                G
He was a fugitive with a pseudo name
C                         D
Lost his mind in a hurricane
G
Coconut upside his head
C                            D
People said he'd be better dead
Em
Cause his glory days are gone
C                               
Sits on the shore with his saxophone
D  D/C - D/B - D/A
and plays

In another place, in another time
He was a soldier in his prime
On the battlefield, makin' history
Young men died for his destiny
And their widows came each day
Till he was forced to run away

So he bought a town, but he sold the sea
Claimed a shallow victory

On an iron ship, with a wooden crew
They hit the reef when the moon was new
Now he cries himself to sleep
On a beach made of promises he meant to keep
Long ago
C            D                    G
Nobody Speaks To The Captain No More
C                       D
Nobody talks about the war
C                       D           G 
Hey what the hell were we fighting for
C                       D
Such a long long time ago
Em                               D
And now the monkeys and the iguanas
Em                    D
They listen to his song
Em                      D 
A most uncaptive audience
A7                       D  D/C - D/B - D/A
He plays to all night long

So the story goes, he was dressed to kill
When he jumped from the old mahogany mill
And the jungle beasts, they were heard to wail
As the saxophone still played the scale
For a man they never know who looked like me and you
Long ago

Nobody Speaks To The Captain No More
No one is interested in settling old scores
Hey what the hell were we fighting for
Such a long, long time ago

Nobody Speaks to The Captain No More
No one is interested in settling old scores
Hey what the hell were we fighting for
Such a long time ago
