          A NERVOUS TIC MOTION OF THE HEAD TO THE LEFT - Andrew Bird
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ridcullylives
Email: popohau1@comcast.net

Tuning: Standard

INTRO:

Dm
Over prescribed
G
Under the mister
C      C/B
We had survived to
A7
Turn on the history channel
Dm                   G
And ask our esteemed panel
           C
Why are we alive
    C/B               A7
And here's how they replied
Dm                                      G
You're what happens when two substances collide
       Dm               G                Am
And by all accounts you really should've died

E Am

(with Riff 1)
Am C/G Gm F E


VERSE:

Am                   C/G
Stretched out on the tarmac
Gm                 F              E
Six miles south of North Platte
Am                C/G
He can't stand to look back
Gm                 F         E
At sixteen tons of HazMat


PRE-CHORUS:
              Am
And it's what goes
B     E
Undelivered
A   D    Gm Gm/F E
Undelivered


CHORUS:
           Am                        C/G                 Gm
And it's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left
                                 F
It's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left
                    E
Of the what? Of the head to the left
Am                      C/G            Gm
Exercise yourself 'till you're bereft
                                        F
'Cause it's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left
                  E
Of the...of the...to the...

(Riff 1)

(verse and prechorus same chords second time)

VERSE:

Splayed out on a bathmat
Six miles north of South Platte
And he just wants his life back
What's in that paper knapsack


PRE-CHORUS:

It's what goes
Undelivered
Undelivered

Am                               C/G               Gm
It's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left
              F             E
A nervous tic motion of the head

(Riff 1 x2 w/ improv vocals)


OUTRO:
Dm
Over imbibed
G
Under the mister
C      C/B
Barely alive we
A7                    Dm
Cover the blisters in flannel
                              G
Though the words we speak are banal
                    C
Not one of them's a lie
    C/B             A7
Not one of them's a lie
            Dm
You're what happens when
               G
Two substances collide
           Dm
And by all accounts
                     Am
You really should've died

Riff 1: (in case any of you don't have Mr. Bird's whistling skills and would rather play 
on guitar)

       Am             C/G                Gm                       F        E
