       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.
