Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Shine Over Babylon  Sheryl Crow

[D]I walked the heat of seven hills
[Am]Endless talk of losing wills
[Em]Great highways in a constant melt
[G]Men and women and children all have overbuilt
[D]Buying bread and paying for none
[Am]Creatures of a waning sun
[Em]Teacher’s hands are overrun
[G]Clowns and gypsies have all but gone

[G]You make me wanna
[Am]Shi[C]ne[G] over Babylon
You make me wanna
[Am]Shi[C]ne[G] over Babylon

[D]Freedoms etched on Sacred pillars
[Am]Hollow stones of mindless filler
[Em]Can lead to madman oil drillers
[G]Won’t be long before we all are killers
[D]Little boy lost way up the mountains
[Am]Cities drowning under boiling fountains
[Em]I dreamed of chilly, sunlit days
[G]I was trembling in a golden haze

[G]You make me wanna
[Am]Shi[C]ne[G] over Babylon
You make me wanna
[Am]Shi[C]ne[G] over Babylon

[D]We celebrate the golden cow
[Am]Praise the bloated bank account
[Em]If there’s a god where is he now
[G]The precipice is slipping further out
[D]Sanskrit message from the mounts
[Am]Leave your possession, hope abounds
[Em]There’s nothing here for you to cry about
[G]We’re all just followers from here on out
[D]I take the stage, I walk the planks
[Am]I sing these songs with little thanks
[Em]I wait for shouts from crazy cranks
[G]I stand amidst the brown shirt ranks
[D]I found my way to Alexandria
[Am]Where gurus bubble up on gangea
[Em]Scavengers, they run up and hand ya
[G]All the junk that should have damned ya

[G]You make me wanna
[Am]Shi[C]ne[G] over Babylon
You make me wanna
[Am]Shi[C]ne[G] over Babylon

[D]   [Am]    [Em]    [G]                          
[D]If everything in life was free
[Am]We'd float in your own reverie
[Em]The things that yo can't seem to see
[G]Seal the gap between you and me

[G]You make me wanna
[Am]Shi[C]ne[G] over Babylon
You make me wanna
[Am]Shi[C]ne[G] over Babylon
