Tower of Babel- Elton John from the album Captain Fantastic and the brown dirty cowboy (1975)

If you are also a piano player, the song's sound will be better. But you must sing too!

I VERSE

Em
Snow, 
   C
cement
     F          G 
and ivory young towers
    F              C 
Someone called us Babylon
            F 
Those hungry hunters 
                 G
Tracking down the hours

Eb                           Bb
But where were all your shoulders when we cried 
                        Fm
Were the darlings on the sideline

Cm 
Dreaming up such cherished lies 
      Ab
To whisper in your ear  
           F              F
before you die

CHORUS
     Eb                     
It's party time for the guys 
    Ab          Bb
in the tower of Babel
  Cm           Ab 
Sodom meet Gomorrah, 
  Eb       Bb
Cain meet Abel
       Fm 
Have a ball y'all 
 Fm
See the letches crawl 
                           Cm
With the call girls under the table 
              Ab
Watch them dig their graves 
           Eb            Bb
`Cause Jesus don't save the guys 
         Fm              Ab
In the tower of Babel 
                         Ab
Watch them dig their graves 
             Eb              Bb
`Cause Jesus don't save the guys 
                   Fm         Eb
In the tower of Babel, no no no

II VERSE
   Em
Junk, 
   C 
angel, 
    F                G
this closet's always stacked 
    F                C
The dealers in the basement 
             F
Filling your prescription 
             G
For a brand new heart attack 
        Eb                             Bb
But where were all your shoulders when we cried 
               Fm
Were the doctors in attendance 
           Cm
Saying how they felt so sick inside 
                               Ab
Or was it just the scalpel blade that lied.

ENJOY THIS. DON'T MEAN THE NOTES, BUT PAUSES BETWEEN THEM.          RAY
TRY ALSO "LIVE LIKE HORSES" IT'S MINE.

About the artist behind Tower Of Babel:

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]
