[Intro]
G    Cadd9    G    Cadd9
G    Cadd9    Em7   B7sus4

[Verse 1]
            G       Cadd9
We sent out the SOS call
         G           Cadd9
It was a quater past four 
       G
In the morning
         Cadd9           Em7           B7sus4
When the storm broke our second anchor line.
G              Cadd9
Four months at sea.
     G              Cadd9
Four months of calm seas
           G              Cadd9
Only to be pounded in the shallows
           Em7            B7sus4
Off of the tip of Montauk Point.

[Verse 2]
G              Cadd9
They call them rogues.
            G        Cadd9
They travel fast and alone,
    G            Cadd9 
One hundred foot faces
              Em7        B7sus4
Of God's good ocean gone wrong
               G         Cadd9
What they call love is a risk,
               G          Cadd9
Cause you will always get hit
       G
Out of nowhere 
        Cadd9        Em7        B7sus4
By some wave and end up on your own.

[Chorus 1]
C               G   
The hole in the hull defied the crews attempts 
Em7        B7sus4
To bail us out.
C               G
And flooded the engines and radio
Em7             B7sus4
And half buried bow.

[Verse 3]
     G           Cadd9
Your tongue is a rudder.
   G                Cadd9
It steers the whole ship.
           G               Cadd9
Sends your words past your lips
              Em7              B7sus4
Or keeps them safe behind your teeth.
        G                Cadd9
But the wrong words will strand you.
         G                Cadd9
Come off course while you sleep.
           G           Cadd9
Sweep your boat out to sea
                Em7         B7sus4
Or dashed it to bits on the reef.

[Verse 4]
G          Cadd9
The vessel groans
          G             Cadd9
The ocean pressures its frame.
        G              Cadd9
Off the port I see the lighthouse
            Em7           B7sus4
Through the sleet and the rain.
           G            Cadd9
And I wish for one more day 
           G              Cadd9
To give my love and repay debts.
        G                 Cadd9
But the morning finds our bodies
          Em7          B7sus4
Washed up thirty miles west.

[Chorus 2]
C                 G
They say that the captain 
                    Em7
Stays fast with the ship 
                  B7sus4
Through still and storm.
C                  G
But this ain't the Dakota.
                 Em7
And the water is cold.
                           B7sus4
We won't have to fight for long.

[ENDING]
            G
This is the end.

This story's old

But it goes on and on 
         Cadd9
Until we disappear.

Calm me and let me taste
 
The salt that you breathed
               G
While you were underneath.

I am the one who haunts your dreams
                            Cadd9
Of mountains sunk below the sea.

I spoke the words but never
                                      Em7
Gave a thought to what they all could mean.

I know that this is what you want.
                           B7sus4
A funeral keeps both of us apart.

You know that you are not alone.
                          G
Need you like water in my lungs.

That Bsus7 should leave the high e and b strings open, and all those chords should have the b strin gopen too.

And whoever said it was standard is tone deaf...badly

And the very last chord before the final G is that Cm chord...not B
