E B E
So this is where he came to hide
E B E
When he ran from you
E
In a private detective overcoat
F#m
And dirty dead men's shoes

E B E
The pretty things of Knightsbridge
E B E
Lying for of Minister of State
E
Are a far cry from the nod and wink
F#m
Here at Traitors' Gate

G#m C#m
'Cause the high heel he used to be has been ground down
F#sus4
And he listens for the footsteps
E/B B7
That would follow him around

E F#m G#m E
To murder - my love - is a crime
F#m G#m A F#/A# Bsus4 G#/ C#m A E
But will you still love - a man out of time

E B E
There's a tupenny ha'ppenny millionaire
E B E
Looking for a fourpenny one
E
With a tight grip on the short hairs
F#m
Of the public imagination

E B E
But for his private wife and kids somehow
E B E
Real life becomes a rumour
E
Days of Dutch courage, just three French letters
F#m
And a German sense of humor

G#m C#m
He's got a mind like a sewer and a heart like a fridge
F#sus4
He stands to be insulted
E/B B7
And he pays for the privilege

E F#m G#m E
To murder - my love - is a crime
F#m G#m A F#/A# Bsus4 G#/ C#m A E
But will you still love - a man out of time

E B E
The biggest wheels of industry
E B E
Retire sharp and short
E
And after the dinner overtures
F#m
Are nothing but an afterthought

E B E
Somebody's creeping in the kitchen
E B E
There's a reputation to be made
E
Whose nerves are always on the knife's edge
F#m
And who's up late polishing the blade

G#m C#m
Love is always scarpering or cowering or fawning
F#sus4
You drink yourself insensitive
E/B B7
And hate yourself in the morning

E F#m G#m E
To murder - my love - is a crime
F#m G#m A F#/A# Bsus4 G#/ C#m A E
But will you still love - a man out of time
