Subject: CRD : Sail on - The Commodores

These are simple chords to the song. I'd really appreciate someone filling
in the correct chords (ie. perhaps a D7 or D/A instead of a simple D).
I couldn't figure out the change to a different scale in the last part of
the song.

Sail on - The Commodores

G Am G Am G

Sail on down the line
About half a mile or so
C			G
Don't really wanna know where you're going

Maybe once or twice
Time after time I tried
To hold on to what we got
But now you're going

    C		D		G		Em
And I don't mind about the things you're gonna sail on
    C		D		G Em
I give all my money and my time
    C		D
I know it's a shame
	    Bm			Em  C G C
But I'm giving you back your name
      C			D
Yes, I'll be on my way
      C			D
I won't be back to stay
       C		D
I guess I'll move along
			   G Am G
I'm looking for a good time

Sail on down the line
Funny how the time can go
Friends says they told me so but it doesn't matter
It was plain to see
That a small town boy like me
Just wasn't your cup of tea
I was wishful thinking

I gave you my heart and I tried to make you happy
And you gave me nothing in return
You know it ain't so hard to say
Would you please just go away
I've thrown away the blues
I'm tired of being used
I want everyone to know
I'm looking for a good time
Good time

(The scale changes here but to what, I don't know)

Sail on honey
Good times never felt so good
