Here are a few more chord charts (not really TAB after all)
for some Elvis Costello songs.
Don't forget to use a single spaced font for this!
Please let me know if there are any errors, corrections, and so on.
Chords from the songbook, mostly
By Elvis Costello
C#dim = XX2323
I've been talking to the wall and it's been answering me
Oh darling how I miss you
I'm just the mere shadow of my former selfishness
I crave the silhouette of your kiss
With only the blue light of the TV on
Lip reading threats and false alarms
There's a boy somewhere holding hands with himself
And a girl in a window on the Reeperbarn
C C#dim G B
Whenever I put my foot in my mouth and you begin to doubt
That it's you that I'm dreaming about
Do I have to draw you a diagram?
C#dim G Am Em
All I ever want is just to fall into your human hands
With the kings and queens of the dance hall craze
Checkmate in three moves in your heyday
But the girls don't listen to your line anymore
Now you're part of someone else
G D Em
On the factory floor and you still say "Wheres the action?"
Now you manufacture happiness
And get sold on the cheap for someone's satisfaction
All you toy soldiers and scaremongers
Are you living in this world sometimes I wonder
C G Am7 D
In between saying you've seen too much and saying you've seen it all
Tighter and tighter I hold you tightly
You know I love you more than slightly
G Am7 D
Although I've never said it like this before
