Artist: Fountains of Wayne
Album:  Sky Full of Holes
Song:   A Dip in the Ocean
tabber: John Baer (eddiebauerman16@aol.com)
tabbed on 8/3/2011

*Note: This song has been preformed in the key of E by the band, but on the album 
it is in F, and that is how I've tabbed it here.

Intro: F 

Guitar 1 (intro riff):
  F                        Bb  (Let notes ring)
E-------------------------------|-----------|
B-11-11-11-10-------------------|--------11-|
G-------------12-10-------------|-----10----|(x2)
D-------------------12-10-------|--10-------|

Verse 1: 
F                    Bb                        F
It's you and me on a beach/ In nineteen-ninety eight
                 Bb               Dm          Bb       F
Leaning into the breeze/ From the willows and rivermen grace
    Am             Bb         F                        C
Are reborn in this place/ I'm assured the procedure is painless
F                   Bb                         F
The taxicab with no brakes/ around the mountain pass
                       Bb           Dm   Bb             F
Keep your head in your hands/ if anybody askes what you mean when
         Am        Bb              F                     C
You were picking a fight/ you were only complimenting the waitress

Chorus 1: 
          Am                    Bb 
Give us a room, with a mountain view:
       F             C      F           C         Bb
A tiny cabana by the water, yeah by the water and I,
                    C       F          Bb
Got a rental for an hour or two, for a ride up the coast
      C              F
And a dip in the ocean.

(Repeat Intro)

Verse 2: 
F                 Bb                      F
The waterfront is alight/ with Citronella flame
                      Bb              Dm   
Tourists flash in the night/ from the grottoes and 
Bb        F          Am        Bb           F
Gathering now on the heel-worn planks for a drunken
                C
Form another, a mumble (?)
F                   Bb                  F
And lovers paddle a boat/ on the molten bay
                     Bb          Dm
Peering into the the reeds/ on a ripple
    Bb         F          Am        Bb
And playing it cool/ in a bar by the pool
       F                  C
With a Caribbean Kiss Amaretto


Chorus 2: 
          Am                    Bb 
Give us a room, with a mountain view:
       F               C    F           C         Bb
A tiny cabana by the water, yeah by the water and I,
                    C       F          Bb
Got a rental for an hour or two, for a ride up the coast
      C              F
And a dip in the ocean.

(Repeat intro)

Bridge:
Am                Bb
Get a load of the light in the trees and the
F       C          F        C
Sweet decay on the maritime breeze
Dm                  C   Bb
The sun's hitching on a weather balloon 
         C
And the heat of the tarmac
G         C         F
Burning a hole in a gold afternoon

(Solo- variation on the intro/verse)

Chorus 3:
          Am                    Bb
Give us a room, with a mountain view:
       F            C       F           C         Bb
A tiny cabana by the water, yeah by the water and I,
                    C       F          Bb
Got a rental for an hour or two, and a bottle and cooler
          C          F   C     Bb
With some maps and a big brown towel
                   Am         Dm
It's a beater, but today will do
      Bb                       C              F
For a ride up the coast, and a dip in the ocean.

Outro:
F                 Bb        F    Bb
((repeat intro riff) In the ocean (x2)) 
F                    Bb    Dm   Bb      
((repeat intro riff) In the ocean (x2))

End: Fade out.

Cheers, and buy Sky Full of Holes!

The second line should read:

Leaning into the breeze/ From the willows and rhythm and grace
Are reborn in this place/ I'm assured the procedure is painless

Great lyric and great rhythmic chord changes :D
