Capo 4

G6: 302003

Verse : G  G6
Chorus: Am  C  G

   G
We sailed away on a winter's day
     G6
With fate as malleable as clay
    G
But ships are fallible, I say
        G6
And the nautical, as all things, fades
      G
And I do recall our caravel
  G6
A little wicker beetle shell
     G
With four fine maste and lateen sails
     G6
It's bearings on Cair Paravel

Am     C
Oh, my love
             G
Oh, it was a funny little thing
Am        C       G
To be the ones to see

    G
The sight of bridges and balloons
      G6
Makes calm canaries irritable
    G
And they caw and claw all afternoon
G6
Catenaries and dirigibles
G
Brace and boil the living room
  G6
A loom of metals warp woof wimble
      G
And a thimble's worth of milky moon
    G6
Can beat hearts larger than a thimble

Am     C
Oh, my love
             G
Oh, it was a funny little thing
Am        C          G
To be the ones to've seen

Am     C
Oh, my love
             G
Oh, it was a funny little thing (funny, funny, little, little...)
Am  C  G
