I didn't find this in the database. I think I got the HTML formatting OK.
 If I Had A Boat	- Lyle Lovett
(Key = C, Play in G position with Capo on 5th Fret)

Chorus:
Cmaj9 Em7 G6
If I had a boat
Cmaj9 Em7 G6
I'd go out on the ocean
Cmaj9 G6
And if I had a pony
Em D/F# Dsus4 D/F#
I'd ride him on my boat
Cmaj9 Em7 G6
And we would all together
Cmaj9 Em7 G6
Go out on the ocean
Cmaj9 D/F# G6
Me upon my pony on my boat


C G
If I were Roy Rogers
C G
I'd sure enough be single
C G D/F#
I couldn't bring myself to marry no Dale
C G
It'd just be me and Trigger
C G
We'd go riding through them movies
C D/F# G
We'd buy a boat and on the sea we'd sail

(Chorus)

That mystery, masked man was smart
He had himself a Tonto
Tonto did the dirty work for free
But Tonto, he was smarter
One day said, "Kemo Sabe,"
"Kiss my ass I bought a boat, I'm going out to sea"

(Chorus)

And if I were like lightning
I wouldn't wear no sneakers
I'd come and go whenever I would please
And I'd scare 'em by the light pole
And I'd scare 'em by the shade tree
But I would not scare my pony on my boat out on the sea

(Chorus)

Chords:
EADGBe
Cmaj9 x32030
Em7 x20030
G6 320030
D/F# 200232
