[VERSES]

G
   Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call
C                                                      G
Wanted to sail upon your waters 
since I was three feet tall
               Am7   G/B   Am7            G
You've seen it all,        you've seen it all

G
   Watch the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam
    C                                                      G
And in your belly you hold the treasure that few have ever seen
             Am7     G/B   Am7          G
Most of them dreams,       most of them dreams

G
Yes I am a pirate, two hundred years too late
    C                                                                             G
The cannons don't thunder there's nothin' to plunder, I'm an over forty victim of fate
             Am7   G/B   Am7          G
Arriving too late,       arriving too late

G
I've done a bit of smugglin' and I've run my share of grass
  C                                                      G
I made enough money to buy Miami but I pissed it away so fast
               Am7   G/B   Am7            G
Never meant to last,       never meant to last

G
I have been drunk now for over two weeks
  G
I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks
         C                                                               G
But I've got to stop wishin', got to go fishin' I'm down to rock bottom again
                Am7      G/B   Am7        G
With just a few friends,       just a few friends

[VERSES]

G
I go for younger women, lived with several awhile

             C                                                           G
And though I ran away, they'll come back one day, I still could manage a smile
               Am7    G/B   Am7         G
It just takes awhile,       just takes awhile

G
   Mother, mother ocean, after all these years I've found
   C                                                    G
My occupational hazard being, my occupation’s just not around
                 Am7      G/B       Am7    G
I feel like I've drowned,     gonna head uptown
                 Am7      G/B   Am7   G
I feel like I've drowned

The Am To Bm7 is wrong, the easiest thing is Am to D

Yes redbig it is easier, but use your ear - it is most definitely not a D chord. 40 plus years of playing here, just because it is easier doesn't make it right. Work on that ear, your fingers will follow with the right chords. Good luck.
