[Intro]
Am

[Verse]
DmOcean Station Bravo, North Atlantic Ocean
Am D AmSomewhere south of Greenland, somewhere far from home
DmNothing on the radar, nothing on the sonar
Am D AmHove to and drifting on this ocean all alone
[Verse]
DmShe was the CGC Sebago, Ocean Station Vessel
Am D AmHigh Endurance Cutter, Number 42
DmStudying the weather, aids to navigation
Am D AmPlotting ships and aircraft as they come sailing through
[Verse]
DmJust a speck upon the ocean, centre of a circle
Am DNothing but horizon, wind and sea and sky
Am DmThis whole world in motion, blowing from the Northwest
Am D AmNot a hint of sunshine, just the grey waves rolling by
[Verse]
DmLookout calls the bridge-watch: "Objects in the water
Am D AmMoving Surface Contact, off the starboard bow"
DmPlot 'em on the radar, fire up the sonar
Am G AmListen for the echoes, Oh, can't you hear them now?
[Verse]
DmAnd there's echoes in the headphones, whale-sound from the speakers
Am GFilling all the spaces inside C.I.C.
Am DmSongs of love and travel, songs of generations
Am G AmEchoes of the ages in cetacean harmony
[Verse]
C G/B Am G F Em DmBut me, I had to answer, I sang, I talked, I whistled
Am GEven played the mouth-harp through the microphone
Em Am G F Em DmThey returned the favour with chirps and clicks and whistles
Am G Am Dm7 AmSongs of celebration not so different from our own
[Verse]
DmAnd when the watch was over, out onto the bridge wing
Am G AmYou can see those sounding singers as they breach and sport and play
DmJust a pod of humpbacks, farewell flukes a-waving
Am Em E7But a memory worth saving as we travelled on our way
Am G AmFor we'd had a conversation with Leviathan that day
[Verse]
DmOcean Station Bravo, North Atlantic Ocean
Am D AmSomewhere south of Greenland, somewhere far from home
DmNothing on the radar, nothing on the sonar
AmHove to and drifting
