This is just how I play it.


Capo 4

[verse1]

               G C G         C           Em7   C G
We spotted the ocean  at the head of the trail
Dsus           Em7 C G  D/F#     A D/A A
where are we going,  so far away?   
               G C G         C           Em7   C G
Now somebody told me  that this is the place
Dsus           Em7 C G  D/F#     A D/A A
Where everything's better, and everything's safe


[chorus]
A           Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Walk on the ocean      Step on the stones
A           Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Flesh becomes water    Wood becomes bone


[verse2]
A            G C G     C             Em7   C G
Half an hour later  we packed up our things
Dsus           Em7 C G  D/F#             A             D/A A
Said we'd send letters, and all of those little things
A                     G C G           C               Em7   C G
And they knew we were lying, but they smiled just the same
Dsus           Em7 C G  D/F#     A D/A A
It seemed they'd already  forgotten we came

[chorus]
A           Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Walk on the ocean      Step on the stones
A           Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Flesh becomes water    Wood becomes bone

[chorus]
A           Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Walk on the ocean      Step on the stones
A           Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Flesh becomes water    Wood becomes bone

[bridge]
Em7 D/F# G D A
Em7 D/F# G D A
Em7 D/F# G D A

[verse3]
A               G C G            C              Em7   C G
Back at the homestead, where the air makes you choke
Dsus             Em7     C G     D/F#       A       D/A A
And people don't know you    and trust is a joke
A                  G C G          C           Em7     C G
We don't even have pictures, just memories to hold
Dsus                   Em7 C G  D/F#             A   (ring out)
That grow sweeter each season  as we slowly grow old

[chorus] (start at n.c.)
            Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Walk on the ocean      Step on the stones
A           Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Flesh becomes water    Wood becomes bone

[chorus] 
            Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Walk on the ocean      Step on the stones
A           Em7 D/F# G                  D       A
Flesh becomes water    Wood becomes bone

First off, capo on 4th fret. Thus all the 4's below are like open
strings. The chords used throughout the song are:

---(7)-------(4)------------------(4)---------6----|
----7---------7----------6---------7----------7----|
----4---------4----------6---------4----------6----|
----4---------6----------6---------6----------4----|
----6---------7----------4---------6----------4----|
----7------------------------------4----------6----|

    B         E          C#       G#m         F#

The parentheses signify notes that only get played occasionally.
For the F#, the 6 on the low E string may or may not be played, but
it's a nice way to follow the bass line. You'll probG#ly want to use
your thumb for that note.

The verse goes:

 | B  E | B  C# | G#m  E | B  C# | B  E | B  F# | C# | C# :|

The chorus goes:

 | G#m  F# | B | F# | C# | G#m  F# | B | F# | C# ||

In the measures with G#m and F#, the F# is only played on the last
beat, serving as a passing chord to the B (now you can see why the
bass line is important -- here it goes G# Bb B, kinda cool)

The chorus and solo have the same chords. The final verse has the
same chords and the other verses except the measure | G#m  E |
becomes | G#m F# |.

That's pretty much the whole song. All other Toad requests are
welcome, either by emailing or posting, cause Toad kicks butt.
