When I'm Up (I Can't Get Down)
By Great Big Sea
Chords transcribed by Barry O'Brien

           F              C
I am the fountain of affection
           F          Am
I'm the instrument of joy
   F                       C
to keep the good time rolling,
         F            G
I'm the boy, I'm the boy
                 F                  C
You know the world could be our oyster
       F                 Am
If you put your trust in me
       F                      C              F             G
We'll keep the good times rolling wait and see, wait and see
        Am
Wait and see

                      G
There's exaltations, sweet disintegrations
    F                                  G
A few discolorations then it comes along
Am                        G
Up is why he chooses, the kisses and the bruises
            F                                 Am
There ain't nothing he refuses then it comes along
         F                   C
It comes along and I am lifted 
            F                    C
It comes along and I am lifted
 F                 G
I am lifted, I am lifted

(Chorus)
 F                        C
When I'm up I can't get down 
          F               G
Can't get down can't get level
 F                       C
When I'm Up I can't get down
      F                   G
Get my feet back on the ground
 F                        C
When I'm up I can't get down 
          F               G
Can't get down can't get level
 F                       C
When I'm Up I can't get down
      F                   G
Get my feet back on the ground  

He just needs something to bind him
Something to wind him up
It won't take long to find him
When it comes on strong

Black skies a grinning, street lights are spinning
The night is just beginning, when it comes on strong
It comes on strong, and I am lifted
It comes on strong, and I am lifted
I am lifted, I am lifted

(Chorus)

Oh it comes on strong, and I am lifted.
It comes on strong, and I am lifted.
I am lifted, I am lifted!

(Chorus)

Oh I can't get down,
Oh Oh Ohhhhhhhh
I can't get down
