Mark Knopfler
Trawlerman's Song Revisited


Key of Cm

Intro: Cm

Verse 1
Cm                    F
we're taking on water diesel and stores
Bb                          C#
laying up awhile before i'm back on board
        Cm                            F             Bb
they're patching her up to go fishing again, (fishing again)
Cm                         F
they're welding her rudder scrubbing her keel
Bb                      C#
scars on her belly need time to heal
          Cm                  D7
in the dock with the trawlermen

i know all the people there's nobody new
soon we'll be leaving with the same old crew
on the green water the tumbling sea
they ain't running like the good old days
time's just slipping down the old slipways
in the dock so dear to me

Cm             F
dark is the night
   Bb         Gm               Bb
I need a guiding light to keep me
          Gm           F
from foundering on the rocks
Cm         F
my only prayer
   Bb       Gm                       Bb
is just to see you there at the end
          F              Bb       Bb7
of my wandering back in the dock

(chord progression: D#  Cm  F   Dm  G#   
 D7  G#7  Gm  Bb)

Verse 2

I could use a layoff getting my strength back
but there's a loan to pay off and a few skipjack
so it's a turnaround back in the southerly wind
pirates coming in to steal our gold
you can count yourself lucky with a profit in the hold
in the dock when we come in
