Elvis Costello - Everyday I write the book

 
    ***capo 2nd fret***

 
Intro - Bm - F#m - Gmaj7 - A




(verse 1)
        D                          F#m    
Don't tell me you don't know what love is 
             Bm                  F#m
when you're old enough to, know better.  
            Bm                        Em 
When you find strange hands in your sweater, when,
          F#m         B                     
your dreamboat turns out to be a footnote, 
      Em                      F#m           A
I'm a man with a, mission in two or three editions,





  (chorus)
 D   F#m         G      A        D         F#m
I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
      G         A                D - F#m - G - A
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book,




(verse 2)
           Bm                                       D
Chapter one, we didn't really get along, Chapter two, 
            F#m              D - G
I think I fell in love with you.  
A    Bm
you said you'd stand by me in the
                                       Em 
middle of Chapter three, but you were up to your old tricks in Chapters
 F#m             A
four, five, and six,



(chorus)
 D   F#m         G      A        D         F#m
I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
      G         A                D   F#m
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.



(verse 3)
The way you walk, the way you talk,
and try to kiss me and laugh in four or five paragraphs.       
All your compliments and your,
cutting remarks are captured here in my quotation marks,



(chorus)
 D   F#m         G      A        D         F#m
I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
      G         A                D - F#m - G - A
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.    




(verse 4)
        D                           F#m       
Don't tell me you don't know the diff'rence, 
    Bm                  F#m
between a lover and a fighter,
         Bm                       Em          F#m
With my pen and my electric typewriter, even in a
     F#m                        B  
even in a perfect world where ev'ryone was equal, 
          Em
I'd still own the film rights,
         F#m            A
and be working on the sequel,



(bridge)
 D   F#m         G      A        D         F#m
I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
      G         A                Bm 
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.



(lead - F#m - G - A - D - F#m - G - A)



(chorus)
 D   F#m         G      A        D         F#m
I'm giving you a long look ev'ryday, ev'ryday,
      G         A                D - F#m - G - A
ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.    
     D         F#m       G         A
Ev'ryday, ev'ryday, ev'ryday, ev'ryday I write the book.
