G                       Dsus/F#
I’ll start my life out on the sea 
Em7                 Cadd9
Away from waving families 
        G             Dsus/F#
Found washed in walking on the beach
        Em7           Cadd9
In the fishing town in june

          G                Dsus/F#
I’ll have all my words for company
  Em7                Cadd9
A few shards of new currency 
   G                 Dsus/F#
A lamp to show the evening in
     Em7             Cadd9
And wake me when it leaves 

          Em7              Dsus/F#
But here I am, still on these sands

G                           Dsus/F#
Well if these tall buildings part from me 
           Em7           Cadd9 
Then I’ll swim myself to sovereignty
       G              Dsus/F#
No people creeping, marching streets
       Em7           Cadd9
Will keep me from my seas 

G                          Dsus/F#
Well if all my things are packed and neat
Em7                   Cadd9
Quick stiff joint to help me sleep 
G                      Dsus/F#
Then I’ll wade out till it’s too deep
   Em7         Cadd9
And row myself away 

         Em7               Dsus/F#       Em7                                     
By here I am, still on these sands, with you.

         Dsus4      Cadd9
Here’s to your pier city 
        Dsus4   G G/F# Em7
as I save this monologue 


         Dsus4      Cadd9
Here’s to your pier city 
        Dsus4   G G/F# Em7
as I save this monologue 


G, Dsus/F#, Em7, Cadd9 x2

         Dsus4      Cadd9
Here’s to your pier city 
        Dsus4   G G/F# Em7
as I save this monologue 

         Dsus4      Cadd9
Here’s to your pier city 
        Dsus4   G G/F# Em7
as I save this monologue 

          G                    Dsus/F#
It seems weeks since you have talked to me
         Em7           Cadd9
Whilst I build my new economy 
    G          Dsus/F#
Of practicing excuses of 
       Em7           Cadd9
Why it is I have to leave 

            G                  Dsus/F#
I said if these tall buildings part from me 
      Em7             Cadd9 
But I guess that only works for me
       G                  Dsus/F#
Of working out why these streets 
       Em7         Cadd9
Have never been my home

   
       Dsus/F#               G
And yes I know, I will row alone

I will also point out this is how Jim plays it on the record, if you want how he plays it live (in the crowd) put a capo on 2nd, I prefer it with capo 2 but then again it is one of my favourite live songs ever.

Actually, his guitar is tuned down a whole step when playing live so he doesn't have to re-tune for songs like waitress, he uses a capo on 2nd to bring it up to standard.
