     ~ Queens of the Stone Age - I sat by the Ocean (acoustic version) ~



Intro: C / Am / D / E




E                       E/F# G              D               E
     I sat by the ocean        and drank a potion, baby to erase you.
C                        Am                      E
     Face down in the Boulevard, yet I couldn't face you.
E                                 E/F# G             D
     There ain't no use in crying.       It doesn't change anything,
              E
     So baby what good does it do?
C                            Am
     Your friends, they all sympathize.
            E
     Maybe, I don't need them too.

  C                  E
Imagine I'd be your one and only
  C                     E
Instead I'm the lonely one

C    D        E 
You, me and a lie.
Am          D             E                     C
Silence is closer. We're passing ships in the night.

E
    There's nowhere to run away.

E/F# G Said,            D                           E
      “Boy if you want love, you'll have to go and find it with someone new.”
    C                       Am                  E 
      “Do you know who you really are? Are you sure it's really you?”
E
       Lies are a funny thing.
E/F# G                           D                      E
       They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you.
    C              Am                   E
       Time wounds all the heals as we fade out of view.

C                    E
Imagine I'd be your one and only
C                       E
Instead I'm the lonely one

C    D         E
You, me and a lie.                                      |
Am          D                E                  C       |  x2
Silence is closer.  We're passing ships in the night.   |


E         C
Into the night,
E                     C
Left with nowhere to hide.


C / Am / D / E   x2


Am           D
Closer and closer.
        E                    C
We're crashing ships in the night


C / Am / D / E    x2   (end on E)

In order for it to sound correct with the acoustic recording, you have to transpose the song so that the first chord is a G#. Also, the amount of times you play each part is slightly off. It's a good basis for learning the song though. Just listen to see if it sounds correct with the recording.

Playing this acoustically is very tough, but this doesn't seem right. A number of the chords are not standard. Just watch and listen to Troy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4E4S0XWPMgQ

Sounds pretty good if you use these chords with a capo on 4.
