"The Ship Song"
	by Concrete Blonde
	  -a Nick Cave cover

	Starts out with a G strummed up and then...

	 G		 D		C		G      D
(SW)	Come sail your ships around me and burn your bridges down
	 G		  D		C	      G	     D
	We make a little history baby, everytime you come around
	 G		  D		  C	       G	 D
	Come lose your thoughts upon me, and let your hair hang down
	 G	  	   D		 C	      G       D
	You are a little mystery baby, everytime you call around
	 C		  G	     D
	We talk about it all night long
				(ALL... NIGHT LONG)
	 C		   G      D
	And we define our moral ground
			     (OH...YEAH...)
	 Em		  G		   C			G	D
(*both)	But when I crawl into your arms, everything, it comes tumbling down
	 G		D		 C		G	D
	Come sail your ships around me, and burn your bridges down
	 G		   D		C	      G	    D
	We make a little history baby, everytime you come around
	 C			G   D    C		  G	  D
(JN)	Are your faces falling sad now, for you know the time is night
	 Em	      G			    C		  G       D
	Well I must remove your wings, and you, you must try and fly

	(do the beginning [the chorus] a couple times)

	*solo*

	(do the beginning [the chorus} some more and play around with it)
	(Johnette does some of her cool singing et al.)


	-scott
