Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Shipyard Creek (for Richard)  Russell Lawson

[F]tighten down that [G]lifeline, buddy
[C]when you're tired and [Am7]feelin' weak
[F]slip the bowline, [E]raise the anchor
[Am7]headin' [G]home to [F]Shipyard [C]Creek

[C]strong backs sweatin'
[Am7]on the river
[F]heave-to haulin'
[G]barge and crane
[C]creosote on timber
[Am7]black and shiny
[F]sun baked metal
[E]rope and chain

REF

second skin suit
warm and wet
quiet darkenss
undertow
slip'ry shapes swim
at vision's edge
sounds of breathing
deep and slow

[Am]engine full [Em]ahead, [F]goin' against the [C]tide
[Am]cutting through the [Em]waves on a [G]Shipyard ride
one full verse instrumental

blazing jets of
acetylene
pilings pounded
hammers crack
low tide rising
mud-black smell
fused with salt from
sunburnt back

REF

2/8/92
