[Intro]
C

[Verse]
     F         Em       C            
As I swan dive into the estuary,
    F            Em           C 
the birds do not flinch at my fall

     F            Em       C               G       
They perch in the rafters, before, during, after: 
     Dm            F     C
they do not notice me at all

   F            Em       C             

As I float down into the estuary,
     F        Em      C   
wind cases my body in cool

  F            Em             C             G
I smell petrol fumes, see the smoke rise in plumes: 
    Dm           F       C
the earth is one big fireball

    Dm           F       C
the earth is one big fireball



[Chorus]
F   Dm      

Anecdote, lie
Am     G

My own alibi
F         Dm      C     G

I've been telling jokes
F     Dm

Piled notes high
Am     G

My own alibi
F         Dm      C        

I've been selling rope



[Verse]
   F           Em          C

As I break the film of the estuary, 
     F         Em         C
the seaweed submerges my form
           F    Em          C          G

No passing cars stop, not a single jaw drops, 
      Dm         F         C
as my wallet and keys sink before

  Dm           F           C
A splash all I left in the world



[Chorus]
F   Dm      

Anecdote, lie
Am     G

My own alibi
F         Dm      C     G

I've been telling jokes
F         Dm
Piled notes high
Am     G
My own alibi
F         Dm      C        

I've been selling rope



[Verse]
     F         Em         C          G
Once held a magpie in the palm of my hand 
        F            Em              C           G
and the blood in our veins flowed faster, as I'd planned

      F             Em         C            G
Got a heart full of love and a head full of more 
      Dm           F                C
but a fist full of threads from the seams

      Dm    F             C
And I saw a smile in that beak



[Chorus]
F   Dm      

Anecdote, lie
Am     G

My own alibi
F         Dm      C     G

I've been telling jokes
F     Dm
Piled notes high
Am      G

My own alibi
F         Dm      C     G   

I've been selling rope


F          Dm              Am              G

Oh I was a bird right then, one day I will be again

F              Dm                          C       G
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you
F          Dm              Am              G

Oh I was a bird right then, one day I will be again

F              Dm                          C     
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you

F              Dm                          C      G 
I've been telling jokes while selling rope to you

  F             Dm 
There's no ticker-tape, no pearly gate

   Am           G
No carnival and no parade

     F   Dm     C       G
Just one, one for sorrow
   F            Dm 
There's no ticker-tape, no pearly gate

   Am           G
No carnival and no parade

     F   Dm     C
Just one, one for sorrow
