Love Boat Captain

Pearl Jam

 CCm
 Is this just another day
 GF
 In this God forgotten place?
 CCmG
 First comes love and then comes pain.
 F
 Let the games begin.
 CCm
 Questions rise and answers
 GF
 fall insurmountable.

Chorus:
(Strumming now)

 ED7
 Love Boat Captain take the reins and steer us towards
 ED7
 The clear. Here. It's already been sung, but it can't be said enough,

All you need is love.

Verse 2:
Same chords as the start but played more openly, in a strumming rhythm.
 CCmGF
 Is this just another phase? Earthquakes making waves.
 CCmGF
 Trying to shake the cancer off. Stupid human beings.
 CCmGF
 Once you hold the hand of love, it's all surmountable.

Mid-section:
Almost like a bridge...Just strum these chords to the lyrics.

 ACGA
 Hold me and make it the truth,
 ACGA
 That when all is lost there will be you.
 ACG
 Cause to the universe I don't mean a thing.
 ACG
 And there's just one word I still believe.

And it's...

Verse 3- strumming same chords as earlier verses-(C, Cm, G, F):

It's an art to live with pain. Mix the light into gray.
Lost nine friends we'll never know. Two years ago today.
And if our lives became too long would it add to our regret?

Chorus 2 - Same chords (Emaj, D7), but played looser and with more power.

And the young they can lose hope cause they can't see beyond today.
The wisdom that the old can't give away.
Hey, constant recoil. Sometimes life don't leave you alone.

Mid-section 2- Same as last mid-section.(A, C, G).

Hold me and make it the truth.
That when all is lost there will be you.
Cause to the universe I don't mean a thing.
And there's just one word that I still believe and it's love.
Love. Love. Love. Love.

FILL 2

Outro - (C, Cm, G, F).

Love boat captain take the reigns. Steer us towards the clear.
I know it's already been sung. Can't be said enough.
Love is all you need. All you need is love.
Love. Love. Love.

Like I always recommend, you should listen to the song while learning it. It makes the
strum pattern way easier to learn. And if you get stuck it'll rescue you. Peace or Love choose one.
