Boatman  James Taylor

[VERSE 1] 
[D(9)]Hearts were exploding around us as
we drifted sout[D/F#]h down the bay.[G(9)]
The g[Bm7]ray up above and gra[E7sus]y down bel[E7]ow
[Em7]left us with [D/F#]nothing to say.[A7sus] [A7]
So we [D(9)]drifted along in silence
till the t[D/F#]ickle of life tr[G(9)]ickled in.
And the r[Bm7]hythm began in the[E7sus] hiss of the s[E7]and,
[Em7]we were catch[D/F#]ing fire again.[A7sus] [A]
[CBORUS] 
[G/D]Oh bo[D]atman, [G]I am the [D]river,
[G/D]I am the m[D]ountain [A7sus]and [A]the [D]sea.
[G/D]Oh [D]boatman, [G]taker and [D]giver[A/C#],
[Bm7]Can you deli[E7]ver m[Em7]e?[D/F#] [G(9)]
[G(9)]I would for[A]ever run fre[D]e.[G/D] [D]
[VERSE 2] 
Yeah, [D(9)]we finally caught up with legends,
we were walking a[D/F#]long side by si[G(9)]de.
We wo[Bm7]rked out a plan to go [E7sus]out hand in [E7]hand,
[Em7]the long trail j[D/F#]ust wasn't that[A7sus] wide.[A7]
The [D(9)]water around us was freezing,
we just [D(9)]laughed and [D/F#]threw ourselves[G(9)] in.
And [Bm7]although we were old, the [E7sus]sting of that [E7]cold
[Em7]pumped up the [D/F#]feeling, here it is [A7sus]again.[A]
[CBORUS] 
[G/D]Oh bo[D]atman, [G]I am the [D]river,
[G/D]I am the m[D]ountain [A7sus]and [A]the [D]sea.
[G/D]Oh [D]boatman, [G]taker and gi[D]ver,[A/C#]
[Bm7]Can you deli[E7]ver m[Em7]e?[D/F#] [G(9)]
[G(9)]I would for[A]ever run fre[D]e.[G/D] [D]
[BRIDGE] 
Oh, [A]I'm a [B7]message [E]in a [A]bottle
[A]drifting [B7]along on a [E]deep [A/E]blue [E]sea.
[A]Waiting f[B]or some fore[E]ign [A]shore,
[A]ready for [B/E]something t[A]o be.
[VERSE 3] 
No [D(9)]longer afraid of falling,
we cut the [D/F#]strings to the [G(9)]sky.
We found [Bm7]lever ground and we [E7sus]put ourselves [E7]down,
[Em7]amazing we all [D/F#]didn't [A7sus]die.[A7]
We [D(9)]took each moment as given,
by second, by [D/F#]second they [G(9)]came.
The [Bm7]ice and the sun and the [E7sus]thundering [E7]guns,
[Em7]good God I was [D/F#]finally[A7sus] sane.[A]
[CBORUS] 
[G/D]Oh bo[D]atman, [G]I am the [D]river,
[G/D]I am the m[D]ountain [A7sus]and [A]the [D]sea.
[G/D]Oh [D]boatman, [G]taker and gi[D]ver,[A/C#]
[Bm7]Can you deli[E7]ver m[Em7]e?[A7sus] [A]
[G/D]Oh [D]holy roller, [G]I am the [D]river,
[G/D]I am the m[D]ountain [A7sus]and [A]the [D]sea.
[G/D]Oh [D]boatman, [G]taker and gi[D]ver,[A/C#]
[Bm7]Can you deli[E7]ver m[Em7]e?[D/F#] [G(9)]
[G(9)]I would for[A]ever run [D]free.
