Gulliver

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the album Empty Sky

Gm

                                 D/F                           Eb
Gulliver's gone to the final command of his master
      F                      Bb                                          Ab
His watery eyes had washed all the hills with his laughter
             Bb                                                                            Ab                   
And the seasons can change all the light from the grey to the dim
             Gm                               F
But the light in his eyes will see no more bright
            Eb                                    D
As the sheep that he locked in the pen


           G                                 F/G
There's four feet of ground in front of the barn
          C/G                                          G            C/G   
That's sun baked and rain soaked and part of the farm
        G                            F/G
But now it lies empty so cold and so bare
 C/G                            G                           Gm
Gulliver's gone but his memory lies there



By passing the doors of his life was a stage I remember
And in later years he would cease to bare teeth to a stranger
For sentiment touched him as Cyclamen holds him
And later men came from the town
Who said clear the child this won't take a while
And Gulliver's gone with the dawn
