Sail On

The entire guitar is tuned just a couple cents sharp from D Standard 
(a lot of his earlier recording are like this) and I have a suspicion 
that during his early boombox recordings his main/only guitar was an 
old beater that couldn't hold the strings at full pitch. Or he detuned
it to match his voice (like hendrix).

G
 sail on down the road
        C
 'bout a half a mile or so 
      D
 and i tried to make you stay, 
    G
 but now you're going
G                          C
 it was plain to see that a small town boy like me
     D                               G
 just wasn't your cup of tea that was wishful thinking
C              D           G                 E
 i gave you my heart and i tried to make you happy
C            D            G     E
 you gave me nothing in retu--urn
C                             D               G           E       C
 you know it ain't so hard to say, 'would you please just go awa--ay?'

G
 you come to comfort me 
      C
 but i don't need your sympathy
        D                             G
 and the way you look at me, well it's condescending.
G
 i feel my stomach churn
    C
 and didn't you ever learn 
       D                          G
 not to tell somebody something if you don't mean it
C              D           G                 E
 i gave you my heart and i tried to make you happy
C            D            G     
 you gave me nothing in retuurn
C                             D               G                 C
 you know it ain't so hard to say, 'would you please just go away?'
