The lyrics, written by Taupin, contain autobiographical elements, referring to his childhood on a farm in Lincolnshire. The song expresses a desire to return to one’s “roots,” a common theme in Taupin’s early lyrics. In 2014, Taupin reflected, “It’s been said many times, but Goodbye Yellow Brick Road is a cinematic album. The lyrics to the title track do say that I want to leave Oz and get back to the farm. I think that’s still my M.O. these days. I don’t mind getting out there and doing what everybody else was doing, but I always had to have an escape hatch.” In 2020, he added, “I don’t believe I was ever turning my back on success or saying I didn’t want it. I just don’t believe I was ever that naïve. I think I was just hoping that maybe there was a happy medium way to exist successfully in a more tranquil setting. I guess my only naiveté was believing I could do it so early on. I had to travel a long road and visit the school of hard knocks before I could come even close to achieving that goal.” Reference: Wikipedia.
