Capo on 4th fret!

I used to claim in this very spot that the picking was very easy. But after 
getting some E-Mails (and listening to the song closely) I must say it is indeed a 
bit tricky. So I tabbed it out. Note that this is still a slightly simplified 
version. The guitarist plays some more bass notes, but if they were in the tab 
that would only confuse, so I left them out. It will sound great if you play it like this.

If you want the 100% full real tab (or have any other comments) write me at

Intro: C / Am / G / C

C            Am             G             C
If I was a sailor I would sail you out to sea
C                   F            C        G
Take you across the ocean, ask you to marry me
Am             F             G            C
Oh if I was sailor I would sail you home to me


And if I was a soldier I would march to war for you
I'd face every bullet and cannonball that flew
Oh if I was a soldier I would wage a war for you
And if I was a jailer I would lock you away
Then I'd have the key to see you each and every day
Oh if I was a jailer I would still have you today
And if I was a rich man I'd buy you flowers every day
But I am a poor man so I'll pick them on the way
Oh if I was a rich man I would pay to make you to stay.

Chorus:

Am                   Em
I've wasted so much time
F                   G              C
Writing songs and playing on my guitar
Am                   Em
I've wasted so much love
F                    G             C
Now I wish I'd never learnt to play a note.

And if I had an aeroplane then I'd fly you away
Maybe we go to rome or paris for the day
Oh if I had an aeroplane then I'd whisk you away
And if I was a betting man I'd bet you love me too
I'd bet everything I had for the chance to be with you
Oh if I was a betting man my odds are 9-2.

Am                   Em
I've wasted so much time
F                   G              C
Writing songs and playing on my guitar
Am                   Em
I've wasted so much love
F                    G             C
Now I wish I'd never learnt to play a note.
Am                   G               Am
Yeah I wish I'd never learnt to play a note
F                    G              C
Oh I wish I'd never learnt to play a note.

(Solo + Chorus)

And if I was a writer I would write a book on you
I'd tell them all the stories of the things we used to do
Oh if I was a writer I would write a book on you
And if I was a painter I'd paint portraits of you
Hang them in the galleries like all good painter do
Oh if I was a painter I'd paint potraits of you.

(Chorus)
