Pouring Water On A Drowning Man  Elvis Costello























[C]And then you put me d[C]own    [F]      [C]
[C]I guess[F] I mis[C]sed my calling
[C]I should             [Am]
have been a clown
[E7]How much more
[E7]How much [Am]more c[G]an   [F]
I stand
[C]You're pouring water
[F]On a drowning               [C]
[man]                                     
You put me on the right track
And then you put me down
You stab me in
the back
Everytime I turn around

Criticize my lovin'
When I'm doing the
very best I can
You're pouring water
On a drowning man

Chorus:

N.C.
[Dm]You're pouring water
On a [G]drowning [C]man

[Dm]You treat me like
The [G]fool that I[Am] am
[Am]You bet that I like everything you do
Put [G]salt in my [C]
wounds
It's [F]sad but it's [G]true


You warm me with your
kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I've
never been told
Won't you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You're
pouring water
On a drowning man

Chorus
You're pouring water
On a drowning
[man]You treat me like
The fool that I am
You bet that I like everything you
do
Put salt in my wounds
It's sad but it's true

You warm me with your
kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I've
never been told
Won't you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You're
pouring water
On a poor drowning man
[C]I got tears in my [F]
eyes
[F]Oh, I'm a drowning[C] man
[C]I got             [F]
tears in my eyes
[C]You're pouring water
[F]On a drowing man
[C]You're pouring
water
[F]On a poor drowning man
[C]fade out
