 Cm                 G#
Sandy, sandy, fishnets, fishnets
   G                          G#
Washed up on the shore,
   Cm              G#
What's she catching?
   G                     G#
And will she be sore?
 G                       G#           Cm
Sandy was the prettiest of all,
 G
She talked French,
        G#                        Cm
She came from Montreal.
 G                            G#               Cm
During chores she never had to huff,
 G                   G#              Cm
Sandy caught bat all to herself.
G                         G#               Cm
We slept in the trailer to the right,
G                     G#                   Cm
Sandy told us stories late at night.
         G                           G#
She spoke of ships and sailors,
               G                    Cm
And the sea so big and wide,
G                       G#
She had lots of uncles and was
G    G#  G
Always tired.
Cm                   G#
Sandy, sandy, fishnets, fishnets,
   G                         G#
Washed up on the shore,
 Cm             G#
What's she catching?
G                       G#
And will she be sore?
G                             G#                 Cm
How they loved her in those early days,
 G                 G#            Cm
Mrs. Bolger let her go away,
G                     G#                    Cm
All the uncles drove her up to play,
G                             G#                   Cm
We would see them kissing on the lake.
 G                            G#                   Cm
Time went by and Sandy's all grown up,
 G                            G#                      Cm                     G
The lines of uncles dwindled and the pirates stories stopped,
 G                       G#                       Cm
Then one day Melissa May showed up,
G                         G#                       Cm
And Sandy had to share a bed with us.
  Cm                 G#
Sandy, sandy, fishnets, fishnets,
 G                           G#
Washed up on the shore,
Cm                  G#
What's she catching?
  G               C  Cm   G            G#
And will be soaring over the sea?
        C                Cm            G                G#
The wind in her sails and a knife in her teeth,
              Cm                            Eb                      Bb
And the helm of a ship on it's way to a distant shore.
        Cm                             Eb
The muted twilight and an uncharted island,
   G#                              Cm
Sandy we're all getting older,
 G#
What will they do with us
Cm
When they are through with us?
Eb         G                           Cm
Sandy, what are we sailing for?
 G                            G#  Cm
Christmas morning, 1993,
 G                        G#                    Cm
Presents waiting underneath the tree,
G                         G#                  Cm
There's a box for me, a box for me,
      G                         G#              Cm
No gift for poor old Sandy to be seen.
G                         G#         Cm
We found Sandy sobbing quietly,
G                   G#                 Cm
Uncle Gerald said he liked Christine,
G                   G#                      Cm
Mrs. Bolger said she'd have to leave,
G                         G#
Three days later she was gone,
        C                     Cm
The day she turned 13.
