Here's the chords for this great cover of I Know It's Over by The Smiths.
Sounds great with a Telecaster set on the neck pick-up with some tasty reverb.

Chords you need to know: G Em C D Bm (all open chords apart from Bm)

Capo on the 5th Fret


[Intro]

      G                                       Em
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
          G                                 Em
And as I climb into an empty bed - oh well, enough said
             C             D         C                         D
I know it's over, still I cling, I don't know where else I can go
C                          D
Over and over.....


[Verse 1]

      G                                        Em      C  D
Oh Mother, I can feel the soil falling over my head
         G                                                Em
See the sea wants to take me, the knife wants to slit me

Do you think you can help me
C     D     G                                                   Em
Sad veiled bride please be happy - handsome groom give her room
C     D        G
Loud loutish lover treat her kindly though she needs you
 Em                     C  D                C               D
More than she loves you   - and I know it's over - still I cling
   C                           D             C       D
I don't know where else I can go - over and over.....


[Hook]

             G                 C          D                  C   D   Em
I know it's over and it never really began but in my heart it was so real
                      D      C  D
And she even spoke to me and said


[Verse 2]

 G                                             Em           C  D
"If you're so funny, then why are you on your own tonight?"
 G                                                Em            C  D
"And if you're so clever then why are you on your own tonight?"
 G                                                            Em         C  D
"And if you're so very entertaining then why are you on your own tonight?"
 G                                                           Em           
"And if you're so very good looking, then why do you sleep alone tonight?"
C  D           G
I know - 'cos tonight is just like any other night - that's why you're on
      Em
your own tonight


[Verse 3]

           G                                Em                           C
With your triumphs and your charms - while they're in each other's arms
D                C                     D               C
It's so easy to laugh it's so easy to hate, it takes strength to be gentle
      D             C          D
and kind - over and over....
                 G                     C              D         
It's so easy to laugh it's so easy to hate, it takes guts to be gentle and
Em              C        D
kind - over and over....


[Outro]

        G            C  D              Bm               C          D
Love is natural and real - but not for you my love not tonight my love
        G            C  D       C       D       Em     C     D
Love is natural and real - but not for such as you and I my love
    G          C     D      Bm   C    D
Oh mother... etc.
    G          C     D      Em   D    C    D etc.
