to standard concert pitch.

[Intro]

     Em    D        G     B

[Verse 1]
Em              D          G                    B7
    Out on the tar plains   ...the glides are moving,
Em         D           G             B
    All looking for a new place to drive,
Em                D        G              B7
    You sit be - side me,   ...so newly charming,
Em              D                G            B
    Sweating dewdrops glisten, fresh in your side!


[Chorus]
         G                       B7
And the sun drips down, bedding heavy behind,
     Em                         B7
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined,
           G              B                  Em            B
Then the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart!

    G     B       Em    B7       G     B        Em    B7

[Verse 2]
Em                D            G                  B7
    Way down the lane a way,      living for a - nother day,
Em                D            G              B
    The aphids swarm up in the   ...drifting haze,
Em                D                G                  B7
    Swim seagull in the sky to - wards that hollow western isle,
Em             D              G           B
    My envied Lady holds you fast in her gaze!


[Chorus]
         G                       B7
And the sun drips down, bedding heavy behind,
     Em                         B7
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined,
           G              B                  Em           B
Then the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart!


[Chorus]
          G                       B7
Then the sun drips down, bedding heavy behind,
     Em                         B7
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined,
            G             B                  Em           B     B7
Then the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart!

[Bridge]
C         C7/Bb          B              B7
    Sing------    blue silver-----!  |  /  /  /  /  |


[Verse 3]
     Em    D        G     B
||:  /  /  /  /  |  /  /  /  /  :|| [x2]

Em                 D           G                B7
    And watching lovers part,   ...I feel you smiling,
Em                 D               G            B
      What glass splinters lie so deep in your mind?
Em                 D
     To tear out from your eyes,
          G                  B7
With a thought to stiffen brooding lies,
Em                  D                   G          B
    And I'll only watch you leave me further be - hind!


[Chorus]
         G                       B7
And the sun drips down, bedding heavy behind,
     Em                         B7
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined,
           G               B                 Em            B    B7
Then the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart!


[Chorus]
          G                       B7
Then the sun drips down, bedding heavy behind,
     Em                         B7
The front of your dress, all shadowy lined,
            G             B                  Em            B    B7
Then the droning engine throbs in time with your beating heart!

C         C7/Bb           B             B7
    Sing------     blue silver-----! |  /  /  /  /  |
C         C7/Bb           B7
    Sing, sing---- blue silver-----! 


[Coda - Repeat]

******************************************************************
[Some versions have a sample of a narrator over parts of the coda,
taken from a natural history recording, talking about insects]

There's more to this kind of camouflage,
more than just ...colour and shape!

Who's crawling now, ...in the tall grass, near my tent?
