Islands - Swans Life After Death tab

Swans (Life After Death)

intro: this can be played multiple ways and it sounds alright, but this is the way that
find sounds the best and is most convenient. some of the notes are played softer than
so listen to the song for timing(its fairly straight-forward). ive put larger spaces 
the timing skips a beat.

(Lyrics Taken From Disc Booklet) C swans, swans, swans sing songs F C all night long, who know how warm the islands were? C while the frogs look on F C F G its what the birds prefer, and it's still warm after the sun has gone Am F C G i woke up thirsty the day i died and the tide was swirling E Am Dm G E Am F G my mouth is so dry, and all i see is sea, two shining seas C swans, swans, swans sing songs F C all night long, who knew how warm the islands would be? C and who knew just how much the F C sky covers me, it makes you forget what it means to be free Am F C i climbed in through the blowhole, in the ribs i found you Am F G with a wick we lit a flame, now look at the smoke that it blew E Am Dm G E Am the mouth is so wide, yet all i see is sea and azure sky F G a little wave and ebb tide E Am F ladadada riff 1 this riff changes around a bit on certain parts when it repeats, but i play it like this whole time
