Veronica Tabs

(Version #1)
Elvis Costello
Veronica- Elvis Costell0

   C    (F)                C    (F)

Verse 1:
      C             F            C        G
Is it all in that pretty little head of yours?
          C            F           C      G
What goes on in that place in the dark?
        C              F          C           G
Well I used to know a girl and I would have sworn
           F         G     C
That her name was Veronica
          C              F        C           G
Well she used to have a carefree mind of her own
        C        F          C     G
And a delicate look in her eye
       C        F            C        G
These days I'm afraid she's not even shure
        F         G     C
If her name is Veronica

          Dm                  Dm7
Do you suppose, that waiting hands on eyes
  Dm        G
Veronica's gone to hide?
     Dm                Dm7
And all the time she laughs at those
      Dm                 G
Who shout her name and steal her clothes
   F          D7         G  G7  Em7  G6  -  G  G7  Em7  G6
Veronica - Veronica - Veronica

    G  G7  Em7  G6

Verse 2:
          C        F           C     G
Did the days drag by? Did the favor wane?
         C            F            C      G
Did he roam down the town all the time?
          C            F              C          G
Will you wake from a dream, with the wolf at the door
          F         G       C
Reaching out for Veronica?
         C       F          C    G
Well it was all sixty-five years ago
          C              F                C     G
When the world was the street where she lived
       C          F          C           G
And a young man sailed on a ship in the sea
        F            G      C
With a picture of Veronica

        Am            Fm
On the "Empress of India"
            Bb                       C
And as she closed her eyes upon the world
      Am                                  Fm
And picked upon the bones of last week's news
      Bb                      C
She spoke his name out loud again

Repeat Chorus

Verse 3
    C     F            C         G
Veronica sits in her favourite chair
         C         F         C     G
And she sits very quiet and still
          C        F              C         G
And they call her name that they never get right
             F            G         C
And if they don't then nobody else will
          C              F        C          G
But she used to have a carefree mind of her own
       C        F          C   G
With devilish look in her eye
         C               F     C       G
Saying "You can call me anything you like
        F         G       C
But my name is Veronica"

Repeat Chorus
