Emily  Elton John

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the Album The One
[C] [Fm/C] [Db/Ab] [Eb+9/Bb]  
[C]The church bells ring out[F] morning glory[G] [C]
When summer bends to[F] the winter's rage[G] [C]
[Am]Emily [F]walks through the cemetery[G] [C]
[Am]Passed a d[F]og in an unmar[G]ked grave[C] [F] [C]
[C]The old girl hobb[F]les, nylons s[G]agging[C]
Talks to her sister[F]s in the gro[G]und[C]
[Am]I saw a [F]lie in the mi[G]rror this morning[C]
[Am]I heard a p[F]rophesy all aro[G]und[Am] [G/B]
And Em[F/C]ily [C]they come and go[Fm/C]
The shadows[Db/Ab] and t[Eb/Bb]he distant sounds[F6]
But [F/C]Emily [C]don't be afraid[Fm/C]
When the weight of ange[Db/Ab]ls weig[Eb/Bb]hs you down[F6]
Emily prays to a faded hero
In a little frame clutched to her gown
Hears the voice of promise in his memory
Tonight's the night they let the ladder down
In a cage sits a gold canary
By a wicker chair and a rosewood loom
As a soul ascends abord the evening
Canary sings to an empty room
[Abmaj7]Em- [Db/Ab] ily
[Eb/Ab]Em- [Bb] ily
[F6]Em- i[C]ly
