                James Vincent McMorrow - If I Had a Boat
------------------------------
Key of G
Ear & Previous Tab Transcribes on Guitar by Jason Gatewood.

The intro's music is a trance like synth/strings arrangement - I don't think
it sounds right on guitar, so the intro just shows the lyrics, not any chords.
==============================
INTRO:
                         
Golden, golden, golden river run
                             
To the East then drop beneath the sun
   
And as the moon lies low and overhead
      
We're lost...

Em7 - D - G - D
Em7 - G - Em7...

VERSE 1:
Em7                      G
Burn slow, burning up the back wall
Em7                           G
Long roads, where the city meets the sky
Em7                          G
Most days, most days stay the sole same
Em7                                  G
Please stay, for this fear it will not die

CHORUS:
           C               G
If I had a boat, I would sail to you
               D              Am
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true
             C                 G
Once I had a dream, it died long before
                D             Am              Em
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore

VERSE 2:
Em7                        G
Down low, down amongst the thorn rows
Em7                                    G
Weeds grow, through the lilies and the vine
Em7                           G
Birds play, try to find their own way
Em7                               G
Soft clay, on your feet and under mine

CHORUS:
           C               G
If I had a boat, I would sail to you
               D              Am
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true
             C                 G
Once I had a dream, it died long before
                D             Am              Em     Em7
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore

BRIDGE:
                 C
Splitting at the seams
               G
Heaving at the brace
                D
Sheets all billowing
                    Am7
The breaking of the day
            C
Sea is not my friend
           G
And everyone conspires
           D
Still I choose to swim
            Am7
Slip beneath the tide

             C
Once I had a dream
             G
Once I had a hope
               D
That was yesterday
             Am7
Not so long ago
                C
This is not the end
                 G
This is just the world
               D
Such a foolish thing
               Am7
Such an honest girl

CHORUS:
           C               G
If I had a boat, I would sail to you
               D              Am
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true
             C                 G
Once I had a dream, it died long before
                D             Am
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore
