NOTES:

This song is written by Mr. Elton John and it's called "Sacrifice". I'd 
never recognized this song until an Irish girl named Sinead O'Connor 
sang it in her own special version. 

In this version the song is played on a synthesizer, Key Eb, so it may 
be easier for you to capo on the 3rd Fret, although I have guitarified some 
parts. The lyrics aren't placed exactly under the correspondending 
notes, so you better listen to the song - you'll find it on: 

"Two rooms - Celebrating the songs of Elton John and Bernie Taupin".
