All of the chords here are pretty straightforward.  G/F# is just your
usual G major with an F# in the bass (that's 2nd fret on the low E
string).  Instead of specifying major and minor, I've used capital letters
for major and lower-case for minor.

On the album there's a lot of extra stuff - electic guitar, violin, bass,
drums.  It does OK with just voice and acoustic guitar, though.

I wrote out the rhythm for the intro; for the rest you're on your own.


Intro:
G / G/F# / e / e / A / A / D / A / D / A /

       G            G/F#        e
When I went to your town on the wide open shore,

   A                    D                         G
Oh I must confess I was drawn, I was drawn to the ocean,

  G/F#                e      A
I thought it spoke to me, it said, ³Look at us,

          b             G            A              b                G
We're not churches, not schools, not skating ponds, swimming pools,

                         e
And we have lost people, havenıt we though?²

    A                         D
Oh, that's what the ocean can know of a body,

    G                          A                               f#
And that's when I came back to town, this town is a song about you.

G               A  b         G    A              b   G       A
You don't know how lucky you are, you don't know how much I adore you,

b           G         A             e          A       D
You are the welcoming back from the ocean.


G        G/F#        e
  I went back to the ocean today,

        A                     D                        G
With my books and my papers I went to the rocks by the ocean,

        G/F#            e               A
But the weather changed quickly, oh the ocean said,

              b         G             A             b
³What are you trying to find, I donıt care, Iım not kind,

     G                              e
Iıve bludgeouned your sailors, Iıve spat out their keepsakes,

        A                   D
Oh itıs ashes to ashes, but always the ocean,²

        G                        A                               f#
But the ocean can't come to this town, this town is a song about you.

G              A   b         G    A              b   G       A
You don't know how lucky you are, you don't know how much I adore you,

b           G         A             e         A        D
You are the welcoming back from the ocean.


Interlude: (La la)
G  G/F#  A  b  (4 times)
G  e     A  D

        G                         A                                      f#
And the ones that can know you so well are the ones that can swallow you whole.

G        A        b         G     A             b          G             A
I have a good and I have an evil, I thought the ocean, the ocean thought
nothing,

b           G                       e         A      D     
You are the welcoming back from the ocean.


G          G/F#      e
  I didn't go back today,

  A                       D                    G
I wanted to show you that I was more land than water,

  G/F#         e           A
I went to pick flowers.  I brought them to you,

        b           G                A           b
Look at me, look at them, with their salt up the stem,

        G                           e
But you frowned when I smiled and I tried to arrange them,

    A                          D
You said, ³Let me tell you the song of this town,²

           G                    A                                         f#
You said, ³Everything closes at five.  After that, well, you just got the bars,

G              A   b            G
You donıt know how precious you are,

A        b               G            A
walking around with your little shoes dangling,

b        G       A              e
I am the one who lives with the ocean,


              A                                                    f#
It's where we came from, you know, and sometimes I just want to go back.

G       A       b                G
After a day, we drink ıtil weıre drowning,

A           b           G           A
walk to the ocean, wade in with our workboots,

b           G                            D
Wade in our workboots, try to finish the job.

G              A   b            G    A        b       G              A
You don't know how precious you are, I am the one who lives with the ocean.

b              G   A        b     G              A   b        e       A       D
You don't know how I am the one.  You don't know how I am the one.²


Interlude: (La la)
