About this tab version

Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Tuning: DADF#Ad (Open D)
Capo: 9th fret

This song is played in Open D tuning (DADF#Ad from low to high), with a capo on the 9th fret.
Below, I've provided the names of the chords relative to the capo, as well as how they are voiced.
If you don't feel like messing around with retuning your guitar, you can find the absolute chord names
by transposing the tab down three half steps and strum along with those instead.

These are the chord voicings used throughout the plucked section in the bridge:

     D   D6  Gmaj9  Dmaj9

F#|--3---0----0------0-----|
D |--4---0----0------2-----|
A |--5---2----0------0-----|
D |--0---0----5------0-----|

I've given the picking pattern for the bridge below (4/4 time, a space of two dashes (--)
indicates a sixteenth note). In practice it is not played as precisely as I have written it; the
notes are plucked as you are strumming, so there are always open notes resonating.
I've also marked out how the plucked chord changes correspond with the lyrics.

[Intro]
D Dmaj9 Em11/D (x4)

[Verse 1]
D          Dmaj9
I got high
                  Em11/D
With an art teacher of mine
D
I learned how to paint
Dmaj9                         Em11/D
Portraits and landscapes with perspective

[Verse 2]
D
But I've been sitting here
                   Dmaj9
The better part of eighteen years
                  Em11/D
Blank stare blank canvas
D                Dmaj9
In need of a new view
            Em11/D            D  D
Of some new scenery to render

[Chorus 1]
          Gmaj7 D*
There's a boat  leaving
         Gmaj7
Where it goes
N.C.
I don't know

[Verse 3]
D Dmaj9 Em11/D
D Dmaj9 Em11/D
                 D
I've been buried alive
Dmaj9                          Em11/D
      My history teacher by my side
       D
Lest I forget those mistakes
Dmaj9                    Em11/D
That better men have made
                            D
The battles fought and lost
Dmaj9                         Em11/D
      Small victories at what cost?
    D
The curriculum is dated
   Dmaj9
My inspiration fading
Em11/D                    D  D
       A slow setting sun

[Chorus 2]
          Gmaj7  D*
There's a boat   leaving
         Gmaj7
Where it goes
              D*
Well, I don't know
          Gmaj7
But if it floats
    Dmaj7  D/A
I'm get  - ting on
Gmaj7
      With or without you

[Bridge]
D D6 Gmaj9
D D6 Gmaj9
D                D6            Gmaj9
   The winds are strong enough
D                          D6      Gmaj9
   Our native tongues will fail us
Dmaj9   Gmaj9            Dmaj9  Gmaj9
Oh, the pleasure I would take
   Dmaj9    Gmaj9             D*
In renaming       everything

[Chorus 3]
Gmaj7 D*
          Gmaj7 D*
There are boats leaving
           Gmaj7
Where they go
        D*
I don't know
           Gmaj7
But it's a chance
       Dmaj7  D/A   Gmaj7
To see some - thing new
Dmaj7 D/A          Gmaj7
          Will you come with me?

[Outro]
Dmaj7 D/A Gmaj7
Dmaj7 D/A Gmaj7
