"The Ship Song" by Concrete Blonde -a Nick Cave cover Starts out with a G strummed up and then... G D C G D (SW) Come sail your ships around me and burn your bridges down G D C G D We make a little history baby, everytime you come around G D C G D Come lose your thoughts upon me, and let your hair hang down G D C G D You are a little mystery baby, everytime you call around C G D We talk about it all night long (ALL... NIGHT LONG) C G D And we define our moral ground (OH...YEAH...) Em G C G D (*both) But when I crawl into your arms, everything, it comes tumbling down G D C G D Come sail your ships around me, and burn your bridges down G D C G D We make a little history baby, everytime you come around C G D C G D (JN) Are your faces falling sad now, for you know the time is night Em G C G D Well I must remove your wings, and you, you must try and fly (do the beginning [the chorus] a couple times) *solo* (do the beginning [the chorus} some more and play around with it) (Johnette does some of her cool singing et al.) -scott
