Amazes Me

Music by Elton John

Eb     G   Ab   Eb Bb

E
You're a cool little one
G
My dark southern breeze
Ab
Sweeps through my fingers
                        Eb
And it amazes me

 


Dixie shadowland
          G
Your envy shelters me
Ab
Lay down your burden
                         Eb
Mystery of ebony

 

            Ab       Eb
And it amazes me
                      Bb
Oh it amazes me
                     Ab        Ab7                 Eb
Maybe the heat babe could be this tune
      Ab      Eb   G7
It amazes me
     Eb       Bb    Ab
It amazes me
          /G       /F   Eb                Bb                  Ab
What drives me crazy is that big fat yellow moon

 

Eb 
Look up that pale light
G
Well she's waking the trees
      Ab
I'm drifting in your hoodoo
                        Eb       
And it amazes me

That magnolia state
G
Got a hold on me
   Ab
I got no blues to preach
                              Eb
Just Mississippi company

Db                    Ab
Ain't no magic potion
      Eb                  Bb
No gri-gri on her side
          Db                Ab
She's bound to my salvation
F
Sweet little mama
                                            Bb
Take me down by the river tonight
             Ab       Eb
And it amazes me
