song    here's my  song

Em                             D
My father was a fisherman  my mama was a fisherman's friend  And
   G                A              D
I was born in the boredom and the chowder.              
    C                      G           C               G
So when I reached my prime  I left my home in the maritimes
C                G                 D                   Em
headed down the turnpike for New England, Sweet New England.

C  G  C  G  C  G  D  Em  

Em                        D
Holes in my confidence  holes in the knees of my jeans  I's
  G             A            D         C            G
left without a penny in my pocket    Oo  hoo hoo  wee  I's a - bout
   C               G                     C         G
destituted as a kid could be And I wish I wore a ring so I could
D                       Em
hock it   I'd like to hock it

Em                                 D
A young girl in a parking lot was preachin to a crowd  singin.
G                     A              D
sacred songs and reading from the bible   Well I
C              G              C                         G
told her I was lost   and she told me all about the Pentecost  And I
C                     G               D             Em

C  G  C  G  C  G  D  Em  

Just latter on the very same night when I
D                                          G               A
crept to her tent with a flashlight and my long years of innocence
D                 C              G
ended    Well she took me to the woods sayin'
C                              G                    C          G
"Here comes somethin' and it feels so good!" And just like a dog I was
    D                 Em
befriended   I was befriended

Em                D
Oh  oh  what a night Oh what a garden of delight
      G            A           D
Even now that sweet memory lingers.  I was
C                 G            C               G
playin' my guitar   lying underneath the stars  Just
C            G           D                 Em
thankin' the lord for my fingers    for my fingers
