Inch By Inch

Elvis Costello

 GBm
      You can take a powder you can take a drink

 GBm
     You can keep the shrink and the kitchen sink

 BmBm/ABm/GBm/F#
 Write my name in heaven in invisible ink

 Bm/F#F#mBmF#m
       I just woke up from dreaming,     I think

*verse 2*

 GBm
    You can take me over you can give me a lip

 GBm
    You can take me under you can give me the slip

 BmBm/ABm/GBm/F#
 Take off everything or tear me off a strip

 F#m
 Like a lady in the camber and another in the clip

*chorus*

 GEm
 Don't move a muscle baby

 BmEm
 Don't even flinch

 BmBm/ABm/G
You can miss me by a mile

 Bm/F#EmBm
 Or just inch by inch

 G
Inch by inch, Inch by inch

 EmF#mBm
 You can pull me up again inch by inch

 G
Inch by inch, as pulses race

 EmF#mBmGBm
I long to see that look upon your face      

*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


Bm Bm/A Bm/F# Em F#m G
