British Sea Power - Canvey Island
Tabbed by: Nasher (ns)

Canvey Island is a beautiful song. Someone has already done the chords on UG, but 
the chords are mostly wrong - so this is the correct version :)


Verse 1:

A         C#m             G#m
 H        5        N         1
A         C#m             G#m
 Killed a wild swan 
A         C#m             G#m
 It was a kind of omen
A         C#m             G#m
 Of everything to come 

Pre-Chorus:

F#m                         
 I can't believe it's happening 
G#m                                  
 And that it's happening now
F#m                           
I can't believe it's happening 
G#m                           
It's coming true somehow 

Verse 2:

On Canvey Island, 1953 
Many lives were lost 
With the records of a football team 

Pre-Chorus: 

I can't believe it's happening 
And that it's happening now 
I can't believe it's happening 
It's coming true somehow 

Chorus:

A                             
Don't you think it's strange, you know 
B                            G#m
The way it all works out 
A                                    B         G#m
Brace yourself for storms and Summer droughts, soooooooo

Pre-Chorus: (note - extra E chord)

F#m
Sometimes it's hard to tell 
E             G#m
If it's going well 
F#m
You know the odds against it
E             G#m
Were so phenomenal 

Chorus: 

I can't believe it's happening 
And that it's happening now 
I can't believe it's happening 
It's coming true somehow 
 
Chorus: (with distortion)

Don't you think it's strange, you know 
The way it all works out 
Brace yourself for storms and Summer droughts 

Don't you think it's strange, you know 
The way it all works out 
You start with everything then end without

E      G#m   E
Oh! 
C#m    B
Oh, oh! 
E      G#m   E
Ohhh...(etc.) 
C#m    B
Oh, oh! 

F#m
Oh it's happening now 
G#m
Oh it's happening now 
A
Oh... 
B
Oh...

Finish Chord: (lots of distortion)

E chord
