D  G  D  (x2)

G D G D A7The fisherman comes up, puts his two poles in the sand
G D G DHe stares out at the sea just exactly like me
A7 G But I've got a book in my hand
Bm G D A7We will have caught on to something by the end of the day
G D A DBut mostly we think about the one that got away
I've seen like a bird what pleasures the surface can bring I've lost my best craft going foolishly back to where to the sirens sing I've stared up at the place where the water meets the sky And though I stopped breathing I still believe I should try Maybe a boat in search of lost treasures will pass by
A G 'Cause the fleet of hope is so pretty
D A Gwhen she's shining in the port
A G And the harbor clings to the jetty
D A Cfor protection and support
G A G A7 Out in the choppy waters the sharks swim and play
G D A DYou're all washed up when Poseidon has his day
I've walked through the desert climbed over mountains so high Through jungles and plains I took buses and trains And airplanes across the sky But none as seductive as ocean before me alone And now I know why you layered your pockets with stones 'Cause the fleet of hope is so pretty when she's shining in the port And the harbor clings to the jetty for protection and support Out in the choppy waters the sharks swim and play You're all washed up when Poseidon has his day When I was a girl all of my fancy took flight And I had this dream could outshine anything even the darkest night Now I wait like a widow for someone to come back from sea I've always known I was waiting for me 'Cause the fleet of hope is so pretty when she's shining in the port And the harbor clings to the jetty for protection and support Out in the choppy waters the sharks swim and play You're all washed up when Poseidon has his day Read more: INDIGO GIRLS - FLEET OF HOPE LYRICS
