Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

Inch By Inch  Elvis Costello

[G]    [Bm] You can take a powder you can take a drink
[G]    [Bm]You can keep the shrink and the kitchen sink
[Bm]Write my name in [Bm/A]heaven in [Bm/G]invisible i[Bm/F#]nk
[Bm/F#]      [F#m]I just woke up from dreaming,[Bm]    [F#m] I think
*verse 2*

[G]   [Bm]You can take me over you can give me a lip

[G]   [Bm]You can take me under you can give me the slip
[Bm]Take off every[Bm/A]thing or t[Bm/G]ear me off a [Bm/F#]strip
[F#m]Like a lady in the camber and another in the clip

[G]Don't move a m[Em]uscle baby

[Bm]Don't even [Em]flinch
You can [Bm]miss me [Bm/A]by a m[Bm/G]ile
[Bm/F#]Or just [Em]inch by [Bm]inch
Inch by [G]inch, Inch by inch
[Em]You can pull me [F#m]up again [Bm]inch by inch
Inch by [G]inch, as pulses race
I long to [Em]see that look [F#m]upon your [Bm]face  [G]   [Bm]
*verse 3 same as verse 2*
You can take me outside you can take me apart
You can take me upstairs you can take me to heart
You made me love you when you thought you were smart
Don't try to stop me when you told me to start

*same as other chorus*
Don't move a muscle baby
Don't even flinch
You can miss me by a mile
Or just inch by inch

Inch by inch, Inch by inch
You can pull me up again inch by inch
Inch by inch, as pulses race
I long to see that look upon your face

Em F#m Bm (fade)
I long to see that look upon your face
