James Vincent McMorrow - If I Had A Boat Chords

Intro:   
G               Em7          G    
Golden, golden, golden river run    
G                Em7              G    
To the East then drop beneath the sun    
    G                Em7         G    
And as the moon lies low and overhead    
      - D -  Em7    
We're lost    
     
Em7 - D - G - D    
Em7 - G - Em7...    
     
Verse 1:    
Em7                      G    
Burn slow, burning up the back wall    
Em7                           G    
Long roads, where the city meets the sky    
Em7                          G    
Most days, most days stay the sole same    
Em7                                  G    
Please stay, for this fear it will not die    
     
Chorus:    
           C               G    
If I had a boat, I would sail to you    
               D              Em    
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true    
             C                 G    
Once I had a dream, it died long before    
                D             Em          - Em -    
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore    
     
Verse 2:    
Em7                        G    
Down low, down amongst the thorn rows    
Em7                                    G    
Weeds grow, through the lilies and the vine    
Em7                           G    
Birds play, try to find their own way    
Em7                               G    
Soft clay, on your feet and under mine    
     
Chorus:    
           C               G    
If I had a boat, I would sail to you    
               D              Em    
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true    
             C                 G    
Once I had a dream, it died long before    
                D             Em          - Em7 -    
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore    
     
Bridge:    
                 C    
Splitting at the seams    
               G    
Heaving at the brace    
                D    
Sheets all billowing    
                    Em7    
The breaking of the day    
            C    
Sea is not my friend    
           G    
And everyone conspires    
           D    
Still I choose to swim    
            Em7    
Slip beneath the tide    
     
             C    
Once I had a dream    
             G    
Once I had a hope    
               D    
That was yesterday    
             Em7    
Not so long ago    
                C    
This is not the end    
                 G    
This is just the world    
               D    
Such a foolish thing    
               Em7    
Such an honest girl    
     
Chorus:    
           C               G    
If I had a boat, I would sail to you    
               D              Em7    
Hold you in my arms, ask you to be true    
             C                 G    
Once I had a dream, it died long before    
                D             Em7    
Now I'm pointed north, hoping for the shore
