 The Great Lakes Song - Performed by Pat Dailey
                       Written by Pat Dailey & Shel Silverstein


    G                                Em
The Great Lakes are a diamond on the hand of North America
C                             D
Brightly shining jewel on the friendship bordering
G                  Em
Freshwater highway coming down from Canada
C                        D                 G
All along the shoreline, you can hear them sing


chorus:
G                       Em
Sweet mother Michigan,  father Superior
C                             D
Coming down from Mackinac and Sault St. Marie
G                      Em
Blue water Huron, Flow down to Lake Erie-O
C                   D             G
Fall to Ontario and run on out to sea


G                            Em
Hearty are the seamen on the ships that load the iron ore
C                              D
Sailing out of Thunder Bay and bound for Buffalo
G                             Em
Hearty are the fishermen just like their fathers were before
C                           D              G
Say they'll bury me at sea come my time to go


(chorus)

G                                Em
Oh the tales the sailors spin of mermaids singing in the wind
    C                            D
the sinking of the Bessemer, the drowning of the crew
G                             Em
Memories of waters crossed of women won and fortunes lost
C                                     D            G
Are etched upon their faces and their faded old tatoos


Em                               C
Down below the quarter decks the old men mend the fishing nets
G                             D
Up above the windy bridge the young men curse into the wind
Em                                     C
All along the winds of straits(?) the wives and mothers lie awake
G                           D
Pray on lady of the lake to send them home again

(chorus)
