Roger McGuinn    You Bowed Down   written by Elvis Costello
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/mcguinn_roger/you_bowed_down_crd.html ]
Eb    Eb/D       Cm                       Ab      Fm
I suppose you're entitled to know why I'm making contacts
Ab                 Eb                     Fm  Bbsus Bb
With acquaintances scattered all over the land
Eb         Eb/D Cm                      Ab         Fm 
I'd promise you  now and again that I'd honor the contract
Ab            Eb                 Fm Bbsus Bb
If it hadn't crumbled away in my hand
Ab                 Bb   Fm           Bb
Well we broke that vow independently now
F                Cm  Ab       Ab/G  Fm
But I don't know why you absolutely deny
          Eb  Eb/D Cm Bb         Ab  Bb
You bowed down         you bowed down  
         Eb  Eb/D Cm Bb         Ab  Bb
You bowed down         you bowed down
Eb       Eb/D         Cm                      Ab       Fm      
When you first looked away I might say it was really a kindness 
Ab           Eb                     Fm  Bbsus Bb
It must have hurt to see how dreams sour
Eb       Eb/D     Cm                       Ab            Fm
Now they say that justice and love are the next thing to blindnesss
Ab                  Eb                    Fm   Bbsus Bb
Well you're getting plenty of both of them now
Ab         Bb      Fm                      Bb
And so you parade  where appointments are made
F                     Cm   Ab     Ab/G Fm
And never meant to be kept unless you  accept
          Eb  Eb/D Cm Bb         Ab  Bb
You bowed down         you bowed down  
         Eb  Eb/D Cm Bb         Ab  Bb
You bowed down         you bowed down
Ab               Bb                     Ab
You'll value the burnt amber of falling leaves
                   Bb
And you'll long to delay
Ab                 Bb
You'll  feel their breath as they whisper
Ab
It won't hurt you to betray
       Eb  Eb/D Cm  Bb       Ab       Bb
If you just bow down         just bow down  
Eb  Eb/D Cm  Bb       Ab       Bb
Just bow down         just bow down
Eb     Eb/D   Cm                       Ab      Fm
And now every time that we meet on the edge of hysteria
Ab                   Eb                      Fm  Bbsus Bb            
You're helping them  sell off some new party line
Eb       Eb/D Cm                       Ab       Fm       
I remember a time when you would have seemed so superior
Ab                   Eb                              Fm Bbsus Bb
Now you say will you please meet this good friend of mine
Ab         Bb         Fm                       Bb
So your in demand as long as you'll kiss their hand
F           Cm       Ab           Ab/G      Fm  
But all the applause is for their name  not yours
          Eb  Eb/D Cm Bb         Ab  Bb
You bowed down         you bowed down  
         Eb  Eb/D Cm Bb         Ab  Bb
You bowed down         you bowed down
