"Sail On Sailor"


verse 1:

	G                 C/G G               C/G
	I sailed an ocean,    unsettled ocean
	G                     C/G G
	Through restful waters    and deep commotion
	Ebmaj9 Am7/D     Ebmaj9  Am7/D
	Often frightened,    unenlightened
	Ebmaj7     F        G
	Sail on, sail on sailor

verse 2:

	I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters
	Sail through the sorrows of life's marauders
	Unrepenting, often empty
	Sail on, sail on sailor


	D                 D#dim  Em
	Caught like a sewer rat alone but I sail
	D                      D#dim  Em
	Bought like a crust of bread, oh do I wail

bridge 1:

	       Am7 Em         Am7 Em
	Seldom stumble, never crumble
	       Am7 Em           Am7 Em
	Try to tumble, life's a rumble
	          G   Am7           G  Am7
	Feel the stinging I've been given
	      G  Am7       G   C
	Never ending, unrelenting
	           Am7 Em          Am7 Em
	Heartbreak searing, always fearing
	      Am7 Em       Am7 Em
	Never caring, persevering
	Ebmaj7    F        G
	Sail on, sail on, sailor

verse 3:

	I work the seaways, the gale-swept seaways
	Past shipwrecked daughters of wicked waters
	Uninspired, drenched and tired
	Sail on, wail on, sailor

bridge 2:

	Always needing, even bleeding
	Never feeding all my feelings
	Damn the thunder, must I blunder
	There's no wonder all I'm under
	Stop the crying and the lying
	And the sighing and my dying

	Sail on, sail on sailor [repeat to fade]
