home when at sea.

Intro
=====

Am   F   C   C
Am   F   C   C

Verse 1
=======

               C
Don't mind the rain or the rolling sea

                           C
The weary night never worries me

                C/E                Fmaj7
But the hardest time in a sailor's day

                Am F      C      C
Is to watch the sun as it dies a-way

                Am         F    C      C
Here's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line

Am   F   C   C


Verse 2
=======

           C
The finest ship that sails the sea

                                   C
Is still a prison for the likes of me

            C/E               Fmaj7
But give me wings like Noah's dove

            Am     F       C      C
I'll fly up harbour to the girl I love

                  Am         F    C      C
And it's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line

Am   F   C   C


Verse 3
=======

                            C
Oh Lord if dreams were only real

                                 C
I'd have my hands on that wooden wheel

                C/E                Fmaj7
And with all my heart I'd turn her round

             Am  F           C       C
And tell the boys that we're homeward bound

                  Am         F    C      C
And it's one more day on the Grey Funnel Line

= inst =

(as the verse)

C   C   C/E   Fmaj7
Am  F   C     C
Am  F   C     C


Verse 4
=======

I'll pass the time like some machine

                         C
Until the waters turn to green

                   C/E              Fmaj7
Then I'll dance on down that walk a-shore

             Am  F       C       C
And sail the Grey Funnel Line no more

             Am          F    C  C
And sail the Grey Funnel Line no more
