Blame It On Cain - Elvis Costello - Ukulele Chords

Big fan of Elvis Costello, and this is a pretty simple jam to play on a ukulele - Blame It On Cain, from his album My Aim Is True.



[G]Once upon a time, I had a little money.
Government burglars took it long before I could mail it to you.
Still, you are the [C7]only one.
Now I can't let it slip [G]away.
So if the [D] man with the ticker tape, he tries to take it,
[D7]well this is what I'm gonna say.

(CHORUS)
Blame it on [Em7]Cain. Don't blame it on [G]me.
Oh, oh, it's [C]nobody's [D]fault, but we [C]need somebody to [G]burn.

[G]Well if I was a saint with a silver cup
 and the money got low we could always heat it up or trade it [C7]in.
But then the radio to heaven will be [G]wired to your purse.
And then you can [D]run down the wave band, coast to coast, hand in hand.
[D7Bad to worse, curse for curse, don't be dissatis [C]fied.
So you're [D]not satis [G] fied.


Blame it on [Em7]Cain. Don't blame it on [G]me.
Oh, oh, it's [C]nobody's [D]fault, but we [C]need somebody to [G]burn.



[G]I think I've lived a little too long on the outskirts of town
I think I'm going insane from talking to myself for so [C7]long.
Oh but I've never been acc [G] used.
When they [D] step on your face, you wear that good look grin.
I gotta [D7 break out one weekend if I do somebody in.
But every single time I feel a little stronger,
They [C] tell me it's a crime. Well [D]how much longer?


Blame it on [Em7]Cain. Don't blame it on [G]me.
Oh, oh, it's [C]nobody's [D]fault, but we [C]need somebody to [G]burn.


Blame it on [Em7]Cain. Ohhhh Don't blame it on [G]me.
Oh, oh, it's [C]nobody's [D]fault, but it [C] just seems to be his [G] turn.
