Loudon Wainwright Iii – The Swimming Song chords

Chords:
Transpose:
[Verse 1]
GThis summer I went swimming
D EmThis summer I might have drowned
C EmBut I held my breath and I kicked my feet
C Dadd9 EmAnd I moved my arms around
C Dadd9 GI moved my arms around
[Verse 2]
GThis summer I swam in the ocean
D EmAnd I swam in a swimming pool
C EmSalt my wounds, chlorine my eyes
C Dadd9 EmI'm a self-destructive fool
C Dadd9 GI'm a self-destructive fool
[Verse 3]
GThis summer I swam in a public place
D EmAnd a reservoir, to boot
C EmAt the latter I was informal
C Dadd9 EmAt the former I wore my suit
C Dadd9 GI wore my swimming suit
[Verse 4]
GThis summer I did the backstroke
D EmAnd you know that that's not all
C EmI did the breast stroke and the butterfly
C Dadd9 EmAnd the old Australian crawl
C Dadd9 GThe old Australian crawl
[Verse 5]
GThis summer I did swan dives
D EmAnd jackknifes for you all
C EmAnd once when you weren't looking
C Dadd9 EmI did a cannonball
C Dadd9 GI did a cannonball
[Verse 6]
GThis summer I went swimming
D EmThis summer I might have drowned
C EmBut I held my breath and I kicked my feet
C Dadd9 EmAnd I moved my arms around
C Dadd9 GI moved my arms around
