A Nervous Tic Motion Of The Head To The Left

Andrew Bird

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Dm
 Over prescribed
 G
 Under the mister
 CC/B
 We had survived to
 A7
 Turn on the history channel
 DmG
 And ask our esteemed panel
 C
Why are we alive
 C/BA7
And here's how they replied
 DmG
 You're what happens when two substances collide
 DmGAm
And by all accounts you really should've died

 EAm
(with Riff 1)
 AmC/GGmFE

VERSE:

 AmC/G
 Stretched out on the tarmac
 GmFE
 Six miles south of North Platte    
 AmC/G
 He can't stand to look back
 GmFE
 At sixteen tons of HazMat     

PRE-CHORUS:
 Am
And it's what goes
 BE
 Undelivered
 ADGmGm/FE
 Undelivered       

CHORUS:
 AmC/GGm
And it's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left     
 F
It's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left
 E
Of the what? Of the head to the left

 AmC/GGm
 Exercise yourself 'till you're bereft   
 F
'Cause it's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left
 E
Of the...of the...to the...

(Riff 1)

(verse and prechorus same chords second time)

VERSE:

Splayed out on a bathmat
Six miles north of South Platte
And he just wants his life back
What's in that paper knapsack

PRE-CHORUS:

It's what goes
Undelivered
Undelivered

 AmC/GGm
 It's a nervous tic motion of the head to the left   
 FE
A nervous tic motion of the head

(Riff 1 x2 w/ improv vocals)

OUTRO:
 Dm
 Over imbibed
 G
 Under the mister
 CC/B
 Barely alive we
 A7Dm
 Cover the blisters in flannel
 G
Though the words we speak are banal
 C
Not one of them's a lie
 C/BA7
Not one of them's a lie
 Dm
You're what happens when
 G
Two substances collide
 Dm
And by all accounts
 Am
You really should've died

Riff 1: (in case any of you don't have Mr. Bird's whistling skills and would rather play
on guitar)

 AmC/GGmFE
