[Intro]
Bm D G A D A D

[Verse 1]
Bm DThere’s only sky and water
GAs far as we can see
AYou came in a dream last night
G ADear heart, you spoke to me
Bm DThere’s only sky and water
GAnd never so alone
AWhen we cut the captain loose
DWe cut all ties with home
A DLord, we cut all ties with home
[Verse 2]
Bm DWe let the tyrant drift away
GIn one of his own boats
AI don’t know why I stopped the hands
G AFrom going for his throat
Bm DEvery man did curse the day
GHe signed up for the trip
AAnd every man did know
DThis was no way to run a ship
A DLord, no way to run a ship
[Instrumental 1] Bm D G A G A Bm D G A D A D [Verse 3]
Bm DGood riddance to his bitter soul
GAnd now we have the brig
AIt’s sure we’ll not be sailing home
G ATo dance the hempen jig
Bm DThere’s only sky and water
GWe sleep and dream of land
ABut free of chains of iron
DAnd the captain’s iron hand
A DLord, the captain’s iron hand
[Instrumental 2] Bm D G A G A Bm D G A D A D [Verse 4]
Bm DHe lashed me to a grating
GFor the nine claws of the cat
AAnd now I have a fever
G ABut I give no thought to that
Bm DI am high over the water
GI sleep and dream of land
AFree of chains of iron
DAnd the captain’s iron hand
A DLord, the captain’s iron hand
[Outro] Bm D G A G A Bm D G A D A D
