Los Campesinos
[Intro]
C


[Verse]
     F         Em       C            
As I swan dive into the estuary,
    F            Em           C 
the birds do not flinch at my fall?
     F            Em       C               G       
They perch in the rafters, before, during, after: 
     Dm            F     C
they do not notice me at all?
   F            Em       C             ?
As I float down into the estuary,
     F        Em      C   
wind cases my body in cool
?  F            Em             C             G
I smell petrol fumes, see the smoke rise in plumes: 
    Dm           F       C
the earth is one big fireball?


[Chorus]
F   Dm      ?
Anecdote, lie
Am     G?
My own alibi
F         Dm      C     G
?I've been telling jokes
F     Dm
?Piled notes high
Am     G?
My own alibi
F         Dm      C        ?
I've been selling rope?


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


[Chorus]
F   Dm      
?Anecdote, lie
Am     G?
My own alibi
F         Dm      C     G
?I've been telling jokes
F         Dm
Piled notes high
Am     G
My own alibi
F         Dm      C        ?
I've been selling rope?


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


[Chorus]
F   Dm      ?
Anecdote, lie
Am     G?
My own alibi
F         Dm      C     G?
I've been telling jokes
F     Dm
Piled notes high
Am      G?
My own alibi
F         Dm      C     G   ?
I've been selling rope?
F          Dm              Am              G?
Oh I was a bird right then, one day I will be again?
F              Dm                          C       G
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you
F          Dm              Am              G?
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


[Instrumental]

Am C
F Dm C


[Chorus]
F          Dm              Am               G
Oh I was a bird right then, one day I will be again
?F              Dm                          C       G
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you
F          Dm              Am               G
Oh I was a bird right then, one day I will be again?
F              Dm                          C      G 
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you
  F             Dm 
There's no ticker-tape, no pearly gate?
   Am           G
No carnival and no parade
?     F   Dm     C       G
Just one, one for sorrow
   F            Dm 
There's no ticker-tape, no pearly gate?
   Am           G
No carnival and no parade
?     F   Dm     C
Just one, one for sorrow
