VERSE 1:
Em     F#/G G               C              B
Tuesday at dawn Michael's glasses washed ashore
Em          F#/G  G       C          Em
with a styrofoam box and two broken oars.
Em                F#/G  G            C           B
He'd been digging for clams in the muddy swamp weeds
        Em        F#/G  G      C        Em
when he heard the salt water whisper to him,

CHORUS:
      C                     G
"Lie down, lie down in the dark rolling sea.
          D                       Am
When you get to the bottom we'll kiss you to sleep."
      C                     G
"Lie down, lie down in the dark rolling sea.
          D                       Em
When you get to the bottom we'll kiss you to sleep."

INTERLUDE:

VERSE 2:
Em            F#/G  G             C          B
Michael threw his glasses in the cold green water.
Em     F#/G   G         C         Em
Hermit crabs ran as he dove down under.
Em    F#/G   G    C             B
One of his shoes bobbed on the waves.
Em F#/G   G        C             Em
Seagulls circled 'til it finally sank.

CHORUS:
      C                     G
"Lie down, lie down in the dark rolling sea.
          D                       Am
When you get to the bottom we'll kiss you to sleep."
      C                     G
"Lie down, lie down in the dark rolling sea.
          D                       Em
When you get to the bottom we'll kiss you to sleep."
