Highlighted W/ **) Verse 1 G C Mother, mother ocean, I have heart you call, wanted to sail upon your waters C C/B Am7 G Am7 Bm7 Am7 G C/G G since I was three feet tall. Youve seen it all, youve seen it all. Verse 2 Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam. And in your belly you hold the that few have ever seen. Most of them dreams, most of them dreams. Verse 3 Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred years too late. The cannons dont thunder, theres nothing plunder, Im an over fourty victim of fate; arriving too late, arriving too late. Verse 4 Ive done a bit of smugglin', Ive run my share of grass. I made enough money to buy but i pissed it away so fast. Never ment to last, Never ment to last. Verse 5 I have been drunk now for over two weeks, I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few but Ive got to stop wishin', got to go fishin' down to rock bottom again. Just a few just a few friends. Verse 6 Instrumental Verse 7 I go for younger women, lived with several awhile, although I ran away, theyll be back day, and still I can manage a smile. It just takes awhile, it just takes awile. Verse 8 Mother, mother ocean, after all these years Ive found my occupational hazard being my just not around ** ** G Am Bm7 Am7 G Am Bm7 Am7 G D7 G I feel like Ive drowned, gonna head up town.
