Madman Across the Water

Song Author Elton John Lyrics by: Elton John Performer: Elton John Submitted by: Anonymous
I can [Am]see    [Am/G]very      [F]well
There's a [C/E]boat on the reef with a [D/F#]broken back
And I can [F]see it [G]very [Am]well   
There's a [Am]joke and I [Am/G]know it very [F]well
It's one of [C/E]those that I told you [D/F#]long ago,
Take my [F]word I'm a [G]madman don't you [Am]know   

[C]Get a load of [G/B]him    
he's so in[Esus]sane      [E]    
Better get your [C/E]coat     [D/F#]dear     
it [F]looks [G]like [Am]rain   

[C/E]We'll come [D/F#]again next [F]Thursday [G]after[Am]noon   
[C/E]The inlaws [D/F#]hope they'll [F]see you [G]very [Am]soon   
[Fmaj7]But is it in your conscious that you're [Esus]after [E]    [F]    [G]    
[Am]Another glimpse of the [F]madman [G]across the [Am]water

Once a fool had a [Am/G]good part in the [F]play
If it's [C/E]so would I still be [D/F#]here today
It's quite [F]peculiar in a [G]funny sort of [Am]way   
They think it's [F]very funny [G]everything I [Am]say   
[C]Is the nightmare [G/B]black or are the windows [Esus]painted [E]    
Will you come [C/E]again next [D/F#]week     
well I'm [F]not [G]gonna [Am]fake it

I can see very well
There's a boat on the reef with a broken back
And I can see it very well
There's a joke and I know it very well
It's one of those that I told you long ago,
Take my word I'm a madman don't you know

Get a load of him
he's so insane
Better get your coat dear
it looks like rain

We'll come again next Thursday afternoon
The inlaws hope they'll see you very soon
But is it in your conscious that you're after
Another glimpse of the madman across the water

Once a fool had a good part in the play
If it's so would I still be here today
It's quite peculiar in a funny sort of way
They think it's very funny everything I say
Is the nightmare black or are the windows painted
Will you come again next week
well I'm not gonna fake it
