Sacrifice

Sinead Oconnor


this song is written by Mr. Elton John and it's called "Sacrifice". I'd never recognized this song until an irish girl named Sinead O'Connor sang it in her own special version.
In this version the song is played on a synthesizer, Key Eb, so it may be easier for you to capo on the 3rd Fret, although I have guitarified some parts. The lyrics aren't placed exactly under the correspondending notes, so you better listen to the song - you'll find it on:
"Two rooms - Celebrating the songs of Elton John and Bernie Taupin".
