          ------------verse-------------
 (play verse chord progression as shown above while singing;
  I've included chord names but look at tab for voicings)

 Dsus2  D         Dsus2  D
 seventy three men sailed up
          E          E7    E F F#
 from the san francisco bay
 G7
 rolled off of their ship
      G6             Dsus2 D   Dsus2 D
 and heres what they had to say
       Dsus2  D              Dsus2  D
 we're calling everyone to ride along
 E      E7       E F F#
 to another shore
 G7                     G6
 we can laugh our lives away
        Dsus2  D       Dsus2  D
 and be free once more
 Dsus2  D          Dsus2  D
 no one heard them calling
 E            E7    E F F#
 no one came at all
 G7
 cause they were too busy watching
   G6      Dsus2 D        D5  Dsus4  D ('end of verse'
 those old raindrops fall                  chords)
 Dsus2  D       Dsus2  D
 as a storm was blowin
 E            E7      E F F#
 out on a peaceful sea
 G7                        G6    Dsus2 D   D5  Dsus4  D
 seventy three men sailing on to history

         -----------(chorus)------------
 D                             A
 ride captain ride   upon your mystery ship
 A  B  C                                  D
 be  amazed at the friends  you're having on your trip
 D                             A
 ride captain ride   upon your mystery ship
 A   B   C                            D
 on your way  to a world  that others might have missed

  (next, play pre-solo riff 1x, and then play D-Bb-D-Bb-A chords
   during 1st solo...)

  (...now go back and sing/play 1st eight lines of verse (up to
   and including "and be free once more" line...))

  (..finally, sing/play chorus again 2x, and then just play
     chorus chords as 2nd solo fades out)
