[Intro]
C   Am Am7  Dm
G   Am Am7  Dm
G   Am Am7  Dm

[Verse]
C Am DmOh, you have to dig oysters when the tide is just right
G Dm GAnd sometimes it comes in the dead of the night
C Am DmThe orders came down to extinguish all lights
F GTo our homes on the Oystershell Road
[Verse]
C Am DmThe glow of a lantern could bring an attack
G Dm GSo, sometimes we'd sleep in the old oyster shack
C Am DmAnd let ourselves down with a rake and a sack
F GNear our homes on the Oystershell Road
[Verse]
C Am DmSome came from Germany, some from Japan
G Dm GThey lived for the oysters, each woman and man
C Am DmWe said, "God go with you, return when you can
F GTo your homes on the Oystershell Road"
[Verse]
C Am DmAnd when push comes to shove, your mettle shines through
G Dm GAnd our hands and our feet somehow knew what to do
C Am DmWith the men gone away, we made such a fine crew
F G Dm GNear our homes on the Oystershell Road
[Verse]
C Am DmIn the sea was the sub, in the air was the plane
G Dm GBut the men had it worse, so we didn't complain
C Am DmAnd the neighbours would honk us all home in the rain
F GTo our homes by the Oystershell Road
[Verse]
C Am DmSo we helped win the war in the mud and the muck
G Dm GAnd we prayed that our feet would never get stuck
C Am DmWhen the tide rushes in, you can run out of luck
F G Dm GNear your home on the Oystershell Road
[Verse]
C Am DmOh, how I remember the dark and the cold
G Dm GAnd I prayed that our story would someday be told
C Am DmBut it probably won't, 'cause we're getting so old
F GNear our homes on the Oystershell Road
