Motel Matches Elvis Costello Guitar Chords    

Motel Matches          Elvis Costello


NOTE: All notes in "()" are bass notes for the walk up and down in 
The intro and the main verse. Drag your feet when playing this song.
Always stay behind the beat except for the first two lines of the chorus.
In a full band situation, make sure everbody nails the three sharp notes
Before the chorus and the bass player can pull an optional (C) (B) (A)
down to the Am. (a la Bruce Thomas)

INTRO: C (C) (D) (E) F (F) (E) (D)
________________________________

C				      F
Somewhere in the distance I can hear "Who Shot Sam?"
G				    C
This is my conviction, that I am an innocent man
C	   (C) (D) (E) F
Though you say I'm     unkind
F
I'm being as nice as I can

Am
Boys everywhere, fumbling with the catches
Am                        F
I struck lucky with motel matches
G                         F
Falling for you without a second look
G			 F
Falling out of your open pocketbook
G          F               C
Giving you away like motel matches

C (C) (D) (E)  F (F) (E) (D)

C (REPEAT OF FIRST VERSE)
I wake with the siren in an emergency
Though your mind is full of love
In your eyes there is a vacancy
And you know what I'll do
When the light outside changes from red to blue

Chorus
