OCEAN

WORDS & MUSIC:   Earl P. Reinhalter


D = D add9 (no 3rd)


        INTRO:  D


                    E/A
            I.  the ocean is breathing.

                her stomach is rising and falling and rising.
                    A/D
                the water is dreaming

                of moo cows in summer,

                of moo cows in summer.


 INSTRUMENTAL:  D


                    E/A
           II.  the wind blows around her.

                she's tossing and turning and tossing and turning.
                    A/D
                her breathing is faster

                from slaughterhouse visions

                of slaughterhouse visions.


 INSTRUMENTAL:  D
                E/A - E/B - E/A - E/B
                A/D - A/E - A/D - A/E
                E/A - E/B - E/A - E/B
                A/D - A/E - A/D - A/E
                E/A


                    E/A
          III.  smooth as a window,

                silent and still as a star in the sky,
                    A/D
                a haven for tall ships:

                nothing is threatened,

                but nothing is moving.


 INSTRUMENTAL:  D
