Jefferson Airplane – Wooden Ships chords
Here is the Airplane's great recording of the Kantner/Stills collaboration. These are the main chords Paul plays. Jorma solos in E minor pentatonic. If anyone wants the solo tab, comment and say so. This is pretty easy, you just have to remember the Cmaj7 in the first verse and the Cmaj7 in the "sail away..." part are different. I put the chord shapes at the bottom. Have fun.G5 Cmaj7 Dm If you smile at me I would understandG5 Because that is somethingCmaj7 Dm G5 Cmaj7 DmEveryone does everywhere in the same languageG5 Cmaj7 Dm I can see by your coat my friend youre from the other sideG5 There's just one thing I've got to knowCmaj7 Dm G5 Cmaj7 Dm G5 Cmaj7 DmCan you tell me please, who won?G5 Cmaj7 You must try some of my purple berriesDm G5I've been eating them for six or seven weeks nowCmaj7 Dm Em A D Haven't got sick once, probably keep us both aliveEm A D E A D F/CEm A DWooden ships on the water, very freeEm A DEasy, you know the way it's supposed to beEm A DSilver people on the shoreline leave us beCmaj7 EmVery free and easyEm Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7Sail away where the morning sun goes highEm Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Sail away where the wind blows sweet and young birds flyEm Cmaj7 D C D Take a sister by her hand, lead her far from this barren landEm A DHorror grips us as we watch you dieEm A DAll we can do is echo your anguished criesEm A DStare as all human feelings dieCmaj7 Em Cmaj7We are leaving you don't need usEm Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 DEm A DGo and take a sister by her handEm A D Lead her from this foreign landEm A D Somewhere where we might laugh againCmaj7 Em Cmaj7We are leaving you don't need usEm Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 Em Cmaj7 DEm A DSailing ships on the water very freeEm A DEasy you know the way it's supposed to beEm A DSilver people on the shoreline leave us beCmaj7 Em Cmaj7 DVery free and goneEm A DNo no no no, no no, no no noEm A DNo no no no, no no, no no noEm A DNo no no no, no no, no no noEm D Come ride the musicEm D Come ride the musicCome ride the musicE D Go ride the musicE D Go ride the musicE D Go ride the musicE D Go ride the musicE D E D E D E D G5 x-10-12-12-x-x Cmaj7 x-x-10-12-12-x Dm x-x-x-10-10-10 Em 0-2-2-x-x-x A x-0-2-2-2-x D x-x-0-2-3-2 F/C x-3-3-2-1-1 Em 0-2-2-x-x-x Cmaj7 3-3-2-x-x-x C x-3-2-0-1-x D x-x-0-2-3-2
