                            "Sail On Sailor"
     (J. Rieley / R. Kennedy / B. Wilson / T. Almer / V. D. Parks)


	G                       C/G   [2X]
	/ / /  / / /  / / /  / / / 

Verse 1:

	G                 C/G G               C/G
	I sailed an ocean,    unsettled ocean
	G                     C/G G
	Through restful waters    and deep commotion
	Ebmaj9 Am7/D     Ebmaj9  Am7/D
	Often frightened,    unenlightened
	Ebmaj7     F        G
	Sail on, sail on sailor

Verse 2:

	I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters
	Sail through the sorrows of life's marauders
	Unrepenting, often empty
	Sail on, sail on sailor


	D                 D#dim  Em
	Caught like a sewer rat alone but I sail
	D                      D#dim  Em
	Bought like a crust of bread, oh do I wail

Bridge 1:

	       Am7 Em         Am7 Em
	Seldom stumble, never crumble
	       Am7 Em           Am7 Em
	Try to tumble, life's a rumble
	          G   Am7           G  Am7
	Feel the stinging I've been given
	      G  Am7       G   C
	Never ending, unrelenting
	           Am7 Em          Am7 Em
	Heartbreak searing, always fearing
	      Am7 Em       Am7 Em
	Never caring, persevering
	Ebmaj7    F        G
	Sail on, sail on, sailor

Verse 3:

	I work the seaways, the gale-swept seaways
	Past shipwrecked daughters of wicked waters
	Uninspired, drenched and tired
	Sail on, wail on, sailor

Bridge 2:

	Always needing, even bleeding
	Never feeding all my feelings
	Damn the thunder, must I blunder
	There's no wonder all I'm under
	Stop the crying and the lying
	And the sighing and my dying
	Sail on, sail on sailor

Coda (repeat to fade):

	Ebmaj7    F        G
	Sail on, sail on, sailor

This is the handiwork of Andrew Rogers who sadly died in 2000. He was one of the prolific tab contributors in the early days of the internet. You'll find his work cut and pasted on lots of tab sites. Here's a link to an archive of his tabs:
