           Night - swimming...
|G                 C9       A9*     |
deserves  a quiet  night.
|C9                D                |
                                The..
|G                 C9       D       |
 photograph on the dashboard,
|G                 C9       A9*     |
 taken    years   ago,
|C9                           D                   |
 turned around backwards so the windshield shows.
|G                 C9       D       |
 Every streetlight        reveals the
|G                 C9       A9*     |
 picture   in   re-verse.
|C9                D                |
 Still it's so much clearer.
|G                 C9       D       |
 I  forgot  my     shirt  at the
|G                 C9      A9*      |
 water's edge. The moon is low  to-
|C9                D                |
-night.

[Intro] (x1)
|G       C9       |

Verse 2:
|G                 C9       D       |
           Night - swimming...
|G                 C9       A9*     |
deserves  a quiet  night.       I’m
|C9                D                |
 not sure all these people   under-
|G                 C9       D       |
-stand.       It’s not like years
|G                 C9       A9*     |
ago.           The fear  of getting
|C9                D                |
 caught,        of recklessness and
|G                 C9       D       |
 water.       They cannot   see me
|G                 C9       A9*     |
 naked.      These things   they go
|C9                D                |
away,            replaced  by  every(day).

Verse 3:
|G                 C9       D       |
-day.      Night - swimming...
|G                 C9       A9*     |
remembering  that  night.       Sep-
|C9                D                |
-tember's  coming  soon.        I'm
|G                 C9       D       |
 pining  for  the  moon.        And
|G                  C9      A9*     |
 what if there were two     side by
|C9                D                |
 side in orbit    around the fairest
|G                 C9       D       |
 sun?         That bright, tight for-
|G                 C9       A9*     |
-ever drum cannot describe    night-
|C9                D                |
 swimming.

Verse 4:
|G                 C9       D       |
 You, I thought I  knew you.
|G                 C9       A9*     |
 You,  I  can-not  judge.
|C9                 D                  |
 You, I thought you knew me. This one’s
|G                 C9       D       |
 laughing    quiet-ly         under-
|G                 C9       A9*     |
-neath  my breath.            Night-
|C9                D                |
 swimming.

 streetlight a reminder. Night-

Notes:
I found the previous tab hard to follow and played around with the chords 
a little to get the rhythm down first. In doing so, I discovered that by 
simply removing the A note off the C chord it sounded closer to the song.
Then, by changing the C to a Cadd9 and doing the same thing, song became
extremely simple to play and still sounds great (on my guitar, actually
better this way, to me). Thus creating the "Aadd9" (A9*) for lack of a name.
(Sure you'll let me know the real chord)

I show the basic Intro and Verse progressions above. I suggest just
strumming until you get the rhythm down as it's not a very complicated
song. Then by adding in base lines especially on the G chords, and using
some middle string strumming you can make things a bit more interesting.
Anyways, I love this song and give thanks and credit to for the original
post. If you're looking, this is a great acoustic solo-artist song.

(Hopefully, this version works with formatting, else I give up - sorry for the previous one)

Good luck, have fun!

Your Aadd9 is a A7sus4! jst thaught i'd let you know! nice tab though works very well! If you ever get stuck with chord names try this site http://chordfind.com/ It lets you put in the tabs for a chord then it tells you what it's called if it has a name! = )

thanks for the chord name tip (just added it to favorites). really, i was just trying to keep things simple. i wasn't really even sure if the "Cadd9" everyone throws around was correct (just checked your link and it is, so cool), but i wanted to stress in my naming that the "A" chord i made up was based directly off that one. i can update tabs i've submitted. do you think the correct name is more affective here or does the "A9*" get the message across? (the later is easier to put in the tab as room is limited - I guess I could go with "A7s4" w/o a major rework). regardless thanks for being constructively critical. on that note, "thought" is spelled with an "o" not an "a". you can look that up at websters.com (just kidding)
