Elvis Costello – Deep Dark Truthful Mirror chords

Chords
Transpose:
G Bm One day you're gonna have to face
Am G G/C G A deep dark truthful mirror
D And it's gonna tell you things that I still
C D Love you too much to say
G Bm The sky was just a purple bruise
Am G G/C G The ground was iron
D And you fell all around the town
C G Until you looked the same
[Chorus:]
C C G B The same eyes, the same lips
Em C The same lie from your tongue trips
Horns: e||-------------|| B||-----------1-|| G||-------0-2---|| D||---0-2-------|| A||-3-----------|| E||-------------||
C Am C C/B Am D/F# G [Horns] Deep dark, deep dark truthful mirror
C Am C C/B Am D/F# G Deep dark, deep dark truthful mirror
C C G Bm Now the flagstone streets where the newspaper shouts
Am G G/C G Ring to the boots of roustabouts
D And you're never in any doubt
C D There's something happening somewhere
G Bm You chase down the road 'til your fingers bleed
Am G G/C G On a fiberglass tumbleweed
D You can blow around the town
C G But it all shuts down the same
[Chorus]
Bm Em So you bay for the boy in the tigerskin trunks
C C G C C G They set him up, set him up on a stool
Bm Em He falls down, he falls down like a drunk
C C G C C G And you drink till you drool
C Bm G And it's his story you'll flatter
C Bm G You'll stretch him out like a saint
C Bm Em But the canvas that he splattered
C D C#dim Will be the picture that you never paint
Em C G [Horns]
C Am C C/B Am D/F# G [Horns] Deep dark, deep dark truthful mirror
C Am C C/B Am D/F# G Deep dark, deep dark truthful mirror
G Bm A stripping puppet on a liquid stick
Am G Gets into it pretty thick
D A butterfly drinks a turtle's tears
C D But how do you know he really needs it
G Bm 'Cos a butterfly feeds on a dead monkey's hand
Am G Jesus wept, he felt abandoned
D You're spellbound, baby, there's no doubting that
(that's where it's at)
C D G Did you ever see a stare like a Persian cat
[Chorus]
