From: "D. W. Bennett" Subject: c/costello_elvis/clowntime_is_over.crd Clowntime Is Over (Elvis Costello from the album "Get Happy!" - Words and Music by Elvis Costello) Transcribed by D. W. Bennett Intro: C F C Csus4 Ab G C F Tears on your blackmail Am Dm Written to ransom C F A point of the fingernail Am Dm Says that he's handsome C F Clowntime is over Ab F Time to take cover C F While others just talk and talk Am Dm G Somebody's watching where the others don't walk G C Clowntime is over A voice in the shadows Says that his men know He don't step back as expected He's otherwise and unprotected Chorus C F Almost too good to be true Am Dm Who do you? why do you? what do you do? C F While everybody's hiding under covers Am Dm Dm/E Dm/F G Who's making lover's lane safe again for lovers?
