Elvis Costello – Pony St chords

Chords
Transpose:
The perfect introduction to an album like Brutal Youth, which I describe as all of 
EC&A's previous work thrown into a blender to create a fantastic mix.

Intro: D  Dsus4  D[5x]

GShe lives on Pony Street
G CAnd they should scatter flowers at her feet
D C G But when they come calling I think it's appalling
Am D G They're sober and they're polite
D C G They're deeply respectful when I would expect them
Am D To keep her out all night
GThat little martinet
G CWill get her own way yet
D C G If you need instruction in mindless destruction
Am D G I'll show you a thing or two
D C G AmYou used to adore me but now my life flashes before me
D For you to view
D A D G Em Oh mother, oh mother, sometimes you are so mortifying
D A D G EmFrom the hole in your leopard skin tights I can tell you've been spying
D A D G EmBut your generation confesses before it transgresses
D A D G Em Those Super-8 movies of daddy in your disco dresses
GIf you're going out tonight
C Am I won't wait up
Reading "Das Kapital"
A Watching "Home Shopping Club"
DWhile you're flogging a dead horse
C G D GAll the way down Pony Street
D G D Where you live after a fashion
C G D G All the way down Pony Street
D G C The life and the soul of every indiscretion
Am DThat lives on, that lives on, that lives on
C G/B Pony Street
D A D G EmDaughter, oh daughter, you know I will love you forever
D A D G Em But spare me the white ankle socks with the lace and the leather
F A D G Em For you and your cartoon threat do no good to resist me
F A D G Em For I am the genuine thing but for you it's just history
GIf you're going out tonight
C AmHow can you be sure
Where you lay your pretty head
AMother may have been before
DSo you're flogging a dead horse
C G D G All the way down Pony Street
D G D Where you live after a fashion
C G D G All the way down Pony Street
D G C The life and the soul of every indiscretion
Am AmThat lives on, That lives on
Am A A That lives on, That lives on, That lives on
D Dsus4 D She lives on Pony Street [2x]
D Dsus4 D D Dsus4 D She lives on, she lives on [2x]
D Dsus4 D until fade out
