Another Great.......Great Big Sea tune
Wave over Wave
My names [G]Able Rodgers, a shareman am I
On a t[C]hree masted [G]schooner from [Am]Twillingate I[D]sle
I've [C]been the world [G]over, north, south, east and w[C]est
But the m[G]iddle of knowheres where I[Am] likes it be[D]st
Where it's wave o[C]ver wave. Sea ove[G]r bow[C] [G]
I'm as happy[C] a man a[G]s the sea w[Am]ill allow[D]
There's [C]no other l[G]ife for a sailor like me
Then to [C]sail the salt [G]sea boy to s[Am]ail the s[D]ea
There's no o[C]ther life but to sail[D] the salt sea[G]
Well I leave my wife lonely ten months of the year
For she built me a home and raised my children there
She never come out to bid farewell to me
Or can why a sailor must sail the salt sea
Ah the work is hard and the hours are long
But my spirit is willing my back it is strong
And when the works over the whisky will pour
We'll dance with the girls upon some foreign shore
I've sailed the world over for decades or more
And oft times I wondered what I do it for
I don't know the answer it's pleasure and pain
But with life to live over I'd do it again
