[CAPO ON 3RD FRET]

[PLAY INSTRUMENTAL INTRO]

      C
All I wanted was a ship
                        G
to sail half around the world

So I could see from over there
                          C
what it's like to be over here

       C
We set sail on a ship
                          G
made from a tall mountain tree

Just like all of us on board
                      C       C7
it had never seen the sea


[CHORUS START]
              F
And soon I realized
                    C
the world is always round
                      G
No matter how far you go
                        C       C7
there is always more to see

                  F
And much to my surprise
                  C
the world is also flat
                      G
No matter how far you go
                        C
You are always the same one

[CHORUS END]

      C
All I wanted was a boat
                         G
to bring me to the other side

So I could see with my own eyes
                            C
if I'd been told a bunch of lies

         C
I took a crew of disbelievers
                              G
that had some doubts of their own
          N.C.
They said "Take us to the edge,
                      C        C7
then take us all back home!"


[SING CHORUS]


[PLAY AGAIN THE INSTRUMENTAL INTRO]


      C
All I wanted was a ship
                         G
to sail across the seven seas
             G
To come back home I don't know when
                        C
and see the old as new again
