Pearl Jam -Love Boat Captain off Riot Act. 
17th December 2002.

One of my favourites from the new record. Good to know there are some proper bands still 
out there. I'd love to see Kroeger write a song this good. 

Had a couple of hours so I though I'd put it up. 

Pretty straightforward stuff. Simple chords with a few fills etc.
Arranged for one guitar
Standard tuning : E A D G B E 	Time Signature: 4/4

Intro/verse 1:
The guitar plays basically the same chords as the organ, 
except they're palm-muted in a repetetive rhtyhm, which you'll pick up easy from the CD.

Repeat this x2 with lyrics:
First comes love and then comes pain. Let the games begin.
Questions rise and answers fall insurmountable.

Lyrics:
Is this just another phase? Earthquakes making waves.
Trying to shake the cancer off. Stupid human beings.
Once you hold the hand of love it's all surmountable.


Mid-section:
Just strum these.

Verse 3 - Same chords as earlier (C, Cm, G, F):

It's an art to live with pain. Mix the light into grey.
Lost nine friends we'll never know. Two years ago today.
And if our lives became too long would it add to our regret?


Chorus 2 - Same chords (Emaj, D7)., but played looser and with more power. 

And the young they can lose hope cause they can't see beyond today.
The wisdom that the old can't give away.
Hey, constant recoil. Sometimes life don't leave you alone.


Mid-section 2 - Same again (A, C, G). Simple stuff really.

Hold me and make it the truth.
That when all is lost there will be you.
Cause to the universe I don't mean a thing.
And there's just one word that I still believe and it's love.
Love. love. love. love.


Followed by fill 2 (no repeat).

Outro - (C, Cm, G, F).
Love boat captain take the reigns. Steer us towards the clear.
I know it's already been sung. Can't be said enough.
Love is all you need. All you need is love.
Love. Love. Love.


That's it. Enjoy...
