Eddie Coffey – The Ocean Ranger chords

Chords
Transpose:
[Verse]
D GIn the cold Canadian waters where there's danger,
D AOn the fifteenth day in a February gale,
D GWhen the chilly waters claimed the Ocean Ranger,
D A DNot one human ever lived to tell the tale.
[Chorus]
GFor three long weeks on the Ocean minds,
DWas the children made them valentines,
AAs they waited for their fathers
DTo return home from the cold.
GLeft their wives, their sons and daughters,
DWith their mothers and their fathers,
AIn the cold Canadian waters;
G DLord have mercy on their souls.
[Verse]
D GFrom time to tide you understand a mother's feelings,
D AOr the feeling of a father for his son;
D GBut those little children's hearts they must be bleeding,
D A DWhen they're old enough to know their father's gone.
[Chorus]
GFor three long weeks on the Ocean minds,
DWas the children made them valentines,
AAs they waited for their fathers
DTo return home from the cold.
GLeft their wives, their sons and daughters,
DWith their mothers and their fathers,
AIn the cold Canadian waters;
G DLord have mercy on their souls.
[Verse]
D GHeaven knows that on the battlefield there's danger,
D AAnd there's danger for the men down in the mine;
D GThere was danger all around the Ocean Ranger,
D A DAnd for those men who left their loved ones all behind.
[Chorus]
GFor three long weeks on the Ocean minds,
DWas the children made them valentines,
AAs they waited for their fathers
DTo return home from the cold.
GLeft their wives, their sons and daughters,
DWith their mothers and their fathers,
AIn the cold Canadian waters;
G DLord have mercy on their souls.
Lord have mercy on their souls
