Subject: Elvis Costello-What's So Funny...

Here are the chords and the lyrics to the song, "What's so FUnny 'bout Peace,
Love, and Understanding", by Elvis Costello.

I figured out the chords as best as I could, and I think they sound pretty
close.

What's So Funny 'bout Peace, Love, and Understanding?
          -- by Elvis Costello --


INTRO:  A . . . D . . . A . . . D . . .
        A . . . D . . . A . . . D . . .

          A        D              A      D
As I walk through     This wicked world

              F#m          B             E       D
Searching for light in the darkness of insanity

        A     D               A       D
I ask myself     "Is all hope lost?"

               F#m      B           E         D
"Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?"

         A                E
And each time I feel like losin' sight

        F#m               D
There's one thing I wanna know,

A                    E                     F#m        B
Whats so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?  Oh

A                    E                     F#m        E
Whats so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?


BREAK:  A . . . D . . . A . . . D . . .
        A . . . D . . . A . . . D . . .

          A   D                   A      D
As I walk on     Through troubled times

               F#m    B           E      D
My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes

              A     D            A        D
So where I've gone     And who I trusted

                 F#m B       E              D
And where is the har - mon - y, sweet harmony

            A              E
'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away

   F#m                 D
It just makes me wanna cry,

 A                    E                     F#m         B
"Whats so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?"  Oh

 A                    E                     F#m         E
"Whats so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?"

Need many correction's on Elvis Costello's "What's so Funny About Peace Love and Understanding". Use G as the root and cap where needed depending on your voice. Lyrics were missing and some were incorrect to point of making no sense. Here is the real thing:

G D C G D C
As I walk through / this wicked world
Em A D
Searching for light in the darkness of insanity
G D C G D C
I ask myself "Is all hope lost?"
Em A D C
Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?
G D G7 C
?Cause each time I feel like this inside / one thing I wanna know;
G D Em A
Whats so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding? Oh
G D Em D
Whats so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?


BREAK: G D C (repeat 4 x)


As I walk on / through troubled times
My spirit gets / so downhearted sometimes
So where are the strong ones? / and who are the trusted?
And where is the har - - - mony, sweet harmony
'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away
just makes me wanna cry,
What?s so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding? Oh
What?s so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?

Break G D C (repeat 6x)
Ohhhhh - - -
Em A D C

So where are the strong ones? / And who are the trusted?
And where is the har - - - mony / Sweet Harmony
Cause each time I feel it slippin? away / just makes me wanna cry
G D Em A
Whats so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding? Oh
G D Em D
Whats so funny 'bout peace, love, and understanding?
G D Em (hold)
Whats so funny 'bout peace, love, and understa - - - nding?

Fadeout: G D C (repeat).
