OCEAN MAN - words and music by Ween
**from the album The Mollusk

Catchy pop ditty thy name is Ocean Man. Thanks to Mike for sending in the
chords to re-affirm it to us. Anybody wanna take a shot at the solo? I
figured it out quickly and I don't think its correct. But, what the hell.
Bill sent in the mandolin part at the bottom. tho' it doesn't quite match.

Ocean Man - by Ween

***Version 1***

E E E
Ocean man, take me by the hand, lead me to the land
B
that you understand
E E E
Ocean man, the voyage to the corner of the globe
B
is a real trip
A A B B
Ocean man, the sequence of a life form braised in the sand,
A B
soaking up the thirst of the land

Ocean man, can you see through the wonder of amazement
at the oberman
Ocean man, the crust is elusive when it casts forth
to the childlike man
Ocean man, the crust of a tan man embibed by the sand
soaking up the thirst of the land

Ocean man...
