Lady Samantha

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the Album Rare Masters

Ebm Gb Ab7 Bb

When the shrill winds are screaming
And the evening is still
Bbm       Db/Ab           Fm
Lady Samantha glides over the hill
       Eb                                 Ab7             Db
In a long satin dress that she wears every day
G                       Bbm      
Her home is the hillside, 
Ebm               F7
her bed is the grave

Bb                    D7/A
Lady Samantha glides like a tiger
Eb                         Bb
Over the hills with no one beside her
No one comes near
Eb                   Ab
They all live in fear
      F            Ab       Eb           Bb     F 
But Lady Samantha, she sheds only tears

The tales that I told round the fire every night
Are out of proportion and none of them right
She is harmless and empty of anything bad
For she once had something that most of you have
