THE DOLDRUMS
Written by Josh Pyke
Arrangement based on the solo performance
broadcast on PulverRadio May 26th 2005

4 beats per chord (cut time)        N.B. G-chord in VERSE aligned
` = 4 beats                        at start of measure but change
' = 2 beats                         actually occurs on Beat-2
(capo at second fret)


INTRO:  (From the re-start)
C  G  Am  `

C  G  Am  `

VERSE:
C            G           Am     `
  I couldn't tell you why__ I'm never feeling satis-
C                       G              Am    `
fied but every time the sun don't shine__ it makes me wanna run and
Dm/A          F
Hide from the songs in my

VERSE-LONG:
C                   G         Am       `
Head here comes the rain again__ she's comin' for to break the
C                        G            Am           `
Drought but she's such a cloudy friend__ and she's bringing forth the shadow of 
Dm/A           F                  Dm/A              F
Doubt ain't it funny how when you think that you've got it all figured

BRIDGE-SHORT:
G              `                     Am             C
Out that these things sometimes seem organised well in advance of
F         `
Me or the callings of my

LINK-1:
G    `          G                  `
Heart  na-na-na na-nah-nah-nah-nah-__nah-nah-ah-naah__

VERSE:
C                G           Am  `
__ so we hit the doldrums now__  sails hanging loose on the
C                     G           Am      `
Lines and we couldn't sink or swim__ just praying for a merciful
Dm/A           F
Tide with this song around my

VERSE-LONG:
C                G        Am     `
Neck lull of the afternoon__ and we've grown numb to the
C                G          Am        `
Feel so set navi-gation true__ then I rope myself to the
Dm/A          F                      Dm/A        F
Wheel on this dried out sea when you go well you go you go you

BRIDGE:
G            `                     Am             C
Go and these things sometimes seem organised well in advance of
F         `
Me or the callings of my
G           `               Am       C
Heart and I do believe that fatalism is complacen-
F           `
cy when you float your fears too
G           `             Am                C
Far but the moment that I take my leave I'm back up out that
F             `
Door so I can never rest assured__
