SACRIFICE
by Elton John and Bernie Taupin
transcribed by Ray Allis
This is my interpretation of this song. Capo wherever's comfotable.

   Its a human [D]sign
2) misunderstanding
[G]  when things go [Em]wrong
2) after the fact
   when the [A]scent of her [D]lingers
2) sensitivity builds a prison
[G]  and temptations [Em]                 [A]
strong 2)
in the final act
   into the [D]boundary
2) we lose direction
[G]  of each married [A]man
2) no stone unturned
   sweet deciept comes a [Bm]calling
2) no tears to damn you
[G]  and negativity [A]lands
2) when jealousy burns
   cold, cold [Bm]heart
[G]  hard done by [A]you
   some things look [Bm]better, baby
[G]  just passing [A]through
   and its no [D]sacrifice
   just a simple [G]word
   when two hearts [A]living [G]
   in to seperate [D]worlds
   and its no [D]sacrifice
   no [G]sacrifice
   no [F#m]sacrific[G]e
  [A] at  [D]  all     [F#m]           [G]         [D]        [F#m]          [G]


3) I gave my [D]all          [G]             [Em]             [A]
   I gave my [D]all          [G]             [Em]             [A]
(repeat ad nauseam)
