Mansfield
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Songs From The West Coast

F/A    Bb    F    C/G   C    D
F/A    Bb    F    C/G   C    D

       A                    D/A
It's a case I guess of paradise lost
G                              Bm/F#
Ten years back on the hands of the clock
          C                    G
In that little house on Mansfield
                 D
On your old block
F#m                                   G                      D
Sometimes the magic of the past is all we've got

Just you and me at a crossroads then
Ain't it funny how we were old friends
Accidentally thrown together
Did we intend
To be the romantic novel you never want to end

                  G/B                                      C
And it's the contact of the eye that meets across a crowded room
      G                                      D
And how I kind of wound up the lyrics to your tune
               G/B                                C                       D
You said, 'Funny but it feels like I've known you all my life
      F/A            Bb          F         C/G        C            D
And how it might feel to kiss you on the mouth tonight'

        Eb                      Bb/D               Cm7        Bb
In between the Star of David and the California moon
       Eb                           Bb/D                F
The Santa Ana winds blew warm into your room
              Eb                    Bb/D
We were crazy, wild and running
                  Cm7        Bb
Blind to the change to come
          Cm                 D
In that little house on Mansfield
        Gm Eb                        Bb    F
We'd wake at the break of dawn
        Gm     Eb         F       G
In an Indian summer gone

In the candlelight I can recall
Your naked shadow looking ten feet tall
Like a wild pony dancing
Along the wall
Off balance I found love the only place to fall

   Gm Eb                        Bb    F
We'd wake at the break of dawn
        Gm     Eb         F       G
In an Indian summer gone
   Gm Eb                        Bb    F
We'd wake at the break of dawn
        Gm     Eb         F       G
In an Indian summer gone
