Nautical Disaster  The Tragically Hip




I had this [Em]dream where I r[D]elished the f[G]ray
and the [D]screaming filled [Em]my head all [D]day. [C] [D]
It was as [Em]though I'd been [D]spit here, settled [G]in,
into the [D]pocket of a [Em]lighthouse on [D]some rocky [C]socket,
off the [D]coast of France, dear.[Em] [D]
One after[G]noon, four thousand [D]men died in the [Em]water [D]here
and [C]five hundred [D]more were thrashing [Em]madly as [D]parasites [G]might
in [D]your blood. [Em] [D] [C] [D]
Now I was in a [Em]lifeboat designe[D]d for ten and ten [G]only,
any[D]thing that system[Em]atic would get you [D]hated.
It's [C]not a deal nor a [D]test nor a [Em]love of something [D]fated-([G]uh). [D]
The selection [Em]was quick, the crew was [D]picked (in [G]order)
and [D]those left in the [Em]water got [D]kicked off our [C]pantleg [D]
and we [Em]headed for home.[G] [C] [D]
[Em] [G] [C] [D] Then the [Em]dream ends when the [D]phone rings, you doing [G]alright
he said it's [D]out there most [Em]days and nights,
but [D]only a [C]fool would comp[D]lain.
Any[Em]way [D]Susan, if you [G]like, our conver[D]sation
is as [Em]faint as a [D]sound in my [C]memory, [D]
as those [Em]fingernails[D] scratching on [G]my hull.[D] [Em] [D] [C] [D]
Em G C D (repeat)
