Verse 1:
 Db-5Csus4C
        "All hands on deck   we've run afloat"
 Cm7Bbsus4Bb
        I heard the captain cry 
 Fm/Ab/GAb/F/Eb
        Explore the ship   replace the cook 
 Db-5E6
        Let no one leave alive
 B/F#F#
        Across the straits   around the horn
 BBmaj7B7
        How far can sailors fly
 EEm6/G
        A twisted path   our tortured course
 B/F#F#sus4F#
        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)
-- another ace 60's tab from Andrew Rogers
