Here's Til Tuesday's "The Other End of the Telescope" written by
Amiee Mann and Elvis Costello.  Capo at the 3rd fret.  All the
chords are basic ones, so no need for a chart - sometimes though,
they add the high G on the E string to the C chord -->  x32013
instead of x32010.  Also, the C/G is 3x2013.

Intro C
C        G          D         G
Shall we agree that just this once

    Em              D
I'm gonna change my life

C         G       D    G   Em              F
Until its just as tiny or important as you like

       C              G      D            C
And in time, we won't even recall that we spoke

                  G      D         C
Words that turned out to as big as smoke

     Em       D              G
Like smoke disappears in the air

        C      Em        D          G
There's always something smoldering somewhere


*chorus*
  D                    C             G
I know it don't make a difference to you

    D                 C             G
But Oh it sure made a difference to me

       Em     D          C          G
You'll see me off in the distance I hope

             Am
At the other end

             C   D      C/G
At the other end of the telescope

*same as first verse except leave out F - stay on Em in the second
line*

There was a time not long ago I dreamt the world was flat
All the colors bled away and that was that
And in time, I could only believe in one thing
The sky was just phorphorus stars hung on a string
And you swore that they'd always be mine
When you can pull them down anytime

*same as other chorus*
I know it don't make a difference to you
But Oh it sure made a difference to me
You'll see me off in the distance I hope
At the other end
At the other end of the telescope

*bridge*

D                    C           G
There there baby now don't say a word

D                    C           G
Lie down baby your vision is blurred

     Em      D         C            G
your head is sore from all of that thinking

  Em
I don't want to hurt you now

    Am             C
But I think you're sinking

   Am
(I think you're sinking)

*same as first verse except where noted*
Your half-naked ambition and your half out of your mind
And though your wristwatch always works
Your necktie never fits
Now its so hard to pick the reciever up and when I call
I never noticed you could be so small
The answer was under your nose
        C        D      G
But the question never arose

  D                      C           G
I know it don't make a difference to you

    D                     C          G
But Oh it sure made a difference to me

         Em      D          C          G
When you find me here at the end of my rope

         Em       D           C        G
When the head and heart of it finally elope

        Em     D          C          G     Em   D
You can see us off in the distance I hope

             Am
At the other end


             C   D       C/G         C      G
At the other end of the telescope
