Gordon Lightfoot - A Passing Ship


CAPO: 4th Fret



[INTRO:] G    C/G    G    C/G   G

[VERSE 1:]
               C/G                    G 
A passing ship, I have found the open ocean 
               C/G                           G    D
Give me no lip, the waves roll by as I press on 
             C/G                  G       D
A sunlit sea, on the first day in April 
                   C/G                        G    
How fresh the wind, will you miss me when I'm gone


[VERSE 2:]
               C/G                     G 
How many words, how many songs still unwritten 
              C/G                        G     D
How many ships of the line have come and gone 
                     C/G                   G       D
In the good old days, may they never be forgotten 
                   C/G                     G    
They had heavy wind or they had no wind at all


[INSTRUMENTAL:] G  D   F  C   G


[VERSE 3:]
               C/G                    G 
A passing ship, it is midnight on the ocean 
                     C/G                     G       D
Had a real long trip, I have been at sea all winter 
                     C/G                  G      D
When my ship came in, I was giving up the ghost 
                   C/G                           G    
I think I should be leaving those passing ships alone


[VERSE 4:]
                       C/G                          G 
When the sea runs high, the sea runs wild and I'm unsteady 
                   C/G                             G       D
And I think of you, in the warmth of your home and family 
                  C/G                    G       D
When love is true, there is no truer occupation 
                  C/G                     G    
And may this gale, blow us to the ones we love


[VERSE 5:]
            C/G      G 
Another day, another ocean 
               C/G                         G    D
Give me no lip, but stand aside as I press on 
             C/G                   G      D 
A sunlit sea, on the last day in October 
                   C/G                        G     D 
How fresh the wind, will you miss me from now on 
                   C/G                     G 
I guess I should be leaving passing ships alone


[OUTRO:] G  D   F  C   G
