Gordon Lightfoot - Triangle


CAPO: 4th Fret




[INTRO:] C

[VERSE 1:]

Oh, the gist of it all is the first day of fall 
                                 F
Is the day when my ship will set sail 
    G  
The best of all friends will say good-bye again 
                                         C
There's still time for one last glass of ale 


[VERSE 2:]

We'll sail away proudly, our backs to the wall 
                                F
On a southwind and lots of good cheer 
    G  
And when we've looked over the white cliffs of Dover 
                        C
We'll be in Bahama next year


[VERSE 3:]

From Bermuda on down the Triangle around us 
                          F
Will teach us a lesson or two 
        G  
There's many a mate who unevenly stated 
                              C
The course he had charted was true 


[VERSE 4:]

"Don't worry 'bout me", he said, "Go down below 
                          F
Give a certified sailor a turn 
     G  
Just sip on your rum or I'll give you my thumb and say,
                           C
'Son, you got something to learn'"


[CHORUS:]
                              
It's a mighty hard way to come down 
                            G  
And a mighty fine way to be found 
   C          F            C           F
So hand me my grip from an old sailing ship
        C           F          G  
Put the kiss of the dawn on my lips 
                               G7                   C
With some luck tonight I might have her at my fingertips


[VERSE 5:]

Oh, the best of all things is the first day of spring 
                              F
When the water runs heavy and fast 
    G  
The mermaids have all gone to Davy Jones' Ball 
                                        C
And it seems their first trip was their last 


[VERSE 6:]

They had so much fun they don't wish to return 
                                    F
To the beach where they lay all day long 
       G  
They'd rather stay under and boy it's no wonder 
                                C
When all the rock lobsters roll on 

It's a mighty fine way to be found


[VERSE 7:]

Triangle, Triangle, oh, see my ship dangle 
                          F
We're bound for Bahama my friend 
     G  
Like lovers like danger, like babies like mangers 
                              C
But that's where my storybook ends 


[VERSE 8:]

Like soldiers of fortune, believers in god 
                                 F
And all kings without crosses to bear 
    G  
All sweepers and cleaners with no misdemeanours 
                            C
Should try the Triangle out there


[CHORUS:]
                               
It's a mighty hard way to come down 
                            G  
And a mighty fine way to be found 
   C          F            C           F
So hand me my grip from an old sailing ship
        C           F          G  
Put the kiss of the dawn on my lips 
                               G7                   C
With some luck tonight I might have her at my fingertips


[VERSE 9:]

When she took her last tumble, the sea bottom rumbled
                          F
There was no confusion or blame 
    G  
The captain said, "Men we must answer again 
                             C
To the sea, so ye may not complain" 


[VERSE 10:]

And as they lay sleeping down there in the deep 
                                  F
With their faces turned up to the stars 
  G  
A tuna fish turned to a mermaid in bed and said
                        C
"There goes another sandbar"


[CHORUS:]
                               
It's a mighty hard way to come down 
                            G  
And a mighty fine way to be found 
   C          F            C           F
So hand me my grip from an old sailing ship
        C           F          G  
Put the kiss of the dawn on my lips 
                               G7                   C
With some luck tonight I might have her at my fingertips
