                I have watched a different couple live performances by him and concluded that the other
is only a bit off. Plus it doesnt give you the picking line at the beggining. So
i can make it a tiny tiny bit easier for the people trying to play this song. And i dont

PICK AS SHOWN ABOVE
(C)             (F)
I dont know you, but I want you

(C)                (F)
all the more for that.

(C)                  (F)
Words fall through me and always fool me

(C)            (F)
and I can't react.

On this part you can pick or single strum which ever makes you happy. Im not going to
the picking for this part becuase i have my own variation that i believe sounds much better.

CHORUS - REFER TO CHORDS AT TOP


(C)               (F)               (Am)
Take this sinking boat and point it home

               (F)
We've still got time

(C)                  (F)               (Am)

                (F)
You've made it known


***VERSE 2 - Back To Your Own Pickin or Stumming

(C)           (F)
Falling slowly, eyes that know me

(C)              (F)

Moods that take me and erase me

(C)                 (F)
and I'm painted black.

"You have suffered enough and warred with yourself, its time that you've won

****CHORUS - CHORDS AT TOP OF PAGE****


(C)               (F)               (Am)
Take this sinking boat and point it home

                (F)
We've still got time

(C)                  (F)               (Am)
Raise your hopefull voice you had the choice

               (F)
You've made it now

****STRUM THOUGH INTRO CHORDS ONCE*****

(C)               (G)               (Am)
Take this sinking boat and point it home

                (F)
We've still got time

(C)                 (G)                (Am)
Raise your hopefull voice you had the choice

               (F)
You've made it now

(C)           (G)              (Am)
Falling slowly, sing your melody

              (F)
I'll sing it loud

(C)  (F)   (Am)   (F)  Strum x2 and keep stummin F untill outro


Then you can configure your own outro. I like to use the intro and add a couple
notes in there to make it sound good. Anything will really work just as long as you end 
the F note.
