Sinkin Soon  Norah Jones



E|:------7----|------7----:| x8 (continue playing this rythm)
We're an [Em]oyster cracker [Em]on the stew
And the [Em]honey in the [Em]tea
We're the [D7]sugar cubes, [D7]one lump or two,
C7 B7 (/C7/D7 slide)
In the black coffee,
The [Em]golden crust on an [Em]apple pie,
That [Em]shines in the sun at [Em]noon,
We're a [D7]wheel of cheese [D7]high in the sky,
D7 C7 D7 B7 Em *
But we're gonna be sinkin' soon.

Piano Solo...

Em (x3)

In a [Em]boat that's built of [Em]sticks and hay,
We [Em]drifted from the [Em]shore,
With a [D7]captain who's [D7]too proud to say,
C7 B7 (/C7/D7 slide)
That he dropped the oar,
Now a [Em]tiny hole has [Em]sprung a leak,
[Em]In this cheap pon[Em]toon,
Now the [D7]hull has started [D7]growing weak,
D7 C7 D7 B7 Em *
And we're gonna be sinkin' soon.

We're [G]gonna be
Sinkin' [G]soon,
We're [Em]gonna be
Sinkin' [Em]soon,
[G]Everybody [C7]hold your breath 'cuz,
We're [B7]gonna be sinkin' [Em]soon
Instrumental Part:

Em (x5) D7 D7

[C7]   [B7]                                  
Em (x4) D7 D7

We're [G]gonna be
Sinkin' [G]soon,
We're [Em]gonna be
Sinkin' [Em]soon,
[G]Everybody [C7]hold your breath 'cuz,
[B7]Down and down we [Em]go.
Piano Solo

Em (x3)

Like the [Em]oyster cracker [Em]on the stew,
The [Em]honey in the [Em]tea
The [D7]sugar cubes, [D7]one lump or two?
C7 B7 (/C7/D7 slide)
No thank you, none for me.
We're the [Em]golden crust on an [Em]apple pie,
That [Em]shines in the sun at [Em]noon,
Like the [D7]wheel of cheese [D7]high in the sky
[D7]Well ... we're [C7]gonna [D7]be [B7]sinkin' [Em]soon.

B7 Em (let ring)
