Shot With His Own Gun
Words & Music by: Elvis Costello
>From the album: TRUST

Comment: I am not sure how well this song
works with solo guitar/singer combo. The
version on the album w vocal and piano is
great, though. If anybody figures out a
better arrangement for guitar please
let me know. I am more of a strummer than a picker, but I think a good
guitarist could turn this into a great arrangement. thanks,    m.

Dm Am Dm Am

Am                          F      C
How does it feel now you've been undressed
     Dm         C             G      C
by a man with a mind like the gutter press
E       Am         D         G      D
So disappointed to find it's no big sin
G     D       G     G#dim
Lying skin to skin

Ab  F#  Ebm         F#          D           D+ Bb   F
Now somebody has to pay for the one who got away

Am                        F        C
What's on his mind now is anyone's guess
Dm         C          G       C
Losing his touch with each caress
E              Am              D    G
Spending ev'ry evening looking so appealing
   D             G
He comes without warning
D              G   G#dim
Leaves without feeling


Ab F#   Ebm                F#            D             D+ Bb   F
On your marks, man, ready, set Let's get loaded and forget

Am                      F      C
The little corporal got in the way
    Dm     C          G        C
And he got hit by an emotional ricochet
E          Am            D           G
It's a bit more now than dressing up dolly
D       G           D       G  G#dim
Playing house seems so melancholy


Ab F#   Ebm           F#             D                D+  Bb   F
Oh it's too sad to be true your blue murder's killing you


(yeah, right, i can TAB that!?!)
