INTRO:

(D)The skies over (G)Cuba(D), turned (A)pink with the (D)light

And the waterfront (Bm)ritual, began to (A)ignite.

All the ships in the (G)harbour(D), were (A)warmed by the (D)sun

Twenty fifth of (Bm)November, (A)Nineteen Twenty-(D)one. (G) (D)


On the old Chicka(G)mouga(D), the (A)signal jacks (D)flew

And the message they (Bm)spelled out, caused a great bally(A)hoo

Every ship in (G)Havana(D), then (A)hoisted (D)away

All the pennants were (Bm)flyin', (A)on my Dad's first (D)birthday


CHORUS:

(A)Enduring echoes call (D)out from his past,

(A)Time ain't for savin', no (D)time's not for that.

(Bm)Chasin' false (F#m)echoes like A (G)lost legionnaire(A),

He (G)waltzes on (Bm)memories while he (A)fades like (D)flare (G) (D)


Verse 2

Now his storybook (G)childhood(D), was (A)not make (D)believe

On the decks of a (Bm)tall ship, he was taught to (A)achieve.

Witnessed storms and (G)starvation(D), Natural (A)wonders and (D)Force

Oh the life of A (Bm)sailor, (A)steers A wandering (D)course (G) (D)


REPEAT CHORUS:

(A)Enduring echoes call (D)out from his past,

(A)Time ain't for savin', no (D)time's not for that.

(Bm)Chasin' false (F#m)echoes like A (G)lost legionnaire(A),

He (G)waltzes on (Bm)memories while he (A)fades like (D)flare (G) (D)


Verse 3

Well now life throws us (G)curve (D)balls, We (A)never can (D)reach

He gave up the (Bm)ocean, but he lived by the (A)beach.

Where he raised up his (G)family(D), taught (A)us all to (D)survive

Then the wind went (Bm)away in (A)Nineteen Ninety-(D)Five (G) (D)


INSTRUMENTAL:

Verse 4

Now the old Chicka(G)mauga(D), has (A)slipped by the (D)ways

She lies on the (Bm)bottom of old Mobile (A)Bay

Where the ghosts of his (G)father(D) and his (A)brother are (D)near

They protect him and (Bm)tell him, (A)There's nothing to (D)fear (G) (D)

Cause it's family (G)tradition(D), We (A)take to the (D)sea

And it's a time in the (Bm)future, For (A)Cameron and (D)me (G) (D)


REPEAT CHORUS:

(A)Enduring echoes call (D)out from his past,

(A)Time ain't for savin', no (D)time's not for that.

(Bm)Chasin' false (F#m)echoes like A (G)lost legionnaire(A),

He (G)waltzes on (Bm)memories while he (A)fades like (D)flare (G) (D)

Twenty fifth of (Bm)November, (A)Nineteen Twenty-one(D).
