Don’t Let the Sun Go Down on Me – Lyrics with Chords

Verse

G                                                     F          C    –    Cadd4   –  C
I can’t light, no more of your darkness
F                                                              G                   G7
All my pictures, seem to fade to black and white
G                                                                F            C   –   Cadd4    –   C
I’m growing tired, and time stands still before me
F                                                          G                   G7
Frozen here, on the ladder of my life
G                                                         F            C   –   Cadd4    –   C
It’s too late, to save myself from falling
F                                                                G                   G7
I took a chance and changed your way of life
G                                                          F            C   –   Cadd4    –   C
But you misread, my meaning when I met you
F                                                          C                      G             G7
Closed the door, and left me blind by the light Ohhh

Chorus

C                                                      Cadd4
Don’t let the sun go down on me
Am                                                                         D
Although I search myself, it’s always someone else I see
C                                                              F     G                     C      G7
I’d just allow a fragment of your life to wander free yea
F                                          F                    Dm                G               C
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me

Verse

G                                           F            C   –   Cadd4    –   C
I can’t find, oh, the right romantic line
F                                                             G             G7
But see me once, and see the way I feel
G                                                                                   F                  C   –   Cadd4    –   C
Don’t discard me, just because you think I mean you harm
F                                                                                       C                   G         G7
But these cuts I have, oh they need love to help them heal Oh

Chorus (x2)

C                                                       Cadd4
Don’t let the sun go down on me
Am                                                                      D
Although I search myself, it’s always someone else I see
C                                                                F     G                     C      G7
I’d just allow a fragment of your life to wander free yea
F                                         F                    Dm                G               C
But losing everything is like the sun going down on me
