 [INTRO:] Am C G Am C7 F Am
 
 [VERSE 1:]
 Even if you're [C]sure before [G]you begin to [Am]cry
 Never [C7]rest until you [F]find what is [C]best to be for[Em]got
 Let it [F]float off in the [Dm]night be[G]neath the moon
 So [C]brightly shining [Em]down on the [C7]steeples of the [F]town
 
 [CHORUS:]
 You [G]must not be downhearted over [C]things you left undone
 You got [Am]faith, to [Em]tell you all is [Am]well
 And you [Em]know you'd best not [F]stop[Am]
 There's still a ways to [C]go [Am]
 
 [VERSE 2:]
 Even if you're [C]sure, before [G]you begin to [Am]sigh
 Let me [C7]show my way is [F]best, on the [C]wayward side to[Em]night
 Let a [F]planet be your [Dm]guide a[G]bove the fields
 Be[C]side the sleeping [Em]town, when the [C7]work is all shut [F]down
 
 [CHORUS:]
 You [G]will not be outsmarted by that [C]song you left unsung
 You got [Am]faith, to [Em]make your world take [Am]flight
 There is [Em]still a ways to [F]go[Am]
 'Bout a thousand miles or [C]so[Am]
 
 [VERSE 3:]
 Even if you're [C]sure before [G]you begin to [Am]smile
 Let it [C7]happen on its [F]own, like the [C]shellfish in the [Em]sea
 I'm as [F]selfish as can [Dm]be, when [G]it comes down to [C]me
 And all of my [Em]kin, all they [C7]want to do is [F]win
 
 [CHORUS:]
 You [G]will not be deserted by old [C]friends you left alone
 You got [Am]faith to [Em]make you meet the [Am]cost
 And you [Em]know you'd best not [F]wait[Am]
 He who hesitates is [C]lost[Am]
 So even if you're [C]sure
 
 [INSTRUMENTAL:] G Am C7 F C Em F
 
 [OUTRO:]
 It's so [G]easy to be shellfish [G7]in the [C]sea
