Georgie and Her Rival  Elvis Costello



[Cm] [F] [Gmaj7]Georgie[G] grew to hate her name
It so[C]unded [D]
like a tiny man
[Gmaj7]And the[G] one she had said "I Can't see you
[C] But I'll [G]cal[D/Fis]l you, whe[C/E]never I can!
Sometimes th[G]e phone would ring,
When [D] [C]
she was half asleep
A voice would drag her d[G]own
With [D]its sugg[C]estions
Though she [G]
often felt cheated,
[Eb]She never f[F]elt cheap
[Am]Well heaven
know what fills the heart
[Bb]And makes you feel [Dm]so alive
[C]It's impossible to t[Em]ear apart
[Eb] [F] Georgie and her rival
[Gmaj7]It was [G]half-past february
[C] And he hadn'[D]t called since New Year's day
[Gmaj7]Maybe [G]
he'd found another woman
To s[C]ay [G] [D/Fis] [C/E]
those word no chapel girl should say
Her mother would [G]
And al[D]ways keep her tal[C]king
Sh[G]e'd try to be polite
Ma[D]king fa[C]ces
[G]But somewhere in the back of her mind
[Eb]Her rival was [F]
[Am]Well heaven know what fills the heart
[Bb] [Dm] And makes you feel so alive
[C]It's impossible to t[Em]ear
Ge[Eb]orgie and her ri[F]val
[Bm]Her [G]
rival would always wait
[Em]'Til the eighth or [F#]
nineth bell
[Bm]He'd be desperate an[G]yway and
as well
She al[Dm]ways like to [Dm7] [Dm6] [G]
hurt him to prove he was prepared
To l[Dm]ove [Dm7] [Dm6]
her anyway that she wanted
[Dm6/G]So she could [G] [Eb] [F]
tell - which she preferred
[Gmaj7]He sat [G]up with his adressbook
[C] Trying to think[D] what mood he's in
[Gmaj7]His fin[G]ger
traced past Georgie's name
To so[C]meone who [G] [D]
needed less persuading
He d[C]idn't hear [D] [G]
through her disguise
He d[C]idn't leave her [G]in a [D]
Just l[C]ike the promise t[D]hat he l[G]eft
On[C] her machine that [G]always[D] made her [C]
The radio plays a lo[G]ver's [D] [C]
"The number you [G] [D] [C]
have dialed has been re-directed"
Now she puts [G]
him on the speaker-phone
Wh[Eb]enever she has com[F]pany
[Am]Well heaven know what fills the heart
[Bb]And makes [Dm]
you feel so alive
[C]It's impossible to t[Em]ear apart
[Eb]Georgie and her [F]rival
