Cold Highway chords by Elton John

Guitar chords with lyrics

Intro
Dm C Bb Em E/G# Am

verse 1
Am                Dm  C
Your life stepped lightly out our hands
   Bb        C         F Em E/G# Am
When no one's looking out you understand
                       Dm  C
Your world was a wheel but the cog ceased to turn
  Bb           F/A     Gm7   C
The bottom fell out and our fingers got burned

  A7/C#   Bb7          Bb7/C Dm7        Dm7
And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down
     Bb7         Bb7/C Dm7       Dm7/C
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground
    Gm7        Gm7/C# Am7    Dm Dm/C
Oh your black icy stare once cut down my friend
    F              Bb       F/A Gm7
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end

Em E/G# Am

verse 2

Am                Dm  C
Every new version of the way of life
      Bb             C         F Em E/G# Am
Leaves you reckless and searching for stars in the night
Am                    Dm  C
But whose kid are you when they finally decide
  Bb           F/A       Gm7 C
The lifestyle you led and the way that you died


  A7/C#   Bb7          Bb7/C Dm7        Dm7
And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down
     Bb7         Bb7/C Dm7       Dm7/C
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground
    Gm7        Gm7/C# Am7    Dm Dm/C
Oh your black icy stare once cut down my friend
    F              Bb       F/A Gm7
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end

verse 3

F         Dm F  Bb            Bb7
But they're oh so simple, they're still trying to tell
   G/B            C     F  Em E/G#
The difference for you between heaven and hell
Am             Dm      Dm/C
To glorify something, your 🏷Legends are found
G/B              C      C/Bb  C/A Em E/G# Am
But all they bought you was a hole in the ground

verse 4

Am              Dm  C
Years rolling by just like a dream (ooh)
Bb            C     F   Em E/G# Am
I'm partly human and I'm partly machine
                        Dm  C
They've lost you and fate put your name on a stone (ahh)
  Bb              F/A      Gm7 C
Perhaps now my friend they might leave you alone (ahh)

  A7/C#   Bb7          Bb7/C Dm7        Dm7
And there's a cold, cold highway that the wind whistles down
     Bb7         Bb7/C Dm7       Dm7/C
Where the corners turn blind like the graveyard ground
    Gm7        Gm7/C# Am7    Dm Dm/C
Oh your black icy stare once cut down my friend
    F              Bb       F/A Gm7
In the deepest dark winter when the world seemed to end
