    Andy: “From the same session that brought up that version of ‘Dear God’ on Virgin's ‘Coat of Many Cupboards’. Odd we should be drowning in all things hot and summerfied on a freezing January day in 1986. But, as you can hear, things get a bit hot under our paisley collars in this extended psychedelirious workout, deep in the bowels of Dave's parlour. Recorded so that Todd Rundgren could cut together a ‘demo’ album.”

Lyrics

Drowning here in Summer's Cauldron
Under mats of flower lava
Please don't pull me out this is how I would want to go
Breathing in the boiling butter
Fruit of sweating golden inca
Please don't heed my shout I'm relax in the undertow

When Miss Moon lays down
And Sir Sun stands up
Me I'm found floating round and round
Like a bug in brandy
In this big bronze cup
Drowning here in Summer's Cauldron

Trees are dancing drunk with nectar
Grass is waving underwater
Please don't pull me out this is how I would want to go
Insect bomber Buddhist droning
Copper chord of August's organ
Please don't heed my shout I'm relax in the undertow

When Miss Moon lays down
    in her hilltop bed
And Sir Sun stands up
    raise his regal head
Me I'm found floating round and round
Like a bug in brandy
In this big bronze cup
Drowning here in Summer's Cauldron

Hi !

As a big fan of the album "Skylarking" and an enthusiast bass player,
I decided to transcribe all the songs from the record (except "1000
Umbrellas" because there's no bass, duh), including "Dear God".
There's surely mistakes here and there, but I tried to do my best.
Hope it will help some bass players across the word :)

Cheers,
Florian.

PS : Sorry if I made some grammatical mistakes, i'm french :)

Been awhile since I contributed, but I thought I'd send you a "second
opinion" for the chords to Summer's Cauldron.

Many thanks,
