                          Coming Up For Air
                           (Patty Larkin)

Comments: This is one of the most soothing, relaxing,
          intoxicating songs I have ever heard.  Jane
          Siberry's backing vocals have a lot to do with that.
          Most remarkably, it is EASY to play, unlike
          many of Larkin's songs.  Just strum the 3 chords
          forward and back repeatedly.  Emphasize the base
          strings while strumming.

Guitar tuning: eADGAD

Chords:  (repeat these ad infinitum)

1: 320000      (note: slide up from chord 2 to chord 3 and back)
2: 332000
3: 554000

we are surrounded by so much water
1         2          3       2  etc.
that we might as well get a boat
or we could swim like neptune's daughters
to the other side of the moat

coming up for air
rising to a very new somewhere
coming up for air
on the last breath around

we are sleeping in a canyon
where the walls rise up to the sky
we could reach the rim by standing
and begin to breathe with a sign


we are swaying like a willow
that is weeping over the view
we could wave goodbye
and fly into the hills
and into the blue


on the last breath around
on the last breath around
