[INTRO]
Em[G] , Em[F#] , Em[F] , Em ,   (X2)

[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,
         Am                        Em
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,

[INTERLUDE]
Em , G , Am , Em , (X2)

[VERSE]
Em[G]                           Em[F#]
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,
C                         Am     G
       It's all you can... do, (Hey)

[INTERLUDE]
Em G Am Em(X2)

[VERSE]
Em[G]                               Em[F#]
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 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                             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,

This is spot on and a lot more comfortable to play than other tabs I've seen. Thanks!
