(VERSE)
I sailed a wild, wild sea
climbed up a tall, tall mountain
I met a old, old man
beneath a weeping willow tree
He said now if you got some questions
go and lay them at my feet
but my time here is brief
so you'll have to pick just three
 
(CHORUS PART A)
And I said
What do you do with the pieces of a broken heart
and how can a man like me remain in the light

(CHORUS PART B)
and if life is really as short as they say
then why is the night so long
and then the sun went down
and he sang for me this song
 
(BRIDGE)
See I once was a young fool like you
afraid to do the things
that I knew I had to do
So I played an escapade just like you
I played an escapade just like you
 
....and so on.
 
 
Notes:
 
 o the first chord (which is basically a D/D6) could also be played fretting
   the B string at the 3rd or 5th fret besides leaving it open. ie: 0-5-4-0-3-0 or 0-5-4-0-5-0  
   it can also be played as: 0-0-0-3-3-2

 o you can add a 2nd to the G [5-5-5-5-(5)-(5)] during the chorus by fretting
   the D string at the 7th fret [5-5-7-5-(5)-(5)]
