Tabbed by: Richard Antbring
Mail: pm me for it

Verse 1:

A         C#m             G#
 H        5        N         1
A          C#m          G#
 Killed a wild swan 
A             C#m      G#   
 It was a kind of omen
A             C#m         G#  
 Of everything to come 
Bm                          
 I can't believe it's happening 
C#m                                   
 And that it's happening now
Bm                           
I can't believe it's happening 
C#m                          
It's coming true somehow 

Verse 2: (same as Verse 1)

On Canvey Island, 1953 
Many lives were lost 
With the records of a football team 
I can't believe it's happening 
And that it's happening now 
I can't believe it's happening 
It's coming true somehow 

Chorus:

C#m                             D#m
Don't you think it's strange, you know 
C#m                             D#m
The way it all works out 
C#m                          D#m                              C#m               D#m
Brace yourself for storms and Summer droughts, soooooooo

Verse 3: (same as Verse 1)

Sometimes it's hard to tell 
If it's going well 
You know the odds against it
Were so phenomenal 
I can't believe it's happening 
And that it's happening now 
I can't believe it's happening 
It's coming true somehow 
 
Chorus: (same)

Don't you think it's strange, you know 
The way it all works out 
Brace yourself for storms and Summer droughts 

Don't you think it's strange, you know 
The way it all works out 
You start with everything then end without

F      F# F
Oh! 
F      F# F 
Oh, oh! 
C   A   F#
Ohhh...(etc.) 

C
Oh it's happening now 
A
Oh it's happening now 
F#
Oh...

Possibly, I'm trying Open the Door. I know the verses, but haven't figured out the chorus.

Note also that some the chord placements on each row have changed when I submitted it. I guess it's pretty easy to hear
when to change chords though
