Wooden Ships
(David Crosby/Stephen Stills/Paul Kantner)

  D  A   G         Em

Em                        Am
If you smile at me I will understand
                         Em
'Cause that is something everybody everywhere does
       Am
In the same language
      Em                                         Am
I can see by your coat my friend you're from the other side
                 Em
There's just one thing I've got to know,
                Am      Em        Am
Can you tell me please, who won
          Em
Say can I have some of your purple berries
               Am              Em
Yes, I've been eating them for six or seven weeks now,
Am
Haven't got sick once
                 Em           Am
Probably keep us both alive

D  A  G

Em                        D A  D
Wooden ships on the water very free and easy
Em                       D     A  D
You know the way it's supposed to be
Em                              D   A  D
Silver people on the shoreline, let us be
              C             Em
Talking about very free and easy

Jam over Em > Am

D

Em                    D     A   D
Horror grips us as we watch you die
Em                         D A       D
All we can do is echo your anguished cries
Em                 D  A     D
Stare as all human feelings die
       C                  Em
We are leaving, you don't need us

Jam over Em > Am

D

Em                      D  A   D
Go take a sister, then, by the hand
Em                      D  A    D
Lead her away from this foreign land
Em                       D     A D
Far away, where we might laugh a-gain
       C                  Em
We are leaving, you don't need us

           Em        Am
And it's a fair wind blowing
                Em                       Am
Warm out of the south over my shoulder
           Em                    Am
Guess I'll set a course and go
