[Verse 1]
                C             Am
He's pleased to meet you underneath the horse
          C                 Am
In the cathedral with the glass stained black
          C                   Am
Singing sweet high notes that echo back
Ab                    G7
To destroy their master
          C                 Am
May be a long time till you get the call-up
          C                Am
But it's sure as fate and hard as your luck
C          Ab             G   D
No-one'll know where you are

[Chorus]
             C     Am   Fmaj7          G
It's just a brief smile crossing your face
         C     Am    Fmaj7        G
Running speed trials standing in place

[Verse 2]
          C              Am
When the socket's not a shock enough
            C                    Am
You little child what makes you think you're tough?
              C                Am
When all the people you think you're above
Ab                           G7
They all know what's the matter
               C                Am
You're such a pinball yeah you know it's true
                C                     Am
There's always something you go back running to
C              Ab     G           D
To follow the path of no resistance

[Chorus]
             C     Am   Fmaj7          G
It's just a brief smile crossing your face
         C      Am   Fmaj7        G
Running speed trials standing in place
             Am    F     C            G
It's just a brief smile crossing your face
         Am     F   C              G
Running speed trials all over the place

[Ending]

Play these chords to fade-out while Elliott sings "Oooh-ooh-ohh", etc.:
Am  F  C  G
During the part where the words are "No one'll know where you are", you might try:
Ab         Eb           F    G
No one'll know where you are

Same for "To follow the path of no resistance"

Neither one is completely right, I don't think, but maybe each is part right.
