The Angels Want to Wear My  Red Shoes by ELVIS COSTELLO

[Intro]

E   B   E   B E

[Verse]

E                                    G#m
Oh I used to be disgusted, and now I try to be amused.
                E7
But since their wings have got rusted,
              A            B           E
you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
              A                                  E
But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain,
              A                     E
that's when I knew that I could not refuse.
            B                      A            B           A      E
And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
     A                            B        E
Oh,   I was watching while you're dancing away.
B                             A        E
Our love got fractured in the echo and sway.
A                           B       E
How come everybody wants to be your friend?
    G#m                                 B
You know that it still hurts me just to say it.
      E
Oh, I know that she's disgusted (oh why's that)
            G#m
Cause she's feeling so abused. (oh that's too bad)
         A
She gets tired of the lust, (oh I'm so sad)
           B
but it's so hard to refuse.
            A
How can you say that I'm too old,
         E           B             A       E
when the angels have stolen my red shoes.
    A                     B       E
Oh, I said "I'm so happy, I could die."
B                                      A     E
She said "Drop dead," then left with another guy.
A                             B              E
That's what you get if you go chasing after vengeance.
     G#m                                         B
Ever since you got me punctured this has been my sentence.
E                                    G#m
Oh I used to be disgusted, and now I try to be amused.
                E7
But since their wings have got rusted,
              A            B           E
you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
              A                                  E
But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain,
              A                     E
that's when I knew that I could not refuse.
            B                      A            B           A      E
And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
A              E                          A                    E
Red shoes, the angels want to wear my red shoes Red shoes, the angels
want to
 wear my red (A)shoes  (and so on)

Incredible tab! Personally, I find this much easier to play transposed -2 and with a capo on fret 2 on the guitar.

Wow this really improves upon the original set of chords as far as how close to the song it sounds! Thanks for the suggestion!
