Heres Red Shoes
Here's Red Shoes by Elvis Costello. I was surprised not to find this in the archieves, so I took a shot at it - if someone wants to make corrections (esp. someone with the songbook), go for it. Intro E A E Esus4 E Oh I used to be disgusted Abm and now I try to be amused. E But since their wings have got rusted, A B E you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. E F# Ab A E But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, A E that's when I knew that I could not refuse. B A E Esus4 E And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes. A B E I was watching while you're dancing away. B A E Our love got fractured in the echo and sway. A B E How come everybody wants to be your friend? Abm B You know that it still hurts me just to say it. E Oh, I know that she's disgusted (oh why's that) Abm Cause she's feeling so abused. (oh that's too bad) E She gets tired of the lust, (oh I'm so sad) B but it's so hard to refuse. A How can you say that I'm too old, E B A E E Esus4 E when the angels have stolen my red shoes. A B E Oh, I said "I'm so happy, I could die." B A E She said "Drop dead," then left with another guy. A B E That's what you get if you go chasing after vengeance. Abm B Ever since you got me punctured this has been my sentence. *same as first four lines in first stanza and repeat on the chords for extra lines* Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. Red shoes, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
