Chords
Transpose:
[Intro]
E  D  E

[Verse]
A D A EI am living dry and placid now, among encircling mountains
D A D A B EAn old man still remembering the days that used to be
D A F#m C#mBut I close my eyes and live again, those days of sweat and laughter
D A E A EWhen we worked the trochus luggers in the western Coral Sea
[Verse]
A D A ESailing in a black hulled lugger with a lookout at the masthead
D A D A B EYou may drift along the coral cays and anchor where you please
D A F#m C#mIn the glassy leeside waters of some rocky offshore island
D A E AThough the outer reef be trembling under pounding whitened seas
[Chorus]
D ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
E ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
D ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
E A ELaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
[Verse]
A D A EYou may anchor calm and safely in the shallows over coral
D A D A B EWhere the waters glimmer peacock in a hundred shifting shades
D A F#m C#mYou can hear the rippling wavelets tinkle gently on the beaches
D A E AAnd the stays and braces thrumming in the southeast trades
[Chorus]
D ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
E ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
D ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
E A ELaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
[Verse]
A D A ETo the north of Lizard Island and to the south of Iron Range
D A D A B EIn my dreams I am returning to the place where I would be
D A F#m C#mTo the laughing Torres Straitsmen singing softly in the twilight
D A E ATo the trochus lugger's anchorage in Princess Charlotte Bay
[Chorus]
D ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
E ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
D ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
E ALaddie oh..., Laddie ay...
