Chords
Transpose:
[Intro]
G  D7    G

[Verse]
D7 G G7You're a dirty, hungry, scaly bag of timbers
C DAnd you've seen the last of your deep water days
D7I have, too
C GBut I'd like to cut us free, and we'd go astray together
Am C D7And we'd try that last long voyage
G D7 GMe and you
[Verse]
D7 GYoung men aren't worth the trouble anymore
AmThey'd have you think a man that liked his home
DWas nothing but a fool
C GAnd they dress up and they go and leave the only thing they ever had
Am C D7And if I ever could believe that it was worth it
GI'd go too
[Verse]
D7 GBut I'd just as soon be here as someplace there
Am DI don't need many things
D7 G G7Little coffee, little rum
C GI can lie here in the cove with those little stars above me
Am C D7 GHear that wind running easy down the bay
[Bridge]
C GGo away, go away
D C GThey tell me that it's time to go away
[Verse]
D7 G G7But you're a dirty, hungry, scaly bag of timbers
C DAnd you've seen the last of your deep water days
D7I have, too
C GBut by god, I'd like to cut us free, and we'd go astray together
Am C D7And we'd try that last long voyage
GMe and you
[Verse]
D7 GBut there's snow on my shoes and on my head
Am G G7And there's snow on that hungry northern wind
C GAnd you take a look around you, all your rambling friends are dead
Am C D7And I guess it won't be long before the day comes
G D7 GWe go, too
