I recently listened to sunset swim with my dad and I thought I would learn the song. I Then realised I couldn’t find the chords to the song anywhere. I had a go at trying to figure it out. I think these are the correct chords. 

Time signature 4/4 

intro A , Amaj7 , A , Amaj7 

Verse 1

A | Amjor7     When I was a younger man 
A | Amaj7       The sun was rising from the sea
D | C#m          Now it’s going back again
C | B                 Taking little bits of me
A | Amaj7        I park my car above the beach
A | Amaj7        walk into the white and green
D | C#m           It’s something I can almost touch
C | B                 It’s nothing that I’ve ever seen

Chorus 1
B | Em             I’m going for a sun (gonna drive out)
G | C              (Sail) for a sunset swim
Em/B | A | C | G | G/F#      I’m going for a sun  (Yeah I think I’ll throw myself right) swim

Verse 2
A | Amaj7.     I’m rolling with all unknown
A | Amaj7      And falling through the backlit ways
D |C#m.        All the damage that’s been done       
C | B.             Dissolving in the ocean spray

Chorus 2
B | Em           I’m going for a sun (gonna drive out)                                                                                                                                      G | C              (Sail) for a sunset swim
Em/B | A | C | G | G/F#        I’m going for a sun (Yeah I think I’ll throw myself right) swim
Em | G | C         I’m going for a sun (Gonna find out where the world begins) sailing
Em/B | A | C | G | G/F#   I’m going for a sun (yeah I think I’ll throw myself right)Swim

Am/E | Am/Eb | Am/D | Am/D
