[verse 1]
C         G
My name’s Sebastian
C            G
I killed the captain
C       G                 C               G
Just a guy that likes to keep the ghetto blastin’
C    G C          G
In 1690 I blew up Weimar
C    G           C             G
Dedicating everything I did to Beauty
F
But Truth and Beauty
G
Are not the same thing
A                      B
The Grecian Urn filled up with camel dung
F                    G 
I got a sharp tongue
                 A    B
Better warn the Pope


[chorus 1]
        C                F
All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
          G                    C      G
With the wind ever blowing my sail
       C                 F
All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
          G                    C     G     C
With the wind ever blowing my sail
G          C     G     C     G
Blowing my sail


[verse 2]
C          G
I’m like a Buddhist
C     G
Tryna do this
C           G                C                 G
And you can hook me up with God because you’re Jewish
C         G
The Pharisees are
C      G
Tryna thwart me
C         G          C      G
I need a Mary Magdalene to escort me
F
Such a bummer
G
The Last Supper
A                    B                F
Is right around the corner from this place

Get your pants on
G           A      B
Botox your face


[chorus 2]
        C                F
All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
          G                    C      G
With the wind ever blowing my sail
       C                 F
All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
          G                    C     G     C
With the wind ever blowing my sail
G          C     G     C     G
Blowing my sail


[bridge]
A          G
I'll never know
       C     E F
If I'm worth a damn
    G      A
Or just a ham
A                   B
But when I trust a feeling
C              C#
Music comes to me
            D
And I feel free
           D#               E
And that's all I needed to know

All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
          G                    C      G
With the wind ever blowing my sail
        C                F
All I wanted to be was a boat on the sea
          G                    C      G
With the wind ever blowing my sail
       C                 F

With the wind ever blowing my sail
G          C     G     C     G
Blowing my sail
