Tiger Lillies – Silors chords

  Tiger Lillies - Sailors

Cm And the sailors, they sing sad songs,
FmAbout the sea that eats them whole.
CmAnd the sailors they sing sad songs,
FmFood for fishes shoals.
FmAnd the wind it blows inland,
CmAnd the death you can smell.
FmSmashed on rocks and smashed on boulders,
Cm GSmashed in living hell.
CmAnd their loved ones wait for hours,
FmAwait the fate of the cruel sea
CmAnd if loved ones don't return,
FmThere's no security.
FmJust the work-house when they grow old,
CmTo lay their weary heads,
FmAnd the sound of the sea singing
Cm GUntil they are dead.
CmAnd the sea that bears its harvest
FmIt exacts a heavy toll,
CmMothers, fathers, brothers, uncles,
FmWith no corpses to behold.
FmSailing out into the darkness,
CmEvery day of the year.
FmSailing out into the darkness,
Cm GWith a prayer, and with fear
CmAnd with fear,
GWith a prayer, and with fear.
CmAnd with fear.
