Pony St.  Elvis Costello

The perfect introduction to an album like Brutal Youth, which I describe as all of
EC&A's previous work thrown into a blender to create a fantastic mix.
Intro: D Dsus4 D(5x)
[G]She lives on Pony Street
[G]And they should scatter flowers at her f[C]eet
But [D]when they come [C]calling I [G]think it's appalling
They're [Am]sober and [D]they're p[G]olite
They're [D]deeply respe[C]ctful when [G]I would expect them
To k[Am]eep her out all night[D]
[G]That little martinet
[G]Will get her own way [C]yet
If [D]you need instr[C]uction in [G]mindless destruction
I'll [Am]show you a [D]thing or [G]two
You [D]used to ado[C]re me but [G]now my life flashes [Am]before me
For [D]you to view
Oh [D]mother, oh m[A]other, somet[D]imes you are [G]so mortify[Em]ing
[D] [A] [D] [G] [Em] 
But [D]your gener[A]ation con[D]fesses be[G]fore it transg[Em]resses
Those [D]Super-8 m[A]ovies of d[D]addy in [G]your disco [Em]dresses
[G]If you're going out tonight
[C]I won't wait [Am]up
Reading "Das Kapital"
[A]Watching "Home Shopping Club"
While you're [D]flogging a dead horse
[C]All the [G]way down [D]Pony S[G]treet
[D]Where you live [G]after a f[D]ashion
[C]All the [G]way down [D]Pony S[G]treet
The l[D]ife and the [G]soul of every ind[C]iscretion
[Am]That lives on, that lives on, t[D]hat lives on
[C]Pony [G/B]Street
[D]Daughter, oh d[A]aughter, you [D]know I will l[G]ove you for[Em]ever
But s[D]pare me the [A]white ankle s[D]ocks with the l[G]ace and the [Em]leather
For [F]you and your [A]cartoon [D]threat do no g[G]ood to re[Em]sist me
For [F]I am the g[A]enuine [D]thing but for y[G]ou it's just h[Em]istory
[G]If you're going out tonight
[C]How can you be [Am]sure
Where you lay your pretty head
[A]Mother may have been before
So you're fl[D]ogging a dead horse
[C]All the [G]way down [D]Pony [G]Street
[D]Where you live [G]after a [D]fashion
[C]All the [G]way down [D]Pony [G]Street
The [D]life and the [G]soul of every indis[C]cretion
[Am]That lives on, T[Am]hat lives on
[Am]That lives on, T[A]hat lives on, [A]That lives on
[D]She [Dsus4]lives [D]on Pony Street (2x)
[D]She [Dsus4]lives [D]on, [D]she [Dsus4]lives [D]on (2x)
D Dsus4 D until fade out
