Hey Ahab
Hey Ahab

Intro: C7(no3rd) F/C

C7(no3rd)
It's a constant struggle getting up that hill
                F/C     
There's a change of guard every day
                  C7(no3rd)
When you're clinging onto a driftwood boat
               F/C
You pray a great white whale might come your way

Ab
No freeway traffic in the frozen North
          F7
Just a chain link fence full of birds
                Ab
And when the harpoon's loaded in the cannon bay
                G7
You'll be rolling through the pages lost for words

Cm7               Cm7/Eb
Hey Ahab can you tell me where
              F7               Ab
I can catch a ride out of here
       Cm7       Cm7/Eb
Hey Ahab hoist that sail
              F7
You gotta stand up straight
               Ab               C7(no3rd)
When you ride that whale

C7(no3rd)
In a crumbling city we were trapped for days
                F/C
With a broken sun above the clouds
                  C7(no3rd)
Caught like Jonah forty fathoms down
               F/C
And a sign on the wall saying, "Hope Allowed"

Ab
All the cryptic symbols carved on bone
          F7
A far cry from a tattooed rose
                Ab
And when the boys in the rigging catch the wind

G7
We'll all weigh anchor and it's westward ho

Cm7               Cm7/Eb
Hey Ahab can you tell me where
              F7               Ab
I can catch a ride out of here
       Cm7       Cm7/Eb
Hey Ahab hoist that sail
              F7
You gotta stand up straight
               Ab
When you ride that whale

Cm7               Cm7/Eb
Hey Ahab can you tell me where
              F7               Ab
I can catch a ride out of here
       Cm7       Cm7/Eb
Hey Ahab hoist that sail
              F7
You gotta stand up straight
               Ab               C7(no3rd)
When you ride that whale

Ends on Cm

About the artist behind Hey Ahab:

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]
