[Verse 1]
C      G      F              C
I am a Sailor you're my first mate,
   Am        Em          F           G
We signed on together we coupled our fate,
 F            G      F                C
Hauled up our anchors determined not to fail,
 C             G        F               C
For the hearts treasure together we set sail.

[Verse 2]
C               G         F                 C
With no maps to guide us we steered our own course,
 Am          Em              F              G
Rode out the storms when the winds were gale force,
F           G          F            C
Sat out the doldrums in patience and hope,
 C      G          F               C
Working together we learned how to cope.

[Chorus]
Em         Am        Em        Am
Life is an ocean and love is a boat,
Dm                  F          G
In troubled waters it keeps us afloat,
        F          G                 Em          Am
When we started the voyage there was just me and you,
F                        G             C
Now gathered round us, we have our own crew.

[Verse 3]
C        G            F         C
Together we're in this relationship,
  Am             Em      F              G
We built it with care to last the whole trip,
    F         G           F             C
Our true destination's not marked on any charts,
C         G              F             C
We're navigating for the shores of the heart.

[Chorus]
Em         Am        Em        Am
Life is an ocean and love is a boat,
Dm                  F          G
In troubled waters it keeps us afloat,
        F          G                 Em          Am
When we started the voyage there was just me and you,
F                        G             C
Now gathered round us, we have our own crew.
