Capo
novice
1st fret
Standard tuning, capo on the first fret. All chords relative to capo.

I've watched several videos of the Weakerthans playing this. Live they play it in D, capo 3, which is the 
same key, but they use really odd chord voicings. This will sound very close, but not 100%.

E5 - x799xx
E/Eb - x699xx

[Verse]

E
Just one more drink and then I 
N.C.
should be on my way home.
N.C.
I'm not entirely sure 
                      E
what you're talking about.
                        B
I've had a really nice time, 
    A                   E
but my dogs need to be fed.
                              B
I must say that in the right light, 
     A   
you look like Shackelton.

[Chorus]

E              B   
Comment allez-vous ce soir?
    A                  E
Je suis comme ci comme ca.
                 B      
Yes, a penguin taught me French 
     A          E
back in Antarctica.

[Verse]

E
Oh, I could show you the way 
N.C.
shadows colonize snow.
N.C.
Ice breaking up on the bay 
                  E
off the Lassiter coast.
                        B
Light falling over the pole 
    A               E
as every longitude leads 
                        B
up to your frostbitten feet.
A  
Oh, you're very sweet, 

[Chorus]

E                  B
thank you for the flowers 
         A           E
and the book by Derrida,
               B               A           E
but I must be getting back to dear Antarctica.

[Bridge]

C#m                            A
......Say, do you have a ship,  
                     B
and a dozen able men 
                               E          
that maybe you could lend me?
              E
Oh, Antarctica 
              E  A
Oh, Antarctica 
              E  A
Oh, Antarctica ...... Oh, Antarctica
