Circumstantial Evidence (song)

Hear the version from 'Circumstantial Evidence" (the CD):
/E      /E        /A           /Ami
  Just because I'm wobbly on my pins
/E       /E             /A                /Ami
  doesn't mean I've been drinking too much gin.
/E        /E      /A               /C
  It might be that I can't walk the line.
/E        /E   /A             /C
  It might be I smell of cheap wine.
/E        /E       /A             /C
  But it's all just circumstantial evidence.
/B              /B     /C         /B
Who're you gonna trust, me or your senses?

Just because there's powder on my nose
doesn't give you the right to suppose.
Maybe just I had a powdered sugar doughnut—
Or something else, there's no way you can know what.
'Cause it's all just circumstantial evidence.
Who're you gonna trust, me or your senses?

Just because I smell a bit of smoke,
That doesn't mean I've had a little toke.
Maybe I just passed a conflageration,
So don't accuse me of intoxication.
'Cause it's all just circumstantial evidence.
Who're you gonna trust?

Some notes:

The A minors and Cs in the first five lines come in a half-beat early.

In the final line of each verse the timing is as follows. " marks the beat, ' the half beat, and a '.' means play staccato.

. .  .
B B  B    CC B
"'"'/"'"'/"'"'/"'"'

Each verse begins with an ascending bass line in the piano or bass part:

x C#D D#  E
" ' " ' / " ' " ' /

while the guitar plays a descending line:

x A#A G   E
" ' " ' / " ' " ' /

(the E marks the beginning of the verse.)
