     (J. Rieley / R. Kennedy / B. Wilson / T. Almer / V. D. Parks)


G                       C/G   [2X]

Verse 1:

G                 C/G G               C/G
I sailed an ocean,    unsettled ocean
G                     C/G G
Through restful waters    and deep commotion
Ebmaj9 Am7/D     Ebmaj9  Am7/D
Often frightened,    unenlightened
Ebmaj7     F        G
Sail on, sail on sailor

Verse 2:

I wrest the waters, fight Neptune's waters
Sail through the sorrows of life's marauders
Unrepenting, often empty
Sail on, sail on sailor


D                 D#dim  Em
Caught like a sewer rat alone but I sail
D                      D#dim  Em
Bought like a crust of bread, oh do I wail

Bridge 1:

       Am7 Em         Am7 Em
Seldom stumble, never crumble
       Am7 Em           Am7 Em
Try to tumble, life's a rumble
          G   Am7           G  Am7
Feel the stinging I've been given
      G  Am7       G   C
Never ending, unrelenting
           Am7 Em          Am7 Em
Heartbreak searing, always fearing
      Am7 Em       Am7 Em
Never caring, persevering
Ebmaj7    F        G
Sail on, sail on, sailor

Verse 3:

I work the seaways, the gale-swept seaways
Past shipwrecked daughters of wicked waters
Uninspired, drenched and tired
Sail on, wail on, sailor

Bridge 2:

Always needing, even bleeding
Never feeding all my feelings
Damn the thunder, must I blunder
There's no wonder all I'm under
Stop the crying and the lying
And the sighing and my dying
Sail on, sail on sailor

Coda (repeat to fade):

Ebmaj7    F        G
Sail on, sail on, sailor
