Shiver Me Timbers       (T.Waits)
Gb             Cb/Db
I'm leaving my family
Gb             Ebm7
leaving all my friends
Gb           Ab7
my body's at home
       Abm9/Gb       Db7
but my hearts in the wind
          Gb              Cb/Db
where the clouds are like headlines
     Gb            Ebm7 
on a new frontpage sky
   Gb             Ab7
my tears are salt water
     Abm9/Gb  Db7  Gb
and the moons full and high

And I know Martin Eden's
gonna be proud of me
many before me
has been drawn by the sea
To be up in the crow's nest 
singing my say
Shiver me Timbers
as I'm sailing away

-----    Ebm7     
/Now the fog's lifting 
 and the sand's shifting
     Gb/Cb       Ab9
 I'm drifting on out

 Old captain Ahab
              Db7sus4   Db7
 he ain't got nothing on me

{repeat chords as above}

 So swallow me , follow me
 I'm travelling alone
 Blue waters my daughter
 I'm gonna skip like a stone

so please call my misses
tell her not to cry
'cause my googbye is written
by the moon in the sky
Nobody knows me
I can't fathom my stayin'
shiver me timbers
as I'm sailing away

/Now the fogs liftin'......


I'm leaving my family
leaving all my friends
my body's at home 
but my hearts in the wind
where the clouds are like headlines
on a new frontpage sky
shiver me timbers
as I'm sailing  goodbye........
