'All that I'm Allowed'

Intro:       C#   (C A# G# F# D# C)       B/C#   (A# G# F# C# D# G#)
               C#   (C A# G# F# D# C)       B/C#   (A# G# F# C# D# G#)

Verse 1:               C#                           Ab/C#    
             Breaking down never seems to be that hard.  
                        B/C#             F#/C#
             Falling short is always in the cards.
                              C#                  Ab/C#
             Among the road, sun rising up my back,
                      B/C#                   F#/C#
             Lost it all somewhere between the cracks.
                          Ebm                    Ab
             I always hoped that I'd do better.
                                    Ebm              Ab
             That I'd come out on top for once.
                       Am                      Bbm
             We all get what we're delivered.
                              Ebm             Ab
             Then there are the lucky ones.

C#
Chorus:  And I've got all that I'm allowed.  
                   C#/C   C#/A#
              It'll do for me.

I'm thankful now.
                     C#/G#   F#
              The walls get higher everyday.
                           Ab          C#/A#
              The barriers get in the way,
                            Eb                                        C#
              But I see hope in every cloud, and I'm thankful,
              Ab/C#     B/C#                F#
              Thankful.  I'm thankful, so thankful;  
                    Ebm                   B        Ab    C#
              I'm thankful I've got all that I'm allowed.

Verse 2:              C#                          Ab/C#
              Leaving town gets to feel just like a job.  
                        B/C#                F#/C#
              My desire never winds up on top.
                              C#               Ab/C#
              I can't say now I didn't want to moon.
                             B/C#
              It's out of reach:
                                    F#/C#
              Somewhere beyond this room.
                           Ebm                    Ab
              I always hoped that I'd do better,
                                    Ebm               Ab
              That I'd come out on top for once.
                         Am                     Bbm
              We all get what we're delivered,
                               Ebm             Ab
              Then there are the lucky ones.

-Repeat chorus-

Bridge:                   B                            F#
            I've always tried to make things clear.
                       A               E            F#
            Then I watched as progress stalled.
                     B                          F#
            I only hope I'm standing here
                        F#/F  Ebm                 Ab
            When heaven finally comes to call.

-Repeat chorus-

About the artist behind All That Im Allowed:

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]
