[Intro] 
C C F C C F G7

[Verse 1]

C                                F               C
The canals, and the bridges, the embankments and cuts,
                 F              C               G7
They blasted and dug with their sweat and their guts,
C                          F          G7
They never drank water but whiskey by pints,
C                    F               C               G
And the shanty towns rang with their songs and their fights.

[Chorus]

C                          F         C
Navigator, Navigator, rise up and be strong,
               F                C          G7
The morning is here and there's work to be done,
C                              F                G7
Take your pick and your shovel and the bold dynamite,
C                  F            C          G
For to shift a few tons of this earthly delight,
C                   F            C          G
Yes, to shift a few tons of this earthly delight.

[Verse 2]

C                                   F            C
They died in their hundreds with no sign to mark where
                      F         C           G7
Save the brass in the pocket of the entrepreneur.
C                                   F         G7
By landslide and rockblast they got buried so deep
C                    F                 C               G
That in death if not life they'll have peace while they sleep.

[Chorus]

C                          F         C
Navigator, Navigator, rise up and be strong,
               F                C          G7
The morning is here and there's work to be done,
C                              F                G7
Take your pick and your shovel and the bold dynamite,
C                  F            C          G
For to shift a few tons of this earthly delight,
C                   F            C          G
Yes, to shift a few tons of this earthly delight.

[Verse 3]

C                                F               C
Their mark on this land is still seen and still laid
              F                   C             G7
The way for a commerce where vast fortunes were made
C                                 F         G7
The supply of an Empire where the sun never set
C                    F                 C               G
Which is now deep in darkness, but the railway's there yet.

[Chorus]

C                          F         C
Navigator, Navigator, rise up and be strong,
               F                C          G7
The morning is here and there's work to be done,
C                              F                G7
Take your pick and your shovel and the bold dynamite,
C                  F            C          G
For to shift a few tons of this earthly delight,
C                   F            C          G
Yes, to shift a few tons of this earthly delight.
