Clowntime Is Over

Elvis Costello

 CF
 Tears on your blackmail
 AmDm
 Written to ransom
 CF
 A point of the fingernail
 AmDm
 Says that he's handsome
 CF
 Clowntime is over
 AbF
 Time to take cover
 CF
 While others just talk and talk
 AmDmG
 Somebody's watching where the others don't walk
 GC
 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
 CF
 Almost too good to be true
 AmDm
 Who do you? why do you? what do you do?
 CF
 While everybody's hiding under covers
 AmDmDm/EDm/FG
 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.
