   Elvis Costello - Couldn't call it Unexpected No.4


Standard Tuning.

Capo on 2.

C       Am         Em              G
I saw a girl who'd found her consolation
C            Am        Em                  G
 She said "One day my Prince of Peace will come"
Bm         F#m     Bm            F#m
 Above her head a portrait of her father
G           Bm             G              Bm              F#m
 The wilted favour that he gave her still fastened to the frame
G                 Bm        G             Bm
 "They've got his bones and everything he owns
G             C
 I've got his name"

(Repeat chord sequence throughout)
Well you can laugh at this sentimental story
 But in time you'll have to make amends
 The sudden chill where lovers doubt their immortality
 As the clouds cover the sky the evening ends
 Describing a picture of eyes finally closing
 As you sometimes glimpse terrible faces in the fire
 We'll I'm the lucky goon
 Who composed this tune
 from birds arranged on the high wire
Who on earth is tapping at the window?
 Does that face still linger at the pane?
 I saw you shiver though the room was like a furnace
 A shadow of regret across a young mother's face
 So toll the bell or rock the cradle
 Please don't let me fear anything I cannot explain
 I can't believe, I'll never believe in anything again
