                [Intro]
A

[Verse]
                          D     A
My wings were blue in the ocean green
                           D    A
The prettiest thing you've ever seen
    E7                 A
The gurnet said to the catfish
                      D       A
Rose were my legs and rose my sides
                                D         A
And who would have thought as I roved the tide
          Bm
Where the red crab watched me scuttle and glide
        D                  A
I would come to dance in a net?

[Verse]
                            D         A
The fisherman stands by the water and chuckles
                       D           A
Clams are his ears and limpets his knuckles
    E7                 A
The gurnet said to the catfish
                      D               A
The beard of a mussel droops from his chin
                         D            A
The scales of a mackerel cling to his skin
        Bm
And his eyes roll out and his eyes roll in
      D                       A
As he watches us dance in the net

[Verse]
                     D          A
His eyes are hard as berries of kelp
                              D        A
But sweet is his daughter who comes to help
    E7                 A
The gurnet said to the catfish
                             D          A
They take the ropes in their lean brown hands
                       D            A
And haul us out on the shine of the sands
        Bm
And the girl she laughs as the fisherman stands
    D                       A
And watches us dance in the net

[Bridge]
A  A7  D  D7  G

[Verse]
        C                        F          C
Let her hang up her clothes on a gooseberry bush
                                    F          C
Where the waves say 'crush' and the foam says 'hush'
    G7                 C
The gurnet said to the catfish
                     F            C
The surf is red with struggle and slaughter
                             F         C
But somewhere on earth or in sky or in water
    Dm
The scaly man and his long-legged daughter
     F                  C
Will come to dance in a net

[Instrumental]
C     Dm   G

[Verse]
    C                   F           C
The fishes dance to the fisherman's tune
                      F           C
The waters run to the pull of the moon
        G7                 C
And the gurnet said to the catfish
                            F           C
The air and the sand at the edge of the tide
                          F          C
The fisherman's daughter, dancing in pride
         Dm
With her rosy legs and her rosy side
   F                       C
Is less than a fish in the net

[Bridge]
C  G  Am  A7

[Verse]
    D                     G         D
For somewhere, glaring in wastes of space
                             G     D
There's a terrible eye in an empty face
    A7                 D
The gurnet said to the catfish
                           G             D
And round and round in the spell of that stare
                          G          D
Flashing and slashing and biting the snare
   Em
Go all the glittering shoals of the air
G                        D
Dancing like fish in the net

[Verse]
                    G         D
So somebody sits in space and chuckles
                           G         D
With hair like a comet and stars for knuckles
    A7                 D
The gurnet said to the catfish
                        G        D
And glimmer of side and swirl of fin
                        G          D
His arms are huge as he hauls them in
        Em
And his teeth are sharks in a mile wide grin
      G                         D
As he watches them dance in the net

[Bridge]
D  D7  G

[Verse]
C                   F        C
There I'm going and there go you
                   F         C
I with my wings of butterfly blue
    G7                 C
The gurnet said to the catfish
                         F           C
The moon comes by and he swallows it whole
                           F            C
And there is the girl with wings on her soul
    Dm
And now it's the fisher, and the great eyes roll
      F                         C
As he watches them dance in the net
