          E                              C#m, 
Sweet Annabelle, is seen reclining on an ocean swell, 
                F#m
As the waves do lather up to lay her down
           A
Till she's fast and sleeping

Oh well, I guess I'm something of a ne'er do well
Who fell asleep at the pealing of the steeple bell
I'm on task and keeping

    E                           F#m        
But oh, if I could only get you oceanside, 
            A                           E   Esus4 E
To lay your muscles wide, it'd be heavenly
E                            F#m                       A    
Oh, if I could only coax you overboard, to leave these lolling shores, 
           E         B5 B5      F#m        A     Am  E
To get you oceanside,      oceanside, oceanside

    E                 C#m                 F#m                  A       Am        E

At rising tide, you're looking fresher than a July bride
We're picking up what our mothers always stigmatized
The field is right for reaping

Oh well, I guess I'm something of a ne'er do well 
Even though that's something I could never do well
I'm on track and keeping

But oh, if I could only get you oceanside, 
To lay your muscles wide, it'd be heavenly
Oh, if I could only coax you overboard, to leave these lolling shores, 
To get you oceanside, oceanside, oceanside
