Elton John - "Curtains Elton John Bernie Taupin" lyrics

I used to know this old scarecrow

He was my song

My joy and sorrow
Cast alone between the furrows

Of a field no longer sown by anyone

I held a dandelion

That said the time had come

To leave upon the wind
Not to return

When summer burned the earth again
Cultivate the freshest flower

This garden ever grew

Beneath these branches
I once wrote such childish words for you

But that's okay
There's treasure children always seek to find

And just like us

You must have had

A once upon a time

Lonely lovely lady....
