Gone Swimming

written by Mark Curry
as performed on the album "It's Only Time"
transcribed by Anand Kumar (

This is one of the best song I know so far. Besides it's very easy (at least the
rhythm guitar, singing simutaneously might be more difficult)!
The G is played at the 3rd fret and you slide into the F played at the first
fret, everytime you have a G followed by an F.
You really have to listen to the CD for the rhythm of the voice. I thought
about putting the chords right where they are sung, but somehow this made
the appearance of the file even worse, so I aligned them to the words, which
is not exactly the way they are sung, but much easier to visualize. You'll
get it anyway, I guess.

G   F   C   C
G   F   C   C
G                           F
Down by the Riverside, well there's a place for me
      C                           C
Where I won't sit and think about where I'd rather be
G                  F
and I don't need nothing
C                  C
but the look on my face
It's all bullshit
F(stop)                       D       C(stop)
It's just the time it takes between
                         G     D
where it comes and where it

You can go swimming, no sign of rainstorms or
thunder I won't be joining you
because today between the time it's taking
F                                      C(stop)
me to wonder I just might get sucked under

single note riff: g a# c d#^c

G F C C Down by the ocean, it's all behind me it's just an open sea, G F and I can really see for miles C C I wish I knew just what I was looking for G(stop) F(stop) D A pool of endless rhymes, I ain't talking 'bout the water C(stop) G D We're talking time, where it comes and where it yeah C F You can go swimming, there's been no warning of hurricane C or tidal wave, ain't no dangerous fish out there F I won't be joining you still C It's just a feeling in me I get washed out to the sea C(sus2) Yeah the sea D D Am Am fooling around with Dsus2, Dsus4, D D Am Am(stop) Am7 and Amsus2 sounds nice if you're playing alone (i.e. without band) D I wish I could go 'cause you know C that the water doesn't usually frighten me so F It's not the depth of the sea that infatuates me G It's what remains to be seen, like the time in between D F where it comes and where it goes D F C(stop) riff where it goes yeah G F Down in a creekbed in my old neighbourhood C C there is a trickle that's dirty and warm G F and I have spend many a childhood hour there C C It's where I used to play, seems like yesterday G F But I was younger then, just make believing C C making wishes and tossing pennies in G(stop) F(stop) and now I've grown, haven't changed my tone, D C F just getting stoned and ain't pretending that I know C F You can go swimming though it's only a trickle there C and the floodgates haven't worked for years F I won't be joining you, no, I wish I could go but I C F and I C F You can go swimming fade out... ____________________________________________________ Anand Kumar; "Asteroids do not concern me, Admiral..." - D.
