INTRO:

A              D          E
I awake from a long, deep sleep
A                           D         E
In a leaky little boat on a wide blue sea
F#m              D       E
I spy no island, rock or shore
A                              D                        E
And the sea, she’s a-comin’ to me through a hole in the floor


D                            A       E
And the tide come in and the tide go out
D                               A           E
And the waves they come toss my little boat about
F#m                            D        E
And the sky turn black and the sky turn blue
A                          D       E
I got no pail, no sail, no anchor, too
-
Just a leaky little boat


| A A D E | A A D 
|
This is the same as the first part of the verses. It is strummed up-down-up on the A's
D's. E can be just one stroke.

This fill is played over these chords and comes up more throughout the song with variations.

VERSE: | A A D E | A A D 
| F#m F#m D E | A A D 
|
The verse is strummed the same way as the above part. Up-down-up on the A's, D's, and
one strum on the E's.


And as I wake I look around
I have no notion where I’m bound
So many different colored boats I see
Are all leaky, lonely and driftin’
Just like me

Chorus:
D                            A       E
And the tide come in and the tide go out
D                               A           E
And the waves they come toss my little boat about
F#m                            D        E
And the sky turn black and the sky turn blue
A                          D       E
I got no pail, no sail, no anchor, too
-
Just a leaky little boat

F#m             D       E
I spy no island rock or shore
F#m             D       E
I spy no island rock or shore
F#m             D
I spy no island shore

                    E
And the sea keeps a-comin’ to me through a hole in the floor
-
Of my leaky little boat


Bridge:
A                D          E
Alone, adrift, together are we
A                   D         E
Slowly sinkin’ in a deep blue sea
F#m
But we smile and we wave
D                             E
And we say, “I’m afraid…and I love you…and here we go…”


D                            A       E
And the tide come in and the tide go out
D                               A           E
And the waves they come toss my little boat about
F#m                            D        E
And the sky turn black and the sky turn blue
A                          D       E
I got no pail, no sail, no anchor, too

Just a leaky little boat

At the end the music stops then there is just a rhythmic tap on the dummer's high hat
a few seconds. Then the guitar comes in with something like this:

| E A D A D |    Repeated several times 
lyrics.
