verse 1:
Db-5 Csus4 C "All hands on deck we've run afloat" Cm7 Bbsus4 Bb I heard the captain cry Fm/Ab Fm Fm7 Explore the ship replace the cook Db-5 E6 That no one leave alive
B/F# F# Across the straits around the horn B Bmaj7 B7 How far can sailors fly E Em6/G A twisted path our tortured course B/F# F#sus4 F# 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
