-------------------------------------------------------------------

  Tabbed by:PJVillanueva


1
         G       Bm              Em     Em7    
I sat me down to write a simple story

      C            G            Am7 Am6 Am D
which maybe in the end became a song 

             F           Cadd9    C        B-9  B7
In trying to find the words which might begin it 

  Em    Emadd9  Em     Am                   C6 Cmaj13 C6 C D
I found these were the thoughts I brought along 


2
           G       Bm               Em    Em7
At first I took my weight to be an anchor 

    C              G                 Am7 Am6 Am D
and gathered up my fears to guide me round

           F       Cadd9  C     B-9   B7
but then I clearly saw my own delusion 

    Em       Emsus4 Em Am                  C6 Cmaj13 C6 C D
and found my struggles further bogged me down

 

3
              G   Bm                Em    Em7
In starting out I thought to go exploring

    C             G              Am7 Am6 Am D
and set my foot upon the nearest road 

          F         Cadd9    C        B-9    B7
In vain I looked to find the promised turning 

    Em  Emsus4 Em Am               C6 Cmaj13 C6 C D C G
but only saw how far I was from home



Middle eight 

   D           D/C                    G      C G C G
In searching I forsook the paths of learning 

   D                  D/C                  G    C G C G
and sought instead to find some pirate's gold 

   D              D/C                  G     C G C G
In fighting I did hurt those dearest to me 

    C               G                AM     D F Cadd9 C B-9 B7
and still no hidden truths could I unfold
                                            Em Emsus4 Em Am D

I sat me down to write a simple story

      C        G                Am7 Am6 Am D
which maybe in the end became a song 

               F        Cadd9   C     B-9    B7         
The words have all been writ by one before me

      Em    Emsus4 Em Am                    D  
We're taking turns in trying to pass them on

 B7/F#  Emsus4 Em         Am        C           G
Oh, we're taking turns in trying to pass them on
