Someone Saved My Life Tonight

Elton John

Intro: (Do Twice) Capo 1st Fret


Verse 1:
 When I think of those East End lights
 Muggy nights
 The curtains drawn in the little room downstairs
 Prima Donna lord you really should have been there
 Sitting like a princess perched in her electric chair
And it's one more beer
And I don't hear you anymore
We've all gone crazy lately
My friends out there rolling round the basement floor
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

 And someone saved my life tonight sugar bear     
 You almost had your hooks in me didn't you dear
You nearly had me roped and tied      
 Altar-bound, hypnotized
Sweet freedom whispered in my ear
You're a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
 Fly away, high away bye bye
 Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh        

Intro: (do twice)

Verse 2:
 I never realized the passing hours
 Of evening showers
A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
I'm strangled by your haunted social scene

 Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
 It's four o'clock in the morning
Damn it listen to me good
 I'm sleeping with myself tonight
C#dim (x45650) G
Saved in time, thank God my music's still alive
Ah ah ah ah ah ah

Back To Chorus …………………………………………

(Then do Intro Twice Again, then go to Bridge)

 And I would have walked head on into the deep end the river
 Clinging to your stocks and bonds
Paying your H.P. demands forever
 They're coming in the morning with a truck to take me home
 Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
 Someone saved my life tonight, someone saved my life tonight
 Someone saved my life tonight
 So save your strength and run the field you play alone          

Back To Chorus Again…………………………………………

(Then go to the ending)

Do Intro throughout this part G & C-------6 times and fade

 Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight……………………
