Josh Ritter – Beautiful Night tab

-Beautiful Night-
-Josh Ritter-

Up here in the crow's nest I am swimming through the breeze
D G Em A7
One last memory from the sun as it is setting by degrees
And high above an albatross is following its light
D G Em A7
And I will sing to her as she flies by
On this beautiful night

Ahead is the horizon, always changing it stands fast
Far behind me are the desert islands shipwrecks of the past
And I have seen the cannons sounding in the early morning light
But I have left my battles for the day
On this beautiful night

Lonely are the sailors they're on this journey too
And each of us must make our unknown way upon the blue
So tonight we cast our worries float jetsam on the tide
And we watch them echo far away
On this beautiful night

The flat earth may end
Em A7 A
We may sail off the edge and not be seen again
F#m C#m
So I sing and hope my song will form a rope of golden cords/chords
Em A7 A
So that I can rescue someone else should they fall overboard

Some of us are pirates and some of us are damned
But all of us need all of us to ever find the land
And though the Passage of Good Hope may seem like a needle's eye
We're floating on tranquility
On this beautiful night

Up here in the crow's nest I am swimming through the breeze
One last memory from the sun...
