Setting Up

Intro Riff (played quite fast with fingers, Mark Knopfler style): 

                                                         (play twice) 




Verse 1: 

A 
You say I'm the greatest, bound for glory 
				 E    
Well the word is out and I learned 
A 
I got the latest side of the story 
        G          D              A 
You're pulling out before you get burned 


Verse 2: 

A 
Well your hands are squeezing me, down to the bone 
                               E 
I never saw you breaking no law 
A 
Stands to reason I've got to leave you alone 
G          D         A 
 What you take me for 


Chorus: 

    A                              D 
Cos you're setting me up to put me down 
             E                        A 
You're just making me out to be your clown 
           A                        D 
You're just setting me up to put me down 
            E 
You better give it up (give it up), give it up 
                        A 
Quit your messing round 


Fills in Chorus: 

  You're setting me up 

      To put me down 

        You're just making me out 

  To be your clown 

(next four lines of Chorus, fills are exactly the same) 
             

Verse 3: 

A 
You think I care about your reaction 
                         E 
You think I don't understand 
A 
All you wanted was a piece of the action 
G         D                A 
Now you talk about another man
