A NERVOUS TIC MOTION OF THE HEAD TO THE LEFT - Andrew Bird
 
 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Ridcullylives
Email: popohau1@comcast.net
Tuning: Standard
INTRO:
[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)
[Am] [C/G] [Gm] [F] [E]
