Bastille's "Oil On Water". Standard Tuning. Was this info helpful? Yes No
OIL ON WATER /// BASTILLE
By Hanna M | instagram @wildworldpilots

Standard tuning, no capo


[Intro]
E B B/A# G#m D#


[Verse 1]
        E                         B      
So her fingers ran away with themselves
B/A#   G#m            D#
'Till everything was documented
     E                    B    
Her mind it was reaching out
B/A# G#m                       D#
 To put into words what their bodies had done


[Chorus]
  E                B   
They lie together, oh
B/A#   G#m  E   D#
Oil on wa  -  ter
      E                B
And they lie upon her, oh
B/A#      G#m  E   D#
Someone's daugh - ter


[Verse 2]
        E                      B    
It's a catalogue of modern mistakes
B/A# G#m                      D#
Her words and legs wrapped around each man
          E                    B
Leaving stories like digital crumbs
B/A#    G#m                     D#
As she turns these nights into literature


[Chorus]
  E                B   
They lie together, oh
B/A#   G#m  E   D#
Oil on wa  -  ter
      E                B
And they lie upon her, oh
B/A#      G#m  E   D#
Someone's daugh - ter

E B B/A# G#m D#
E B B/A# G#m D#


[Verse 3]
           E                            B    
When they leave she sets about writing down
B/A#     G#m            D#
Awkward body games all over town
         E                         B
Warm affection runs through every word
B/A#   G#m                     D#
We're screens away but we're laughing with her


[Chorus]
  E                B   
They lie together, oh
B/A#   G#m  E   D#
Oil on wa  -  ter
      E                B
Ooh they lie upon her, oh
B/A#      G#m  E   D#
Someone's daugh - ter

   E                B
(They lie upon her, oh)
B/A#       G#m  E   D#
(Someone's daugh - ter)

Transpose +1 and play with capo 1 :)

That will not give you the standard tuning though. In order to play with capo in standard tuning you would have to transpose down - not up. For example, you can transpose -4 and put capo on 4. However, I agree that the song is much easier to play if you transpose +1, so for those who do not care about the tuning it is a good idea! :)
