Elephant Ride (Difford/Tilbrook)
  Am               A      Am   A

Today is none of our concern

  Am               A      Am   A

Today is none of our concern

  Am               A      Am   A

Today is none of our concern

  A

That rewarding cigarette

     F#m                Dm     A

That burns slowly by the bed



Fills the room with mystery

     F#m         F

The apple ripens on the tree

     C#m               Bm (7th Fret)  (or a high E)

That protected seal of love

       G#m             Bm (2nd Fret)

Broken by the flame of fun

      A            Am

Lying back with Exodus

                      A

In the arms of lovers trust

  Am               A      Am   A

Today is none of our concern

  Am               A      Am   A

Today is none of our concern





E             E7

That romantic dance of light

         A              E

From the curtain broken night

                 E7

Shadows fall on mystery

A                F

Love has ripened here for me

         C#m         Bm (7th Fret)  (or a high E)

Stubbing out the cigarette

          G#m                Bm (2nd Fret)

I see the clothes beside the bed

  A                      Am

As the half light of the day

                         A

Pulls the sheet up once again

  Am               A      Am   A

Today is none of our concern

  Am               A      Am   A

Today is none of our concern



E

As the phone hangs by the cord

       Am               E

As the streets begin to fill



There's no distance anymore

           F#m              Dm

There's no wanting when you will

         C#m                  Bm (7th Fret)  (or high E)

We'll be sleeping through the day

        G#m             Bm (2nd Fret)

As the world around us turns

       A                  Am

As the phone hangs by the cord

                 A        Am   A

Today is none of our concern

                 A        Am   A

Today is none of our concern

                 A        Am   A

Today is none of our concern

   E

Today.
