If I Had A Boat Ukulele 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
