Tiny Fish For Japan
Tiny Fish for Japan by Stan Rogers. Tabbed by Josh O'Leary. My first tab. Aquired by observing this dude on youtube - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IZNtyQRyQ4E. to him for his great videos. It is supposed to be crosspicked, but I just strum the chords. Anyways, here are the I think the guy is playing. I cant quite figure out the chord I labelled D?. I play it with the D string on the fret, and B and e both on the third. Thats what i think the guy plays, and it sounds good. Standard tuning, no capo. G Am D E Where Patterson Creek's muddy waters run down C G Am D Past the penny arcades, by the harbour downtown, E Am D E All the old Turtlebacks rust in the rain C D G Like they never will leave there again. G Am D E But leave there they will in the hours before dawn, C G Am D Slip out in the darkness without word or song; E Am D E For a few more years yet they will work while they can C D G To catch tiny fish for Japan. D D C G No white fish or trout here, we leave them alone. C G Am D The inspectors raise hell if we take any home. D D C G What kind of fisherman can't eat his catch E Dsus4? D Or call what he's taken his own? G Am D E But the plant works three shifts now. There's plenty of pay. C G Am D We ship seventeen tons of this garbage each day. E Am D E If we want to eat fish, then we'll open a can, C D G And catch tiny fish for Japan. D D C G In the Norfolk Hotel over far too much beer, C G Am D The old guys remember when the water ran clear. D D C G No poisons with names that we can't understand E Dsus4? D And no tiny fish for Japan... G Am D E So the days run together. Each one is the same. C G Am D And it's good that the smelt have no lovelier name. E Am D E It's all just a job now, we'll work while we can, C D G To catch tiny fish for Japan. C D G And we'll catch tiny fish for Japan.
