Chorus:

Em           [ch]F#/E[/ch]
  Surf Rider!
        C                  D
You are up there riding it,              
             Em
Child of the ocean,
     C                D                   
This great, beautiful mother of life, 
    Em  [ch]F#/E[/ch]
The sea
C              D                   Em
Playing in the water just like the dolphin, 
C               D       Em
You and the sea,  harmony


Verse 1:

C#m            D#7        A           G#7
   Each subtle movement responded to, balanced
             C#m    D#7  A                 G#7
Now you move quickly,    slicing along the tube
A                                    G#7            
  This wave on you is about to break    yet you still slip through.


Chorus:

Em           [ch]F#/E[/ch]
  Surf Rider!
        C                  D
You are up there riding it, 
             Em
Child of the ocean,
     C                D                   
This great, beautiful mother of life, 
    Em  [ch]F#/E[/ch]
The sea
C              D                   Em
Playing in the water just like the dolphin, 
C               D       Em
You and the sea,  harmony


Verse 2:

C#m         D#7  A               G#7               C#m   D#7
   Waves of life move within our bodies and we the riders 
   A                  G#7
Respond to the subtle movements
A                          
 Sometimes we lose control     
B/A
   Shipwrecked on desolate beaches
A
 Waves break above our heads
B/A                          
   For a moment - 
A                       B/A
 Eternity - we know the grace, skill, and control
    A                       A#m7-5              Em   
And move the waves with the smooth gliding of a bird


Bridge: | Em |(x12)  


Solo:   | G | Eb | C | C |(x4)

Outro:
          C                             
Yah! Yah! Yah!  
          Em
Yah! Yah! Yah!  
          C
Yah! Yah! Yah! 
D                   Em
Yah! Yah! Yah! Yah! Yah! Surf Rider!
                                     
          C               
Yah! Yah! Yah!  
          Em
Yah! Yah! Yah - ah! 
C                                                 
Child of the ocean, 
Em
Play like the dolphin,
         C
With the sea in harmony
        A/C#               
You are up there riding it.   
Em           [ch]F#/E[/ch]
  Surf Rider!
