[Intro] G C G [Verse]C GI met my mates in the morning, and oh, but I am old!C GWhere roaring on the ledges, the summer ground-swell rolledC G C DI heard them lift the chorus that drowned the breakers' songG C D G GmThe Beaches of Lukannon, two million voices strong[Verse]Dsus2 GmThe song of pleasant stations, beside the salt lagoonsDsus2 GmThe song of blowing squadrons, that shuffled down the dunesDsus2 Eb D7The song of midnight dances, that churned the swell to flameG C D GThe Beaches of Lukannon, before the sealers came![Verse]C GI met my mates in the morning, I'll never meet them more!C GThey came and went in legions that darkened all the shoreC G C DAnd o'er the foam-flecked offing as far as voice could reachG C D G GmWe hailed the landing-parties and sang them up the beach[Verse]Dsus2 GmThe Beaches of Lukannon, the winter-wheat so tallDsus2 GmThe dripping crinkled lichens, and the sea-fog drenching all!Dsus2 Eb D7The platforms of our playground, all shining smooth and worn!G C D G C GThe beaches of Lukannon, the home where we were born![Verse]C GI met my mates in the morning, a broken, scattered bandC GMen shoot us in the water, they club us on the landC G C DMen drive us to the Salt House like silly sheep and tameG C D G GmAnd still we sing Lukannon, before the sealers came[Verse]Dsus2 GmWheel down, wheel down to South'ard, go Gooverooska, go!Dsus2 GmAnd tell the Deep Sea Viceroys the story of our woeDsus2 Eb D7Ere, empty as the sharks-egg the tempest flings ashoreG C D G C GThe Beaches of Lukannon will know their sons no more!
