Song: Ship of fools
Artist: World Party
Composer: Karl Wallinger
Album: Private revolution

Tabbed by DJ ('DiddyD' at ultimateGuitar.com)
25th Aug 2016

This is my arrangement intended as an acoustic guitar accompaniment,
to give an overall flavour of the backing, rather than a literal
transcribing of any keyboard part.

N.B.
Please ignore any pop-up chord boxes the website might
automatically suggest, and use the typed shapes shown below.

Dm    = xx0231   Gm = 355333   C  = x32010
Em7/D = xx0453   Bb = x13331   Em = 022000
Dm7   = xx0565   F  = 133211

[Verse 1]
               Dm     Em7/D         Dm7         Em7/D
We're setting sail       ...to the place on the map,
           Dm         Em7/D         Dm7         Em7/D
From which no one has ever returned------,
 Dm           Em7/D          Dm7           Em7/D
Drawn by the promise of the joker, and the fool,
        Dm           Em7/D       Dm7    Em7/D
By the light of the crosses that burn!


[Verse 2]
  Dm         Em7/D           Dm7          Em7/D
Drawn by the promise of the women and the lace,
         Dm            Em7/D       Dm7    Em7/D
And the gold, and the cotton, and pearls,
          Dm              Em7/D         Dm7         Em7/D
It's the place where they keep all the darkness you need,
             Dm           Em7/D                  Dm7       Em7/D
You sail a - way from the light of the world on this trip, baby!


[Bridge]
Dm7   Em7/D Dm7                         Dm7   Em7/D Dm7
                 You will pay tomorrow,
                           Dm7   Em7/D Dm7
You're gonna pay tomorrow,             yeah,
                           Dm7   Em7/D Dm7
You will pay tomorrow----------------------, oh, oh - oh!


[Chorus 1]
Gm     Bb      F                       C
Hoh!  Save me,  ...save me from to - morrow,
Gm                   Bb                      C
    I don't want to sail with this ship of fools, no, no, no -no,
Gm      Bb      F                      C
Oh, ...save me,    save me from to - morrow,
Gm                   Bb                     C
    I don't want to sail with this ship of fools, ...no, no,
                  Dm     Em7/D  Dm7        Em7/D
I want to run and hide            ...right now!

F       Em                Dm       Em7/D  Dm
    No, no - no - no, no, no----!


[Verse 3]
              Dm     Em7/D
Avarice and greed...
              Dm7       Em7/D     Dm          Em7/D  Dm7
....are gonna drive you over the endless sea,
          Em7/D       Dm              Em7/D
They will leave you drifting in the shallows,
     Dm7           Em7/D      Dm      Em7/D   Dm7  Em7/D
Or drowning in the oceans of history!


[Verse 4]
  Dm           Em7/D             Dm7         Em7/D
Travelling the world, you're in search of no good,
         Dm                    Em7/D           Dm7      Em7/D
But I'm sure you'll build your Sodom, like you knew you would,
      Dm            Em7/D           Dm7    Em7/D
Using all the good people for your galley slaves,
          Dm           Em7/D              Dm7         Em7/D
As your little boat struggles through the  ...warning waves!


[Bridge]
                 Dm7   Em7/D Dm7                       Dm7  Em7/D Dm7
But you don't ...pay,            you will pay tomorrow,
                           Dm7   Em7/D Dm7
You're gonna pay tomorrow,             yes,
                           Dm7   Em7/D Dm7
You're gonna pay tomorrow-------------------, oh, oh - oh!


[Chorus 2]
Gm    Bb        F                      C
Hoh!  Save me,     save me from to - morrow,
Gm                   Bb                      C
    I don't want to sail with this ship of fools, no, no, no -no -no,
Gm      Bb      F                      C
Oh, ...save me,    save me from to - morrow,
Gm                   Bb                     C
    I don't want to sail with this ship of fools, ...no, no, no -no,
Gm     Bb                    F                 C
    Where's it coming from?     Oh, where's it ...going to?
            Gm  Bb                       C
It's just a     ...it's just a ship of fools! Woh - oh -oh, ah-------!
