The Long Honeymoon
By Elvis Costello
>From the album: Imperial Bedroom

G+   = XX3221 (i have no idea what this chord is really called)
Gm   = XX0333
Edim = XX2323
Eb   = XX1343
Db   = XX3121
Dbm  = XX2120


INTRO:
Cm  Bb  Cm  Bb

Bb         Cm
All the bedroom lights go out 
       Bb
As the neighbourhood gets quiet 
Fm                                       Cm
Everything in heaven and earth is almost right 
              Cm                            Bb
But there's a wife whos wondering where her husband could be tonight 
             Fm                              Cm
And when the phone rang only once she took a dreadful fright 
       Cm                                Bb
Little things just seem to undermine her confidence in him
Fm                         Cm
He was late this time last week 
Cm                           Bb
Who can she turn to when the chance of coincidence is slim 
           Fm                        G+      G9  G
'Cause the baby isn't old enought to speak 

G              Edim Eb       
There's been a long honeymoon
Bb                  Edim Eb        Gm 
She thought too late and spoke too soon
           Ab                             Gm
There's no money back guarantee on future happiness 
               Edim Eb
There's been a long honeymoon 
Db                    Dbm                B
If he's out on a date then her life's in ruins 
    Bm                F#         Bm   A     G#m       Gm
She never thought her love could ever be as strong as this 

Bb      Cm
All the movies and the papers 
            Bb     
Feature the murders of lonely women 
      Fm                             Cm
If he isn't in by ten she'll call up her best friend 
Cm   
Why doesn't he come home 
             Bb
Why does her friends phone keep on ringing 
Fm                        G+ (?)
 . . . . Maybe she should just pretend 

(chorus)
