Dsus2 - Bm3 - Cadd9 Dsus2 - Bm3 - G5 Dsus2 - Bm3 - Cadd9 Dsus2 - Bm3 - G5 Dsus2 Bm3 Cadd9 Dsus2 West of Chicago, the prairie begins, Dsus2 Bm3 Cadd9 G5 And all of the mad pandemonium ends. Dsus2 Bm3 Cadd9 Dsus2 The fleecing, the fighting, the grifting, the lies Cadd9 Bm3 G5 Dsus2 - Bm3 - Cadd9 Dsus2 - Bm3 - G5 Give way to the tall grass and infinite skies. Dsus2 Bm3 Cadd9 Dsus2 Eleanor lived there in a house on the plains Dsus2 Bm3 Cadd9 G5 Where the winter, the wheat fields, the corn fields and grains Dsus2 Bm3 Cadd9 Dsus2 Made its own kind of music that only she heard, Cadd9 Bm3 G5 Dsus2 - Bm3 - Cadd9 And each note for Eleanor had its own word. Bm7 F#m7 Eleanor's song whispers along G G/F# Em High in the breeze, the trees, endlessly Bm7 F#7 Filling the holes in heartbroken souls. G G/F# Em Cm7 Oh, oh, tell me more, Dsus2 - D6sus2 - Cm7 Please, Eleanor, Dsus2 - Bm3 - Cadd9 Dsus2 - Bm3 - G5 Sweet Eleanor.

She knew no religion but she didn't care.
The earth was her church and her song was a prayer.
She sang to the starlight, the moon and the sun,
And under the thunderclouds timpani drum.

Sometimes late at night when the trees are in motion,
The fields are alive and wild as the ocean.
Sending a chill from my head to my toes
If I just stay still and listen real close.

Eleanor's song whispers along
High in the breeze, the trees, endlessly
Filling the holes in heartbroken souls.
Oh, oh, tell me more,

        Dsus2 - D6sus2 - Cm7
Please, Eleanor,
      Dsus2 - D6sus2 - Cm7
Sweet Eleanor.
      Dsus2 - Bm3 - Cadd9   Dsus2 - Bm3 - G5
Sweet Eleanor.


Dsus2 - Bm3 - Cadd9   Em7/B   Em7b5/Bb   D
