Wooden Ships


Intro:D A G  Em  

       Em7                Am9 
If you smile at me I will understand 
Because that is something 
Em7                              Am9  Em7          Am9  Em7  Am9 
Everybody everywhere does in the same language 
      Em7                                        Am9  
I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side 
There's just one thing I've got to know 
        Am9                   Em7            Am9                 
Can you tell me please, who won' 

Say, can I have some of your purple berries' 
 Am9                           Em7 
Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now 
Haven't got sick once 
                 Em7         Am9 
Probably keep us both alive 

D A G 

 Em                        D  A  D 
Wooden ships on the water, ve-ry free, and easy 
 Em                            D     A  D  
Easy, you know the way it's supposed to be 
 Em                            D   A  D 
Silver people on the shoreline let us be 
             Cadd9          Em9   Am9 
Talkin 'bout very free, and easy 
Em                    D     A   D 
Horror grips us as we watch you die 
Em                         D A       D  
All we can do is echo your anguished cries 
Em                 D  A     D 
Stare as all human feelings die 
       Cadd9              Em9	  Am9	 Em9	Am9 
We are leaving, you don't need us 

SOLO (play verse chords) 
Em                      D  A   D 
Go take a sister, then, by the hand 
Em                      D  A    D 
Lead her away from this foreign land 
Em                       D     A D 
Far away, where we might laugh a-gain 
We are leaving, you don't need us 

Em9	Am9	Em9	Am9	Em9	Am9	Em9	Am9 

And it's a fair wind 
Am9                                   Em9	Am9 
Blowin' warm out of the south over my shoulder 
           Em9                 Am9	Em9 
Guess I'll set a course and go
