Sweat It Out

Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin

E+    E    Dm7+6   Dm7    E
Am    F
Am    F
Dm7    E+     E    Fsus4    F    B7    E7

No ceiling on hard living

Peace keepers keep on breathing
Can't deny eye for eye

It's open season

Dictate to my reason

She devils ruling Britain
Hey girl stick it in your purse

Call it treason

Band aids on dead doorways
No heroes in the Bat Cave
Don't give me Tears For Fears
Give me tears of rage

Fires burn with black smoke
Oil slicks put us on the ropes
Man it's hard to handle
When the bank's broke

Dm7    E+     E    Fsus4    F    B7    E7

Dm7          Am                  G
Don't kow-tow, don't bow down
              C             F      C        F  C
Loosen up, get the lead out
Dm7       Am
Backs up let them shout
G            C
Backs up sweat it out
                F        C      F             C
When your back's up, sweat it out
F        C    Dm7  E7  Am       
Backs up, sweat it out

Hope froze in the cold weather
No ice on a greasy river
Liberty and John Doe
Stand and Shiver
War waits when the lines form
The baby sitter in a uniform
Knocking down your door
For your rice and corn
