Tower of Babel- Elton John from the album Captain Fantastic and the brown dirty cowboy (1975)

If you are also a piano player, the song's sound will be better. But you must sing too!
W Elton John

I VERSE

Em
Snow, 
   C
cement
     F          G 
and ivory young towers
    F              C 
Someone called us Babylon
            F 
Those hungry hunters 
                 G
Tracking down the hours 

         Eb                           Bb
But where were all your shoulders when we cried 
                        Fm
Were the darlings on the sideline

             Cm 
Dreaming up such cherished lies 
      Ab
To whisper in your ear  
           F              F
before you die 

CHORUS
     Eb                     
It's party time for the guys 
    Ab          Bb
in the tower of Babel
  Cm           Ab 
Sodom meet Gomorrah, 
  Eb       Bb
Cain meet Abel
       Fm 
Have a ball y'all 
 Fm
See the letches crawl 
                           Cm
With the call girls under the table 
              Ab
Watch them dig their graves 
           Eb            Bb
`Cause Jesus don't save the guys 
         Fm              Ab
In the tower of Babel 
                         Ab
Watch them dig their graves 
             Eb              Bb
`Cause Jesus don't save the guys 
                   Fm         Eb
In the tower of Babel, no no no 

II VERSE
   Em
Junk, 
   C 
angel, 
    F                G
this closet's always stacked 
    F                C
The dealers in the basement 
             F
Filling your prescription 
             G
For a brand new heart attack 
        Eb                             Bb
But where were all your shoulders when we cried 
               Fm
Were the doctors in attendance 
           Cm
Saying how they felt so sick inside 
                               Ab
Or was it just the scalpel blade that lied.


ENJOY THIS. DON'T MEAN THE NOTES, BUT PAUSES BETWEEN THEM.          RAY
TRY ALSO "LIVE LIKE HORSES" IT'S MINE.
