A really good tab but some of the lyrics may be wrong(?)

verse 2:
"Ooh, my Adeline
I watch your morning swim again
Ooh, Kodachrome blue sky
Strokes from patch to warm patch
My sweet Adeline"

Bridge:
"She's a swim, swimmer
Swimmer, swimmer
Swim, swimmer
Swimmer, swimmer"

Again I really enjoy the tab and I'm really stoked that someone would put up a tab so quickly after the new albums release (I don't really have a date for when you put this tab up), but yeah, I really appreciate the tab! :)
