Gaelic Storm
Swimmin' in the Sea
------------------------

Capo 1

G 320003
C x32010
D xx0232
Am x03320

The G - C D always hits with G on beat one, C on three, and D on four.
Let me know if the placeholder (-) or separator (|) is confusing/out of place.
I'm trying to keep things so people know where measures/chords are.

Intro (four times):
G - C D


     G     -   C D  |  G - C
When I was five
D    |   G    -    C D
We'd get up at four
    G         -          C        D     |  G - C D
And drive on down to the Cornwall shore
Am                       D
Our holidays had come at last
Am                             D
They came real slow and went by fast
G         -           C      D  |  G - C D
Just one week, that's all we had
     G       -         C       D   |  G - C D
Then back to work went mom and dad
Am         D                G - C D  |  G - C D
Happy to be swimmin' in the sea

    G     -       C D  |  G - C D
The seagulls yell
       G      -      C D
You're getting near
     G      -      C      D    |  G  - C D
We'd waited patiently all year
Am                         D
And we hadn't slept a wink all night
Am                         D
White faces in the morning light
  G      -       C      D     |  G - C D
I see the sea my sister cried
    G        -        C    D   |  G - C D
The seaside we'd soon be beside
Am         D                G - C D  |  G - C D
Happy to be swimmin' in the sea

     G      -     C D  |  G - C
Down to the sand
D     |  G      -       C    D
With our bucket and our spade
  G         -          C    D   |  G - C D
Behind our yellow wind barricade
Am                      D
We'd bury dad up to his chin
Am                           D
On with our trunks we'd jump right in
G          -       C      D    |  G - C D
'Round our waist a rubber ring
    G       -     C     D    |  G - C D
And on each arm a water wing
Am         D                G - C D  |  G - C D
Happy to be swimmin' in the sea

C       G
It's so cold
    Am      G
And rainin' too
     C        G
We'd stay all day
         Am          D
Till our lips turned blue
C      G
Only a week
Am        G
It wasn't fair

         Am  D    Am  D    Am  D
We're on holiday, holiday, holiday
        G     -    C D  |  G - C D
And we don't care!

[solo]
    (six times)
    G - C D
[solo end]

   G     -    C D  |  G - C
In every pool
D      | G      -    C D
Stranded by the tide
G             -        C       D   |  G - C D
Clams and fishes under seaweed hide
Am                               D
We'd catch them all in a fishing net
Am                               D
As close to heaven as a kid could get
     G           -          C      D     |  G - C D
We'd dream of smugglers and pirate ships
G               -         C      D    |  G - C D
Lunch was ice cream and a bag of chips
Am         D
Happy to be swimmin' in the sea

    G    -    C   D  |  G - C D
Now to kid of five
     G      -     C D
That rocky shore
      G           -         C         D   |  G - C D
Was a magical place full of tales and lore
Am                                 D
Now the seagulls call once more to me
Am                              D
Hey come on back to the Cornish Sea
    G      -     C      D   |  G - C D
Now by the water by the foam
     G         -           C     D    |  G - C D
Just one more week and I'm going home
Am         D
Happy to be 
Am         D
Happy to be 
Am         D                G  -  C D
Happy to be swimmin' in the sea

G - C D
