Tuning:Standard Tuning - Capo 2

Here it is.. An Easy Way to play the Classic tune Message in a Bottle. The original
version of this song is done starting on C#m.  For some people it can be more difficult.
came up with this arrangement to make it a bit easier but still keeping the original 
key. Here's a link to a video for the song as well.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQW6W6wO7aU

Bm   G   A   Em (Repeats through out the verse)

[Verse 1]
Just a castaway, an island lost at sea, oh
Another lonely day, with no one here but me, oh
More loneliness than any man could bear
Rescue me before I fall into despair, oh

[Chorus]
G            Cadd9         D
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world   2X
Em          Cadd9
I hope that someone gets my      3X
Bm          Gmaj7      Bm/F#
Message in a bottle, yeah
Bm          Gmaj7      Bm/F#      Em
Message in a bottle, yeah

[Verse 2]
A year has passed since I wrote my note
But I should have known this right from the start
Only hope can keep me together
Love can mend your life but
Love can break your heart

[Chorus]
G            Cadd9         D
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world   2X
Em          Cadd9
I hope that someone gets my      3X
Bm          Gmaj7      Bm/F#
Message in a bottle, yeah
Bm          Gmaj7      Bm/F#      Em
Message in a bottle, yeah

[Verse 3]
Walked out this morning, don't believe what I saw
Hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore
Seems I'm not alone in being alone
Hundred billion castaways, looking for a home

[Chorus]
G            Cadd9         D
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world   2X
Em          Cadd9
I hope that someone gets my      3X
Bm          Gmaj7      Bm/F#
Message in a bottle, yeah
Bm          Gmaj7      Bm/F#      Em
Message in a bottle, yeah

Not to shabby for some campfire strumming.
