Yesterdays Fisherman  BuddyWasName

Now the [D]ice still [C]clings to the [G]rocks in the h[D]arbor
And the men are out [C]pounding in [G]Uncle Jim's [D]shed,
For there's traps to be [C]built and [G]more to be [D]mended,
No time for to w[C]aste for there's [G]work to be [D]done.

Chorus:
For a f[G]isherman knows that l[D]ife don't come e[A]asy,
What he b[G]uilds with his h[D]ands must come tumbling [A]down.
But then h[G]ow could l[Bm]ife              be [A]any other w[D]ay?


With the c[D]ourage that G[C]od gives and his f[G]orefathers' k[D]now-how
They have clung to the s[C]hores like [G]kelp to the r[D]ocks.
Generations of [C]hardships have [G]all been f[D]orgotten,
With a grin and a [C]chuckle they know l[G]ife must go [D]on.
Chorus:
For a f[G]isherman knows that l[D]ife don't come e[A]asy,
What he b[G]uilds with his h[D]ands must come tumbling [A]down.
But then h[G]ow could l[Bm]ife              be [A]any other w[D]ay?

And they k[D]now of the p[C]leasures of [G]soft, easy l[D]iving
And they know that with those [C]pleasures come [G]torment and [D]pain'
So they keep on [C]choppin', [G]poundin' and [D]haulin',
For its only the [C]hard work that [G]keeps a man s[D]ane.

Chorus:
For a f[G]isherman knows that l[D]ife don't come e[A]asy,
What he b[G]uilds with his h[D]ands must come tumbling [A]down.
But then h[G]ow could l[Bm]ife              be [A]any other w[D]ay?

Now the [D]ice still [C]clings to the [G]rocks in the [D]harbor,
But the boys are still [C]sleepin' at [G]quarter to [D]two.
They'll be drinkin' and [C]smokin' and [G]dealing with [D]boredom,
For it’s hard when you're [C]idle and no [G]work to [D]do.

Chorus:
For a f[G]isherman knows that l[D]ife don't come e[A]asy,
What he b[G]uilds with his h[D]ands must come tumbling [A]down.
But then h[G]ow could l[Bm]ife              be [A]any other w[D]ay?
