This is a great song, and it's realy easy to play: check it out.
You may need to put a capo somewhere to play along with the album.

G                          D
   Up to my ears in bitter tears
Can't believe ive sunk this low
      C                 D 
As I walk the planktom, Inner sanctum
G                           D
Got outta dodge, sailed on a Bonless Bon Voyage
You said North, I headed south, 
             C                         D
tossed overboard, Good lord thats a really large mouth


Em       D            C           D
   I'm sleepin' with fishes here
(In the Belly of the Whale)
Em       D            C           D
   I'm highly nutritious here
(In the Belly of the Whale)
Em       D            C           D
   Bad food, Lousy atmosphere
(I don't wanna bellyache)
Em       D            C
   How long is this gonna take?

G                          D
   Woke up this morning kinda blue
Thinkin' throught that age old question
      C         D 
How to exit a whale's digestion
G                               D
    It might behoove me to be heaved
Head out like a human comet 
             C                    D
(hmm, i wonder what rythmes with comet)

Em       D            C           D
   I'm sleepin' with fishes here
D                     Em
(In the Belly of the Whale)
Em       D            C           D
   They say i'm delicious here
(In the Belly of the Whale)
Em       D            C           D
   Lord please make him chuck it all
           (Its a gut call)
Em       D            C       D
   In the belly of the whale 
(I'm in the belly)

(same chords as the chorus)
In the belly of the whale
It's an underwater jail
It's a tight squeeze
It's a-gettin to me but its roomier than the tail

Hey sailor let me flow free
like a salmon to the sea
from the L.A symphany
I'm a 

Paddle-Boat Paddling in their wake
Fake freestyler
but my unemployment pays
im avoiding cliches like

Whale of a tale and
you cant keep a good man down
cos u cant, cos a been there man

To get thee proper chords for this song you need to have the capo on the 7th fret, it might be easier just to transpose this to the correct key than use a capo.
