Notes.
1.  This tape recording fits the period and the tonality of his voice and exactly what he would do, 
if he was relaxing at home with his acoustic guitar.  The songs are Tab Hunter's 'Young Love' from 
1957 and Patsy Cline's 'She's Got You' from 1961-62. Elvis was in Bad Nauheim, Germany for 18 months 
from 1958, which could have gone to 1960 - 61.  It is most probable, that he heard a pre-release of 
'She's Got You' and recorded them both at home.

Jimmie Standing In The Rain chords – Elvis Costello

 Mr. MacManus "fingerpicks" this song, though it can hardly be described this way since
all the strings are picked at once. I pick the bass string on each beat and occasionally
the off-beat to add some color, but the bass guitar does takes care of this in the
recording and Elvis audibly only really hits the bass once before the first chord of the song.

He uses four different diminished chords (as he is wont to do) in a couple different
positions. All the chords are tabbed at the bottom of the page. The song also has a very
jazzy rhythm which tends to stray from 4/4 from time to time because the song is so
lyric-based. It also makes it nearly impossible to play without having the recording as
 A  reference.

One last note, even though the chord seems to want to change from F#m to Gdim at the end
of the first few verses, it does not, and this keeps the song from becoming too
predictable as it would be with a consistently rising bass line. Probably a result of
T-Bone Burnett's masterful production. Or Elvis's songwriting for that matter. Not a bad pair.

*Lyrics from SongMeanings.com

 C#m 

Verse 1:
 C#m Gdim 
Third-class ticket in his pocket
 D#m Adim 
Punching out the shadows underneath the sockets
 C#m G# C#m 
Tweed coat turned up against the fog
...                             Ddim 
Slow coaches rolling o'er the moor
 F#m G# 
Between the very memory and approaches of war

Prehorus 1:
 C#m F#m 
Stale bread curling on a luncheon counter
 C#m F#m 
Loose change lonely, not the right amount

Chorus1:
 C#m F#m 
Forgotten man of an indifferent nation
 C#m F#m 
Waiting on a platform at a Lancashire station
 C#m Gdim 
Somebody's calling you again
 D#m Adim 
The sky is falling
...            C#m F#m 
Jimmie's standing in the rain

 C#m 

Verse 2:
 C#m Gdim 
Nobody wants to buy
 D#m Adim 
a counterfeited prairie lullaby
 C#m G# C#m 
    In a colliery town
...                          Ddim 
The hip flask and fumbled skein
 F#m G# 
Of some stage door Josephine is all he'll get now

Prechorus 2:
 C#m F#m 
Eyes going in and out of focus
 C#m F#m 
Mild and bitter from tuberculosis

Chorus 2:
 C#m F#m 
Forgotten man, indifferent nation
 C#m F#m 
Waiting on a platform at a Lancashire station
 C#m Gdim 
Somebody's calling you again
 D#m Adim 
The sky is falling
...            C#m F#m 
Jimmie's standing in the rain

 C#m F#m C#m 

Bridge:
 E 
Her soft breath was gentle on his neck
...  C#m G# C#m 
If he could choose the time to die
...       G# 
Then he would come and go like this
 C#m F#m C#m 
Underneath a painted sky
 E G#7/D# C#m 
She woke up and called him "Charlie" by mistake
...                                F#m C#m 
And then in shame began to cry
 E 
Tarnished silver band peels off a phrase
G#7/D#
And then warms their hands around the brazier

Chorus 3:
 C#m F#m 
Forgotten man, indifferent nation
 C#m F#m 
Waiting on a platform at a Lancashire station
 C#m Gdim 
Somebody's callin

Some things you never get used to, even though you're feeling like another man
          Bm D E  
There's nothing that he can do for you, to shut me away as you walk through
 Am   -    Am/C D Am   -   Am/C D  
Lovers laughing in their amateur hour, holding hands in the corridors of power

High  fidelity, can you hear me?  can you hear me?  can you hear me?

** Note - the intro really goes back and forth between an Am and Asus4 for each 
bass note, but with it's going to be hard with the moving bass notes.
