James Keelaghan - Snap The Line Tight




INTRO: C  Em  D  (4x)

           G            D    Em         C
I've got a halibut boat, the opening is over
    G                 Am          C            D
The fish just weren't biting, our catch is way down
      C         D            Em            C
We're salvagers now, there's logs that are waiting
   G            Am           C            D
We pull 'em off shore and we sell them in town


CHORUS:
          C             D
And we'll snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
C             D
Snap the line tight
      Am             D
She's rocking, she's free
C             D
Snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
    C             Em       D
And slide 'em off into the sea


INTERLUDE: C  Em  D  (2x)


G        D            Em       C
How many thousands of acres of forest
    G             Am            C            D
Lie scattered and heaped by the wind and the tide
          C         D            Em              C
Well, the companies cut them and boomed them and lost them
    G            Am      C              D
And left them forever to rot where they lie


        G              D             Em        C
She's a six foot thick hemlock, half-sunken in sand
      G         Am      C             D
Gotta dig out a hole to pass the line through
C         D              Em             C
Wrap her around and when she's tied and ready
     G            Am      C          D
Then stand clear away and signal the crew 


CHORUS:
   C             D
To snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
C             D
Snap the line tight
      Am             D
She's rocking, she's free
C             D
Snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
    C             Em       D
And slide 'em off into the sea


INTERLUDE: C  Em  D  (2x)


     G          D           Em           C
It's thirty-six hours we've been without sleep
      G            Am            C           D
Gotta boom them by dawn if we're making this tide
       C         D           Em         C
It's a five hour haul with a Nor'wester blowing
      G              Am          C            D
And a starboard-side swell for a bloody rough ride


        G             D       Em          C
And our back deck's a mess of anchors and peaveys
    G           Am          C          D
All sliding and tangling in cables and chains
C            D           Em          C
We're in the middle with chokers and pike-poles
   G             Am               C         D
To wrap the logs tight so they're not lost again


CHORUS:
          C             D
And we'll snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
C             D
Snap the line tight
      Am             D
She's rocking, she's free
C             D
Snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
    C             Em       D
And slide 'em off into the sea


CHORUS:
      C             D
We'll snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
C             D
Snap the line tight
      Am             D
She's rocking, she's free
C             D
Snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
    C             Em       D
And slide 'em off into the sea


CHORUS:
      C             D
We'll snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
C             D
Snap the line tight
      Am             D
She's rocking, she's free
C             D
Snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
    C             Em       D
And slide 'em off into the sea


CHORUS:   (## repeat and fade to end ##)
      C             D
We'll snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
C             D
Snap the line tight
      Am             D
She's rocking, she's free
C             D
Snap the line tight
C          G
Haul them away
    C             Em       D
And slide 'em off into the sea
