Gordon Lightfoot - Shellfish


CAPO: 2nd Fret


 

[INTRO:] Am  C  G  Am  C7  F  Am

[VERSE 1:]
               C           G            Am
Even if you're sure before you begin to cry 
      C7             F            C             Em
Never rest until you find what is best to be forgot 
       F                Dm      G
Let it float off in the night beneath the moon 
   C                Em          C7              F
So brightly shining down on the steeples of the town
 

[CHORUS:]
    G                            C
You must not be downhearted over things you left undone 
        Am        Em              Am
You got faith, to tell you all is well
        Em                  F     Am
And you know you'd best not stop
                        C   Am
There's still a ways to go 


[VERSE 2:]
               C            G            Am
Even if you're sure, before you begin to sigh 
       C7             F            C              Em
Let me show my way is best, on the wayward side tonight 
      F              Dm     G
Let a planet be your guide above the fields 
  C                 Em             C7               F
Beside the sleeping town, when the work is all shut down 


[CHORUS:]
    G                              C
You will not be outsmarted by that song you left unsung 
        Am        Em                   Am
You got faith, to make your world take flight 
         Em              F    Am
There is still a ways to go
                          C   Am
'Bout a thousand miles or so


[VERSE 3:]
               C           G            Am
Even if you're sure before you begin to smile 
       C7            F             C                Em
Let it happen on its own, like the shellfish in the sea 
       F              Dm       G                C
I'm as selfish as can be, when it comes down to me 
              Em            C7            F
And all of my kin, all they want to do is win 


[CHORUS:]
    G                           C
You will not be deserted by old friends you left alone
        Am       Em                Am
You got faith to make you meet the cost 
        Em                  F     Am
And you know you'd best not wait
                    C     Am
He who hesitates is lost
                  C
So even if you're sure


[INSTRUMENTAL:] G  Am  C7  F  C  Em  F


[OUTRO:]
        G                    G7     C
It's so easy to be shellfish in the sea
