Hi y'all,
Here's another catchy ditty from their early days:
---
"What For"  James
  C    F                    G          G
Today, I won't think of any sad things.
         C                F              G      G
Will not think of torture or the rape of nature.
     C      F                   G                G
Just today, I won't touch those sickening papers.
          C              F                  G             G
Will just let myself bet swept away by this beautiful day.

[Chorus:]
     	     C    F                      G
	What for, tell me, tell me, what for?
     	     C    F                      G
	What for, tell me, tell me, what for?

    C        F          G              G
The sunset tonight is beyond all words.
       C             F                 G
In the sky above the square, startling spirals dancing on air.

	[Chorus]
     [Solo]

       C                      F                   G     G
I will pass through the glass into air past those birds.
       C                 F               G         G
In the square, I am sun, I am sky in my mind's eye.
  C    F                G
Today, I will dive into foaming seas.
     C          F          G
Sick fish myself and some strange debris.

C                    F         G            G-G7-Am7
I would prefer to be anywhere away from here         (4x)

[Chorus]
       C                      F                   G     G
I will pass through the glass into air past those birds.
       C             F         G  G
In the square, I am sun, I am sky.

[Chorus]

[Whistle to end]
