"Sail On Sailor"
(J. Rieley / R. Kennedy / B. Wilson / T. Almer / V. D. Parks)

[/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/] [/]  
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
-- another ace 70's tab from Andrew Rogers
