Sinéad O'Connor tabs for Sacrifice

Guitar tabs

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".
