Tower Of Babel  Elton John





















[Em]Snow,
cem[C]ent
and i[F]vory young [G]towers
Some[F]one called us B[C]abylon
Those hungry[F] hunters
Tracking down the[G] hours

But where[Eb] were all your shoulders when[Bb] we cried
Were the darlings on the[Fm] sideline

Dreaming up s[Cm]uch cherished lies
To whi[Ab]sper in your ear
before you [F]die            [F]

CHORUS
It's [Eb]party time for the guys
in t[Ab]he tower of [Bb]Babel
So[Cm]dom meet Gomo[Ab]rrah,
Ca[Eb]in meet A[Bb]bel
Have a [Fm]ball y'all
S[Fm]ee the letches crawl
With the call girls under t[Cm]he table
Watch them dig[Ab] their graves
`Cause Jesu[Eb]s don't save t[Bb]he guys
In the to[Fm]wer of Babel    [Ab]
Watch them dig their grav[Ab]es
`Cause Jesus [Eb]don't save the g[Bb]uys
In the tower of Bab[Fm]el, no no n[Eb]o

II VERSE
Jun[Em]k,

ang[C]el,
this[F] closet's always [G]stacked
The [F]dealers in the ba[C]sement
Filling your [F]prescription
For a brand n[G]ew heart attack
But wher[Eb]e were all your shoulders when [Bb]we cried
Were the doctor[Fm]s in attendance
Saying how [Cm]they felt so sick inside
Or was it just the scalpel blad[Ab]e that lied.


ENJOY THIS. DON'T MEAN THE NOTES, BUT PAUSES BETWEEN THEM. RAY
TRY ALSO "LIVE LIKE HORSES" IT'S MINE.
