Elvis Costello - Bullets For The New Born King chords

Chords
Transpose
This is quite a difficult song to play. You can just strum the chords if you want 
although it sounds better if you pick them.
Elvis may not play the bass notes since the song is played with a double bass and 
a guitar but if you pick each chord focusing on the
bass notes it sounds pretty good to me!
If you need any tips or help in playing it feel free to message me, enjoy :)




C C/B Am Am/G F F/E Dsus2No one looks in this place for motive or any hope
G C F Dsus2But for the dead shot of an amber glass, the blue light of a votive
C C/B Am Am/G F F/E Dsus2Rain obscured the window as the pain was dulled by the grains
G C F Dsus2Absolved by spoons in flames and fear in time dissolving
G G/A G/B C C/B Am Am/G F It's not for the faint of pulse or anybody false
Dsus2 G Gsus4 GThose amateurs who simply she'd their skins
G G/A G/B C C/B Am Am/G F Where are those traitors now, we once called patriots?
Dsus2 G Gsus4Just like those saints who seem to revel in their sins
C B Bb A GOh, my eyes were filled with tears that were stinging
C B Bb A GAfter our assassin's work was done
Am G F Em Dsus2The bells and hands were only there for the wringing
F C C/B Am Am/G F F/E Dsus2And we were bringing bullets for the new-born king
C C/B Am Am/G F F/E Dsus2The trumpet sound lamenting, tramping down the blooms of the deceased
G C F Dsus2The double agent girl and the fallen priest were heading for the border
C C/B Am Am/G F F/E Dsus2Somewhere in the high command, there stayed the palest hand
G C F Dsus2That saw the order countermand, erased a tape recorder
F CAnd then they hung him from a window cord
G G/A G/B C C/B Am Am/G F Swallow down that voodoo vial and stay your breath a while
Dsus2 G Gsus4 GBefore we spill the tale that we have spun
G G/A G/B C C/B Am Am/G F And now I shall confide all that I have denied
Dsus2 G Gsus4Oh, I'm so sorry for the things I've done
C B Bb A GOh, my eyes were filled with tears that were stinging
C B Bb A GAfter our assassin's work was done
Am G F Em Dsus2The bells and hands were only there for the wringing
F C C/B Am Am/G F F/E Dsus2And we were bringing bullets for the new-born king
