A New Shore
I've wanted to do a Steve Page tab for a while, so here it is. Chorded from a live outdoor performance at Yonge/Dundas Square (Toronto) where I zoomed right in, so should be accurate (use Firefox if the chords don't line up). A great tune off his album, "Page One". Enjoy! http://www.stevenpage.com/ [no capo, open chords, acoustic] G Am As captain of this band of merry sailors I'm a black mark I'm a failure D G So before you watch me drown G I'm relinquishing command for something I don't understand, Am D G this man's about to turn his whole life upside down D G I set a course for a new shore D G It looked the same as the one before Cm G And I forgot what I'd been sailing for D G And why I thought this time would be different G I do most of this by feel and let go of the wheel the constellations Am D G Do the navigation on their own. G Whilst yearning for adventure, dreading censure in absentia Am D G I would rather be at sea than be alone D G I set a course for a new shore D G It looked the same as the one before Cm G And I forgot what I'd been sailing for D G And why I thought this time would be different (G) Off the charts we drew Am D G They said there wasn't anything but fairy tales Am D Em I told them it was you, I told them you were everything a fairy tale could be Am The boat sails by Em Am Bm Oooo-The shore remains and so do I D G I swear this time will be different Instrumental G - Am - D - G (x2) D G I settled here on a new shore D G My lips were blue and my legs were sore Cm G And I forget if I was pushed or I jumped overboard D G And after all this time, what's the difference? Bm7 C A7 Oooo-ooooooh Oooo-aaaahhh Instrumental (palm muted) G - Am - D (x2) G Land Ho! (Laa-and Ho!) Am D Land Ho! Land Ho! (x3) G Land Ho! Laa-and Ho! Am D G Land Ho! Land Ho!
