Walk On The Ocean Chords by Toad The Wet Sprocket
Tabbed by Big Daddy Glenn

I saw many good attempts and one really close one. As simple as this song sounds it
has a complex progression with a tight walking bass line. Too many people are playing a
or
Em where the B is. Follow these chord forms and the progression listed and you’ll hear 
from the other versions. The key on the B is to be sure you don’t play the
string and to strum through the chord and play the open D in the chord. Realize that all
notes are relative to the Capo on the 4th fret.

VERSE 1: (The first A is played with the 3’s on the B and E strings)
               G C G            A           Em C  G
We spotted the ocean  at the head of the trail
    A            G C G            F#/D      A Asus4 A
But where are we going,     we're so far away
         G C G            A           Em F#/D G
Somebody told me     that this is the place
      A  B C G          F#/D            A Asus4 A
where everything's better     and everything's safe

CHORUS: (Play this Em open without the fingers in the “G” position and this a “D”
the “F#” root, A is open as well)
            Em—F#--G               D    A
Walk on the Ocean    Step on the stone
              Em—F#--G                D   A
Flesh becomes water    Wood becomes bone

VERSE 2:
               G C G       A             Em C G
A half an hour later    We packed up our things
   A              G C G          F#/D            A Asus4 A
We said we'd send letters    And all of those little things
                      G C G             A               Em F#/D G
And they knew we were lying    But they smiled just the same
    A            B C G         F#/D         A Asus4 A
It seemed they'd already    Forgotten we came

CHORUS:(2X)

BRIDGE:
(Play the chords of the chorus twice)

VERSE 3:
                G C G                  A             Em C G
Now back at the homestead    Where the air makes you choke
      A            G C G           F#/D          A Asus4 A
Where people don't know you    And trust is a joke
                G C G            A           Em F#/D G
Don't even have pictures    Just memories to hold
         A            B C G           F#/D           A
It grows sweeter each season    As we slowly grow old

OPTIONAL CHORUS - repeat until fade
