When I think of those East

lights,

muggy 
 
nights
 
The

curtains drawn in the

little room do

Gb 
Prima Donna lord you really  
Ab 
should have been there
Gb 
Sitting like a princess  
Ab 
perched in her  
Db 
electric 
 
chair
 
And it’s
Dbm 
one more beer and I don’t hear you  
Bb7 
anymore
 
We’ve
Db 
all gone crazy lately
 
My  
Bb/D 
friends out there rolling round the basement
Ab/Eb 
floor  
Eb

And someone saved my  
Ab/C 
life tonight  
Bbm

Db 
You almost had your  
Ab/C 
hooks in me  
Bbm 
didn’t you dear
 
You  
Ab/C 
nearly  
Dbmaj7 
had me roped and  
Ab/C 
tied
Db 
Altar-bound, 
 
 
Bb/D 
hypnotized
 
Sweet  
Ab/Eb 
freedom whispered in my ear
 
You’re a  
Bb7/F 
butterfly
 
And  
Db 
butterflies are free to fly
Bb/D 
Fly 
 
away,
Ab/E 
high away,  
C7 
bye

I never realized the passing hours of evening showers

A slip noose hanging in my darkest dreams
I’m strangled by your haunted social scene
Just a pawn out-played by a dominating queen
It’s four o’clock in the morning
Damn it listen to me good
I’m sleeping with myself tonight
Saved in time, thank God my music’s still alive

 
Bbm 
And I would have walked head on into the  
Ab/C 
deep end of the river
Fm7 
Clinging to your stocks and bonds
 
Paying your  
Db/Ab 
H.P. demands forever
Bbm 
They’re coming in the morning with a  
Ab/C 
truck to take me home
Fm7 
Someone saved my life tonight,  
Db/Ab 
someone saved my life tonight
Fm7 
Someone saved my life tonight,  
Db/Ab 
someone saved my life tonight
Fm7 
Someone saved my life tonight
 
So  
Db/Ab 
save your strength and run the field you  
Bb7 
play 
 
alone

Someone saved, someone saved, someone saved my life tonight

  1. Thanks!

  2. I think the Fm7 in the bridge should actually be an Eb/F.

  3. Elton due to issues with his voice, now performs it in Key of F
