Gordon Bok – The Beaches Of Lukannon chords

G    C  G

C GI met my mates in the morning, and oh, but I am old!
C GWhere roaring on the ledges, the summer ground-swell rolled
C G C DI heard them lift the chorus that drowned the breakers' song
G C D G GmThe Beaches of Lukannon, two million voices strong
Dsus2 GmThe song of pleasant stations, beside the salt lagoons
Dsus2 GmThe song of blowing squadrons, that shuffled down the dunes
Dsus2 Eb D7The song of midnight dances, that churned the swell to flame
G C D GThe Beaches of Lukannon, before the sealers came!
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 shore
C G C DAnd o'er the foam-flecked offing as far as voice could reach
G C D G GmWe hailed the landing-parties and sang them up the beach
Dsus2 GmThe Beaches of Lukannon, the winter-wheat so tall
Dsus2 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!
C GI met my mates in the morning, a broken, scattered band
C GMen shoot us in the water, they club us on the land
C G C DMen drive us to the Salt House like silly sheep and tame
G C D G GmAnd still we sing Lukannon, before the sealers came
Dsus2 GmWheel down, wheel down to South'ard, go Gooverooska, go!
Dsus2 GmAnd tell the Deep Sea Viceroys the story of our woe
Dsus2 Eb D7Ere, empty as the sharks-egg the tempest flings ashore
G C D G C GThe Beaches of Lukannon will know their sons no more!
