E                   D               A
the day I turned my back on all you people

E         D             A
I felt an itching in my thumbs.

C#m             E7                 F#m           B7
salt air like a broadcast from the distant, dark beyond

A       D              A (Bbmaj7/A) A
when my transformation comes.

E       D                     A
I went down to the warm, warm water
E        D           A
   saw a pelican fly past
C#m               E7               F#m            B7
waved once at the highway and then left all that behind me
A       D              A (Bbmaj7/A) A
I went wading through the grass.

Bm             Bbmaj7         Amaj7
and no one was gonna come and get me.

Bm             Bbmaj7      Amaj7
there wasn't anybody gonna know.

F#m           D                C#7                F#m
even though I leave a trail of burnt things in my wake

A         D             A  (Bbmaj7/A) A
every single place I go.


E       D                     A
and it was cool, and it was quiet
E        D              A
in the humid marsh down there.
C#m           E7            F#m                  B7
    i let my head sink down beneath the brackish water,
A        D              A (Bbmaj7/A) A
felt it gumming up my hair.

E                   D         A
the sun was sinking into the atlantic
E                     D                 A
the last time that I turned my back on you.
   C#m            E7            F#m              B7
I tried to summon up a little prayer as I went under
A            D                 A (Bbmaj7/A) A
  it was the best that I could do.

and I said,
E              D                     A
"let them all fare better than your servant",
E             D               A
the reeds all pricking at my skin.
       C#m                E7             F#m                 B7
"here's hoping they have better luck than i had down here with you"
A       D              A (Bbmaj7/A) A
all that water rushing in.

E D A 
End on A
