Pouring Water On a Drowning Man - By Elvis Costello From "Kojak Variety"

Pouring Water On A Drowning Man
(Elvis Costello from the album "Kojak
Variety - Words and Music by D.
Baker/D. McCormick)
Transcribed by D.
William Bennett

N.C.                 C      F     C
You push me when I'm
falling
C                    C      F     C
And then you put me down
C
C      F     C
I guess I missed my calling
C                    Am
I should
have been a clown
E7
How much more
E7       Am    G    F
How much more can
I stand
C
You're pouring water
F                           C
On a drowning
man

You put me on the right track
And then you put me down
You stab me in
the back
Everytime I turn around

Criticize my lovin'
When I'm doing the
very best I can
You're pouring water
On a drowning man

Chorus:

N.C.
Dm
You're pouring water
     G        C
On a drowning man

Dm
You treat me like
    G          Am
The fool that I am
             E7
Am
You bet that I like everything you do
    G          C
Put salt in my
wounds
     F            G
It's sad but it's true


You warm me with your
kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I've
never been told
Won't you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You're
pouring water
On a drowning man

Chorus
You're pouring water
On a drowning
man
You treat me like
The fool that I am
You bet that I like everything you
do
Put salt in my wounds
It's sad but it's true

You warm me with your
kisses
Then you leave me in the cold
How can I know your wishes
When I've
never been told
Won't you please forgive me
Just try and understand
You're
pouring water
On a poor drowning man
C                 F
I got tears in my
eyes
F                 C
Oh, I'm a drowning man
C                 F
I got
tears in my eyes
C
You're pouring water
F
On a drowing man
C
You're pouring
water
F
On a poor drowning man
C
