Clam, Crab, Cockle, Cowrie  Joanna Newsom
The other clam crab cockle chords are close. The first is a half step
too high, and both are missing or contain wrong chords.
I put a chord letter every time she plucks a bass root note.
Note: she plays the bass note of the B chord below the low E
on the guitar, so it will sound slightly different on guitar
unless you tune down.
That means [B]no, where I come [B]from.
I am [B]cold, out waiting for the [F#]day to come.
I chew my [B]lips, and I scratch my [B]nose
fe[B]els so good [F#] to be [E] a rose.[E]
Oh don't,[B] don't you life me [B]up
like I'm that [B]shy, no no no no no, just give it [F#]up
There are [E]bats all [F#]dissolving in a [B]row
into the [E]wishy-washy dar[F#]k that can't let [G#m] go.
I cannot let [B]go, so I thank the [B]lord, and I thank his [B] sword!
'tho it be [B]mincing up the [F#]morning, slightly [G#m] bored.
O, [B]morning without [E]warning like a [B]hole, o[F#]h and I watch you [E] go.
There are some [B]mornings when the [F#]sky looks like a [E]road.
There are some [B]dragons who were [F#]built to have and [E]hold.
And some [B]machines are dropped from [F#]great heights lov[G#m]ingly.
and some great [B]bellies ache with [E]many bumble[B]bees
and [F#]they sting so [E] terribly.[E]
I do as I [B]please. Now I'm on my [B]knees.
Your skin is [B]something that I [F#]stir into my [G#m] tea.
And I am [E]watching you[E]
and you are [G#m]starry, starry, starry[G#m]
and I'm tumbling [B]down, and I [F#]check a [E]frown.[E]
It's why I love this [B]town: Well, just look a[B]round.
just see me [G#m]serenaded hourly! [G#m]celebrated sourly!
[E]dedicated dourly; [E]
[F#]waltzing with the open [B]sea -[B]
[F#]clam, crap, [E]cockle, cowrie : [F#]will you just look at [G#m]me?
[B] [E] [B] [F#] [E]  
 o wo wo o-oh owo-o-oh owo-o-oh ohoho oh-oh

(repeat twice, then for the last time)
[B] [E] [B] [F#] [E] [F#] [B]  
 o wo wo o-oh owo-o-oh owo-o-oh ohoho oh-oh
