Verse 1-
C
Woke up at eight, started the fire
G
had a few drinks, we all felt inspired
Am
jumped in the stream, our shoes and canteens
F
the water was bitter cold
C
Laid in the raft till it started moving
G
the current just sang, the song was so soothing
Am                   F
we stopped along the way
Am                         F
on a beach in the sun, on a beautiful day



Chorus-
Am     F        C          D/Am     F
   Our boats collide, we'd feel the breeze
     Am    F         C        D/Am    F
We'd stay afloat and make the most of everything



Verse 2-
C
By noon we had swung the ropes in the woods
G
missed all danger, snakes, and the floods
Am
burnt by the rays and next to our legs,
F
the water so bitter cold
C
Lunch had been saved along with the lighters
G
wet cigarettes serve us as reminders
Am            F            Am                             F
never trust a man with the food, change of clothes, and a drink in his hand



Chorus-
Am     F        C          D/Am     F
   Our boats collide, we'd feel the breeze
     Am    F         C        D/Am    F
We'd stay afloat and make the most of everything
    Am        F        C           D/Am
The sun would set, the stars would shine
    Am          F           C        D/Am
the trees would shake, we'd all feel fine
      Am       F        C       D/Am      F
Let's take the moon and make it shine for everyone



Bridge-
G
We laughed away the sunburn
F                      C
as we laughed away the day
G
What we lost means nothing
F/Dm
for the memories will stay...



Verse 3-
C
Caught the last bus with no time to linger
G
the driver seemed to be missing a finger
Am                  F           Am                     F
I turned and looked away to the bus, gravel road and a beautiful day



Chorus-
Am     F        C          D/Am     F
   Our boats collide, we'd feel the breeze
     Am    F         C        D/Am    F
We'd stay afloat and make the most of everything
    Am        F        C           D/Am
The sun would set, the stars would shine
    Am          F           C        D/Am
the trees would shake, we'd all feel fine
      Am       F        C       D/Am      F
Let's take the moon and make it shine for everyone
      Am       F        C       D/Am      F
Let's take the moon and make it shine for everyone

This is my acoustic cover of it which received numerous requests for a tab (which is why I posted this tab) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xneqpliodLU&fmt=18

What exactly does D/Am refer to? I know D, and Am, but I don't know what you mean. Sounds wicked good otherwise!
