Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Nature Boy

Intro:   Am  G  D  x2

VERSE
Am                                                      
I was just a boy when I'd sit down 
                   D
and watch the news on TV...
Am
I saw some ordinary slaughter, 
              D
I saw some routine atrocity,
Am
My father said, "Don't look away, 
                         D
you've got to be strong, You've got to be bold now,"
Am
He said that in the end it is beauty 
                 D
that is going to save the world now,

CHORUS
C           G                  D
And she moves, among the sparrows...
C           G                D
And she floats upon the breeze...
C           G                D
And she moves among the flowers...
C           G           D
And she moves something deep inside of me.

VERSE
I was walking around the flower show like a leopard 
coming down with some kind of nervous hysteria,
I saw you standing there, green eyes, black hair, 
up against the pink and purple wisteria,
You said "Hey nature boy, you lookin' at me 
with some unrighteous intention?"
My knees went weak, I couldn't speak, I was having thoughts 
that were not in my best interest to mention...

CHORUS
C           G                  D
And she moves, among the sparrows...
C           G                D
And she floats upon the breeze...
C           G                D
And she moves among the flowers...
C           G           D
And she moves me with just one little look.

VERSE
You take me back to your place and dress me up 
in your deep sea diver's suit,
You played the patriot, you raise the flag, 
and I stood in full salute,
Later on we smoked a pipe, you struck me dumb 
and made it impossible to speak,
as you closed in, in slow motion, 
quoting Sappho in the original greek,

CHORUS
And she moves, among the shadows...
And she floats upon the breeze...
And she moves, among the candles...
And we move through the days and through the years.

VERSE
The years pass by, we walk 
by the sea half delirious,
You smiled at me and said "Babe, I think 
this thing is getting kind of serious,"
You pointed at something and said 
"Have you ever seen such a beautiful thing?"
And it was then that I broke down, 
it was then you lifted me up again,

CHORUS
And she moves, among the sparrows...
And she walks across the sea...
And she moves among the flowers...
And she moves something deep inside of me.

And she moves, among the sparrows...
And she floats upon the breeze...
And she moves among the flowers...
And she moves something deep right up close to me.
