Old Admirals
Al Stewart
Intro - D 

Verse 1
      G               D            C
I can well recall the first time I ever put to sea
    G             D        F              A
Was on the old Calcutta in eighteen fifty-three
      G             D                C             A
I was just a lad of fourteen years a midshipman to be
   D              Am
To make my way in sailing ships
       G          D A Bm A G D
Of the royal navy

Verse 2
       G               D                C
By the time that I was twenty-one I had sailed the world around
G                       D                   F                A
Weathered storms in the China seas with the hatches battened down
    G              D                 C                A
And made my way by starlight off the coast of Newfoundland
    D                 Am
And dined on beer and herrings 
          G               D A Bm A G D
While the waves blew all around

Bridge 1
I live in retirement now
    E                                    Em
And through my window comes the sound of seagulls
And sets my mind remembering
The evening stars like memories sail far beyond the distant trees
    Em                         Bm
Way out across the open seas I hear them sing

Verse 3
       G                 D                      C
Oh the wooden ships they turned to iron and the iron ships to steel
    G                     D                      F              A
And shed their sails like autumn leaves with the turning of the wheel
    G           D                  C               A
And I was given captain's rank and soon took under me
    D                  Am
The proudest ship that ever sailed
    G                D A Bm A G D
For queen and country

Verse 4
       G             D                    C
Ah the old queen she passed away with the new born century
    G             D       F                A
And I received my calling up to the admiralty
    G                     D              C             A
The sands ran through the hourglass each day more rapidly
      D                   Am
As we watched the growing of the fleets
   G          D A Bm A G D
Of High Germany

Bridge 2
So at last the Great War blazed 

I waited with the passing days
    E                            Em
The call to arms that never came writing letters
  Bm                              E
I may be old now in your eyes but all my years have made me wise
    Em                                 A
You don't see where the danger lies so call me back
Call me back

Verse 5
G              D                          C
But the war it ran it's course they could find no use for me
    G             D                C              A
And I live in the country now grandchildren on my knee
    G                  D                  C                A
And sometimes think in all this world the saddest thing to be
    D            Am         
Old admirals who feel the wind
    G             D A Bm A G D
And never put to sea

Verse 6
    G                  D                     C
Now just like you I've sailed my dreams like ships across the sea
    G                 D                 C              A
And some of them have come on rocks and some faced mutiny
    G                   D               C              A
And when they're sunken one by one I'll join that company
    D            Am
Old admirals who feel the wind
    G             D A Bm A G Bm A A D
And never put to sea
