The Captain And The Kid
By Jimmy Buffett
Transcribed by John McKeon

Intro: D - G - D - G

D               G              D                   G
I never used to miss the chance to climb up on his knee
D               G             E                 A
And listen to those many tales of life upon the sea 
     F#m                G           F#m                    G
We'd go sailing back on Barkentines and talk of things he did
F#m             G                E      A        D 
Tomorrow just a day away for the Captain and the kid 

(same chords)
His world had gone from sailing ships to raking mom's backyard 
He never could adjust to land although he tried so hard 
We both were growing older then and wiser with our years 
That's when I came to understand the course his heart still steers 

Bridge:F#m - G - F#m - G -F#m - G - E - A - D

(same chords as other verses)
He died about a month ago while winter filled the air 
And though I cried I was so proud to love a man so rare 
He's somewhere on the ocean now that place he oughta be 
With one hand on the starboard rail he's wavin' back at me 

(same chords as other verses)
I never used to miss the chance to climb up on his knee 
And listen to the many tales of life upon the sea 
We'd go sailing back on Barkentines and talk of things he did 
The world was just a day away for the Captain and the kid

        E      A         D   
For the Captain and this kid 

D - Dsus4 - D - Dsus4
