You Be The Anchor That Keeps My Feet On The Ground
Tuning: standard
Some of the chords aren't exactly the chords played on the album recording (I 
added in a bunch of chords to the final verse), but I think it sounds better this 
way, especially for acoustic.

Verse 1
Fadd9         C           Csus2       Am/G
And honestly, I have been begging for answers
     Gsus4                        Fadd9
That you and only you can give to me
               C              Csus2      Am/G
A voice crying loud I've been crying for days now
    Gsus4                        Fadd9
And as I start to run, I stop to breathe
(And I was nearly scared to death)
    C            Csus2
And I was nearly scared to death
Am/G
(Why you left in paragraphs)
Gsus4
Why you left in paragraphs
     Fadd9
(The words were nearly over us)
    C                 Csus2
The words were nearly over us
    Am/G                        Gsus4
You stop and turn and grab your bags




Chorus
            C
And I'll be here by the ocean

Just waiting for proof that there's
Fadd9
sunsets and silhouette dreams
Csus2    Am/G
  All my sand castles fall
         Csus2    C
like the ashes of cigarettes
    Fadd9                  Csus2
And every wave drags me to sea
         C
I could stand here for hours

Just to ask God the question
    Fadd9
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
Csus2    Am/G
  With a tear in His voice
          Csus2           C
He said, "Son, that's the question."
          Fadd9
Does this deafening silence
     Gsus4
mean nothing to no one but me?




Interlude- it's pretty much this small motif followed by a G chord, repeated throughout 
this section. But I usually play it once and then use the chords I wrote out in the 
verse that follows the interlude.

Fadd9            Csus2    Fadd9
As hours move to minutes
                 C         Csus2
And minutes take longer to break
          Fadd9
I will be desperately awaiting
       C                 Csus2
But my tongue won't fall apart
               Fadd9
And we've been sitting here for hours
    C                Csus2
All alone and in the dark
Fadd9                     C          Csus2
 So let me think of to word it
Am/G                        Gsus4
 Is it too soon to say 'perfect'?
Fadd9                         C                    Csus2
 If I could find another thirty minutes somewhere
             Am/G
I'm sure everything would find me
              Gsus4
All that's left is just to sing





Chorus 2
            C
And I'll be here by the ocean

Just waiting for proof that there's
Am/G
sunsets and silhouette dreams
       Fadd9
All my sand castles fall
                  Csus2
like the ashes of cigarettes
    Gsus4                       Am/G Csus2
And every waves drags me to sea
         C
I could stand here for hours

Just to ask God the question
    Am/G
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
       Fadd9
With a tear in His voice

He said, "Son, that's the question."
          Gsus4
Does this deafening silence

mean nothing to no one but me?




Bridge
           Fadd9                  C
And you'll sing to me sweet until then
      Fadd9                  C
I may never sail Virginia again
          Fadd9         Gsus4
Alas this current moves slow for me
G#maj7-5           D7sus4             Fadd9
this much you must know... we'll meet again
               Fadd9
And I'll, I'll have you know I'm scared to death
Fadd9
  Tell me once again that you
     Am/G             Csus2
will love me till the death
             C
And should I die, you swear
     Gsus4             Fadd9
that you will come for me
                    Am/G           Csus2   C    Gsus4
As I fade away, you reach out your arms
     Fadd9
(And please don't let me go)
    Am/G   Csus2 C   Gsus4  Fadd9
And please don't let me go
     Fadd9
(And please don't let me go)
    Am/G   Csus2 C   Gsus4  Fadd9
And please don't let me go





Final Chorus
            C
And I'll be here by the ocean

Just waiting for proof that there's
Fadd9
sunsets and silhouette dreams
Csus2    Am/G
  All my sand castles fall
         Csus2    C
like the ashes of cigarettes
    Fadd9                  Csus2
And every wave drags me to sea
         C
I could stand here for hours

Just to ask God the question
    Fadd9
"Is everyone here make-believe?"
Csus2    Am/G
  With a tear in His voice
          Csus2           C
He said, "Son, that's the question."
          Fadd9
Does this deafening silence

mean nothing to no one but me?
