Shiver Me Timbers  Tom Waits

INTRO:
[G] [C] [G] [Em7]  
[G] [A7] [Am] [D7]  
[G]I'm leaving my [C]family[G] leaving all my [Em7]friends
[G]My body's at [A7]home but my h[Am]earts in the w[D7]ind
Where the [G]clouds are like[C] headlines on a [G]new front page[Em7] sky
My [G]tears are salt[A7] water and the [Am]moons full[D7] and [G]high
[G]And I know Martin [C]Eden's gonna[G] be proud of[Em7] me
[G]Many before [A7]me have been [Am]drawn by the [D7]sea
To be[G] up in the crow's[C] nest[G] singing my[Em7] say
[G]Shiver me [A7]Timbers as I'm [Am]sailing[D7] awa[G]y
CHORUS:
Now the [Em]fog's lifting and the [B7]sand's shifting
[G]I'm drifting on [A7]out
Old captain Ahab he ain't got n[D7sus4]othing on m[D7]e
So [Em]swallow me , [B7]follow me
[G]I'm travelling a[A7]lone
Blue waters my daughter I'm gonna [D7sus4]skip like a [D7]stone
So[G] please call my[C] misses[G] tell her not to[Em7] cry
[G]Cause my goodbye is[A7] written by the[Am] moon in the[D7] sky
[G]Nobody [C]knows me I can't [G]fathom my [Em7]stayin'
[G]Shiver me [A7]timbers as I'm [Am]sailing[D7] awa[G]y
(CHORUS)
[G]I'm leaving my [C]family[G] leaving all my [Em7]friends
[G]My body's at [A7]home but my h[Am]earts in the w[D7]ind
Where the [G]clouds are like[C] headlines on a [G]new front page[Em7] sky
[G]Shiver me [A7]timbers as I'm [Am]sailing[D7] away[G]
