Narrative Of Captain Black Of The Left Bank  Park Bench Rant

[C]A wave [C7]came [Em]swept me [G]off of the [C]deck
Angry [C7]sea [Em]gives and [G]takes it away [C]
I [C7]kept on [Em]swimming, singing, [G]searching for an [C]island or [C7]garden to [Em]lie in[G]
[C]The rain [C7]kept on [Em]falling [G]on to my [C]arms and [C7]legs
They [Em]anchored me to [G]slate gray [C]water
The [C7]albatross [Em]around my neck [G]made it [C]
Hard to [C7]look up to [Em]see the [G]sky  [C]
I [C7]dreamt of the [Em]sand [G]of your [C]beach[C7] where [Em]I’d [G]come [C]ashore
Wake [C7]up a [Em]little saddle [G]soar but make it ho[C]me   [C7]   [Em]   [G]

[C]  [C7]   [Em]   [G]  [C]  [C7]   [Em]   [G]  [C]  [C7]   [Em]   [G]  [C]       
I [C7]was smashed [Em]somewhere [G]in be[C]tween
A murky [C7]sky and the [Em]coming tide, the [G]coming tide  [C]
[C7]Everyday the [Em]same [G]swimming, sinking, feeling
We ros[C]e, my [C7]rose but we [Em]did a lot of [G]falling  [C]
As they [C7]pulled me [Em]from [G]their [C]nets, [C7]stood on the [Em]deck [G]   [C]
[C7]Arms out [Em]stretched [G]to the [C]horizons where I [C7]saw you  [Em]   [G]   [C]
[C7]Sailing over [Em]oceans [G]frozen in [C]your doorway [C7]and me
[Em]Stumbling down your [G]streets speaking  [C]
[C7]Inco[Em]herently [G]with the [C]night [C7]   [Em]   [G]  [C]
[C7]I was dreaming of [Em]your [G]white [C]sand
[C7]unblackened by t[Em]ime and time [G]again
Where I[C] c[C7]ould find some [Em]common ground to [G]kiss and call my [C]own  [C7]   [Em]   [G]

[C]  [C7]   [Em]   [G]  [C]  [C7]   [Em]   [G]
