------------------------------|
B----4---6----8---8---9---11--12--12-----------|
G----5---7----7---8---8---9---11--12-----------|
D----6---8----8---10--10--12--12--12-----------|
A----------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------|

Or,

    Ab   Bb  Gm  Cm   Ab  Bb  Bm  G
E--------------------------------------------|
B----4---3----3---4---4---6---7---8----------|
G----5---3----3---5---5---7---7---7----------|
D----6---3----5---5---6---8---9---9----------|
A--------------------------------------------|
E--------------------------------------------|
