Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Clowntime Is Over  Elvis Costello

[C]Tears on your [F]blackmail
[Am]Written to [Dm]ransom
[C]A point of the [F]fingernail
[Am]Says that he's [Dm]handsome
[C]Clowntime is [F]over
[Ab]Time to take [F]cover
[C]While others just [F]talk and talk
[Am]Somebody's [Dm]watching where the others don't [G]walk
[G]Clowntime is over[C]
A voice in the shadows
Says that his men know
He don't step back as expected
He's otherwise and unprotected

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


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