Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Sailors Rest  Stan Rogers

It's [G]acrimony [D]down in the card-[G]room, with [C]winning hands thrown on the baize
For-[D]gotten cards wait on the end of debate on the[C] good old[D7] days
[G]Captains and mates gettin' tes[G7]-ty, with [C]memories not of the [A7]best
And [G]tempers are flyin', [C]down at the Sailor's [G]Rest


[G]Blue eyes [D]in wrinkled [G]Mo-rocco, sti[C]ll search the horizon for squalls
And [D]Zeroes in the sky, and the watchkeeper's eye, and the[C] pawnshop[D7] balls
The [G]spice in the wind off of[G7] Java, and the [C]bars in Papeete were [A7]best
But the [G]deck is too steady, [C]down at the Sailor's [G]Rest
CHORUS

And, [D-D7-D7sus4]oh, how they tal[G7]ked of the day they'd ar-riv[C]ed
When [Em]after the years, all the [C]storms and the tears, still [Am]very much a-[D]live
And, [D7-D7sus4]oh, how their [G7]lives were spilled out on the [C]floor
From the [Em]battered old seabags, the [Am]journals and logs
And the k[Em]eepsakes locked in the c[A7]hests
That were [G]stowed in the attic, [C]down at the Sailor's [G]Rest

No [G]rail on the [D]messroom [G]table, and you're [C]dead if you spit on the floor
[D]No grog allowed, no singin' too loud, and n[C]o locks on th[D7]e doors
But there's [G]always a fire in the [G7]card room, and the [C]tucker is always the [A7]best
And they'll [G]end it together, [C]down at the Sailor's [G]Rest
CHORUS

And, [D-D7-D7sus4]oh, how they [G7]talked of the day they'd ar-[C]rived
When [Em]after the years, all the [C]storms and the tears, still [Am]very much a-[D]live
And, [D7-D7sus4]oh, how their l[G7]ives were spilled out on the f[C]loor
From the [Em]battered old seabags, the [Am]journals and logs
And the k[Em]eepsakes locked in the c[A7]hests
That were [G]sold at the auction, [C]down at the Sailor's [G]Rest

So i[G]t's acrimony[D] down in [G]the card-room, wit[C]h winning hands thrown on the baize
[D]For-gotten cards wait on the end of debate [C]on the good o[D7]ld days
[G]Captains and mates gettin' t[G7]es-ty, with [C]memories not of the [A7]best
But they'll [G]end it together', [C]down at the Sailor's [G]Rest
It's [G]acrimony [D]down in the card-[G]room
