Tower Of Babel

Elton John

 Em
 Snow,
 C
cement
 FG
and ivory young towers
 FC
Someone called us Babylon
 F
Those hungry hunters
 G
Tracking down the hours

 EbBb
But where were all your shoulders when we cried
 Fm
Were the darlings on the sideline

 Cm
Dreaming up such cherished lies
 Ab
To whisper in your ear
 FF
before you die             

CHORUS
 Eb
It's party time for the guys
 AbBb
in the tower of Babel
 CmAb
Sodom meet Gomorrah,
 EbBb
Cain meet Abel
 Fm
Have a ball y'all
 Fm
See the letches crawl
 Cm
With the call girls under the table
 Ab
Watch them dig their graves
 EbBb
`Cause Jesus don't save the guys
 FmAb
In the tower of Babel     
 Ab
Watch them dig their graves
 EbBb
`Cause Jesus don't save the guys
 FmEb
In the tower of Babel, no no no

II VERSE
 Em
Junk,

 C
angel,
 FG
this closet's always stacked
 FC
The dealers in the basement
 F
Filling your prescription
 G
For a brand new heart attack
 EbBb
But where were all your shoulders when we cried
 Fm
Were the doctors in attendance
 Cm
Saying how they felt so sick inside
 Ab
Or was it just the scalpel blade that lied.

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