This is a tab of the acoustic rendition of this song:

This summer I went swimming,

This summer I might have drowned 

Em-                  C-Cadd9-C                   
But I held my breath and I kicked my feet 

D-Dsus4-D     Em-Em7-Em         
And I moved my arms around,
[ Tab from: https://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/l/loudon_wainwright_iii/swimming_song_crd_ver_2.html ]
D-Dsus4-D       G
I moved my arms around.

This summer I swam in the ocean, 
And I swam in a swimming pool, 
Salt my wounds, chlorine my eyes, 
I'm a self-destructive fool, a self-destructive fool. 

This summer I swam in a public place 
And a reservoir, to boot, 
At the latter I was informal, 
At the former I wore my suit, I wore my swimming suit. 

This summer I did the backstroke 
And you know that's not all 
I did the breast stroke and the butterfly 
And the old Australian crawl, the old Australian crawl. 

This summer I did swan dives 
And jackknifes for you all 
And once when you weren't looking 
I did a cannonball, I did a cannonball.
