Navigator  The Pogues

***Navigator - by P. Gaston
Navigator - as perfomed by The Pogues
(INTRO)D//G//D7//
[D//G//D/A//]  
[D]The can*ls, and the bridges, [G]the embankments and [D]cuts,
[D]They blasted and dug [G]with their sweat a[D]nd their gut[A7]s,
[D]They never drank wate[G]r but whiskey by pin[D7]ts,
[D]And the shanty towns [G]rang with their songs[D] and their fig[A]hts.
(CHORUS)
[D]Navigator, Navigator, rise u[G]p and be stron[D]g,
[D]The morning is he[G]re and there's [D]work to be don[A7]e,
[D]So take your pick and your sho[G]vel and the bold dynami[D7]te,
[D]For to shift a few [G]tons of this ear[D]thly deligh[A]t,
[D]Yes, to shift a few [G]tons of this ear[D]thly deligh[A]t.
They died in their hundreds, with no sign to mark where,
Save the brass in the pocket of the entrepreneur,
By landslide and rockblast they got buried so deep,
That in death if not life they'll have peace while they sleep
(CHORUS)
(FILL) D//G//D/// // /A
D//G//D// /A/A7/D (SORT OF!)
Their mark on this land is still seen and still laid,
The way for a commerce where vast fortunes were made,
The supply of an Empire where the sun never set,
Which is now deep in darkness but the railway's there yet
(CHORUS)
END:FILL
