[Verse 1]

 A/G A A/G A 
One day as I was sailing on the Caribbean Sea
     G A                 
I spied a little fishing vessel drifting aimlessly
 A/G A A/G A 
Her sails were torn and tattered, and her wheel was spinning free
    G A 
I told myself that little boat sure looks a lot like me

 A/G A 


[Verse 2]

 A/G A A/G A 
As I pulled along beside her and I climbed upon her deck
         G A 
In the silence I could feel the hair a-rising on my neck
    A/G A A/G A 
And I thought as I walked through the empty quarters down below
       G A 
That lost abandoned vessel was the sister of my soul

 A/G A 


[Chorus]

                 D 
'Cause like a ship without a rudder I'm just drifting with the tide
           A G A 
And each day I'm drawing closer to the brink
          D 
Just a speck upon the waters of an ocean deep and wide
         E A 
I won't even make a ripple when I sink

[Verse 3]
 
 B/A B B/A B 
In the emptiness my footsteps were like echoes in a cave
       A B 
That seemed to say there ain't no way to leave this floating grave
      B/A B B/A B 
And when I scrambled to the deck my ship had vanished like a dream
          A B 
Leaving nothing but the lonely waves to hear my silent scream

 B/A A 


[Chorus]
 
                 E 
'Cause like a ship without a rudder I'm just drifting with the tide
           B A B 
And each day I'm drawing closer to the brink
          E 
Just a speck upon the waters of an ocean deep and wide
         F# B 
I won't even make a ripple when I sink

 B/A A  x3
