                Here's Elvis Costello's "The Only Flame in Town".
This transcription is based on the live version of the Ryko
reissue of "Goodbye Cruel World", but it works well witht the
studio version too, except in someplace they use the ending
chords in the middle and there are some walk ups - enjoy.


Intro E

*verse 1*
E              F#m     
I know a girl, got my mind in a mess

G#m                   A             G#m  F#m
I never heard her say goodnight and God bless

      B                         E
She's not the only flame in town

E    F#m    G#m

*verse 2 - same except were noted*
And when we're alone we never quarrel
I'm miles away, now here's the moral
                                E    E7
She's not the only flame in town

*chorus*

A      B            G#m          C#m
She's not the only flame in town

D                  
She's got to stop thinking that I'm

A                         E
Carrying this torch around

*verse 3 - same as verse 1*
He struck a match and lit up her face
We should have struck a match girl 
To burn down the whole place
Now you're not the only flame in town

*verse 4 - same as verse 2*
But you blew hot and cold
Turnmy heart to a cinder
And with each passing day
You'd be less tender and more tinder
Now you're not the only flame in the town



*chorus - same*
She's not the only flame in town
She's got to stop thinking that I'm
Carrying this torch around

*verse 5 -same as verse 1 except where noted*
Thought I saw your face in the fire
But its so hard to remember
Even an inferno can cool down to an ember
Now you're not the only flame


E   F#m    G#m                   E     F#m   G#m
             You're not the only flame

G#m                 E       F#m    G#m
You're not the only flame in town
