Song: The Yacht Club
Artist: Owl City
Album: All Things Bright and Beautiful

Capo: 1st Fret

This song is on the fast side, so you have to be quick with the chords! I 
played it by ear so it might not be 100% accurate, but it sounds pretty 
close at least. I also added all of the instrumental bits in the middle 
(they can be pretty tricky if you want to time it just right with the song) 
which are optional to play. Enjoy! 

[INTRO]
G C F C (4x)

[VERSE 1]
F        C      G         C      F
My raw candy passion is bitter-sweet,
  C        G
Onto the teeth,
  F                C               G
'Cause she would rather fall in chocolate,
      C        F      C             G
Than fall in love, especially with me.
    Dm    C         F   G
I stood under the waterfall,
        Dm     C       F   G   
With a kiwi pineapple parasol,
Dm     C                     F     G
As Cinderella dropped the crystal ball,                             
              Am     E7           C         Dm     F    Fm      
And made a concrete cavern of caterpillar concert hall.

[CHORUS]
                       G   Am  F    C     G   Am  C   F     
I wish that we could sail our sad days away, forever,
     G   Am   F        C     G    
In deep blue seas of paper maché,
         Am             C
(Let's dance in the moonlight!)
      F         G    Am  F    C    G    Am  C  F
 A barracuda chased our dog days away, forever,
       G   Am   F        C            G
Let's sink or swim, 'til we fall in love,
       Am            C
(And dance in the moonlight!)
      F             C
 When we join The Yacht Club.

[VERSE 2]
F              C     G            C            F
I would rather go swimming with great white sharks,
      C         G    C
Than wade in romance,
F                   C         G         C           F         C        G
'Cause I can never find the courage to ask her to dinner, or even to dance,
Dm            C         F    G   
Don't sweat under your overcoat,
            Dm          C          F      G
'Cause my heart can't hover this paddle boat,
 Dm              C              F      G
You'll hit the bottom of the highest note,
           Am   E7               C          Dm          F    Fm
And the chatty tree frogs will never wanna leave your throat.

[CHORUS]
                       G   Am  F    C     G   Am  C   F     
I wish that we could sail our sad days away, forever,
     G   Am   F        C     G    
In deep blue seas of paper maché,
         Am             C
(Let's dance in the moonlight!)
      F         G    Am  F    C    G    Am  C  F
 A barracuda chased our dog days away, forever,
       G   Am   F        C            G
Let's sink or swim, 'til we fall in love,
       Am            C
(And dance in the moonlight!)
      F             C
 When we join The Yacht Club.

[BRIDGE]
 Dm              C
(Let go of the world you know,
      F                 G
And plug in the party lights)
Dm                       C
Soak your cares in the solar flares,
       F                     G
That light up these island nights,
   Dm                    C
(Orange eclipse, I can taste your lips,
         F        G
In the citrus afternoon)
Dm                      C
If you can fly, don't stop at the sky,
                   F              G
'Cause there's footprints on the Moon.
         C
(It was you...)
