THE BOAT THAT I ROW    Lulu
Intro Chords  B E
B                 E                   B   E
Don't have a lot but with me that's fine
B           E                    B    E
Whatever I got well I know it's mine
B             E                    B     E
I don't go around with the local crowd
B                  E                  B   E
I don't dig what's in so I guess I'm out
      E            A            E       B    A D open E
I'm saying these things so you know me baby
     E            A                  B
So you'll under-stand what I'm all about
CHORUS:
                 E          A        B
The boat that I row won't cross no ocean
A                E         A         B
The boat that I row won't get there soon
A                  E              A         B
Well I've got the love if you've got the notion
A                E           A         B 
The boat that I row is big enough for two
    vamp on A E A B....................
1.) You bet you you you 2.) Me and you
n.c.                                   B   E                 
Nobody in my life can tell me what to say
B                 E                      B  E
I choose my own side and I like it that way
B                    E                  B  E
I don't worry about all the things I'm not
B                  E                   B   E
There's only one thing I want I ain't got
      E              A                B    A D open E
You know that I'm thinking about you baby
     E          A                     B
But you better know before you come along
go to chorus,lead
      E            A            E       B    A D open E
I'm saying these things so you know me baby
     E            A                  B
So you'll under-stand what I'm all about

go to chorus, chorus, chorus to fade
