[Intro]
Cm D# Bb Cm

[Verse]
           Cm
He's got a voice that brings him silver,
      D#
And a heart that reaps him gold
Bb
Delivery of chivalry
       Cm
From a hundred years ago
       Cm
And he sings his songs of freedom,
    D#
And of loneliness and joy,
   Bb
He speaks of kings and he speaks of queens,
       Cm
And he sings of girls and boys

[Chorus]
    Cm
But I don't ever, I don't stand a chance when
    D#           Bb
Compared to this man, friends
   Cm                         D#
No I can't ever, I can't ever be the
Bb     Cm
Man he was.

[Verse]
           Cm
And if you listen to his drum beat,
        D#
You can hear it far and wide
           Bb
He sings a major key for a minor fee
        Cm
Keeping rhythm and in time
        Cm
And his ships, they run like clockwork
       D#
To the bosun's beating drum
        Bb
For the night they hide where the dragons fly,
        Cm
And the shantyman sings his song.

[Chorus]
    Cm
But if you'd ever stop to pause and listen,
      D#          Bb
You'd see what is missing
    Cm
But all your eyes and all your ears
    D#
Are vacant,
Bb      Cm
Eluding time

[Instrumental]
Cm D# Bb Cm x2

[Chorus]
    Cm
But I don't ever, I don't stand a chance when
    D#           Bb
Compared to this man, friends
   Cm                         D#
No I can't ever, I can't ever be the
Bb     Cm
Man he was.

[Verse]
           Cm
And if you listen to his drum beat,
        D#
You can hear it far and wide
           Bb
He sings a major key for a minor fee
        Cm
Keeping rhythm and in time
        Cm
And his ships, they run like clockwork
       D#
To the bosun's beating drum
        Bb
For the night they hide where the dragons fly,
        Cm
And the shantyman sings his song.

[Chorus]
    Cm
But if you'd ever stop to pause and listen,
      D#          Bb
You'd see what is missing
    Cm
But all your eyes and all your ears
    D#
Are vacant,
Bb      Cm
Eluding time
