A Nervous Tic Motion Of The Head To The Left  Andrew Bird



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

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
[Dm]Over prescribed
[G]Under the mister
[C]We had [C/B]survived to
[A7]Turn on the history channel
[Dm]And ask our esteemed [G]panel
Why are we [C]alive
And [C/B]here's how they re[A7]plied
[Dm]You're what happens when two substances [G]collide
And by [Dm]all accounts you [G]really should've [Am]died
[E]  [Am]                                   
(with Riff 1)
[Am]   [C/G]    [Gm]   [F]  [E]                         

VERSE:

[Am]Stretched out on the [C/G]tarmac
[Gm]Six miles south of [F]North Platte   [E]
[Am]He can't stand to [C/G]look back
[Gm]At sixteen tons of [F]HazMat    [E]

PRE-CHORUS:
And it's what [Am]goes
[B]Undeli[E]vered
[A]Unde[D]liver[Gm]ed [Gm/F]     [E]


CHORUS:
And it's a [Am]nervous tic motion of the [C/G]head to the left    [Gm]
It's a nervous tic motion of the [F]head to the left
Of the what? Of the [E]head to the left

[Am]Exercise yourself 'till [C/G]you're bereft  [Gm]
'Cause it's a nervous tic motion of the [F]head to the left
Of the...of the...[E]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

[Am]It's a nervous tic motion of the [C/G]head to the left  [Gm]
A nervous tic [F]motion of the [E]head

(Riff 1 x2 w/ improv vocals)


OUTRO:
[Dm]Over imbibed
[G]Under the mister
[C]Barely [C/B]alive we
[A7]Cover the blisters in [Dm]flannel
Though the words we speak are [G]banal
Not one of them's a [C]lie
Not [C/B]one of them's a [A7]lie
You're what [Dm]happens when
Two substances [G]collide
And by all [Dm]accounts
You really should've [Am]died

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