The Shins - Sea Legs chords & lyrics

My last Shins post was "Strange Powers", which actually didn't feature on "Wincing The Night Away", but was the B side of this song, "Sea Legs", the 4th single from that album.

As with almost all of the Shins songs, the quirky intricacies of the lyrics and melodies suggest that they would be hard songs to play, but again, this song has only 4 chords - G, D, A# ( Bb) and F. The rhythm of the chords sometimes seems to go counter to the melody, but it just takes a little getting used to!

You can find my version of The Shins "Sea Legs" on my guitar chords website at the link below:
