Mike McGear is Paul McCartney's brother and released the excellent McGear lp in early spring 1975.
This beautiful, and singular, track led off side two.

Intro
F G F Em Dm G C

  C
There is a broken casket,
                          G
Washed up by the morning tide,

With a young girl's magic momentos,
                          C
And second hand jewelry inside.
   C
Letters from long dead lovers,
                    G   F
Tied now with a seaweed bow,
          G    F      Em
A first world war photograph
      Dm     G   C
Of a German matelot.
   F     G     F      Em
A first world war photograph
       Dm    F  C
Of a German matelot.*


    F
Attracted by the glittering, 
    Eb
A hermit crab approaches
 F
The caskets gaudy entrails
      Eb            G
Of necklaces and broaches.


Two ticket for Hohenlinden,
Lie half buried in the sand.
And a peom by Christian Morgenstern copied carefully by hand.
As the sun climbs high in the heavens,
And fisherman return from the kill,
The hermit cran scuttles for safety as children swoop down from the hill.
The hermit crab scuttles for safety as children swoop down from the hill.
