Verse (Riff1: Bm F# A7 Bm)
Dead eye from the wood of life
Hold the ropes and the rigging lines
Red-eye a.m. Here I lie
Verse (Riff1: Bm F# A7 Bm)
Shipwreck passing underneath
What of the sailor and her spinning wheel?
What was she thinking being
Swallowed by the water whole?
Verse (Riff1: Bm F# A7 Bm)
Red on the left, green on the right
You can see me coming in the morning light
Brass and glass and rusted iron
Verse (Riff1: Bm F# A7 Bm)
Sextant here for the heavenly bodies
Compass here but the needle's shot
Magnetic deviation screws me up
Modified Verse
[A7]Break the glass from your hanging lant[Bm]erns
[A7]Break the sea with your blackened anch[Bm]ors
[F#]And you might end up a floating junk pi[A7]le
[F#]But you can always scramble to salvage a [Bm]smile
[F#]But you can always scramble to salvage a sm[Bm]ile
