Music by Elton John
Lyrics by Bernie Taupin
Available on the Album The One
C       Fm/C  C#/Ab  Eb+9/Bb
C                        F                G       C 
The church bells ring out morning glory
                    F                    G            C    
When summer bends to the winter's rage
Am    F                           G     C
Emily walks through the cemetery
Am        F             G               C        F  C 
Passed a dog in an unmarked grave
C                F            G        C
The old girl hobbles, nylons sagging
                   F           G      C            
Talks to her sisters in the ground
Am      F            G                     C
I saw a lie in the mirror this morning
Am         F              G        Am   G/B
I heard a prophesy all around
      F C                          Fm/C
And Emily they come and go
           C#/Ab     Eb                        F6   
The shadows     and the distant sounds
    F   C                  Fm/C
But Emily don't be afraid
                       C#/Ab  Eb                        F6 
When the weight of angels weighs you down
Emily prays to a faded hero
In a little frame clutched to her gown
Hears the voice of promise in his memory
Tonight's the night they let the ladder down
In a cage sits a gold canary
By a wicker chair and a rosewood loom
As a soul ascends abord the evening
Canary sings to an empty room
Abmaj7  C#/Ab
