                             "A Salty Dog"
                      (Gary Brooker - Keith Reid)


	(seagulls and surf sound effects)

	strings (arranged for guitar):

	 Db-5             Csus4     C       Cm7           Bbsus4     Bb

Verse 1:

	Db-5               Csus4          C
	"All hands on deck   we've run afloat"
	Cm7                Bbsus4 Bb
	I heard the captain cry
        Ab6          Ab  Cm/G  Fm Fm7           Cm/Eb
	Explore the ship       replace the cook
	Db-5               E6
	Let no one leave alive

	B/F#                 F#
	Across the straits   around the horn
	B           Bmaj7   B7
	How far can sailors fly
	E               Em6/G
	A twisted path   our tortured course
	B/F#             F#sus4  F#
	And no one left alive

Verse 2:

	We sailed for parts unknown to man
	Where ships come home to die
	No lofty peak   nor fortress bold
	Could match our captain's eye

	Upon the seventh seasick day
	We made our port of call
	The sand so white and sea so blue
	No mortal place at all


	strings/piano (arranged for guitar):

	  B                     Ddim
	  v     v     v     v     v     v     v     v

	 F#                    Adim              F#dim
	  v     v     v     v    v     v     v     v

Verse 3:

	We fired the gun and burned the mast
	And rode from ship to shore
	The captain cried, we sailors wept
	Our tears were tears of joy

	Now many moons and many Junes
	Have passed since we made land
	And the salty dog, the seaman's log
	Your witness in my own hand

[repeat string/piano break; end on Db-5 w/seagulls]
