Sailing
by Jerry Jeff Walker

Spoken by Jerry Jeff:
Well, there I am in Mexico, man,
I'm sittin' on a big hot rock------with the blues,
Watchin' this sailboat drive by, and I'm wonderin', "Where's mine?"
Hell, I know where there's ship in a bottle,
I mean a schooner with a worm on board, yeah.

Chorus:
F*
I think I'm gonna go off sailing
C
I think I'm gonna go off sailing
F                        bass line: F  E     Dm7
I think I'm gonna go off         sail       ing
            Gflat         C        F
Cause I've been on dry land too long

F
Something I seen here seems to make me seasick
C
Something I seen here seems to make me seasick
F                                     bass line: F E     Dm7 
Something I seen here seems to make me           sea     sick
       Gm7         C        F
And I been on dry land too long

(Roll on)
Chorus

Leeches, land sharks, octopusses make my bwain hurt
Land sharks, octopusses make my bwain hurt
Yea, and I've been on dry land too long


(Ship in a bottle)
Chorus

(Sail on, sail on)
Chorus

(Let's carry on)
Chorus

(I need a ship in a bottle)
Chorus

*The song may very well be in E, since it seems tuned about half-way between
E and F.
