C               F                  C
Levon wears his war wound like a crown.
F                   C
He calls his child Jesus
G                    Am
`Cause he likes the name
       Em7               F                Dm7
And he sends him to the finest school in town


     C      F               C
And Levon, Levon likes his money
F                    C
He makes a lot they say
G               Am
Spend his days counting
      Em7           F   Dm7
In a garage by the motorway


Em7              Am                  F
He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
         C                   Dm7                  C
When the New York Times said God is dead and the war's begun
F             C         Dm7
Alvin Tostig has a son today


         C       F                       C
And he shall be Levon and he shall be a good man
                 F                            C
And he shall be Levon in tradition with the family plan
                 F                       C
And he shall be Levon and he shall be a good man
F        C    G
He shall be Levon


C            F                  C
Levon sells cartoon balloons in town
F                    C
His family business thrives
G                            Am
Jesus blows up balloons all day
     Em7                  F           Dm7
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly


C              F               C
And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus
F                  C
Leaving Levon far behind
G                     Am
Take a balloon and go sailing
      Em7      F           Dm7
While Levon, Levon slowly dies


It's actually in F but I, and many, can't sing that high. Transpose it if you wish at http://logue.net/xp/
This is way better than that annoying version that is friggin' everywhere. Thanks also
http://www.eltonscafe.com/Songs/Levon.htm for great Elton stuff.

If you Capo the 3rd fret I think that gets you to the original key. Great TAB thank you very much.

Capo should be on the 5th fret, actually.

Watch the bass lines... Elton likes to walk his bass lines up and down like this (C to B to A):

------------------ C --- G/B ----------------- Am
He calls his child Jesus, `Cause he likes the name

And this (F to E to D to C):

----------------------------------- F
He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
-------- C/E --------------- Dm7 ----------------------- C
When the New York Times said God is dead and the war's begun
