 CmF
 we're taking on water diesel and stores
 BbC#
 laying up awhile before i'm back on board
 CmFBb
they're patching her up to go fishing again, (fishing again)
 CmF
 they're welding her rudder scrubbing her keel
 BbC#
 scars on her belly need time to heal
 CmD7
in the dock with the trawlermen

i know all the people there's nobody new
soon we'll be leaving with the same old crew
on the green water the tumbling sea
they ain't running like the good old days
time's just slipping down the old slipways
in the dock so dear to me

Chorus:
 CmF
 dark is the night
 BbGmBb
I need a guiding light to keep me
 GmF
from foundering on the rocks
 CmF
 my only prayer
 BbGmBb
is just to see you there at the end   
 FBbBb7
of my wandering back in the dock   

(chord progression: D# Cm F Dm G#
 D7G#7GmBb
Verse 2

I could use a layoff getting my strength back
but there's a loan to pay off and a few skipjack
so it's a turnaround back in the southerly wind
pirates coming in to steal our gold
you can count yourself lucky with a profit in the hold
in the dock when we come in

Chorus

The C# is wrong - it should be a Gm
