Chart debut for Elton's country duet
August 1, 2005

Where We Both Say Goodbye, the duet between Elton and Australian country singer
Catherine Britt has entered the Billboard Country Singles Chart at Number 49. This is the first time Elton has appeared on the Billboard Country Chart as an artist.*

Elton first encountered teenager Catherine Britt when he was touring Australia in 2002. He heard one of her recordings, and invited her to meet him backstage in Sydney. Through Elton's contacts Catherine later secured a US record deal with RCA. Too Far Gone is the album from which this single is taken.

*[In 2003 Tim McGraw's version of Tiny Dancer gave Elton a chart placing on the country chart as a songwriter.]

Your Song
 
Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Elton John
  
 
It's a little bit funny this feeling inside
I'm not one of those who can easily hide
I don't have much money but boy if I did
I'd buy a big house where we both could live
If I was a sculptor, but then again, no
Or a man who makes potions in a travelling show
I know it's not much but it's the best I can do
My gift is my song and this one's for you
And you can tell everybody this is your song
It may be quite simple but now that it's done
I hope you don't mind
I hope you don't mind that I put down in words
How wonderful life is while you're in the world
I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss
Well a few of the verses well they've got me quite cross
But the sun's been quite kind while I wrote this song
It's for people like you that keep it turned on
So excuse me forgetting but these things I do
You see I've forgotten if they're green or they're
blue
Anyway the thing is what I really mean
Yours are the sweetest eyes I've ever seen
    1969 Dick James Music, Inc
