Elvis Costello - One Bell Ringing chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
Ok, so this is how i play it, not 100% correct i dont think.

He does this at the beginning i think, its a quick little move, but i think it sounds neat:
|-e----------|
|-b--5\1-1/3-|
|-g--4\0-0/2-|
|-d----------|
|-a----------|
|-e----------|

I guess these are the correct chord names:
 Dsus2*      C6         F*        G
|-e----0--||-e---0---||-e---5---||-e---7---|
|-b----3--||-b---1---||-b---6---||-b---8---|
|-g----2--||-g---0---||-g---5---||-g---7---|
|-d----0--||-d---2---||-d-------||-d-------|
|-a-------||-a---0---||-a-------||-a-------|
|-e-------||-e-------||-e-------||-e-------|

*There is a regular "F" played in the song, F* will notate the one played at the fifth fret
*When playing the Dsus4, hammer on and off of the g string at your discretion

Listen to the recording to get a sense of the song. There are some other little tricks 
he does, but this should at least get you started

One Bell Ringing

Dsus2
Raining slapping on the window pane
C
An hour or more of teeming
C6
Storm punching like a hurricane
Dsus2
That tore him out of dreaming

Dsus2
Air screaming through the slightest gap
C
Rattling between the frame and the sill
C6
Drapes hanging from the final act
Dsus2
When I had you still

F*            G   F*       G
One lonely bird... is singing
F*
Lower the hood hung of his lament
G                            F (Standard F at first fret)
Dash him down on cold cement
   C      Dsus2
One Bell Ringing

Flies buzzing round strip search light
They've got him down on his knees
He thinks of honey dripping from a spoon
Girls whispering in Portuguese

Between muzzle and the black site
Electrical contact
Deny your name and then carry the blame
Somewhat after the fact

One lonely bird is singing
Lower the hood hung on that last lament
Dash him down on cold cement
One Bell Ringing
