HARPIES BIZARRE / Elvis Costello
--------------------------------

By Declan Patric Aloysius MacManus

The lyrics were type by one anonymous who provided the lyrics for the album,
available via ftp from cs.uwp.edu.
The "Intro E" sections for organ can be played on guitar, as transcribed in
TAB (using TAB MASTER). The little woodwind instrument solo is not [yet!]
transcribed, but the chords are available, with added beat measures: 7xE 1xB
mean that in two 4/4 bars, play 7 beats of chord E, and then 1 beat of B.
Enjoy! Comments/corrections/additions/ideas/questions are always welcome,

HARPIES BIZARRE / Elvis Costello
--------------------------------

By Declan Patric Aloysius MacManus
From Elvis Costello's "Mighty Like a Rose", (c) 1991


[intro E]

Here's what the keyboards play:
e:-----------------------------------------------|
B:-----------------------------------------------|
G:-----------------------------------------------|
D:1--2--------1--2--------1--2--------1--2-------|
A:------1--2-----------0--------4--3--------3--2-|
E:------------------4----------------------------|


E              B                    A               B
He selects the plainest face form a spiteful row of girls
E         B             A                  G#7
Elegant insulted women, a flaw of cultured pearls
C#m         G#m         G#            C#m
C#m         G#m         G#            C#m
 He drops a name or two, she fails to catch
   A                 E
At last he's met his match
                  B                       E
Unspoiled and unaffected, he wants her so much


[intro E]


E                B                  A                       B
She puts up half-hearted resistance, like she was taught to do
E                         B                   A                     G#7
She's heard some of those small town playboys but this is something new
C#m                G#m        G#            C#m
 His promise seems dangerous, she'd like to believe
   A                  E
He says "You'd better leave"
                     B                        E
"You've only got yourself to blame, shame, or deceive"


E7                    A
The waiting lines are long
Am                 E
They never get too far
                                 B
Everyone wearing that medal with pride
        E

[intro E]


E               B
I looked on but hesitated
A                 B
 I failed to interrupt
E                 B
You're so hard to tell the truth too
A             G#7
 So easy to corrupt
C#m       G#m
 I'll memorize your face
G#           C#m
 Your tragic smile
    A                 E
The hurt look in your eyes
                    B                            E
As you betrayed yourself to the part of him that dies


E7                    A
The waiting lines are long
     Am            E
They never get too far
        E7               A        Am             E
They're shining up their shoes to kick a falling star
    E7                  A
You think you should be somebody
        Am                 E
But you don't know who you are
                                 B
Everyone wearing that medal with pride
        E
