Tower of Babel  Elton John

Year : 1975
Album : Captain Fantastic & the Brown Dirt Cowboy
Writers : Elton John & Bernie Taupin
S[Am]now. [Bb/C] Ce [-]- [C7]ment [Fdim] and ivory young [C]towers.
[F/A]Someone [Em/B]called us [C]Babylon - those [G#dim]hungry [Am]hunters [F]tracking down the [G/D]hours.[/D-/E]
[G/F] [/G-/A] [Eb/Bb]But where were all your shoulders w[Bb]hen we cried?
Were the [Fm/Ab]darlings on the [G7]sideline dreaming [Cm]up such cherished lies -
F/A | Bb Cm7 | Bb/D Cm7 - Bb |
to whisper in your ear before you die?
[Eb]It's party [Eb7]time for the guys in the [Ab]tower of [Bb]Babel.
[Cm]Sodom meet Go[Ab]morrah. [Eb/Bb] Cain meet [Bb7sus] A -[-] [Bb7]bel.
Have a b[Fm]all y[Cm]'all. See the [Ab]letches crawl with the c[G]all girls under the [Cm]table.
Watch them dig their g[Ab]raves -
[Eb/Bb] 'Cause Jesus don't save the g[Bb]uys in the tower of [Cm]Babel.
[Ab] Watch them dig their g[Eb/Bb]raves -
'Cause Jesus don't save the g[Bb]uys in the tower of [Fm]Babel. No. No. [Eb]No.

[Am]Junk. [Bb/C] An [-]- [C7]gel. [Fdim] This closet's always [C]stacked.
[F/A]Dealers [Em/B] in the [C]basement [G#dim]filling [Am]your pres[F]crip. for a brand new [G/D]heart attac[/D-/E]k.
G/F /G-/A | Eb/Bb Bb
But where were all your shoulders when we cried?
Were the [Fm/Ab]doctors in at[G7]tendance saying [Cm]how they felt so sick inside?
F/A | Bb Cm7 | Bb/D Cm7 - Bb |
Or was it just the scalpel blade that lied?
