Send a Boat
by Chris Knight

Written by: Knight

Capo 3rd fret
~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^~^
Em  C  G G/f#  Em  D  G

G                      C
Pictures on the wall, bottle in her hand,
D                         C              G
Children never call, she misses her old man.
G                     C
Rain on the window, quite as a tear
D                           C                  G   G/f#
And if you never felt 'em, never know they're here.

    Em        C            G   G/f#
- Someone's cryin' in the hall.
 Em    C            D
Good Lord, help us all
 Em       C             G  C
While we try to stay afloat.
        Em           D      G
If you would, Lord, send a boat. -

G                    C
Holes in the wall, bottle by his bed.
D                   C            G
Holes in his past, empty as his head.
G                             C
He's younger when he dreams, he's older than his years
D                          C                   G  G/f#
And if he never wakes up, he'll know why he's here.

    Em        C            G   G/f#
- Someone's cryin' in the hall.
 Em    C            D
Good Lord, help us all
 Em       C             G  C
While we try to stay afloat.
        Em           D      G
If you would, Lord, send a boat. -

G    G/f# Em  C  G G/f#  Em  C  D  Em  C  G  C  Em  D  G

G                                     C
The writing's on the wall, there's a bruise on his face.
D                     C            G
Daddy's come and go, momma's on a date.
G                           C
He's just cold and hungry, playin' ain't no fun
D                         C               G  G/f#
And if he ever grows up, he'll get him a gun.

    Em        C            G   G/f#
- Someone's cryin' in the hall.
 Em    C            D
Good Lord, help us all
 Em       C             G  C
While we try to stay afloat.
        Em           D      G  C
If you would, Lord, send a boat.
        Em           D      G
If you would, Lord, send a boat.
