The Captain and the Kid  Jimmy Buffett

By Jimmy Buffett
Transcribed by John McKeon
Intro: D - G - D - G
[D]I never used to [G]miss the chance[D] to climb up on his [G]knee
[D]And listen to th[G]ose many tales[E] of life upon the [A]sea
We'd [F#m]go sailing back on [G]Barkentines [F#m]and talk of things he d[G]id
[F#m]Tomorrow just a [G]day away for the [E]Captain[A] and the [D]kid
(same chords)
His world had gone from sailing ships to raking mom's backyard
He never could adjust to land although he tried so hard
We both were growing older then and wiser with our years
That's when I came to understand the course his heart still steers
 Bridge:F#m - G - F#m - G -F#m - G - E - A - D

(same chords as other verses)
He died about a month ago while winter filled the air
And though I cried I was so proud to love a man so rare
He's somewhere on the ocean now that place he oughta be
With one hand on the starboard rail he's wavin' back at me
(same chords as other verses)
I never used to miss the chance to climb up on his knee
And listen to the many tales of life upon the sea
We'd go sailing back on Barkentines and talk of things he did
The world was just a day away for the Captain and the kid
For the [E]Captain[A] and this [D]kid
[D] [-] [Dsus4] [-] [D] [-] [Dsus4]
