The Swimming Song
by Loudon Wainwright III

G
This summer I went swimming
Dsus2                      Em
THis summer I might have drowned
                               C
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet
       Dsus2          Em
And I moved my arms around.
 D7               G
I moved my arms around.

This summer I swam in the ocean
Swam in the swimming pool
Salt in my wounds, chlorine in my eyes,
I'm a self-destructive fool,
Self-destructive fool.



This summer I did the backstroke,
And you know that thats not all.
I did the breast stroke and the butterfly,
And the old Australian crawl,
The old Australian crawl.

This summer I swam in a public place and a reservoir to boot,
At the latter I was informal,
At the former I wore my suit,
I wore my swimming suit.



This summer I did swan dives and
Jack knives for you all.
And once when you weren't looking
I did a cannonball
I did a cannonball.

This summer I went swimming
THis summer I might have drowned
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet
And I moved my arms around.
I moved my arms around.

This is a great song with alot of banjo.  Sounds good to strum it at a good pace 
on and off
here and there.  I'll have a guitar friendly
tab comming soon for the banjo between the verses.
