Guy Clark Boats to Build written by Guy Clark
Verlon Thompson
[C] [G] [Am] [F] [C] [G] [C]  
[C]It's time for a [F]change
[C]I'm tired of that [F]same old same the [G]same old words
[Am]the same old lines [Bb]the same old tricks and the [G]same old rhymes
[C]Days precious [F]days [C]roll in and out [F]like waves
[G]I got boards to bend I got [Am]planks to nail
I got [Bb]charts to make I got s[G]eas to sail
I'm gonna [F]build me a boat with t[G]hese two hands
It'll be a [C]fair curve from a [F]noble plan
[Dm]let the chips fall [G]where they will cause
I've got [C]boats to build [G] [Am] [F] [C] [G] [C]
[C]Sails are just like [F]wings
The [C]wind can [F]make em sing [G]songs of life
[Am]Songs of hope [Bb]songs to keep your [G]dreams afloat
I'm gonna [F]build me a boat with [G]these two hands
It'll be a [C]fair curve from a [F]noble plan
[Dm]Let the chips fall [G]where they will cause
I've got [C]boats to build [G] [Am] [F] [C] [G] [C]
[C]Shores distant [F]shores
[C]There's where
I'm [F]headed for
[G]Got the stars to g[Am]uide my way
[Bb]sail into the [G]light of day
I'm gonna [F]build me a boat with [G]these two hands
It'll be a [C]fair curve from a [F]noble plan
[Dm]let the chips fall [G]where they will cause
I've got [C]boats to build [G] [Am] [F] [C] [G] [C]
