Verse 1:

	    G
	I looked in the sky where an elephant's eye
	     Am
	Was looking at me from a bubblegum tree
	     G
	And all that I knew was the hole in my shoe
	           Bb      Eb/Bb Bb
	Which was letting in water (letting in water)
	                                     (letting in water)

[repeat 4/4 section of intro]

Verse 2:

	I walked through a field that just wasn't real
	With one hundred tin soldiers which stood at my shoulder
	And all that I knew was the hole in my shoe
	Which was letting in water (letting in water)
	                                     (letting in water)

Bridge:

	(mellotron: E/Bb tritone, raised gradually to F#/C over 4 bars)

	F                Eb        C        [2X]
	/ / / /  / / / /  / / / /  / / / /

	(Narration: I climbed on the back of a giant albatross
	 What flew through a crack in the cloud
	 To a place where happiness reigned all year round
	 And music played ever so loudly)

	(mellotron: F#/C tritone, lowered gradually to E/Bb over 2 bars)

Verse 3:

	I started to fall and suddenly woke
	And the dew on the grass had soaked through my coat
	And all that I knew was the hole in my shoe
	Which was letting in water (letting in water)
	                                     (letting in water)

Coda:

	instrumental (w/wordless backup vocals) over B chord; fade out
	  and fade back in

-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
