Saltwater Joys  Buddy Wasisname and The Other Fellers

Just to[C] wake up in the m[G]orning to the[Am] quiet of the [F]cove
And he[C]ar aunt Bessie tal[G]king to herse[C]lf.
And to he[C]ar poor uncle Jo[G]hn mumbling wi[Am]shes too old n[F]ow
It ma[C]de me feel li[G]ke everything was fi[C]ne.
I was bo[G]rn down by the w[Am]ater, it's he[F]re I'm gonna st[C]ay
I've sear[G]ched for all the rea[Am]sons why [F]I should go aw[C]ay.
Course I haven't got the th[G]irst for all those[Am] modern day to[F]ys
So I'll just t[C]ake my chances with those salt[G]water jo[C]ys.

Foll[C]owing the little brook,[G] as it tri[Am]ckles to the sh[F]ore
In the aut[C]umn winds the tr[G]ees are flaming r[C]ed.
Kicki[C]ng leaves that fa[G]ll around me, wat[Am]ching sunset paint the hi[F]lls
It's a[C]ll I'll never ne[G]ed to feel at ho[C]me.
This isl[G]and that we cl[Am]ing to has been ha[F]nded down with pr[C]ide
But fo[G]lks that fought to l[Am]ive here, taking hard[F]ships all in st[C]ride.
So I'll comp[G]liment her beauty, h[Am]old on to my good[F]-byes
And I'll stay,[C] take my chances with those[G] saltwater jo[C]ys.

How can [C]I leave those morn[G]ings, with the su[Am]nrise on the co[F]ve
And the gu[C]lls like fly's surro[G]unding Clayton's wh[C]arf.
Platters is[C]land wrapped in rai[G]nbow, in the ev[Am]ening after f[F]og
The oc[C]ean smells are per[G]fume to my so[C]ul.
Some g[G]o to where t[Am]he buildings re[F]ach to meet the cl[C]ouds
Where wa[G]rm and gentile pe[Am]ople turn to swa[F]rm and faceless cro[C]wds.
So I'll do wi[G]thout their riches[Am], Glamour and the no[F]ise
And I'll stay[C], take my chances with those[G] saltwater jo[C]ys.
Bridge
Some g[G]o to where t[Am]he buildings re[F]ach to meet the cl[C]ouds
Where wa[G]rm and gentile pe[Am]ople turn to swa[F]rm and faceless cro[C]wds.
So I'll do wi[G]thout their riches[Am], Glamour and the no[F]ise
And I'll stay[C], take my chances with those[G] saltwater jo[C]ys
