Sail on Sailor   Beach Boys

Verse 1:

        [G]I sailed an ocean,[C/G]    [G]unsettled ocean [C/G]
        [G]Through restful waters[C/G]    [G]and deep commotion
        [Ebmaj9]Often f[Am7/D]rightened,[Ebmaj9]    unen[Am7/D]lightened
        [Ebmaj7]Sail on, sa[F]il on sai[G]lor

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]Caught like a sewe[D#dim]r rat a[Em]lone but I sail
        [D]Bought like a crust of [D#dim]bread, [Em]oh do I wail

Bridge 1:

        Seldom [Am7]stum[Em]ble, never [Am7]crum[Em]ble
        Try to [Am7]tumb[Em]le, life's a [Am7]rumb[Em]le
        Feel the s[G]ting[Am7]ing I've been [G]giv[Am7]en
        Never [G]end[Am7]ing, unrel[G]enti[C]ng
        Heartbreak [Am7]sear[Em]ing, always [Am7]fear[Em]ing
        Never [Am7]cari[Em]ng, perse[Am7]veri[Em]ng
        [Ebmaj7]Sail on, s[F]ail on, s[G]ailor

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

Coda (repeat to fade):

        [Ebmaj7]Sail on, s[F]ail on, s[G]ailor
