Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the Album The One
C       Fm/C  Db/Ab  Eb+9/Bb
C F G C The church bells ring out morning glory
F G C When summer bends to the winter's rage
Am F G CEmily walks through the cemetery
Am F G C F C Passed a dog in an unmarked grave
C F G CThe old girl hobbles, nylons sagging
F G C Talks to her sisters in the ground
Am F G CI saw a lie in the mirror this morning
Am F G Am G/BI heard a prophesy all around
F/C C Fm/CAnd Emily they come and go
Db/Ab Eb/Bb F6 The shadows and the distant sounds
F/C C Fm/CBut Emily don't be afraid
Db/Ab Eb/Bb F6 When the weight of angels weighs you down
Emily prays to a faded hero In a little frame clutched to her gown Hears the voice of promise in his memory Tonight's the night they let the ladder down In a cage sits a gold canary By a wicker chair and a rosewood loom As a soul ascends abord the evening Canary sings to an empty room
