Sea Stories
From "A Sailor's Guide To Earth"
Tabbed by thatchadmiller (Twitter)


If you want to play this in E position, capo 1 and transpose down one step
(F=E, Bb=A, C=B)


Verse 1
F
Basic was just like papaw says:
            Bb                      F
"Keep your mouth shut and you'll be fine"
                                                      C
Just another enlisted egg in the bowl for Uncle Sam's beater
         F
When you get to Dam Neck hear a voice in your head
         Bb                  F
Saying, "my life's no longer mine"
                           Bb   F
Have you running with some SAD SOG
C       F
BMF sandeaters


Verse 2
F                                   Bb              F
Setting out on them high seas feels just like being born
                                                                C
That first port call in Thailand feels like a pollywog turning nineteen
            F                                                Bb                  F
They've got king cobras fighting in boxing rings and all the angels play Connect Four
Bb                    F            C                     F
Seems like a sailor's paradise but turns out to be a bad dream


Verse 3 
F                                            Bb            F
Now you hit the ground running in Tokyo from Kawasaki to Ebisu
                                                        C
Yokosuka, Yokohama, and Shinjuku, Shibuya, Ropongi, and Harajuku
         F                   
Aw, from Pusan and Ko Chang, Pattaya to Phuket
     Bb                 F
From Singapore to Kuala Lumpur
Bb                 F                         C           F                 
Seen damn near the whole damn world from the inside of a bar


Chorus
         Bb                       F
I've got sea stories, they're all true
                                                    C
Might seem a little bit far-fetched but why would I lie to you
         Bb                             F
Memories make forever stains, still got salt running through my veins
                    C                  F
I've got sea stories and my shellback, too


Solo (coming soon)


Verse 4 
F                                        Bb              F
Sometimes Sirens send a ship off course, horizon gets so hazy
                                                     C
Maybe get high, play a little GoldenEye on that old 64
       F         
And if you get sick and can't manage the kick
        Bb
And get yourself kicked out the navy
                 F
You'll spend the next year trying to score
             Bb
From a futon life raft on the floor
        F
And the next fifteen trying to figure out
         C                 F
What the hell you did that for
                                          C            F
But flying high beats dying for lies in a politician's war
