Waiting for the End of the World  Elvis Costello

 

WAITING FOR THE END OF THE WORLD
Elvis Costello
|G CF|G CF|G CF|G CF|
The [G]man from the [C]tele[F]vision [G]crawled into the [C]train.
I [F]wonder [G]who he's gonna [C]stick it [F]in this [G]time.[CF]
[C]Ev'ryone was [Bb]looking [F]for a [C]little enter[Bb]tainment,
[F]So they'll [G]prob'bly pull his [C]hands off [F]when they [G]find out his [C]name.
And [F]then they [D]shut down the power all al[F]ong the l[C]ine,
And we got [D]stuck in the tunnel where [F]no lights [C]shine.
They got to t[D]ouching all the girls who were too[F] scared to c[C]all out.
[D]Nobody was saying anything at all.
We were w[G]aiting for the [C]end [F]of the w[G]orld.[CF]
[G]Waiting for the [C]end [F]of the w[G]orld,[CF]
[G]Waiting for the [C]end [F]of the w[G]orld.
Dear [Em]Lord, I sinc[G]erely hope you're comin',
'Cause you really started something.
|G CF|G CF|G CF|G CF|
[G]Things got back to [C]normal [F]as the [G]train began to [C]roll ag[F]ain.
G C F G C F|G CF|G CF|
We got to the station about twenty minutes later.
The l[C]egendary h[Bb]itchh[F]iker s[C]ays he knows wh[Bb]ere it's at[F].
[G]Now he'd like to [C]go to S[F]pain, or s[G]omewhere like t[C]hat,
[F]With his t[D]wo-tone Bible and his f[F]unny cigar[C]ettes,
His[D] sun tan lotion and his castenets.
He was w[G]aiting for the [C]end [F]of the w[G]orld,[CF]
[G]Waiting for the e[C]nd [F]of the w[G]orld,[CF]
[G]Waiting for the [C]end [F]of the w[G]orld.
Dear L[Em]ord, I sinc[G]erely hope you're comin',
'Cause you really started something.
|G CF|G CF|G CF|G
[C]And th[F]en the br[G]ide, the gr[C]oom, the congreg[F]ation and the pr[G]iest
All got onto the tr[C]ain when we were[F] three stations [G]east, yeah.
|G CF|G CF|G CF|G CF|
[C]Hiding from a sc[Bb]andal [F]in the n[C]ational press,[Bb]
They h[F]ad been tr[G]ying to get m[C]arried s[F]ince they st[G]ole the wedding dr[C]ess.[F]
[D]You may see them drowning as you str[F]oll along the b[C]each.
But don't thr[D]ow out the lifeline till they're clean out of reach.
[G]Waiting for the [C]end [F]of the w[G]orld.[CF]
[G]Waiting for the [C]end [F]of the w[G]orld.[CF]
