Elton John – Levon tab

C               F                  C
Levon wears his war wound like a crown.
F                   C
He calls his child Jesus
G                    Am
`Cause he likes the name
       Em7               F                Dm7
And he sends him to the finest school in town

     C      F               C
And Levon, Levon likes his money
F                    C
He makes a lot they say
G               Am
Spend his days counting
      Em7           F   Dm7
In a garage by the motorway

Em7              Am                  F
He was born a pauper to a pawn on a Christmas day
         C                   Dm7                  C
When the New York Times said God is dead and the war's begun
F             C         Dm7
Alvin Tostig has a son today

         C       F                       C
And he shall be Levon and he shall be a good man
                 F                            C
And he shall be Levon in tradition with the family plan
                 F                       C
And he shall be Levon and he shall be a good man
F        C    G
He shall be Levon

C            F                  C
Levon sells cartoon balloons in town
F                    C
His family business thrives
G                            Am
Jesus blows up balloons all day
     Em7                  F           Dm7
Sits on the porch swing watching them fly

C              F               C
And Jesus, he wants to go to Venus
F                  C
Leaving Levon far behind
G                     Am
Take a balloon and go sailing
      Em7      F           Dm7
While Levon, Levon slowly dies

It's actually in F but I, and many, can't sing that high. Transpose it if you wish at http://logue.net/xp/
This is way better than that annoying version that is friggin' everywhere. Thanks also
