Verse 1 (sorry I can't be arsed to tab out the piano anymore): C Em7 Am G* F G I'm sailing away, set an open course for the virgin sea. Cause C Em7 Am G* F G I've got to be free, free to face the life that's ahead of me Am G On board I'm the captain, so climb aboard Am G We'll search for tomorrow on every shore, and I'll C Em7 Am G* F G Intro try, oh Lord, I'll try to carry on Verse 2: C Em7 Am G* F G I look to the sea reflections in the waves spark my memories C Em7 Am G* F G Some happy, some sad I think of childhood friends, and the dreams we had Am G We lived happily forever, so the story goes Am G But somehow we missed out on the pot of gold, but we'll C Em7 Am G* F try, blessed that we can...

I'm not going to tab out those keyboards but if you want to just improvise, I think that final note before it goes back into the bridge again is an E (12th fret e string or 17th fret B string, or bend the 15 up to 17 while you hit the 12). Play the bridge and chorus with the tapping in the background and fade out. Here's part of the outro solo:
