Intro:  Dm / C : G


Dm           C       Bb        F
 Two in the morning bright uptown
Dm              C                 Bb - F
 The river run away in the night
Dm           C             Bb        F
 Little Gypsy mare she's all tied down
Dm               C                      Bb - F
 She put her in the wind and the light


(Same chords as above)

 Yeah, the sailing ship is just held down in chains
 From the lazy days of sailing
 She's just lying there silent in pain
 You lean on the tourist rail

Am                              Dm              Dm-C-Bb
 A mother and her baby in the college of war
                   C
 In the concrete grave
Dm                  C                 Bb         F
 You never want to fight against the river law
Gm                  Bb
 Nobody rules the waves

              C             A7           Dm
 Yeah, on a night when the lazy wind is wailing
Bb                   C
 Around the cutting saw
   Dm            C     Bb      F
 Single-handed sailor go sailing
Gm                          Bb
 Singing away in the dark

 He's up on the bridge on the self-say night
 A mariner of dried-up land
 Two in the morning, well there's one green light
 And the man on the barge is sad

 She's gonna step away below him
 Away from things he's done
 But he just shouts, "Hey man whatcha call this thing?"
 She could say, "Pride of London"

 On a night when the lazy wind is wailing
 Around the cutting saw
 Yeah, single-handed sailor go sailing
 Singing away in the dark

For the intro: I tried to play the long note as a slide note. I have to say
that it sounds much better.

Tab notation followed:-----------------
10^12   : slide from 10th to 12th fret
10^(12) : bending (one tone) on 10th fret
(12)^10 : descending bend note on 10th fret
10vv    : vibrato note
10>12   : hammer on
12<10   : pull off

        I'm not sure about this ending...I have not found my CD
        Communique at home. This transcription may be not totally

Dm      C                  Bb           F
       Two in the morning dry-dock town
Dm                 C              Bb - F
The river rolled away in the night
Dm                  C             Bb      F
Little _Gypsy Moth_ she's all tied down
Dm                  C             Bb - F
She put her in the wind and the light


Yeah, the sailing ship is just a-held down in chains
She's just lying there, silent pain
You lean on the tourist rail

A mother and her baby and the College of war
                     C

Sailing away in the dark

Guitar:  Dm / C : G

He's up on the bridge on the self-same night
A mariner of dry-dock land
Two in the morning, well there's one green light
And the man on the barge is sayin'

'She's a-gonna slip away below him
Away from things he's done'
But he just shouts, 'Hey man whatcha call this thing?'
Could say, 'Pride of London'

On a night when the lazy wind is wailing
Around the _Cutty Sark_
Yeah, single-handed sailor go sailing
Sailing away in the dark
