Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
The key to this song is the capo.

This is played capoed to the 2nd fret.  There may still be a few incorrect notes, but
root cords are dead on.

I'm going to refer to cords by the position you are holding your hand, not by their
name.  The chord's actual name is a whole step higher.

Chords Used:

C (D):

C#|-1-|
A |-0-|
E |-2-|
B |-3-|
F#|-3-|

G (A): I'm not completly sure about how he fingers this one, I just use the bass notes
let the highs ring open. I think the High E kind of throws it off though so I don't play it.

F (G): Letting the high E string ring open is what makes the cord sound so good.  Don't
play it as an F bar chord.  If you can figure out how to hit the 1st fret on the B and
E strings, and let the High E ring open, then do it, but from what I can hear in the 
he doesn't do it, so neither do I.

Verse 1:
C
Woke up at eight, started the fire
G
had a few drinks, we all felt inspired
Am
jumped in the stream, our shoes and canteens
F
the water was bitter cold
C
Laid in the raft till it started moving
G
the current just sang, the song was so soothing
Am                   F
we stopped along the way
Am                         F
on a beach in the sun, on a beautiful day


Chorus:
Am     F        G          D        F
   Our boats collide, we'd feel the breeze
     Am    F         G        D       F
We'd stay afloat and make the most of everything

Verse 2:
C
By noon we had swung the ropes in the woods
G
missed all danger, snakes, and the floods
Am
burnt by the rays and next to our legs,
F
the water so bitter cold
C
Lunch had been saved along with the lighters
G
wet cigarettes serve us as reminders
Am            F            Am                             F
never trust a man with the food, change of clothes, and a drink in his hand

Chorus: Extended
Am     F        G          D        F
   Our boats collide, we'd feel the breeze
     Am    F         G        D       F
We'd stay afloat and make the most of everything
    Am        F        G           D
The sun would set, the stars would shine
    Am          F           G        D
the trees would shake, we'd all feel fine
      Am       F        G       D         F
Let's take the moon and make it shine for everyone

Bridge:
G
We laughed away the sunburn
F                      C
as we laughed away the day
G
What we lost means nothing
F-bridge
for the memories will stay...

Verse 3:
C
Caught the last bus with no time to linger
G
the driver seemed to be missing a finger
Am                  F           Am                     F
I turned and looked away to the bus, gravel road and a beautiful day

Chorus:
Am     F        G          D        F
   Our boats collide, we'd feel the breeze
     Am    F         G        D       F
We'd stay afloat and make the most of everything
    Am        F        G           D
The sun would set, the stars would shine
    Am          F           G        D
the trees would shake, we'd all feel fine
      Am       F        G       D         F
Let's take the moon and make it shine for everyone
      Am       F        G       D         F
Let's take the moon and make it shine for everyone

Sounds alittle off, but much better than the others.

this is almost perfect except for in the chorus, it sounds like it should be Am F C G instead of Am F G D
