Clowntime Is Over
(Elvis Costello from the album "Get Happy!" - Words and Music by Elvis
Transcribed by D. W. Bennett

Intro: D    C    D   Gsus4 D#      D
D             C
Tears on your blackmail
Em         Am
Written to ransom
D              C
A point of the fingernail
Em             Am
Says that he's handsome
D            C
Clowntime is over
D#           C
Time to take cover
D                 C
While others just talk and talk
Em         Am                              D
Somebody's watching where the others don't walk
D                D
Clowntime is over

A voice in the shadows
Says that his men know
He don't step back as expected
He's otherwise and unprotected

D          C
Almost too good to be true
Em          Am
Who do you? why do you? what do you do?
D                 C
While everybody's hiding under covers
Em                        Am    Am/B    Am/C   D
Who's making lover's lane safe again for lovers?


I like to end with the intro followed by a sustained C12 (open C chord with a
high G added) chord.
