Cheers, JK Six Months In A Leaky Boat - Split Enz ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ From 'Time and Tide' and 'Waiata'. Transcribed by John Kean ( VERSE 1: D When I was a young man I wanted to sail 'round the world Bm That's the life for me, living on the sea D Spirit of a sailor circumnavigates the globe Bm Lust of pioneer will acknowledge no fronteir CHORUS 1: A D I remember you by thunderclap in the sky A D Bm Lightning flash tempers flare, Round the Horn if you dare Gmaj7 I just spent six months in a leaky boat D A D Lucky just to keep afloat VERSE 2: Aotearoa, rugged individual Glisten like a pearl at the bottom of the world The tyrany of distance didn't stop the cavalier So why should it stop me? I'll conquer and stay free CHORUS 2: Ah come on all you lads, let's forget and forgive There's a world to explore, tales to tell back on shore I just spent six months in a leaky boat Six months in a leaky boat SOLO: (Circus bit, then verse chords) CHORUS 3: Shipwrecked love can be cruel, don't be fooled by her kind There's a wind in my sails, will protect and prevail I just spent six months in a leaky boat Nothing to it, leaky boat OUTRO: Dm to fade \\\\ John Kean OO | ~~~~~~~~~ < ) \/ | `--
