Someone's Final Song

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the Album Blue Moves


Gb - Db - F7/C - Bbm - Ebm/Gb - Db/Ab - Ab

He died when the house was empty
When the maid had gone
Eb/G            F/A   G/B
He put a pen to paper for one final song
He wrote
 G7/C Cm Ebm       Fm/Bb Ebm
Oh babe, it's the only way
Bb          Bb/A              Gm  Bb/F
I know it's wrong but I can't stand
Gmb5+6           Bb/F                  Eb/G    F7/A    Eb/Bb  Bb
To go on living, to go on living, living life this way

And I don't know what the time is
Or what the next line is
Or how you're going to take the news
But if I had my life again
I wouldn't change a thing
I'd let nobody, I'd let nobody
Stand inside my shoes

Db  Dbmaj7             Bbm        A+
Oh, something's gotten hold of me
Ebm          Bbm/Db          Ab7/C     Gb Ab7
This home is not the home it used to be
Db                      Abm9           Db9
I've gathered dust like the dying flowers
Gb                    Gbm    Db
And I've drunk myself sober
Ebm7  Ab7/Db    Gb    Db
After hours and hours
