All That I'm Allowed  Elton John

'All that I'm Allowed'
Intro: C# (c a# g# f# d# c) B/C# (a# g# f# c# d# g#)
C# (c a# g# f# d# c) B/C# (a# g# f# c# d# g#)
Verse 1: C# Ab/C#
Breaking down never seems to be that hard.
Falling sho[B/C#]rt is always in t[F#/C#]he cards.
Among the road, s[C#]un rising up my back[Ab/C#],
Lost it a[B/C#]ll somewhere between th[F#/C#]e cracks.
I always hope[Ebm]d that I'd do better.[Ab]
That I'd come out on to[Ebm]p for once.[Ab]
We all get[Am] what we're delivered.[Bbm]
Then there are th[Ebm]e lucky ones.[Ab]
Chorus: And I've got all that I'm[C#] allowed.
It'll[C#/C] do for[C#/A#] me.
I'm thankful now.
The wal[C#/G#]ls get h[F#]igher everyday.
The barriers [Ab]get in the w[C#/A#]ay,
But I see hope[Eb] in every cloud, and I'm thankful,[C#]
[Ab/C#]Thankful. [B/C#] I'm thankful, so th[F#]ankful;
I'm th[Ebm]ankful I've got all th[B]at I'm al[Ab]lowed.[C#]
Verse 2: C# Ab/C#
Leaving town gets to feel just like a job.
My desire [B/C#]never winds up on to[F#/C#]p.
I can't say now [C#]I didn't want to [Ab/C#]moon.
It's out of rea[B/C#]ch:
Somewhere beyond this [F#/C#]room.
I always hope[Ebm]d that I'd do better,[Ab]
That I'd come out on t[Ebm]op for once.[Ab]
We all get [Am]what we're delivered,[Bbm]
Then there are th[Ebm]e lucky ones.[Ab]
-Repeat chorus-
Bridge: B F#
I've always tried to make things clear.
Then I watc[A]hed as progress [E]stalled.[F#]
I only ho[B]pe I'm standing here[F#]
When heaven [F#/F]finall[Ebm]y comes to call.[Ab]
-Repeat chorus-
Instrument break C# C#/C C#/A# C#/G# F# Ab C#/A# Ebm
Outro: Ab/C# B/C# F# Ebm
Thankful, I'm thankful, so thankful. I'm thankfull,
I've got all [B]that I'm [Ab]allowe[C#]d. [C#/C] [C#/A] [C#/G#] [F#]
All that I'm [Ab]allow[C#]ed.[C#/C] [C#/A#] [C#/G#]
I'm th[F#]ankful, and I've got all that I'm allowed[Ab].[C#] [C#/C] [C#/A] [C#/G#]
