                [Verse 1]
        D
        Mother mother ocean, I have heard your call,
        G                                                       D
        Wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall,
                     Em          G           D
        You've seen it all,   you've seen it all

[Verse 2]
        D
        Watched the men who rode you, switch from sail to steam,
        G                                                            D
        And in your belly you hold the treasure, that few have ever seen,
                     Em          G           D
        Most of them dream,   most of them dream

[Verse 3]
        D
        Yes I am a pirate, two hundred years too late,
        G
        The cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder,
                                     D
        I'm an over-forty victim of fate,
                     Em        G           D
        Arriving too late,   arriving too late

[Verse 4]
        D
        I done a bit of smugglin', I've run my share of grass,
        G                                                          D
        I made enough money to buy Miami, but I p**sed it away so fast,
                     Em          G             D
        Never meant to last,   never meant to last

[Verse 5]
        D
        I have been drunk now for over two weeks,

        I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks,
        G                                                                    D
        But I gotta stop wishin', gotta go fishin', I'm down to rock bottom again,
                     Em          G           D
        Just a few friends,   just a few friends

[Verse 6]
        D
        I go for younger women, lived with several a while,
        G                                                                   D
        Though I ran 'em away they come back one day, still could manage a smile,
                     Em          G           D
        Just takes a while,   just takes a while

[Verse 7]
        D
        Mother mother ocean, after all these years I've found,
        G                                                       D
        My occupational hazard being, my occupation's just not around
                        Em          G             D
        Feel like I've  drowned,   gonna head uptown
                        Em          G             D
        Feel like I've  drowned,   gonna head uptown
