Elevator Operator

 

written by Gene Clark

 

E7
She was an elevator operator she had  her ups and downs

She got so high so very fast it took her all day to come down
G                 F#          F          E    E7
I'm gonna put you straight to her right now
G                   F#        F       E     E7
She's very busy but I'll explain somehow

Elevator operator elevator operator
E7
She was one of the girls that you make feel 

That you were up to stay 

But when you began to think it was real

She took you down all the way
G                 F#          F          E   E7
I'm gonna put you straight to her right now
G                      F#       F       E  E7 
I'm gonna have to get along without her now
