Eddiestone light  Kingston Trio



[G]MY FATHER WAS THE KEEPER OF THE EDDYSTONE LIGHT
HE MARR[C]IED A [D7]MERMAID [G]ONE FINE NIGHT
FROM THIS UNION THERE CAME THREE
[C]A PORPOISE, [D7]A PORGY, AND THE [G]OTHER WAS ME
[A7]YO HO HO, THE [D]WIND BLOWS FREE
[D7]OH FOR THE LIFE ON THE [G]ROLLING SEA
[G]LATE ONE NIGHT I WAS TRIMMING THE GLIM
WHILE SIN[C]GING A [D7]VERSE FROM THE [G]EVENING HYMN
A VOICE FROM STARBOARD SHOUTED "AHOY!"
[C]AND THERE WAS [D7]ME MOTHER SITT[G]ING ON A BUOY
[A7]YO HO HO, THE [D]WIND BLOWS FREE
[D7]OH FOR THE LIFE ON THE [G]ROLLING SEA
[G]WHAT HAS BECOME OF MY CHILDREN THREE?
ME MOT[C]HER [D7]SHE DID [G]ASK OF ME
ONE WAS EXHIBITED AS A TALKING FISH
[C]THE OTHER WAS [D7]SERVED ON A [G]CHAFING DISH
[A7]YO HO HO, THE [D]WIND BLOWS FREE
[D7]OH FOR THE LIFE ON THE [G]ROLLING SEA
[G]THEN THE PHOSPHORUS FLASHED IN HER SEAWEED HAIR
I LOO[C]KED AGAIN [D7]AND ME [G]MOTHER WASN'T THERE
A VOICE CAME ECHOING OUT OF THE NIGHT
[C]I DON'T LIKE THE [D7]KEEPER OF THE [G]EDDYSTONE LIGHT
[A7]YO HO HO, THE [D]WIND BLOWS FREE
[D7]OH FOR THE LIFE ON THE [G]ROLLING SEA
