CGAmF
Just to wake up in the morning to the quiet of the cove
 CGC
And hear aunt Bessie talking to herself.
 CGAmF
And to hear poor uncle John mumbling wishes too old now
 CGC
It made me feel like everything was fine.
 GAmFC
I was born down by the water, it's here I'm gonna stay
 GAmFC
I've searched for all the reasons why I should go away.
 GAmF
Course I haven't got the thirst for all those modern day toys
 CGC
So I'll just take my chances with those saltwater joys.

 CGAmF
Following the little brook, as it trickles to the shore
 CGC
In the autumn winds the trees are flaming red.
 CGAmF
Kicking leaves that fall around me, watching sunset paint the hills
 CGC
It's all I'll never need to feel at home.
 GAmFC
This island that we cling to has been handed down with pride
 GAmFC
But folks that fought to live here, taking hardships all in stride.
 GAmF
So I'll compliment her beauty, hold on to my good-byes
 CGC
And I'll stay, take my chances with those saltwater joys.

 CGAmF
How can I leave those mornings, with the sunrise on the cove
 CGC
And the gulls like fly's surrounding Clayton's wharf.
 CGAmF
Platters island wrapped in rainbow, in the evening after fog
 CGC
The ocean smells are perfume to my soul.
 GAmFC
Some go to where the buildings reach to meet the clouds

 GAmFC
Where warm and gentile people turn to swarm and faceless crowds.
 GAmF
So I'll do without their riches, Glamour and the noise
 CGC
And I'll stay, take my chances with those saltwater joys.

Bridge
 GAmFC
Some go to where the buildings reach to meet the clouds
 GAmFC
Where warm and gentile people turn to swarm and faceless crowds.
 GAmF
So I'll do without their riches, Glamour and the noise
 CGC
And I'll stay, take my chances with those saltwater joys
