Rocking Horse Road  Elvis Costello

Intro: G C D C (same pattern through the first part of the verses)
The c[G]hains from the [C]bridle and the [D]reins fell [C]from my hands [G] [C] [D] [C]
The e[G]ngines are i[C]dle and the s[D]hip sails [C]on dry land[G] [C] [D] [C]
[Em]I stood there s[Bm]tupefied, I [Am]thought I recog-[Bm]nized [C]
[C]Walking down Rocking Horse [D]Road, getting lost
[G] [C] [D] [C]  
[G]Shot through V[C]aseline, he [D]picks up the [C]paper from the lawn [G] [C] [D] [C]
And [G]tucks the Sub[C]urban Assa[D]ssin[C] underneath his arm[G] [C] [D] [C]
[Em]He smiles weakly and t[Bm]urns away. I [Am]know I'll never [Bm]come to [C]harm
C D(? I don't think this is right, but the bass makes it hard to figure)
Walking down Rocking Horse Road, it's so peaceful
[F#m]It's like a ph[Bm]otograph
[F#m]From the other side of the [Bm]world
[Am] I [Bm]said "I want you o[C]nly"
[Am]And [Bm]then I l[C]eft you alone
Am Bm C D (tacit)
Crying on Rocking Horse Road, or somewhere quite like it
(Louder) G C D C
[G] [C] [D] [D]  
(Back to standard verse level) G C D C (x2)
The [G]cemetery [C]gardens, there are [D]names not [C]numbers on the gateposts [G] [C] [D] [C]
And the [G]eyes in the [C]curtain f[D]ollow you l[C]ike a smirking ghost[G] [C] [D] [C]
[Em]I know I [Bm]must not look back, 'cause [Am]part of me is [Bm]waiting s[C]till
[C]There on Rocking Horse Road for you
[Am]In a little dream house made for two
Well [C]you were the [D]one who [G]made your es[C]cape
[C]In your stocking [D]feet and your [G]sticky [C]tape
(Outro and fade, repeating with variation:)
[C]All the way [D]down.[G]..[C]
