Moving, Shaking  Great Lake Swimmers

This is an awesome song from an awesome group, and is really simple to play-- great for
starting out or who just loves this song.
If you're playing along with the song, the tuning is fine. If you're playing it by
you might want to use a capo because the key is very strange. Listen to the song a few times
you sing it. A pick is not used in the song, which makes it easier to strum.
All chords are strummed like so: the A and D string together, then G B e after. In all
accentuate the e string. The low E is not really strummed at all.
The third chord in the sequence could be either an F or an Am with the C (2nd string,
fret) held down. Whichever tickles your fancy, they both fit nicely.
INTRO
C plays a few times
[C]I can't write
[G]I can't sing
[F]I can't play[C]
[C]My insides [G]have been [F]broken[C]
[C]My inspi[G]ration has [F]flown aw[C]ay
It's [C]hard to [G]see all the l[F]ittle t[C]hings
[C] [G] [F] [C] 
There's a [C]universe[G]
In a [F]crack in the [C]wall
For an [C]ant crawling [G]across
A [F]broken t[C]ile
And it's [C]hard to [G]see all the l[F]ittle t[C]hings
When the [C]big things [G]get in the [F]way[C]
[C] [G] [F] [C]  
I can't [C]eat
I can't [G]sleep
I can't t[F]hink s[C]traight
[C]I did not k[G]now it could b[F]e like t[C]his
[C]Some things are [G]better off [F]being left [C]alone
[C]There are t[G]hings that are [F]better left [C]unknown
Oh hands,
Don't fail me now
They're the only things I have left
Oh fingers,
Don't let me down, now
They're the only things that aren't gone
Oh world, come
Come crashing down, now
Oh hands, don't fail me now
Oh let me become if I'm new to this
Oh hands, don't fail me, now
[F]I'm carrying [C]my life in a [G]cardboard box
[F]Carrier [C]bag on my [G]back
[F]I'm carrying [C]my life in a [G]cardboard box
[F]Carrier [C]bag on my [G]back
Oh hands,
Don't fail me now
They're the only things I have got
Oh fingers,
Don't let me down, now
Oh hands, don't fail me now
All Hell falls
All down around me
Oh hands, don't fail me now
Oh fingers,
Don't let me down, now
Oh hands, don't fail me now
Then there's some funny business where he changes from F - C - F - C - G
or something similar. Listen to the song and try things out. Good luck, and happy playing.
