I (C) am a (G)sailor and (F) you’re my first (C) mate;
We (Am) signed on (Em) together, (F) coupled our (G)fate;
(Am) up our (Em) anchor, (F) determined not to (C) fail,
For the heart’s (G) treasure (F) together we set (C) sail.
With no maps to guide us we steered our own course;
Weathered the storms when the winds were gale-force;
out the doldrums with patience and hope,
Working together we learned how to cope.
Life (Em) is an (Am) ocean, love (Em) is a boat, (Am)
In (Dm) troubled waters it keeps us (G) afloat.
(F) we started the (G) voyage there (Em) was just me and (Am) you:
Now (F) look around us, we (G) have our own (C) crew.
Together we’re in this relationship;
We built it with care to last the whole trip.
Our true destination’s
not marked on a chart,
We’re navigating for the shores of the heart.
Life is an ocean, love is a boat,
In troubled waters it keeps us afloat.
When we started the voyage there was
just me and you;
Now look around us, we have our own crew.
