Robert Mackenzie
 by Paul Gross and Jay Semko
Chords by Av

(32 down on the Robert Mackenzie!)

[Intro chords: Am, G, D] x 2

Am
32 men on a Great Lakes boat
C
Quit the pier at Thunder Bay
G
28,000 tons of coal
     F             G
On a cold November day
Am
800 feet and 10 more long
C
80 feet across
    G
The steel mills of Detroit
         F                  G
Our destination through the frost


Am
At 2 AM on the 2nd
           C
Waves were runnin' up to 40 feet
G
Winds were blowing 60 miles
    F                G
Our engines crankin' heat
Am
At 3:13 we took a wave
    C
Our wheelhouse left behind
    G
The radar slipped beneath the waves
    F               G
And we were runnin' blind
C                       G
Hear me call across the waves
                        Am
If I don't come home tonight
                         F       G
I will make it home some day



CHORUS:
 Am              
(Steel boats and iron men)
G              D
32 down on the Robert Mackenzie
 Am              
(Steel boats and iron men)
G              D
32 down on the Robert Mackenzie
 Am              
(Steel boats and iron men)
E
32 down on the Robert Mackenzie


  Am
A captain name of Phillips
        C
Seekin' shelter from the storm
G        
Turned us south of Bête Grise Bay
   F               G
By way of Keewenaw point
        Am
But the wind was blowing at such a rate
   C
We ended up driftin' north
  G
A wave broke over a knife of rock
F
Six Fathom Shoal


Am
Mackenzie she was cut in half
    C
The stern she ram the bow
    G
The men were calling metaljunk
F                    Em
Flames burned out of hell
Am
Stern kept running on lights of blades
    C
Not one man would be found
G
Captain's last transmission read
F
32 men down

32 men down


C                       G
Hear me call across the waves
                        Am
If I don't come home tonight
                    F        G
I will make it home someday


 Am
(Steel boats and iron men)
G              D
32 down on the Robert Mackenzie
 Am
(Steel boats and iron men)
G              D
32 down on the Robert Mackenzie
 Am
(Steel boats and iron men)
G              D
32 down on the Robert Mackenzie
F                   G
Down Down Down Down Down Down Down Down


C                        G
And they call across the waves
                         Am
If I don't come home tonight
                        F     G
I will make it home someday


C                        G
Yes, I call across the waves
                         Am
If i don´t come home tonight
                         F     G
I will make it home some day
