The Long Honeymoon  Elvis Costello

[Cm]    [Bb]    [Cm]    [Bb]                         
[Bb]All the bed[Cm]room lights go out
As the [Bb]neighbourhood gets quiet
[Fm]Everything in heaven and earth is almost [Cm]right
But there's a [Cm]wife whos wondering where her [Bb]husband could be tonight
And when the [Fm]phone rang only once she took a [Cm]dreadful fright
Little [Cm]things just seem to undermine her [Bb]confidence in him
[Fm]He was late this time last [Cm]week
[Cm]Who can she turn to when the [Bb]chance of coincidence is slim
'Cause the [Fm]baby isn't old enought to [G+]speak   [G9]    [G]
[G]There's been a [Edim]long [Eb]honeymoon
[Bb]She thought too late[Edim] and [Eb]spoke too [Gm]soon
There's no [Ab]money back guarantee on future [Gm]happiness
There's been a [Edim]long [Eb]honeymoon
[Db]If he's out on a date [Dbm]then her life's in [B]ruins
She [Bm]never thought her [F#]love could [Bm]ever [A]be as [G#m]strong as [Gm]this
[Bb]All the [Cm]movies and the papers
Feature the [Bb]murders of lonely women
If he [Fm]isn't in by ten she'll call up [Cm]her best friend
[Cm]Why doesn't he come home
Why does her [Bb]friends phone keep on ringing
Fm G+ (?)
. . . . Maybe she should just pretend
