Peering out of tiny eyes
 
The

grubby hands that gripped the rail
F 
Wiped the window clean of frost
C/E 
As the morning air laid  
G 
on the latch

A whistle awakened someone there

Next door to the nursery just down the hall
A strange new sound you never heard before
A strange new sound that makes boys explore

Tread neat so small those little feet

Amid the morning his small heart beats
So much excitement yesterday
That must be rewarded must be displayed

D7 

His puzzled head tipped to one side

Amazement swims in those bright green eyes
Glancing down upon this thing
That make strange sounds, strange sounds that sing

In those silent happy seconds

That surround the sound of this event
A parent smile is made in moments
They have made for you a friend

  1. Very very nice

  2. Do you only have the first nine albums? Anything post Captain Fantasic?

  3. The first few albums have been added to the new site. The old site can be found at http://2008.eltonjohnchords.com. I will work on getting more albums up as I find time. I’m pretty bus this summer, but if you really need a song feel free to message me and I may be able to e-mail it to you.
