If I Had a Boat
Lyle Lovett
This is my take on the song; a fairly pared-down version without some of
the fancier embellishments. Corrections are welcome!
I wrote this out in 10 pt. Courier, so it might help you to view it the same.
Chords:
string eadGBE
G6 320030
Csus2 x30030
G/B x20030
Em7 002030
Dsus2/F# 200230
Capo 9 (I play capo 7 'cuz I can't sing up where Lyle does)

me upon my pony on my boat
Csus2 G/B G6 Csus2 G/B G6
Now the mystery masked man was smarter, he got himself a Tonto
Csus2 Em7 Dsus2/F#
'Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free
Csus2 G/B G6 Csus2 G/B G6
But Tonto he was smarter, and one day said Kemosabe,
Csus2 Em7 Dsus2/F# G6
"Kiss my ass, I bought a boat, I'm going out to sea"
Chorus
Now if I were Roy Rogers, I'd sure enough be single,
Couldn't bring myself to marryin' no Dale,
Well it'd just be me and Trigger, we'd go riding through them movies,
And we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail.
Chorus
Now if I were like lightning, I wouldn't need no sneakers,
Well I'd come and go whenever I did please,
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree, and I'd scare 'em by the light pole,
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea.
Chorus
