My first chording effort - apologies for errors, etc! Done from listening to the 
album version, so no idea if this actually looks like the official version...

Note: the melody starts on a D, while the guitar is playing E minor. This feels 
very wrong til you get used to it. I think it sounds better if you sit heavily on 
the low end: you really want that underlying E - F - G on the low E string.

Chords used:
Em   022000
D/F  200230
G      320033
A      x02220

Intro:
Em   -   D/F   -   G   -   (G)
Em   -   D/F   -   G   -   A
x2

[Oohs]

Verse 1:
Em            D/F               G
   Girl don't tell me that it's morning
Em        D/F       G           (A)
   Can we keep the curtains drawn?
Em           D/F            G
   I haven't given you fair warning
Em         D/F       G           A
   But our ship, it sails at dawn


Chorus:
         D/F            A            G                 A
And it's true I must be going, but I swear it won't be long
      D/F             A             G              A
There isn't that much ocean between Boston and St. Johns
Em       D/F            A             D/F (?)
   I'm a rover, and I'm bound to sail away
      G             A          (->Em...)
I'm a rover can you love me anyway?

[1x intro passage]

Verse 2:
Em             D/F            G
   And if some suitor comes approaching
Em          D/F        G             (A)
   Will you let him through your door?
Em         D/F           G
   What if I return half-broken?
     Em        D/F      G     A
Will you still love me any more?

Chorus:
         D/F            A            G                 A
And it's true I must be going, but I swear it won't be long
      D/F             A             G              A
There isn't that much ocean between Boston and St. Johns
Em       D/F            A             D/F (?)
   I'm a rover, and I'm bound to sail away
      G             A          (->Em...)
I'm a rover can you love me anyway?
 
[1x intro passage]

Bridge:
Em            D/F
   Close your eyes and dream
    G                    A
And tell me what you see
D/F                A
   You can tell me what you want
     G                   A
Just tell me that you'll wait for me

    Em          D/F               G...
But oh... Don't tell me that it's morning... [repeat verse 1 & chorus]


[Outro - loop intro and get quieter. Last chord the Em?]
