Elvis Costello
[Intro]
C   N.C.
 
[Verse 1]
N.C.       C
Farewell, okay
                  G7
You’ll be on your way
                  Am
You’ll be on your own now
             F7
But to my dismay
           C7
I can’t go on
                  G
After what you’ve done
          Am                         F
There are two words that sound like “pray”
                 Am                     F7
I’m not going to tell you which one I’m thinking of
F N.C.       C   F
  Farewell, okay
           C
Farewell, okay
 
[Verse 2]
G               C
I thought you’d change
                 G
And get a little humble
                Am      C    Am                           F
You strike your strange disposition like a drummer hits a cymbal
         Am            F
It rings on in the vicinity
                Am          F
From an instant thrill to infinity
         Am                  F7
And that doesn’t seem like a sin to me
F N.C.       C   F7
  Farewell, okay
           C
Farewell, okay
 
[Bridge]
        Am                 G            Am
Well, I ran my hand in the rhythm along the ballroom wall
Am
Felt the rumble of the bass through the entrance hall
                                     G
And the door flung open to a mascara cry
G
I can’t shake the sound of “How could you or why?”
Am
Can’t get the stain off my hands ever since
Am
From the fake marble pillar past a curtain of chintz
Am
A splatter of steps on a chalk floor pattern
  G                                        C E N.C.
A trim of black lace on a hem of red satin
 
[Verse 3]
N.C.        C
Goodbye, so long
                    G
There’s no right or wrong
              Am                                       F
This might be the final word I chance in the very last dance
      Am                       F
The appeal of the trumpet to a pearl of red laughter
   Am                             F
Of lipstick and kisses right here under the rafter
  Am
A fumble for Heaven in a thimble of draft
                         F
A seldom of Elvis in the velvet hereafter
N.C.       C   F
Farewell, okay
           C   F
Farewell, okay
           C     F
Farewell, okay, ooh
           C   F
Farewell, okay
 
[Outro]
E       C
