Empty Sky  Elton John

Intro: | E | E D/E | E | E D/E |
[D]I'm not a rat to be [A]spat on [E]locked up in this room.
[D]Those bars that look tow[A]ards the sun at [E]night look towards the moon.
[G]Everyday the [A]swallows play in the [E]clouds of love.
[G]Make me wish that [F#m]I had wings take me [B]high above.
[Am7]And I looked h[G]igh [D]- and saw the empty [A]sky.
[Am7]If I could [G]only, [D] I could only [A]fly.
[G]I'd drift with [D/F#]them in endless s[A/E]pace.[A]
[G]But no man [D/F#]flies from this p[E]lace.
At [D]night I lay u[A]pon my bench and [E]stare towards the stars.
The [D]cold night air comes [A]creeping in and [E]home seems oh so far.
If [G]only I could [A]swing upon those [E]twinkling dots above.
I'd [G]look down from the [F#m]heavens u[B]pon the ones I love.
[D]Hey - the lucky [A]locket hangs a[E]round your precious neck.
[D]Some luck I ever [A]got with you and I [E]- wouldn't like to bet -
[G]that sooner or later you'll [A]own just one [E]half of this land.
By [G]shining your [F#m]eyes on the [B]wealth of every man.
[D] [D/A]Just send [A]up my [E]love. [D] A[A]in't seen n[E]othing but tears.
[D] [A]Now I've g[E]ot myself [D]- [A]in this [E]room for years.
[D] [A]Don't see [E]no one one,[D] [A]Never see [E]anyone
[D] [A]Yeah we're [E]high, yeah[D] [A] [E]
[D] [A] [E]
