ORIGINAL SIN   Elton John

Capo: 1st fret

[Intro]

C Dm7 C C G
C Dm7 C C G

[Verse 1]

          C
Oh, it's carnival night
               F                   G         Gsus4 G
And they're stringing the lights around you
              Am
Hanging paper angels
          Dm7                  G     Gsus4 G
Painting little devils on the roof

        C
Oh the furnace wind
       F                   G             Gsus4 G 
Is a flickering of wings about your face
              Am
In a cloud of incense
           Dm7                        G 
Yeah, it smells like Heaven in this place


[Bridge]
        F
I can't eat, can't sleep
                G                        Em
Still I hunger for you when you look at me
      F
That face, those eyes
         G
All the sinful pleasures deep inside


[Chorus]
         C             G                 Am              Em
Tell me how, you know now, the ways and means of getting in
                F
Underneath my skin,
            G                   C
Oh you were always my original sin
              C               G           Am        Em
And tell me why, I shudder inside, every time we begin
                F 
This dangerous game
            G                   C  Dm7 C C G
Oh you were always my original sin

C Dm7 C C G

[Verse 2]
               C
A dream will fly
     F                   G            Gsus4 G
The moment that you open up your eyes
                   Am
A dream is just a riddle
            Dm7                   G    Gsus4 G
Ghosts from every corner of your life
           C
Up in the balcony
         F                   G            Gsus4 G 
All the Romeos are bleeding for your hand
                 Am
Blowing theater kisses
          Dm7                    G
Reciting lines they don't understand

[Bridge]
        F
I can't eat, can't sleep
                G                        Em
Still I hunger for you when you look at me
      F
That face, those eyes
         G
All the sinful pleasures deep inside


[Chorus]
         C             G                 Am              Em
Tell me how, you know now, the ways and means of getting in
                F
Underneath my skin,
            G                   C
Oh you were always my original sin
              C               G           Am        Em
And tell me why, I shudder inside, every time we begin
                F 
This dangerous game
            G                   Am    G
Oh you were always my original sin
         C             G                 Am              Em
Tell me how, you know now, the ways and means of getting in
                F
Underneath my skin,
            G                   C
Oh you were always my original sin
              C               G           Am        Em
And tell me why, I shudder inside, every time we begin
                F 
This dangerous game
            G                   Am   Dm7 C C G
Oh you were always my original sin

[Outro]
