The Swimming Song

	  		

(G D Em C D Em D G) 

G 
This summer I went swimming 
D                       Em 
This summer I might've drowned 
Em                         C 
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet 
D                      Em 
And I moved my arms around 
D                 G 
Moved my arms around 

This summer I swam in the ocean 
Then I swam in a swimming pool 
Salt my wounds, chlorine my eyes 
I'm a self-destructive fool 
A self-destructive fool 

(Banjo break) 

This summer I did the backstroke 
And you know that that's not all 
I did the breaststroke, and the butterfly 
And the old Australian crawl 
The old Australian crawl 

This summer I swam in a public place 
And a reservoir to boot 
At the latter I was informal 
at the former I wore my suit 
I wore my swimming suit 

(Banjo break) 

This summer I did swan-dives 
And jack-knives for you all 
And once when you weren't looking 
I did a cannonball 
I did a cannonball 

This summer I went swimming 
This summer I might've drowned 
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet 
And I moved my arms around 
Moved my arms around 

(Fiddle solo)
