D                                             G
Mother, mother ocean, I have heart you call, wanted to sail upon your waters

since I was three feet tall. Youve seen it all, youve seen it all.

-same chord progression through out the other Verses-

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.

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.

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.

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.


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.

Mother, mother ocean, after all these years Ive found my occupational hazard being my 
just not around
D                    Em   Gbm7      Em7      D    Em Gbm7 Em7 D A7 D
   I feel like Ive drowned, gonna head up town.
