[Intro]
Gm                        Dm
    As a kid I'd see the ships
Cm             Gm
Slowly taking shape
           Cm7              Dm7
Nightshift riveters and caulkers
Eb            Gm
Keeping us awake

[Verse 1]
Gm    Gm7     Gm6   Dm  Dsus2
   My dad worked at Swan
Cm7             Gm
In the Neptune Yard
                              F
Worked the slipways in all weather
Gm     Eb
7:30 start

[Chorus]
Bb
   Call me up boy
F                       Gm                 Cm7      F7
   Sit you down by the fireside spend some time
Bb
   All the pride boy
F
   And the tears
        Gm                Cm7    F7
Tears enough to fill the Tyne

[Verse 2]
Gm  Gm7 Gm6 Dm Dsus2
   Gleaming vessels
Cm7             Gm
Filling up the sky
                          F
Dwarfing rows of terraced houses
Gm          Eb
Larger than life

Gm     Gm7     Gm6    Dm Dsus2
  Tell me what do you do
Cm7                   Gm
When what you did is gone
                          F
No one throwing you a lifeline
Gm               Eb
How do you carry on?

[Chorus]
Bb
  Call me up boy
F                      Gm                  Cm7     F7
  Sit you down by the fireside spend some time
Bb
  All the pride boy
F
  And the tears
Gm                        Cm7     F7
Tears enough to fill the Tyne

[Interlude]

[Bridge]
Eb                    Dm7
  So much larger than life
               Cm
From father to son
             F  Fsus4 F
We carry it on
Eb                            Dm7
  It isn't going change the world
                              Cm
It isn't going to change the past
      F
'Cos some things are meant to last

Eb                     Dm
  So much larger than life
               Cm
From father to son
            F  Fsus4 F
We carry it on

[Chorus]
Bb
  Call me up boy
F                      Gm                  Cm7      F7
  Sit you down by the fireside spend some time
Bb
  All the pride boy
F
  And the tears
         Gm               Cm7     F7
Tears enough to fill the Tyne
Cm7           F7
fill the Tyne

Perfect! I dropped it down to -3 and put a capo on 3rd to make the fingerings easier
