Here are a few more chord charts (not really TAB after all)
for some Elvis Costello songs.

Don't forget to use a single spaced font for this!

Please let me know if there are any errors, corrections, and so on.

Chords from the songbook, mostly

Human Hands
By Elvis Costello
>From the album: Imperial Bedroom

C#dim   = XX2323

Dsus4    F6

G                                           D
I've been talking to the wall and it's been answering me
Em         B
Oh darling how I miss you
    C                          G
I'm just the mere shadow of my former selfishness
Am7                    D
I crave the silhouette of your kiss
     G                          D
With only the blue light of the TV on
Em                      B
Lip reading threats and false alarms
              C                       G
There's a boy somewhere holding hands with himself
      Am7                     D
And a girl in a window on the Reeperbarn

    C             C#dim            G          B
Whenever I put my foot in my mouth and you begin to doubt
Em                     A
That it's you that I'm dreaming about
     Cm                    C
Do I have to draw you a diagram?
    C#dim       G               Am                    Em
All I ever want is just to fall into your human hands

G                                D
With the kings and queens of the dance hall craze
Em                       B
Checkmate in three moves in your heyday
        C                          G
But the girls don't listen to your line anymore
Am7                D
Now you're part of someone else

       G                     D                     Em
On the factory floor and you still say "Wheres the action?"
        B                C
Now you manufacture happiness
             G                               D
And get sold on the cheap for someone's satisfaction


G                        D
All you toy soldiers and scaremongers
Em                           B
Are you living in this world sometimes I wonder
     C                   G                 Am7                   D
In between saying you've seen too much and saying you've seen it all

G                     D
Tighter and tighter I hold you tightly
You know I love you more than slightly
         G          Am7               D
Although I've never said it like this before
