Hello,

Here are a few more chord charts (not really TAB after all)
for some Elvis Costello songs.

Don't forget to use a single spaced font for this!

Please let me know if there are any errors, corrections, and so on.

Thanks,

Shabby Doll
By Elvis Costello
>From the Album:  Imperial Bedroom

Am6   = 022020
F/A   = 032010
D/A   = 002220
Gmaj7 = XX0333

INTRO:

Dm   Am6  F/A  Dm


Dm
Giving you more of what for

Always worked for me before
          G            Dm
Now I'm a shabby doll
Dm                                   G
What's going on behind the green elevator door
Dm          G             Dm
With just a shabby doll

          Dm
There's a hit man facing

A compromising situation
              Dm
With just a shabby doll
                                        G
And a very neat line in character assassination
Dm           G             Dm
She's just a shabby doll

CHORUS:
G            D
She's just a shabby doll
      G                   D
She's putting him off and putting you on
G              D           G               D
She's just the shabby doll, she's just the shabby doll
       G              D                      G
You're swearing upon, you know in your heart
G              D                     Dm
She's gone you know in your heart
She's just a shabby doll

Dm
There's a girl in this dress
There's always a girl in distress
             G              Dm
She's just a shabby doll
She's so sure she's self-possessed
      G                         Dm
Then again she's half undressed
             G             Dm
She's just a shabby doll

    Dm
The boy that I used to be
Showed no sign of sympathy
           Dm
For just a shabby doll
I have betrayed you and me
            G                 Dm
And paid for my own bribery
            G           Dm
With just a shabby doll

(chorus)

BRIDGE:
D/A (002220)                  Gmaj7 (XX0333)
He's the tired toy that everyone enjoyed
   D/A                              G
He wants to be a fancy man but he's nothing but a nancy boy
F                     E
He's all pride and no joy

Dm
And being what you might call a whore
Always worked for me before
          G           Dm
Now I'm a shabby doll
Untie the gag the cat's out of the bag
    G                    Dm
But won't show his claws
            G
He's just a shabby doll

Dm
She said you must be joking
Some things are left unspoken
              Dm
You're just a shabby doll
He's lying limp and soaking
           G         Dm
He was openly broken
          G
By just a shabby doll

(chorus)
