        SWALLOWS OF SAN JUAN – Alejandro Escovedo
Tabbed by: eboswald
Tuning: Standard Capo on 2

Gonna {G} crawl upon the shore          {C}     {D}
Roll in the {G} mud and the clay        (C)     (D)
Like the {G} swallows of San Juan
I’m gonna get {C} back {D} some day     {G}     {C}     {D}

A thousand steps to the water
A thousand steps you must take
There’s a thousand worlds on the head of a pin
A thousand rules to break

{Em }Next time you see me
I’m gonna {Bm} smile for the camera
Like some {C} wild man from Pom{G}peii
{Em} Take my word, go {Bm} down to the sea
It’s {C} breaking bigger than anything any of us have ever seen

Repeat 1st verse

Instrumental verse

Had a blond TV special*
And an English half stack**
I lost the both in a deal
But some day, some day I’ll get them back

Repeat chorus

Repeat Verse 1 (fade out on repeating last line)

* a Gibson circa 1955 - 1961
** a Marshall half stack or a Vox?
