[Intro] x2
G                       C/G

[Verse 1]
G                 C/G G               C/G
I sailed an ocean,    unsettled ocean
G                     C/G G
Through restful waters    and deep commotion
Ebmaj9 Am7/D     Ebmaj9  Am7/D
Often frightened,    unenlightened
Ebmaj7     F        G
Sail on, sail on sailor

[Verse 2]
I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters
Sail through the sorrows of life's marauders
Unrepenting, often empty
Sail on, sail on sailor

D                 D#dim  Em
Caught like a sewer rat alone but I sail
D                      D#dim  Em
Bought like a crust of bread, oh do I wail

[Bridge 1]
       Am7 Em         Am7 Em
Seldom stumble, never crumble
       Am7 Em           Am7 Em
Try to tumble, life's a rumble
          G   Am7           G  Am7
Feel the stinging I've been given
      G  Am7       G   C
Never ending, unrelenting
           Am7 Em          Am7 Em
Heartbreak searing, always fearing
      Am7 Em       Am7 Em
Never caring, persevering
Ebmaj7    F        G
Sail on, sail on, sailor

[Verse 3]
I work the seaways, the gale-swept seaways
Past shipwrecked daughters of wicked waters
Uninspired, drenched and tired
Sail on, wail on, sailor

[Bridge 2]
Always needing, even bleeding
Never feeding all my feelings
Damn the thunder, must I blunder
There's no wonder all I'm under
Stop the crying and the lying
And the sighing and my dying
Sail on, sail on sailor

(repeat to fade)
Ebmaj7    F        G
Sail on, sail on, sailor

This is the handiwork of Andrew Rogers who sadly died in 2000. He was one of the prolific tab contributors in the early days of the internet. You'll find his work cut and pasted on lots of tab sites. Here's a link to an archive of his tabs:
