Another Great.......Great Big Sea tune

Enjoy!


Wave over Wave

         G
My names Able Rodgers, a shareman am I
      C           G             Am           D
On a three masted schooner from Twillingate Isle
     C              G                             C
I've been the world over, north, south, east and west
         G                         Am          D
But the middle of knowheres where I likes it best

Chorus
                 C                G    C        G
Where it's wave over wave. Sea over bow
            C       G          Am       D
I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow
        C         G
There's no other life for a sailor like me
        C             G           Am       D
Then to sail the salt sea boy to sail the sea
            C                    D             G
There's no other life but to sail the salt sea

Well I leave my wife lonely ten months of the year
For she built me a home and raised my children there
She never come out to bid farewell to me
Or can why a sailor must sail the salt sea

Chorus

Ah the work is hard and the hours are long
But my spirit is willing my back it is strong
And when the works over the whisky will pour
We'll dance with the girls upon some foreign shore

I've sailed the world over for decades or more
And oft times I wondered what I do it for
I don't know the answer it's pleasure and pain
But with life to live over I'd do it again

Chorus
