VERSE:
A                           D
  We used to go down to the beach at night
A                          D
  Fireflies dancing in the promenade lights
Bm7                                    E
  Ah those rock 'n' roll bands used to really swing
A                             D
  And I'd do the foxtrot with sweet Christine
C#m7                             Bm7
  Speakin' to me with her gentle hands
C#m7                    Bm7  `
  Fly on down to Wonder-land

CHORUS:
A      `         E                `
  Deep water I'm caught up in its flow
D           `               E              `
If I'm in o-ver my head I'd be the last to know
D      A    D      A
  Deep water  deep water

.E D  .E D

VERSE:
A                                   D
  They closed down the doors to the Trocadero
A                              D
  And I came back looking just like a ghost
Bm7                         E
  Posters are scattered all over the stairs
A                      D
  Nobody reads them so nobody cares
C#m7                         Bm7
  Kids all retired when they reached twenty-one
C#m7                     Bm7       `
  Really just ain't my i-dea of fun

CHORUS:
A      `         E                `
  Deep water I'm caught up in its flow
D           `               E              `
If I'm in o-ver my head I'd be the last to know
D      A    D      A
  Deep water  deep water

Amaj7                `
  Sitting out on the Palm Beach Road
Fmaj7(b5)              `
  I'm so drunk and the car won't go
D                    E11(b9)           A  `
  My crazy eyes keep looking out to sea
Amaj7(C#-Bass)           `
  The sunday drivers are cruising round
Fmaj7(b5)            `
  Wish they'd all go back to town
D                 E
  What do they ex-pect to find

1 beat passing chord:

Maintain the down and up strum movement for each beat.
Then syncopate each change by playing on the up-strum.
