Tuning: Standard


Next time out to sea 
Bring enough soil to bury me 
For I don't want my final jig 
In the belly of a squid 

G    D    G    D    C   Bb   D C Bb A G

G                D          
Next time out to sea 
G                         D
Bring enough soil to bury me 
C                    Bb
For I don't want my final jig 
       D  C  Bb A G
In the belly of a squid
G                        D
Take my trousers take my shirt 
G                       D
Just give me that sweet dirt 
C                        Bb
For the water's cold and grim 
       D    C    Bb   A  G
And I never did learn to swim
G                        D 
No her love never set me free 
G                    D
So I set off for the ocean
C                          Bb 
Now in my dreams she comes to me 
D   C  Bb  A  G
Whispering of peace 
G                        D
But I've known since the day 
G                        D
That we sailed for Santiago
C                     Bb 
Her dry embrace would kiss my face
D  C  Bb  A  G 
No never, No more 

G            C     D
The sea is a cruel mistress 
G            C     D
The sea is a cruel mistress 

G    D    G    D    C   Bb   D C Bb A G


G                 D
Many moons to the day
G                     D
That I threw her love away
C                      Bb 
Now every whale spouts "go to hell" 
D      C     Bb    A     G
As the wind laughs in my face
G                        D 
I've grown harder on the eyes
G                D
And salty to the taste
C                      Bb 
My pride has gone with the wake
     D    C Bb   A   G
As I wait a cold wet grave 
G             D
I rose to the smell
G               D 
Of a wet desert hell
C                Bb 
And I thought to myself
        D    C  Bb A    G 
How'd I wind up in this jail
G                      D 
Till a voice called to me
G                    D 
From deep within the sea 
C                    Bb
Dry your eyes my dear fisherman
     D   C Bb    A  G 
Your ass belongs to me 

G            C     D
The sea is a cruel mistress
G            C     D 
The sea is a cruel mistress

G    D    G    D    C   Bb   D C Bb A G
G    D    G    D    C   Bb   D C Bb A G

 
Eb                     D
The earth will rest my bones
Bb           G 
Lord I know, Lord I know
Eb                          D 
But I'll see you when I get home
Bb             G 
From the cold, yeah from the cold 

No her love never set me free 
So I set out for the ocean 
Now in my dreams she comes to me 
Whispering of peace 
But I've known since the day 
That we sailed for Santiago 
Her dry embrace would kiss my face 
No never, no more 

G            C     D
The sea is a cruel mistress
G            C     D 
The sea is a cruel mistress 

G                          
Next time out to sea 
             Eb
Bring enough soil to bury me 
    D             
For I don't want my final jig 
       
In the belly of a squid

G                
Next time out to sea
             Eb
Bring enough soil to bury me
    D
For in my dreams she comes to me

Whispering of peace 

G                D          
Next time out to sea 
G                         D
Bring enough soil to bury me 
C                    Bb
For I don't want my final jig 
       D  C  Bb A G
In the belly of a squid!
