	Db-5               Csus4          C

	A twisted path   our tortured course
	B/F#             F#sus4  F#
	And no one left alive

Verse 2:

	We sailed for parts unknown to man
	Where ships crawl home to die
	No lofty peak nor fortress bold
	Could match our captain's eyes

	Upon the seven seasick days
	We made out for the coast
	The sand so white and sea so blue
	No mortal place at all

Verse 3:

	We fired the gun and burned the mast

	And rode from ship to shore
	The captain cried, we sailors wept
	Our tears were tears of joy

	How many moons and many Junes
	Have passed since we made land
	A salty dog, a seaman's log
	Your witness my own hand

[repeat string/piano break; end on Db-5 w/seagulls]
