Gone Swimming

written by Mark Curry
as performed on the album "It's Only Time"
transcribed by Anand Kumar (ST001904@hrz1.hrz.th-darmstadt.de)


This is one of the best song I know so far. Besides it's very easy (at least the
rhythm guitar, singing simutaneously might be more difficult)!
The G is played at the 3rd fret and you slide into the F played at the first
fret, everytime you have a G followed by an F.
You really have to listen to the CD for the rhythm of the voice. I thought
about putting the chords right where they are sung, but somehow this made
the appearance of the file even worse, so I aligned them to the words, which
is not exactly the way they are sung, but much easier to visualize. You'll
get it anyway, I guess.

G   F   C   C
G   F   C   C
G                           F
Down by the Riverside, well there's a place for me
      C                           C
Where I won't sit and think about where I'd rather be
G                  F
and I don't need nothing
C                  C
but the look on my face
G(stop)
It's all bullshit
F(stop)                       D       C(stop)
It's just the time it takes between
                         G     D
where it comes and where it

C
You can go swimming, no sign of rainstorms or
F
thunder I won't be joining you
C
because today between the time it's taking
F                                      C(stop)
me to wonder I just might get sucked under

G           F     C                  C
Down by the ocean, it's all behind me it's just an open sea,
G                        F
and I can really see for miles
C             C
I wish I knew just what I was looking for
G(stop)                   F(stop)                   D
A pool of endless rhymes, I ain't talking 'bout the water
              C(stop)                        G    D
We're talking time, where it comes and where it   yeah

C                                               F
You can go swimming, there's been no warning of hurricane
                                  C
or tidal wave, ain't no dangerous fish out there
                       F
I won't be joining you still
                                                  C
It's just a feeling in me I get washed out to the sea

         C(sus2)
Yeah the sea

D  D  Am  Am               fooling around with Dsus2, Dsus4,
D  D  Am  Am(stop)         Am7 and Amsus2 sounds nice if you're
                           playing alone (i.e. without band)

D
I wish I could go 'cause you know
                       C
that the water doesn't usually frighten me so
                          F
It's not the depth of the sea that infatuates me
                        G
It's what remains to be seen, like the time in between
                            D     F
where it comes and where it goes
         D        F        C(stop)    riff
where it goes yeah

G                  F
Down in a creekbed in my old neighbourhood
C                         C
there is a trickle that's dirty and warm
G                       F
and I have spend many a childhood hour there
C                          C
It's where I used to play, seems like yesterday
G                       F
But I was younger then, just make believing
C             C
making wishes and tossing pennies in
G(stop)             F(stop)
and now I've grown, haven't changed my tone,
                    D	                        C        F
just getting stoned and ain't pretending that I know

C                                      F
You can go swimming though it's only a trickle there
                                      C
and the floodgates haven't worked for years
                        F
I won't be joining you, no, I wish I could go

but I
    C     F
and I
C                     F
You can go swimming

fade out...
