James Vincent McMorrow - If I Had a Boat
------------------------------
Key of F
Ear-transcribed on ukulele by Neil Killer.
------------------------------

INTRO:
F               Am7          F
Golden, golden, golden river run
F                Am7              F
To the East then drop beneath the sun
    F                Am7         F
And as the moon lies low and overhead
      (G)  Am7
We're lost

Am7 - G - F - G
Am7 - F - Am7...

VERSE 1:
Am7                      F
Burn slow, burning up the back wall
Am7                           F
Long roads, where the city meets the sky
Am7                          F
Most days, most days stay the sole same
Am7                                  F
Please stay, for this fear it will not die

CHORUS:
           F               F
If I had a boat, I would sail to you
               G              Am
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true
             F                 F
Once I had a dream, it died long before
                G             Am          (Am)
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore

VERSE 2:
Am7                        F
Down low, down amongst the thorn rows
Am7                                    F
Weeds grow, through the lilies and the vine
Am7                           F
Birds play, try to find their own way
Am7                               F
Soft clay, on your feet and under mine

CHORUS:
           F               F
If I had a boat, I would sail to you
               G              Am
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true
             F                 F
Once I had a dream, it died long before
                G             Am          (Am7)
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore

BRIDGE:
                 F
Splitting at the seams
               F
Heaving at the brace
                G
Sheets all billowing
                    Am7
The breaking of the day
            F
Sea is not my friend
           F
And everyone conspires
           G
Still I choose to swim
            Am7
Slip beneath the tide

             F
Once I had a dream
             F
Once I had a hope
               G
That was yesterday
             Am7
Not so long ago
                F
This is not the end
                 F
This is just the world
               G
Such a foolish thing
               Am7
Such an honest girl

CHORUS:
           F               F
If I had a boat, I would sail to you
               G              Am7
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true
             F                 F
Once I had a dream, it died long before
                G             Am7
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore
