VERSE: 

Em[G]                           Em[F#]
Drank away the rest of the day, wonder what my liverd' say,

Em[F]                 Em
Drink, that's all you can,

Em[G]                                        Em[F#]
Blackened days with their bigger gales, blow in your parlor to discuss the day

Em[F]                  Em
Listen, that's all you can,



CHORUS:

       G                        D/A
Ah but don't, no don't sink the boat,

         Am                        Em
That you built, you built to keep afloat,

      G                        D/A
Ah no don't, no don't sink the boat,

         Am                                       
That you built,



VERSE:

Em[G]                          Em[F#]
Sick and tired of what to say, no one listens anyway,

Em[F]                Em
Sing, that's all you can, 

Em[G]                             Em[F#]
Ramblin' years of lousy luck, you miss the smell of burnin' turf,

Em[F]                 Em
Dream, that's all you can,



CHORUS:

       G                        D/A
Ah but don't, no don't sink the boat,

That you built, you built to keep afloat,

      G                        D/A
Ah no don't, no don't sink the boat,

         Am                             Em      
That you built, that you built to keep afloat,

Singled out for who you are, it takes all types to judge a man,

Em[F]                Em
Feel, that's all you can,

Em[G]                          Em[F#]
Filthy suits with bigot ears, hide behind their own worst fears,

Em[F]                Em
Live, that's all you can

C                         Em
       It's all you can,

       It's all you can... do, (Hey)

No matter where I put my head, Ill wake up feelin' sound again,

Em[F]                  Em
Breathe, it's all you can,

Em[G]                               Em[F#]
Tomorrow smells of less decay, the flowers greet this bloomin' fray,

Em[F]                       Em
Be thankful, that's all you can,



CHORUS:

       G                       D/A

Ah no don't, no don't sink the boat,

         Am                             Em      
That you built, that you built to keep afloat,

      G                          D/A
Ah no don't, oh no don't sink the boat,

            Am                             (Em)
Oh that you built, that you built to keep afloat,
