Capo 4

 

/ C - - - / - - - - / F – C/E - / C - - - /

/ C - - - / G - - - / C - - - / - - - - /

 

Chorus:

F     C/E     C

If I had a boat

     F        C/E      C
I'd go out on the ocean

      F     C/E    C
And if I had a pony

     Am                   G
I'd ride him on my boat

       F           C/E    C
And we could all together

 F        C/E      C
Go out on the ocean

C                  G                C
Me upon my pony on my boat

 

C
If I were Roy Rogers

     F         C/E        C
I'd sure enough be single

                  C                                      G
I couldn't bring myself to marrying old Dale

       C
It'd just be me and Trigger

              F          C/E              C
We'd go riding through them movies

                  C                   G                      C
Then we'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail

Chorus

 

 

        C
The mystery masked man was smart

      F          C/E   C
He got himself a Tonto

            C                                       G
'Cause Tonto did the dirty work for free

       C
But Tonto he was smarter

              F           C/E    C
And one day said Kemo Sabe

 C                                              G                 C
Kiss my ass I bought a boat, I'm going out to sea

Chorus

         C
And if I were like lightning

    F            C/E        C
I wouldn't need no sneakers

      C                                         G
I'd come and go wherever I would please

               C
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree

               F         C/E      C
And I'd scare 'em by the light pole

          C                                            G                      C
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

Chorus (repeat last line)
