Nature Boy  Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds - Nature Boy
Intro: Am G D x2
VERSE
[Am]I was just a boy when I'd sit down
and watch the news [D]on TV...
[Am]I saw some ordinary slaughter,
I saw some rou[D]tine atrocity,
[Am]My father said, "Don't look away,
you've got to be strong, [D]You've got to be bold now,"
[Am]He said that in the end it is beauty
that is going to [D]save the world now,
CHORUS
[C]And she move[G]s, among the sparro[D]ws...
[C]And she floa[G]ts upon the breez[D]e...
[C]And she move[G]s among the flowe[D]rs...
[C]And she move[G]s something [D]deep inside of me.
VERSE
I was walking around the flower show like a leopard
coming down with some kind of nervous hysteria,
I saw you standing there, green eyes, black hair,
up against the pink and purple wisteria,
You said "Hey nature boy, you lookin' at me
with some unrighteous intention?"
My knees went weak, I couldn't speak, I was having thoughts
that were not in my best interest to mention...
CHORUS
[C]And she move[G]s, among the sparro[D]ws...
[C]And she floa[G]ts upon the breez[D]e...
[C]And she move[G]s among the flowe[D]rs...
[C]And she move[G]s me with ju[D]st one little look.
VERSE
You take me back to your place and dress me up
in your deep sea diver's suit,
You played the patriot, you raise the flag,
and I stood in full salute,
Later on we smoked a pipe, you struck me dumb
and made it impossible to speak,
as you closed in, in slow motion,
quoting Sappho in the original greek,
CHORUS
And she moves, among the shadows...
And she floats upon the breeze...
And she moves, among the candles...
And we move through the days and through the years.
VERSE
The years pass by, we walk
by the sea half delirious,
You smiled at me and said "Babe, I think
this thing is getting kind of serious,"
You pointed at something and said
"Have you ever seen such a beautiful thing?"
And it was then that I broke down,
it was then you lifted me up again,
CHORUS
And she moves, among the sparrows...
And she walks across the sea...
And she moves among the flowers...
And she moves something deep inside of me.
And she moves, among the sparrows...
And she floats upon the breeze...
And she moves among the flowers...
And she moves something deep right up close to me.
