Japanese hands chords

Elton John


Intro: Eb / Bb /Ab Bb / / / Eb / Bb /Ab Bb / / / Eb/G F/G Outside I can hear the fireworks beyond the paper walls. Eb/G F/G Dm Where the symbols painted black and white - run together when the rain falls. Eb/G F/G And the wind chimes across Kyoto each time the earth moves. Eb/G F/G Dm Was it the quake that shook me or was it - something to do with you? Chorus: Eb F Eb F And the hot wind heats the bamboo blinds. And your almond eyes always shine. Bb Eb/G Sitting cool behind your painted fan. Db Eb All the secrets of the east conceal the beauty and the beast. Bb Eb F Bb For tender is the man - in her Japanese hands. Eb/G F/G Flesh on silk looks different than on a cotton sheet back home. Eb/G F/G Dm Where no one wears their hair like yours beneath those oriental combs. Eb/G F/G And with your thirsty fingers running up and down my spine, Eb/G F/G Dm You forget the western woman when you're sleeping on Kyoto time. {Repreat Chorus} Bb And the sky explodes. And the moon grows cold. Eb/Bb Bb To the distant sound of drums. Bb Ab And the sky explodes. And the moon grows cold. Cm F As the dragons on the mainland wait to heat the sun. Eb/Bb F/Bb Bb Eb/Bb F/Bb Bb CODA: In her Japanese hands. In her Japanese hands.
