If I Had a Boat by Lyle Lovett

Capo 9.


G6  G6  Cadd9  Em7/B  G6  G6  Dsus2/F#  G6


Cadd9  Em7/B   G6
If  I  had  a  boat
     Cadd9    Em7/B    G6
I'd  go  out  on  the  ocean
    Cadd9  Em7/B   G6
And if  I  had  a  pony
    Em7            Dsus2/F#
I'd ride him on my boat
    Cadd9      Em7/B  G6
And we  could  all  together
Cadd9    Em7/B    G6
Go  out  on  the  ocean
G6         Dsus2/F#   G6
Me upon my pony on my boat

   G6                     Cadd9 Em7/B     G6
If I were Roy Rogers, I'd sure  enough be single
           G6                           Dsus2/F#                                        
I couldn't bring myself to marrying old Dale
     G6                              Cadd9  Em7/B        G6
It'd just be me and Trigger, we'd go riding through them movies
          G6             Dsus2/F#        G6
Then we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail


The mystery masked man was smart
He got himself a Tonto
'Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto he was smarter
And one day said kemo sabe
Kiss my ass I bought a boat
I'm going out to sea


And if I were like lightning
I wouldn't need no sneakers
I'd come and go wherever I would please
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree
And I'd scare 'em by the light pole
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea


Personally, I also think it sounds good if you play Cadd9 as: 032000
and played Em7 as Em7/B if your hands are too big to play Cadd9 and Em7 while capo-ing the 9th fret.
