Selling Rope Swan Dive To Estuary

	  		

Intro: C 

      F          Am      C            F             Am          C 
As I swan dive into the estuary, the birds do not flinch at my fall 
       F             G       Am              C         F             Dm     C 
They perch in the rafters, before, during, after: They do not notice me at all 


       F          Am      C             F        Am      C 
As I float down into the estuary, wind cases my body in cool 
    F            G              Am            C           F          Dm      C 
I smell petrol fumes, see the smoke rise in plumes: The earth is one big fireball 
      F          Dm      C 
The earth is one big fireball 


G    C 
Anecdote, lie 
G       C 
My own alibi 
F          G        C 
I've been telling jokes 
G      C 
Piled notes high 
G       C 
My own alibi 
F          G       C 
I've been selling rope 


   F            Am           C            F         Am        C 
As I break the film of the estuary, the seaweed submerges my form 
    F            G            Am         C            F         Dm         C 
No passing cars stop, not a single jaw drops, as my wallet and keys sink before 
    F           Dm          C 
A splash all I left in the world 


G    C 
Anecdote, lie 
G        C 
My own alibi 
F            G      C 
I've been telling jokes 
G      C 
Piled notes high 
G       C 
My own alibi 
F           G      C 
I've been selling rope 


      F       G            Am         C             F           Dm            C 
Once held a magpie in the palm of my hand and the blood in our veins flowed faster, as I'd planned 
       F             G          Am           C           F             Dm              C 
Got a heart full of love and a head full of more but a fist full of threads from the seams 
    F         Dm           C 
And I saw a smile in that beak 


G    C 
Anecdote, lie 
G        C 
My own alibi 
F            G      C 
I've been telling jokes 
G      C 
Piled notes high 
G       C 
My own alibi 
F           G      C 
I've been selling rope 


F           G               Am             C 
Oh I was a bird right then, one day I will be again 
F                  Dm                          C 
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you 
F           G               Am             C 
Oh I was a bird right then, one day I will be again 
F                  Dm                          C 
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you 

(at 3:59) C  Am x5 
(at 4:53) Dm  C x4 


F           G               Am             C 
Oh I was a bird right then, one day I will be again 
F                  Dm                          C 
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you 
F           G               Am             C 
Oh I was a bird right then, one day I will be again 
F                  Dm                          C 
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you 

            F                G 
There's no ticker-tape, no pearly gates 
     Am              C 
No carnival and no parade 
      F   Dm        C 
Just one, one for sorrow 
             F               G 
There's no ticker-tape, no pearly gates 
     Am              C 
No carnival and no parade 
      F   Dm        C 
Just one, one for sorrow
