[Verse 1]
A           Asus2                A
A daydream spills from my corked head
Asus2            F#m
Breaks free of my wooden neck
D                Dm
Left to nod over sleeping waves
A            Asus2           A
Like bobbing bait for bathing cod
Asus2              F#m
Floating flocks of candled swans
D              Dm
Slowly drift across wax ponds

[Chorus]
A           F#m               C#m             F#m
The men all played along to marching drums
              C#m           A           E
And, boy, did they have fun, behind the sea
They sang, (hey!)
A      F#m               C#m               F#m
So our matching legs are marching clocks
          C#m          A           E
And we're all too small to talk to God
            A           F#m         E
Yes, we're all too smart to talk to God

[Verse 2]
A         Asus2              A               Asus2
Toast the fine folks casting silver crumbs
               F#m
To us from the dock
D                     Dm
Jinxed things ringing as they leak
A            Asus2              A
Through tiny cracks in the boardwalk
Asus2               F#m
Scarecrow, now it's time to hatch
D                   Dm
Sprouting suns and ageless daughters
A               Asus2
Don't you know, don't you know
           Em
That those watermelon smiles
Bm           A        E
Just can't ripen underwater
Bm           A        E
Just can't ripen underwater?

[Chorus]
A           F#m              C#m              F#m
The men all played along to marching drums
              C#m           A           E
And, boy, did they have fun, behind the sea

They sang, (hey!)
A       F#m              C#m               F#m
So our matching legs are marching clocks
          C#m          A           E
And we're all too small to talk to God
           A            F#m         E
Yes, we're all too smart to talk to God
          A            F#m         E
Oh, we're all too smart to talk to God

[Bridge]
A
Oh, legs of wood waves

Waves of wooden legs (yeah!)
C#m
Waves of wooden legs
A
Legs of wood waves

Waves of wooden legs
C#m
Waves of wooden legs
A
Legs of wood waves

Waves of wooden legs
C#m
Waves of wooden legs

Legs of wood waves

Waves of wooden legs

Glad there's finally a good no-capo version of it, though I wish it was meant as the alternative version (there isn't too much difference in the normal versus alt though!)
