                This song is in a really weird key and it's fun to play.  I tried to match the chords
up with the words as best I could, but you'll have to listen to it to  get the timing
down exactly.  I'm not gonna tab out the intro  because I don't know it.  Make up your

Verse 1:              
               F#                 G                    F#                  G 
I heard a story about a boy  who was swept off the deck
F#                   G                           F# G F#
The sweeping tide swept the sea over his neck
(Repeat chord sequence)
But it did not end there, the boy began to swim
And dared to the sea that dared to invade him

Bm        F#    G          D
did you ever want to know me
did you ever feel like you could
it's a silent steeple
G                      Em
that carries us down
it's a silent steeple

(Back to verse riff)

Verse 2:
But the sea wouldn't so much as reply
So the boy swore to the ships that were fated to die
Red sky at night, sailors delight
Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning

sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back

Bridge:  (Same chords as chorus)
We were going with the wind in our hair
And we didn't want to look back 'cause if we did
We would not care
And if we all were to die now
Well it wouldn't be that bad
'Cause that boy in the waves said
he'd give us everything
Everything he had
To go on and trace that scar,
like we did ten years before

(Solo over verse, chorus chords)


sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back
sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back, sail on, take it back, sail on....

(Verse  riff out)

That F# to G sequence played on the verses is also the main riff of the song and it
starts up after that little intro that I haven't learned yet.  You can jam out on it
at the end if you want.  It's really fun to solo over. **I'm tabbing this song out from
memory and I think that part is right, but I'm not entirely sure.  Try it with the
recording and see if that works.
