The Measure Of A Man by ELTON JOHN
Standard Tuning
Key: C

INTRO
He plays E and G notes, but you can stay in C as well

C
These battered hand are all you own
Am
This broken heart has turned to stone
F			  C
Go hang your glory on the wall
Am				Em
There comes a time when castles fall
F	Em	Dm	C		G
And all that's left is shifting in the sand
C				   Dm
You're out of time, you're out of place
	      Em
Look at your face
	   F		G	C
That's the measure of a man

C
This coat that fits you like a glove
Am
These dirty streets you learned to love
F			     C
So welcome back my long lost friend
Am			     Em
You've been to hell and back again
F	Em	Dm	C	     G
God alone knows how you crossed that span
C			      Dm
Back on the beat, back to the start
	      Em
Trust in your heart
	   F		G	C
That's the measure of a man

C			Dm		    Em
It's the fire in the eyes, the lines on the hand
	 F		G	C
It's the things you understand
Am				Em
Permanent ties from which you once ran
	   F		G	D#	Cm
That's the measure of a man

D#
You've come full circle, now you're home
Cm
Without the gold, without the chrome
G#				D#
And this is where you've always been
	    Cm		     G#
You had to lose so you could win
G#	Gm	Fm	D#		A#
And rise above your troubles while you can
	    D#			Cm
Now you can love, now you can lose
	    Gm
Now you can choose
	   G#		A#	D#
That's the measure of a man

D#			Fm		Gm
It's the fire in the eyes, the lines on the hand
	 G#		A#	D#
It's the things you understand
...
REPEAT THE SAME SEQUENCE, REMEMBER THAT IN THIS SECOND PART THE KEY LIFTS TO D#
The permanent ties from which you once ran
That's the measure of a man
You've come full cirlce, now you're home
Without the gold, without the chrome
And this is where you've always been
You had to lose so you could win
And rise above your troubles while you can
Now you can love, now you can lose
Now you can choose
That's the measure of a man

AND THAT'S ABOUT IT, THIS IS MY FIRST TAB, IT'S THE ONLY SONG I COULDN'T FIND HERE, ANY

Pretty good. My only complaint is that idiots like me that have no idea how to work with keys are pretty much struggling to make sense out of some of it, but other than that, sounds spot on
