Verse 1
G                                             C
Mother, mother ocean, I have heart you call, wanted to sail upon your waters

since I was three feet tall. Youve seen it all, youve seen it all.

Verse 2
Watched the men who rode you, switch from sails to steam. And in your belly you hold the

Verse 4
Ive done a bit of smugglin', Ive run my share of grass. I made enough money to buy

I have been drunk now for over two weeks, I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few

just a few friends.

Verse 6

Verse 7

day, and still I can manage a smile. It just takes awhile, it just takes awile.

Verse 8
Mother, mother ocean, after all these years Ive found my occupational hazard being my 
just not around **

** G                    Am   Bm7      Am7      G    Am Bm7 Am7 G D7 G
      I feel like Ive drowned, gonna head up town.
