                [Intro]
Am

[Verse]
                     Dm
Ocean Station Bravo, North Atlantic Ocean
                   Am                            D     Am
Somewhere south of Greenland, somewhere far from home
                      Dm
Nothing on the radar, nothing on the sonar
            Am               D          Am
Hove to and drifting on this ocean all alone

[Verse]
                        Dm
She was the CGC Sebago, Ocean Station Vessel
               Am              D  Am
High Endurance Cutter, Number 42
                      Dm
Studying the weather, aids to navigation
                   Am          D                 Am
Plotting ships and aircraft as they come sailing through

[Verse]
                             Dm
Just a speck upon the ocean, centre of a circle
              Am                      D
Nothing but horizon, wind and sea and sky
Am                          Dm
This whole world in motion, blowing from the Northwest
              Am                 D                  Am
Not a hint of sunshine, just the grey waves rolling by

[Verse]
                                 Dm
Lookout calls the bridge-watch: "Objects in the water
               Am                         D     Am
Moving Surface Contact, off the starboard bow"
                       Dm
Plot 'em on the radar, fire up the sonar
               Am          G                   Am
Listen for the echoes, Oh, can't you hear them now?

[Verse]
                                      Dm
And there's echoes in the headphones, whale-sound from the speakers
                Am                G
Filling all the spaces inside C.I.C.
Am                        Dm
Songs of love and travel, songs of generations
              Am        G           Am
Echoes of the ages in cetacean harmony

[Verse]
    C     G/B    Am     G  F       Em        Dm
But me, I had to answer, I sang, I talked, I whistled
                      Am                    G
Even played the mouth-harp through the microphone
Em                Am    G     F          Em         Dm
They returned the favour with chirps and clicks and whistles
             Am             G                  Am   Dm7  Am
Songs of celebration not so different from our own

[Verse]
                             Dm
And when the watch was over, out onto the bridge wing
                           Am                                   G     Am
You can see those sounding singers as they breach and sport and play
                         Dm
Just a pod of humpbacks, farewell flukes a-waving
                   Am                            Em E7
But a memory worth saving as we travelled on our way
                     Am            G            Am
For we'd had a conversation with Leviathan that day

[Verse]
                     Dm
Ocean Station Bravo, North Atlantic Ocean
                   Am                            D     Am
Somewhere south of Greenland, somewhere far from home
                      Dm
Nothing on the radar, nothing on the sonar
            Am
Hove to and drifting
