Pouring Water On A Drowning Man

Elvis Costello

 CCFC
 And then you put me down           
 CFC
 I guess I missed my calling
 CAm
 I should              
have been a clown
 E7
 How much more
 E7AmGF
 How much more can    
I stand
 C
 You're pouring water
 FC
 On a drowning                
 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
 GC
On a drowning man

 Dm
 You treat me like
 GAm
The fool that I am
 Am
 You bet that I like everything you do
 GC
Put salt in my  
wounds
 FG
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 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
 CF
 I got tears in my  
eyes
 FC
 Oh, I'm a drowning man
 CF
 I got              
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
