Coming Up For Air

  		Another song the Key of Tim... Dm! This one's been a live favourite for a  
year or two and  has finally made it to CD on the Thankyou EP. The C/E   
indicates that the chord is a C but the bass is inverting  it by playing 
the chord's 3rd (E) as the lowest note in the mix. The lead-in note to the 
second F chord in the chorus is an E, I've notated it as e->F.

Bridge: 
Bb     F 
Let it all out 
    C                      Dm

Bb         F            C

Fine wine in the freezer, some cat whining on the stereo 
 
Dm   C/E   F   G 
 
Dm          C/E    
Oh why did he leave her?  
F            G    Dm   C/E   F   G 
Because we're all fools 
   Dm           C/E                             F 
My hand on your back, where your wings would've been 
               G 
If you'd had a pair 
Dm          C/E         F    G 
Now I'm not aching for you anymore
