By Elton John. For Piano/Keyboard. Hal Leonard Keyboard Recorded Versions. Rock and Pop Rock. Difficulty: medium. Songbook. Vocal melody, piano accompaniment, lyrics, chord names and introductory text. 160 pages. Published by Hal Leonard (HL.694829).

Elton John’s first U.S. number one single.  This song is a great tune about the old tunes from the late 50s to early 60s, when rock was young.   A song Bernie Taupin described as fun at the time it has remained a fun time for many fans at dances and receiptions.

Early performance from back in ’72.
