Intro|| G| Em| G| Em|

G
let me off of this boat

I'm sick of this ride

the world is heading ever southward
       Em
and I can't stay in here
    G
and you're lying awake

away on your side

the feeling comes in waves and burns us
    Em
and I don't wanna die
      G
from your slippery hands

to the line of your throat

the fever now consumes us both
      Em
in a fire now we will go
        C(maj7)
Santa Maria
                     Em
why did you have to go
           C(maj7)
Santa Maria
         [stop]
one day we will know
 G
in a bowing of heads and a passing of hands

and all we thought they would understand
   Em
is lost and they won't know
                  G
and what have we left

it's all that we got

there is no x to mark our spot
        Em
what's past is done and gone
          C(maj7)
Santa Maria
                       Em
why did you have to burn
         C(maj7)
Santa Maria
                     G
one day you will learn

G chord for about a minute

Notes: Glen just batters the guitar with the side of hand or pick for most of the song. The C(maj7) can be played as a C or a Cmaj7. I thought it was just a C the first time I played it but the lead guitar plays wee slide up to a B note every time the C chord comes up so it has a feel of a maj7. Hope this helps!!
