Paddle Forward  Yo La Tengo

Song: Paddle Forward
All right, I think I pretty much have this down. Most of the song does consist of
chords, except for one interlude riff played here and there.
Tuning: Standard
Here are all the chords used in the song:
[G] [A] [Em] [F#m] [D]  

Verse 1:
[G]SOS, [A] [G] [A]we've come [Em]unmoored
[G]Rip ride [A]pulling, [G]pulling a[A]way from the [Em]shore
[Em]But we feel safe, [F#m]inside, [Em]not a wave in [F#m]sight,
[Em]Hang on tight, the water's fine
Now the interlude riff is played:

Verse 2:
[G]Lock the [A]boat, [G] we've [A]come [Em]unmoored
[G]Slipped the [A]cleat, [G]lost at [A]sea, [Em]back in the centerboard
[Em]But we feel safe, [F#m]for now, [Em]as long as time [F#m]allows,
[Em]Hang on tight
[G] [A]Rushes by too fast,[G] [A]never seems to last
[G] [A]Every day, [D]hanging [A]here be[D]low the [A]mast
Play around with the interlude riff for the next four bars:
 |D-------------| x4

[G] [A] [G] [A] [Em]  
[G] [A] [G] [A] [Em]  
[G]Ship of [A]fools, [G] we've [A]come [Em]unmoored
[G]Rip tide [A]pulling, [G]pulling a[A]way from the [Em]shore
[Em]But we feel safe, [F#m]inside, [Em]not a wave in [F#m]sight,
[Em]Hang on tight, there's still time, the water's fine
Play interlude riff for two bars:
 |D-------------| x2

[G] [A]  
[G] [A]  
[G] [A]  
[D] [A] [D] [A]  
and finish on Em
