-Verse-

Bb            Bb*       G
Watching the ships roll in
D                     Bb     Bb*      G
hoping that I will still be his friend
        D
in the morning

Bb            Bb*       G
watching those ships roll by
D                     Bb    Bb*    G
wishing that I could move this earth
     A
if I could
          Bb
for you I would do

-Chorus-

          Bb     Bb*  G
I've got nothing to say
         G       A  Bb    
I've got nothing to lay at your feet

I just keep hoping
           G              A                   D
hope that you will be the man that I couldn't be

-Verse-

Bb                Bb*      G
Still watching the oceans move
D               Bb        Bb* G
if only I could show you my soul
                 D
and places I've been

-Verse-

Bb            Bb*       G
watching the ocean come 
D                 Bb    Bb*      G       A
and little girls playing in the sand as I walk
                     Bb
longing to listen to you talk

-Chorus-

         Bb     Bb*  G
I've got nothing to say
         G       A  Bb    
I've got nothing to lay at your feet

I just keep hoping
           G              A                   D
hope that you will be the man that I couldn't be

-Chorus-

         Bb     Bb*  G
I've got nothing to say
         G       A  Bb    
I've got nothing to lay at your feet

I just keep hoping
           G              A                 333*  D
hope that you will be the man that I couldn't be
