G Am D Em7 Where Patterson Creek's muddy waters run down Cadd9 G Am D Past the penny arcades, by the harbour downtown, Em7 Am D Em7 All the old Turtlebacks rust in the rain Cadd9 D G Like they never will leave there again. G Am D Em7 But leave there they will in the hours before dawn, Cadd9 G Am D Slip out in the darkness without word or song; Em7 Am D Em7 For a few more years yet they will work while they can Cadd9 D G To catch tiny fish for Japan. D D Cadd9 G No white fish or trout here, we leave them alone. Cadd9 G Am D The inspectors raise hell if we take any home. D D Cadd9 G What kind of fisherman can't eat his catch Em7 D4 D Or call what he's taken his own? G Am D Em7 But the plant works three shifts now. There's plenty of pay. Cadd9 G Am D We ship seventeen tons of this garbage each day. Em7 Am D Em7 If we want to eat fish, then we'll open a can, Cadd9 D G And catch tiny fish for Japan. D D Cadd9 G In the Norfolk Hotel there's far too much beer, Cadd9 G Am D The old guys remember when the water ran clear. D D Cadd9 G No poisons with names that we can't understand Em7 D4 D And no tiny fish for Japan... G Am D Em7 So the days run together. Each one is the same. Cadd9 G Am D And it's good that the smelt have no lovelier name. Em7 Am D Em7 It's all just a job now, we'll work while we can, Cadd9 D G To catch tiny fish for Japan. Cadd9 D G And we'll catch tiny fish for Japan.
