Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


When Im Up  Great Big Sea

I am the fo[F]untain of affec[C]tion
I'm the ins[F]trument of [Am]joy
to [F]keep the good time rolli[C]ng,
I'm the b[F]oy, I'm the b[G]oy
You know the worl[F]d could be our oyst[C]er
If you [F]put your trust in [Am]me
We'll k[F]eep the good times roll[C]ing wait and se[F]e, wait and se[G]e
Wait and[Am] see

There's exaltations, s[G]weet disintegrations
A fe[F]w discolorations then it comes alon[G]g
[Am]Up is why he chooses, the [G]kisses and the bruises
There ain't [F]nothing he refuses then it comes a[Am]long
It comes [F]along and I am lifte[C]d
It comes alo[F]ng and I am lifted   [C]
I[F] am lifted, I am l[G]ifted

(Chorus)
W[F]hen I'm up I can't get do[C]wn
Can't get [F]down can't get l[G]evel
W[F]hen I'm Up I can't get d[C]own
Get my[F] feet back on the gr[G]ound
W[F]hen I'm up I can't get do[C]wn
Can't get [F]down can't get l[G]evel
W[F]hen I'm Up I can't get d[C]own
Get my[F] feet back on the gr[G]ound

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
