Six Months In A Leaky Boat  - Split Enz
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
From 'Time and Tide' and 'Waiata'.

Transcribed by John Kean (keanj@agresearch.cri.nz).


VERSE 1:
              D
 When I was a young man I wanted to sail 'round the world
                     Bm
 That's the life for me, living on the sea
             D
 Spirit of a sailor circumnavigates the globe
            Bm
 Lust of pioneer will acknowledge no fronteir

CHORUS 1:
     A                    D
 I remember you by thunderclap in the sky
           A                              D           Bm
 Lightning flash tempers flare, Round the Horn if you dare
              Gmaj7
 I just spent six months in a leaky boat
                             D   A   D
 Lucky just to keep afloat

VERSE 2:
 Aotearoa, rugged individual
 Glisten like a pearl at the bottom of the world
 The tyrany of distance didn't stop the cavalier
 So why should it stop me? I'll conquer and stay free

CHORUS 2:
 Ah come on all you lads, let's forget and forgive
 There's a world to explore, tales to tell back on shore
 I just spent six months in a leaky boat
 Six months in a leaky boat

SOLO:
 (Circus bit, then verse chords)

CHORUS 3:
 Shipwrecked love can be cruel, don't be fooled by her kind
 There's a wind in my sails, will protect and prevail
 I just spent six months in a leaky boat
 Nothing to it, leaky boat

OUTRO:
 Dm to fade
