Canajoharie 
By They Might Be Giants
Transcribed by Duke



E         B                   A
In the overgrowth of the underbrush
                Am/C
Shown a fossil tooth which I must have dropped
E/B          B                 A                               F      B
very long ago which reminded me how we wound up where we are now

E                    B                A
Right through those trees, I'm not insane
                 Am/C
That's where we came into this place
E/B           B
and if you squint, if you squint your brain 
A                        F       B
I'll take my paints and try to paint

       E B/D#
Canajoharie
       A/C# E/B
Canajoharie

               F#m                          A 
Where a front flipper first evolved on the day 
                 F#m                      B
When a daring mudskipper dragged itself away

              E B/D#
Out of Canajoharie 
       A/C# E/B
Canajoharie 

              F#m                     A
Call me sentimental but I want to go back 
                       F#m                   B
And commemorate the place with a historical plaque 

E              B                      A
It's as if a fin, reaching from the swamp 
                  Am/C                 
Grabbed me by my arm, tried to pull me in 
E/B                B   
But my arm was strong 
                     A                         F      B
And the fin was an inaccurately reconstructed fake  

E                             B              A
It was right through those trees, I'm not insane 
                  Am/C
That's where the fin tried to drag me in 
E/B                 B
Don't look at me, look at where I'm pointing 
A                         F         B
Close your eyes, see what I see  

       E B/D#
Canajoharie 
       A/C# E/B
Canajoharie 

                    F#m                            A
I get the creeping feeling all my old friends are gone 
                    F#m                         B
And that this baby tooth no longer fits in my skull  

bridge:
G Am C Am C Am D B/D# B

E            B             A
If you can draw it in the air 
               Am/C
Or write it down, then you weren't there 
E/B
What's gone is mute 
B
Someone changed the truth 
A
They smoked the proof 
              F           B
And there's nothing left of

               F#m                         A
Where a front flipper first evolved on the day 
               F#m                       B
When a daring mudskipper dragged itself away  
               F#m                    B
Where a rocket ship experiment went awry 
               F#m                            B
When the prototype exploded on the launching site  

               E B/D#
