Clowntime Is Over
(Elvis Costello from the album "Get Happy!" - Words and Music by Elvis
Costello)
Transcribed by D. W. Bennett

Intro: C    F    C   Csus4 Ab      G
C             F
Tears on your blackmail
Am         Dm
Written to ransom
C              F
A point of the fingernail
Am             Dm
Says that he's handsome
C            F
Clowntime is over
Ab           F
Time to take cover
C                 F
While others just talk and talk
Am         Dm                              G
Somebody's watching where the others don't walk
G                C
Clowntime is over

A voice in the shadows
Says that his men know
He don't step back as expected
He's otherwise and unprotected

Chorus
C          F
Almost too good to be true
Am          Dm
Who do you? why do you? what do you do?
C                 F
While everybody's hiding under covers
Am                        Dm    Dm/E    Dm/F   G
Who's making lover's lane safe again for lovers?

Chorus

I like to end with the intro followed by a sustained C12 (open C chord with a
high G added) chord.
