TAKEN FROM ELTON JOHN  CHORDS WEBSITE

 Am    Bb/C - C7   Fdim                 C
Snow.   Ce  - ment      and ivory young towers.
F/A     Em/B      C               G#dim  Am      F                 G/D   /D-/E 
Someone called us Babylon - those hungry hunters tracking down the hours.
G/F   /G-/A  Eb/Bb                              Bb
             But where were all your shoulders when we cried?
         Fm/Ab           G7                Cm
Were the darlings on the sideline dreaming up such cherished lies -
   F/A                          | Bb   Cm7  |  Bb/D  Cm7 - Bb  |  
to whisper in your ear before you die?


CHORUS:
Eb         Eb7                      Ab       Bb
It's party time for the guys in the tower of Babel.
Cm           Ab       Eb/Bb             Bb7sus - Bb7
Sodom meet Gomorrah.          Cain meet   A   -  bel.
        Fm   Cm             Ab                      G                   Cm
Have a ball y'all.  See the letches crawl with the call girls under the table.
                      Ab
Watch them dig their graves -
Eb/Bb                              Bb                  Cm
      'Cause Jesus don't save the guys in the tower of Babel.
Ab                          Eb/Bb
      Watch them dig their graves -
                             Bb                  Fm              Eb
'Cause Jesus don't save the guys in the tower of Babel.  No. No. No.

       | /E  /Gb-/Ab  /A-/Bb  /C  /D  /Bb |



Am    Bb/C - C7   Fdim                        C
Junk.  An  - gel.        This closet's always stacked.
F/A     Em/B    C        G#dim   Am       F                     G/D        /D-/E 
Dealers  in the basement filling your prescrip. for a brand new heart attack.
G/F   /G-/A | Eb/Bb                                   Bb
                   But where were all your shoulders when we cried?
         Fm/Ab        G7              Cm
Were the doctors in attendance saying how they felt so sick inside?
   F/A                              | Bb   Cm7  |  Bb/D  Cm7 - Bb  |  
Or was it just the scalpel blade that lied?
 

{Repeat Chorus twice}
