INTRO
Cm | Ab7 | Bb G/B | Cm
Cm9 | Ab7 | Bb G7 | Cm
                    ("ah-ha-ha-ha..."
    (in time)
Cm | Fm/C Cm | Cm | Fm/C Cm |

VERSE
    Cm                                      Ab7
The sun is up and the shades are all pulled down
         Bb            G/B          Cm
I'm more paranoid with every little sound
         Cm                             Ab7
Like the leaf blower blowing the leaves around
      G7                                 Cm
And a siren wailing on the other side of town

VERSE
       Cm                                    Ab7
Oh the TV's on and the colors really hurt my head
           Bb                 G/B             Cm
If I could think straight I'd wish that I was dead
   Cm                            Ab7
Or curled up naked in my lover's bed
            G7                                      Cm
Instead I'm hanging over Hell suspended by a single thread

CHORUS
            Fm7                        Bb
And I don't recall who said it at this time
          Ab           Eb                 Bb
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
           Fm7                     Bb
I built it up and the wolf he came around
              Ab                    Eb
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
              G7/D
He huffed and puffed,
              Cm             Fm7   G7   Cm
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down

INSTRUMENTAL
Cm | Fm/C Cm | Cm | Fm/C Cm |

VERSE
       Cm                                  Ab7
With a rolled up note I'm hovering on that line
      Bb               G/B          Cm
Three days on a diet of cocaine and wine
      Cm                               Ab7
And a little weed just to level me sometime
          G7                                                Cm
I put the clock in the drawer 'cause I've cancelled out the time

CHORUS
               Fm7                   Bb
And still that saying gets inside my head
          Ab           Eb                 Bb
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
           Fm7                     Bb
I built it up and the wolf he came around
              Ab                    Eb
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
              G7/D
He huffed and puffed,
              Cm             Fm7   G7   Cm
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down

BREAKDOWN
         Am7b5
So don't knock on my door, don't try to call
    Ab7
I'm holed up in this room talking to the wall
               Am7b5
When you're as high as this you think you know it all
            Ab7                                   G G/A G/B G/A G7
When you're this deep in there's no place else to fall

INSTRUMENTAL
                   Cm | Ab7 | Bb G/B | Cm
"I'm bottoming out"
Cm | Ab7 | G7 | Cm

CHORUS
            Fm7                        Bb
And I don't recall who said it at this time
          Ab           Eb                 Bb
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
           Fm7                     Bb
I built it up and the wolf he came around
              Ab                    Eb
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
              G7/D
He huffed and puffed,
              Cm             Fm7   G7   Cm
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down
               Fm7                   Bb
And still that saying gets inside my head
          Ab           Eb                 Bb
That your enemies grow strong on what you leave behind
           Fm7                     Bb
I built it up and the wolf he came around
              Ab                    Eb
He huffed and puffed, he huffed and puffed
              G7/D
He huffed and puffed,
              Cm             Fm7   G7   Cm
He huffed and puffed and the house fell down
        Fm7   G7   Cm
And the house fell down

About the artist behind And The House Fell Down Chords:

Sir Elton Hercules John CBE[1] [2] (born Reginald Kenneth Dwight on 25 March 1947) is an English pop/rock singer, composer and pianist.

In his four-decade career, John has been one of the dominant forces in rock and popular music, especially during the 1970s. He has sold more than 250 million albums[citation needed] and over one hundred million singles,[3] making him one of the most successful artists of all time. He has more than 50 Top 40 hits including seven consecutive #1 U.S. albums, 59 Top 40 singles, 16 Top 10, 4 #2 hits, and nine #1 hits. He has won five Grammy awards and one Academy Award. His success has had a profound impact on popular music and has contributed to the continued popularity of the piano in rock and roll. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked him #49 on their list of the 100 greatest artists of all time.[4]

Some of the characteristics of John's musical talent include an ability to quickly craft melodies for the lyrics of songwriting partner Bernie Taupin, his former rich tenor (now baritone) voice, his classical and gospel-influenced piano, the aggressive orchestral arrangements of Paul Buckmaster among others and the flamboyant fashions, outlandishly excessive eye glasses, and on-stage showmanship, especially evident during the 1970s.

John was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994. He has been heavily involved in the fight against AIDS since the late 1980s and was knighted in 1998. He entered into a civil partnership with David Furnish on 21 December 2005 and continues to be a champion for the LGBT social movements. On April 9, 2008 Elton John held a benefit concert for the Hillary Clinton Presidential Campaign, and raised $2.5 million.[5]
