[Intro]
G C7 G C7

[Verse]
G
The sister of sunlight
C7
Comes to my lonely life
G
Bearing the crosses I hung
C7
I hung on my lonely wife
Bm
And the anchor told me
Em
If I prayed by the river
Am7
That the sweet sound of water
D7
Would always go with her


[Chorus]
     G         D/F#         Em
All across the havens to the waterfall
     F
They told me I would meet her there
     Am7
Inside those icy walls
    F
But how on earth in this universe
            C             D7
Can they forgive me of my pains
G                  A
For all across the havens
C                    C/B Am7      D7
I must stumble locked in chains


[Interlude]
G C7 G C7


[Verse]
G
Then the mother of mercy
C7
Showed me her stable
G
And told me you would be safe
C7
Safe in her cradle
Bm
And the waterfall opened
Em
And the water withdrew
Am7
Leaving me standing
D7
On a road leading through


[Chorus]
All across the havens... etc.

[Outro]

About the artist behind All Across The Havens:

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]
