Lifes an Elevator

T Rex – Life’s An Elevator

There are two guitars in this, so grab your friend down below or whatever šŸ˜€
Not 100% sure this is absolutely correctly timed and all that, but to be frank; I
care less. It’s better than having nothing at all. And I’m sure you’ll be able to figure it
if this doesn’t help.

Lyrics w/ chords

Gm/Gm10
Sat with a cat on your head alone at last
Gm/Gm10
You cry with a sigh resurrecting all your past

Eb
Life’s an elevator
C
It goes up and down
Eb
Life’s an elevator
C
Can’t you dig the sound?

Gm/Gm10
Swift is the kill shadows fill the empty walls
Gm/Gm10
Wild is the word that engulfs the sacred halls

Eb
Life’s an elevator
C
It goes up and down
Eb
Life’s an elevator
C
Can’t you dig the sound?

Gm/Gm10
Scenes from your past spread before the flaming dawn
Gm/Gm10
Have faith in the hearts of the world they’re rocking on

Eb
Life’s an elevator
C
It goes up and down
Eb
Life’s an elevator
C
Can’t you dig the sound?

There are some minor variations through-out the song,
but none you won’t hear clearly.
Chorus is played two times last time around, and then it’s the
intro/verse-part twice and some harmonics.
