A Boat Like Gideon Brown

Great Big Sea

--------------------------------------


 G
Oh Gideon lived across the bay,

 CG
 He's getting older now.

 CG
 His boat is big and bold.

 AmD
She has a stalward bow

 G
But my father's boat was second hand,

 CG
 One someone used before,

 CG
 And after every fishing trip

 AmD
My father always swore;

 G
That someday he would save enough

 CG
 To go to St. John's town.

 CG
 And buy himself a big new boat,

 CDG
boat like Gideon Brown.
 CDG
Boat Like Gideon Brown.

CHORUS:

 Em
 'Cause she can punch the head in any gale

 CD
And ride the fishing grounds.

 GEm
often thought how pround I'd be

 CDG
In a boat like Gideon Brown.

 CDG
In a boat like Gideon Brown.

Verse 2:

 G
Many years did pass away

 CG
 And Dad began to fade.

 CG
He didn't talk of boats too much,

 AmD
He said "Son I'm afraid"

 G
If things don't soon improve

 CG
Then I'll be underground;

 CG
 Before we ever get to see ourselves,

 CDG
In a boat like Gideon Brown.

CHORUS

 G
I sat and held his hand one day

 CG
And he said "Son, that policy"

 CG
The insurance is all in your name

 AmD
 You're the beneficiary

 G
And when I'm gone they'll pay you off.

 CG
Then go to St. John's town

 CG
And buy yourself a big, new boat,

 CDG
In a boat like Gideon Brown.

 CDG
In a boat like Gideon Brown.
