Steven Page - A New Shore chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I've wanted to do a Steven Page Tab for a while, so here it is. Tabbed from a live 
outdoor performance at Yonge/Dundas (Toronto) where I zoomed right in, so should 
be accurate (use Firefox if the chords don't line up). A great tune off his album 
"Page One". Enjoy!

G                                                               Am
As captain of this band of merry sailors I'm a black mark I'm a failure
     D                 G
So before you watch me drown
      G
I'm relinquishing command for something I don't understand,
            Am               D                 G
this man's about to turn his whole life upside down 

D                    G
I set a course for a new shore
D                         G
It looked the same as the one before
    Cm                     G
And I forgot what I'd been sailing for
    D                                          G
And why I thought this time would be different

G
I do most of this by feel and let go of the wheel the constellations
Am         D               G
Do the navigation on their own.
       G
Whilst yearning for adventure, dreading censure in absentia
        Am           D            G
I would rather be at sea than be alone

D                    G
I set a course for a new shore
D                         G
It looked the same as the one before
    Cm                     G
And I forgot what I'd been sailing for
    D                                          G
And why I thought this time would be different

(G)
Off the charts we drew
                       Am           D           G
They said there wasn't anything but fairy tales
                                             Am           D                Em
I told them it was you, I told them you were everything a fairy tale could be
               Am
The boat sails by
Em               Am              Bm
Oooo-The shore remains and so do I
             D                    G
I swear this time will be different


Instrumental G - Am - D - G (x2)


D                   G         
I settled here on a new shore
D                        G
My lips were blue and my legs were sore
    Cm                                   G
And I forget if I was pushed or I jumped overboard
    D                                           G
And after all this time, what's the difference?

     Bm7     C    A7
Oooo-ooooooh Oooo-aaaahhh


Instrumental (palm muted) G - Am - D (x2)


G
Land Ho! (Laa-and Ho!)
Am       D
Land Ho! Land Ho! 
(x3)

G
Land Ho! Laa-and Ho!
Am       D       G
Land Ho! Land Ho!
