 [VERSE 1:]
 [C]If I had a [G]dollar, [F]if I had a [C]cent
 I would play most [G]anywhere, if [F]it would pay my [G]rent
 I'd be [F]living on the [G]downside in [F]my old apart[G]ment
 For the [C]rest [F]of my [G]days[Em]
 People always ask why the [F]world is on the run
 [Em]People like you and like [F]me [Em]
 
 [VERSE 2:]
 Is it really true, you can [F]really never win
 [G]Moving to the upside, tell me [Am]when does the [G]fun be[F]gin
 [C]Deep as the sea and as wild as the weather
 We will [F]go, just you and [C]me, to pick wild [F]strawberries to[G]gether
 Or be [C]living on our own, in a cabin in a meadow
 Or me[F]andering alone, we can face the world for[G]ever or we'll
 
 [CHORUS:]
 C ~ F G C
 Hit the bounding main, or be on a railroad train
 ~ F G C
 Hit the boundless tide, or be on a steamboat ride
 ~ F G C
 Hit the bounding main, or be on a midnight plane
 ~ F G C Em
 Hit the pounding tide, or be on a rainbow ride
 
 [VERSE 3:]
 People often ask me just the [F]way it must feel [G]
 To be standing up here with you down [F]there [Em]
 Let it now be known that throughout [F]all of these years
 [G]I have been wearing[Am] polka dot [G]underwear[F][C]
 
 [VERSE 4:]
 
 Deep as the sea and as wild as the weather
 We will [F]go, just wait and [C]see, to gather [F]crab-apples to[G]gether
 And be [C]wandering along toward a cabin in the meadow
 Or [F]meandering alone, we can face the world to[G]gether or we'll
 
 [CHORUS:]
 C ~ F G C
 Hit the bounding main, or be on a railroad train
 ~ F G C
 Hit the boundless tide, or be on a steamboat ride
 ~ F G C
 Hit the bounding main, or be on a midnight plane
 ~ F G C Em
 Hit the pounding tide, or be on a rainbow ride

 [VERSE 5:]
 People always ask why the [F]world is on the slide
 [Em]People like you and like [F]me [Em]
 Is it really true there will be [F]no place left to hide
 [G]Turning to the upside,[Am] when does the [G]fun be[F]gin[C]
 
 [VERSE 6:]
 
 Deep as the sea and as wild as the weather
 We might [F]go, just you and [C]me, to pick wild [F]strawberries to[G]gether
 Or be [C]living on our own, in a cabin in a meadow
 And the [F]cows will come home
 They can face the world for[G]ever and we'll
