Complicated Shadows  Elvis Costello

Chords by
Intro A D G x 4
Well, you k[A]now your time has co[D]me[G]
And you're s[A]orry for what you've d[D]on[G]e
You should've ne[D]ver been playing with a gun in those complicated sh[A]ado[D]ws[G]
Well, there's a l[A]ine that you must t[D]oe[G]
And it will s[A]oon be time to [D]go[G]
But it's darker[D] than you know in those complicated sh[A]adows[D] [G] [A] [D]
All you gan[G]gsters and rude clowns, Who were sho[D]oting up the town
When you sh[E]ould've found someone to put the bla[A]me on[D] [G] [A] [D]
Though the f[G]ury's hot and hard, I still s[D]ee that cold graveyard
There's a so[E]litary stone that's got your name on
You don't h[A]ave to take it from m[D]e[G]
But I k[A]now of what I s[D]pak[G]e
You think yo[A]u're like iron and ste[D]el[G]
But iron and s[E]teel will bend and break in these complicated sh[A]adows[D] [G] [A] [D] [G]
No... (solo) A D G x3 A D
Sometimes j[G]ustice, you will find, Is just d[D]umb not color blind
And your [E]poor shattered mind can't take it [A]all in[D] [G] [A] [D]
All those pha[G]ntoms and their shades, Should jump [D]up on Judgement Day
And s[E]ay to the Almighty "I'm still stinking of sin"
But the j[A]ury was dismi[D]sse[G]d
Took his n[A]eck and they gave it a t[D]wis[G]t
So you s[D]ee, you won't be missed in those complicated sha[A]dows[D] [G] [A] [D]
You can s[A]ay just what you l[D]ike[G]
In a v[A]oice like a John Ford f[D]ilm[G]
Take the l[A]aw into your ha[D]nds[G]
And you will s[D]oon get tired of killing in those complicated sh[A]adows[D] [G]
Complicated s[A]hadows [D]x 3[G]
A D G x 12
