1st fret
I saw this song was wanted on this page, so I sat down attempting to figure out the 
chords. I know it's not 100% correct, but it's a beginning. Hope you guys want to give me 
feedback! :-)

Capo 1th fret

G  A  Bm  D x2

G A Bm D Em A


G                A           Bm              D
Can’t swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
G           A              Bm          D
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
G                       A                Bm                   D
I stayed there till the air was clear I was bored and out of tears
Em                             A
Then I saw you washed up on the shore

G          A             Bm           D
I offered you my coat, thank god this luck can flow
G               A                Bm            D
Crazy how that shipwreck met my ship was coming in
G                 A               Bm           D
We talked till the sun went down, love on the fugit sound
Em                      F#m
My treasure map was on your skin

Bm            D      A           G
Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Bm       D       A          F#m
Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Bm     D                A                  Em
Till I got her, had I known it could come through
                      A                    G    A   Bm
I would have wished in ’92, for a mermaid just like you

Whoa, just like you, whoa

Sharks green with envy they wonder what you see in me
Funny but sometimes can’t help but wonder that as well
Now life is a holiday, making up for the years I paved
The way to this heavenly bay it went through Hell


Rescued you by the banyan tree, all the girl fish in the sea
could not care to 
they don’t have a handle on you, they don’t have a scandal on you
I don't like those sandals on you
savin' me was B.I.G., all the boyfish in the sea
They all wish that they could be me

Can’t swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
