------------
Elvis Costello, Clive Langer
(P) 1983

The Robert Wyatt version from 1982 is very much the same, only shorter.
The key is transposed two and a half tones up, his version is in Am.

Lyrics are from the _Punch the Clock_ inner sleeve

Am | C | D | D |


Em      Em/D#
Is it worth it
Em/D         C#dim                  D
A new winter coat and shoes for the wife
Dm            Cm7                 D
And a bicycle on the boy's birthday
                            G
It's just a rumour that was spread around town
C                D
By the women and children
              G
Soon we'll be shipbuilding


Em     Em/D#
Well I ask you
Em/D          C#dim                        D
The boy said "Dad they're going to make me to task
Dm          Cm7             D
But I'll be back by christmas"
                            G
It's just a rumour that was spread around town
Cmaj7              D
Somebody said that someone got filled in
Cmaj7           D
For saying that people get killed in
Cmaj7         D                G
The result of this shipbuilding
nc           G7
With all the will in the world
           Eb6
Diving for dear life
D                G
When we could be diving for pearls

Em               Em/D#            Em/D            C#dim

D                Dm              Cm7

D                           G
It's just a rumour that was spread around town
Cmaj7           D
A telegram or a picture postcard
Cmaj7                      D
Within weeks they'll be re-opening the shipyards
Cmaj7             D
And notifying the next of kin
G
Once again
               G7
It's all we're skilled in
           Eb6         D           G
We will be shipbuilding
             Gm
With all the will in the world
           Eb6          D        D        D
Diving for dear life
D                Em
When we could be diving for pearls
Em/D#            Em/D            C#dim

D                Dm              Cm7          D

G                Cmaj7           D            Cmaj7

D                Cmaj7           D            G

               G7
It's all we're skilled in
           Eb6         D           G
We will be shipbuilding
             Gm
With all the will in the world
           Eb6          D        D        D
Diving for dear life
D                D                D        D
When we could be diving for pearls
D                D                D        D
When we could be diving for pearls
D                   Em
When we could be diving for pearls
