X X 12 X 12 X,  X X 10 X 10 X,  X X 9 X 8 X  (2X)

Am7(open), Bm7(open), G     X X 12 X 12 X (pentatonic)

G                                             C
Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call, wanted to sail upon your waters
      C          C/B  Am7 G               Am7 Bm7 Am7                  G   C/G  G
since I was three feet tall. You've seen it all,         you've seen it all.
G                                                              C
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam. And in your belly
                            C/B  Am7 G                   Am7 Bm7 Am7
hold the treasures, few have ever seen. Most of them dreams,
                G   C/G  G
most of them dreams.

G                                                    C
Yes, I am a pirate, two hundred years too late. The cannons dont thunder,
                                              C/B  Am7 G
theres nothing to plunder, I’m an over forty victim of fate;
              Am7 Bm7 Am7                  G   C/G  G
arriving too late,          arriving too late.
G                                                          C
Ive done a bit of smugglin', Ive run my share of grass. I made enough money to buy Miami
      C          C/B  Am7 G                  Am7 Bm7 Am7         G   C/G  G
but i p**sed it away so fast. Never ment to last,    Never meant to last.

G
I have been drunk now for over two weeks, I passed out and I rallied and I
                           C
sprung a few leaks but Ive got to stop wishin', got to go fishin' down to
      C/B  Am7 G                Am7    Bm7 Am7              G   C/G  G
 rock bottom again. Just a few Friends,       just a few friends.

[Solo]
G    C       C/B  Am7 G       Am7 Bm7 Am7       G   C/G  G

G                                                             C
I go for younger women, lived with several awhile, although I ran em away,
C                                                 C/B  Am7 G
Hell they’ll come back one day, and still I can manage a smile.
                 Am7 Bm7 Am7                 G   C/G  G
It just takes awhile,        it just takes awhile.

G (hold)                                                C
Mother, mother ocean, after all my years Ive found, my occupational hazard
                        C/B  Am7 G
being my occupation’s just not around **
 G                    Am  Bm7  Am7                 G
      I feel like Ive drowned,     gonna head up town.
