Roger McGuinn You Bowed Down written by Elvis Costello
[Eb]I supp[Eb/D]ose you're [Cm]entitled to know why I'm [Ab]making c[Fm]ontacts
[Ab]With acquaintances [Eb]scattered all over the [Fm]land[Bbsus] [Bb]
[Eb]I'd promise[Eb/D] you [Cm] now and again that I'd [Ab]honor the c[Fm]ontract
[Ab]If it hadn't c[Eb]rumbled away in my [Fm]han[Bbsus]d[Bb]
[Ab]Well we broke that [Bb]vow i[Fm]ndependently [Bb]now
[F]But I don't know [Cm]why [Ab]you absol[Ab/G]utely [Fm]deny
You bowed [Eb]down[Eb/D] [Cm] [Bb] you bowed [Ab]down[Bb]
You bowed[Eb] dow[Eb/D]n [Cm] [Bb] you bowed[Ab] dow[Bb]n
[Eb]When you [Eb/D]first looked [Cm]away I might say it was [Ab]really a [Fm]kindness
[Ab]It must have [Eb]hurt to see how dreams [Fm]sour[Bbsus] [Bb]
[Eb]Now they [Eb/D]say that [Cm]justice and love are the [Ab]next thing to [Fm]blindnesss
[Ab]Well you're getting [Eb]plenty of both of them[Fm] now[Bbsus] [Bb]
[Ab]And so you [Bb]parade [Fm]where appointments are m[Bb]ade
[F]And never meant to be [Cm]kept [Ab]unless [Ab/G]you [Fm]accept
You bowed [Eb]down[Eb/D] [Cm] [Bb] you bowed [Ab]down[Bb]
You bowed[Eb] dow[Eb/D]n [Cm] [Bb] you bowed[Ab] dow[Bb]n
[Ab]You'll value the [Bb]burnt amber of falling [Ab]leaves
And you'll long to [Bb]delay
[Ab]You'll feel their [Bb]breath as they whisper
[Ab]It won't hurt you to betray
If you [Eb]just[Eb/D] bow [Cm]down[Bb] [Ab]just bow [Bb]down
[Eb]Just[Eb/D] bow [Cm]down[Bb] [Ab]just bow [Bb]down
[Eb]And now[Eb/D] every [Cm]time that we meet on the [Ab]edge of [Fm]hysteria
[Ab]You're helping them [Eb]sell off some new party [Fm]line[Bbsus] [Bb]
[Eb]I remembe[Eb/D]r a t[Cm]ime when you would have s[Ab]eemed so [Fm]superior
[Ab]Now you say will you [Eb]please meet this good friend of [Fm]min[Bbsus]e[Bb]
[Ab]So your in [Bb]demand as l[Fm]ong as you'll kiss their [Bb]hand
[F]But all the [Cm]applause [Ab]is for their [Ab/G]name not [Fm]yours
You bowed [Eb]down[Eb/D] [Cm] [Bb] you bowed [Ab]down[Bb]
You bowed[Eb] dow[Eb/D]n [Cm] [Bb] you bowed[Ab] dow[Bb]n
