Message in a Bottle chords 
The Police

Capo II *

Bm G A Em  2x
  
Bm     G    A    Bm        G       A   Em
Just a castaway, an island lost at sea-o
 Bm     G      A    Bm     G        A  Em
Another lonely day, no one here but me-o
Bm   G     A    Bm       G         A Em
More loneliness than any man could bear
Bm    G        A     Bm      G           A  Em 
Rescue need be near, or I'll fall into despair

G            C   D
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world
G            C   D
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world
Em          C                Em          C
I hope that someone gets my, I hope that someone gets my,
Em          C
I hope that someone gets my,

A  year has past since I wrote my note
Bm G           A     Bm    G        A Em
I  should have known right from the start
Bm   G        A       Bm  G
Only hope can keep me together
Bm       G         A         Bm       G          A  Em
Love can mend your life, but love can break your heart

G            C   D
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world
G            C   D
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world
Em          C                Em          C
I hope that someone gets my, I hope that someone gets my,
Em          C
I hope that someone gets my,

Bm     G        A        Bm      G            A 
Walked out this morning, don't believe what I saw
  Bm      G       A       Bm        G      A  Em
A hundred billion bottles washed up on the shore
Bm        G    A       G      A
Seems I'm not alone at being alone
  Bm      G       A         Bm      G     A Em
A hundred billion castaways looking for a cause

G            C   D
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world
G            C   D
I'll send an S.O.S. to the world
Em          C                Em          C
I hope that someone gets my, I hope that someone gets my,
Em          C
I hope that someone gets my,
