Verse:
C        Am
Coconut Grove 
     F         G
Is a very small cove
     C             Am
Separated from the sea
     F          G
By a shifting shoal
C         Am
We didnt realize that
F        G
We had arrived
C            Am
At high tide, high tide
F              G
Barely made it out alive

Chorus:
C                Am
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh 
F               G
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
C               Am
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
F               G
Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh 

Verse:
C        Am
Red over white 
        F            G
Fishermen working at night
C        Am
Not even once
    F        G
Did we see a light
C         Am
We didnt realize
F                  G
The forecast had been revised 
C            Am
By moonless skies and
F                G                      
Shifty wind that gusts and dies

Bridge:
C          Am               F
Ooh On the sand our keel is heaving
G                           C
But tonight weve got to be leaving
            Am             F         G
Travel through the day and into the evening

Interlude: C  Am  F  G

Chorus:
C   Am       F              G
Marathon how long weve been gone
     C        Am      F      G
And still not yet set foot upon you

Outro:
Am               G
Your low lying shore opens welcomingly 
Am                     G
To one whos spent the night at sea
C             Am          F         G
Adrift in the shallows, a modest repose
C          Am          F             G
Adorn with coral, your bright colors show
C       Am           F            G        C
Ushered in through a Bridge that is never closed    

Am   F   G   C
