Train - Mermaid (California 37, 2012.)

Ab, Bb, Cm, Gm

      Ab                  Bb Cm                Gm
Can't swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
     Ab              Bb        Cm          Gm
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before
     Ab                     Bb           Cm                Gm
I stayed there till the air was clear, I was bored and out of tears
     Fm                              Bb  G
Then I saw you washed up on the shore

  Ab          Bb             Cm               Gm
I offered you my coat, thank Goddess love can float
      Ab              Bb               Cm           Gm
Crazy how that shipwreck meant my ship was coming in
   Ab                     Bb           Cm           Gm
We talked till the sun went down, love on the Puget sound
   Fm                         G
My treasure map was on your skin

Cm            Ab  Eb Bb
Beauty in the water, angel on the beach
Cm      Ab      Eb          Gm
Ocean’s daughter, I thought love was out of reach
Cm     Ab     Eb      Bb
Till I got her, had I known it could come true
Fm                       G                   Ab   Bb  Cm
I would have wished in '92 for a mermaid just like you

    Gm    Ab   Bb  Cm    Gm
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 paid
The way to this heavenly bay, it went through hell


        Bb                              Fm
Rescued you by the banyan tree, all the girl fish in the sea
Couldn't hold a handle to you, they don’t have a handle on you
           Eb                                 B
They don't have a scandal on you, I love Ecco sandals on you
       Bb                     Fm
Savin' me was B.I.G., all the boy fish in the sea
     Ab                            G
They all wish that they could be me

      Ab                  Bb Cm                Gm
Can't swim so I took a boat, to an island so remote
     Ab              Bb        Cm      G
Only Johnny Depp has ever been to it before


Just like you 2x

Ends on Ab

This is the closest one on here, but theres a couple of errors. Its far easier if you capo it at the 3rd fret and play it in Am, just submitted a version which is a bit friendlier on the fingers

lower the tone by 3 and put capo on second fret it sounds good to me that way
