The Scarlet Tide Chords

So, this is meant for ukulele, and I originally learned it on the uke, but it 
should be the same chords for guitar, so here you go!

Well I recall his parting words
Must I accept his fate?
    A     D         G          A       
Or take myself far from this place
I thought I heard a black bell toll
A little bird did sing
     A       D
Man has no choice
     G         A         D
When he wants everything
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/e/elvis_costello/the_scarlet_tide_crd.html ]
       D     A          G      D
We'll rise above the scarlet tide
C                    A            G
That trickles down through the mountain
      G    D              A          D
And separates the widow from the bride

(same as first verse)
Man goes beyond his own decision
Gets caught up in the mechanism
Of swindlers who act like kings
And brokers who break everything
The dark of night was swiftly fading
Close to the dawn of the day
Why would I want him
Just to lose him again

[Chorus 2x]
