Capo 4th
F G Am7 C F Am7 D G E A7 D G C
        C       C6         C     
Oh, the harbour lights are gleamin',
         F                   C
 And the evening's still and dark;
         Em               Am7
 And the seagulls are all dreaming,
         D                 G
 Seagull dreams on Amherst Rock.
         C       G7     C
 And the mist is slowly drifting,
        F                    Am
 As the shorefront lights go dim;
         C       Em    Am7
 And the moon is gently liftin',
        D                               G
 As the last ship's - the last ship's - comin' in.
        F             G
All the sailors got a story,
          Am7   C        F       Am7
 Some are true, some are false;
             D      G                   E         A7
 But they're always wrecked and they're up on the deck,

 D           G         C
 dancin' the St John's Waltz.

          C       C6       C     
And we've had our share of history,
            F                C
 We've seen nations come and go;
            Em                Am7
 We've seen battles rage over land and stage,
     D                 G
 Two hundred years and more.
     C     G7     C
 For glory or for freedom,
        F              Am
 Or for country or for King;
        C        Em              Am7
 Or for money or fame, but there are no names,
        D                    G
 On the graves where men lie sleeping.
        F             G
All the nine-to-fives survive the day,
        Am7   C            F    Am7
 With a sigh and a dose of salts;
         D             G        E           A7
 They're parkin' their cars and packin' the bars,
]D                   G              C
 Dancin' the St John's Waltz.

F G Am7 C F Am7 D G E A7 D G C

       C        C6     C     
Oh, my heart is on the highway,
         F                C
 And I'm sold on goin' to sea;
         Em              Am7
 All the planes fill the skyway,
         D                    G
 All the trains run swift and free.
              C       G7      C
 So leave the wayward free to wander,
           F                Am
 Leave the restless free to roam;
            C            Em           Am7
 If there's rocks in the bay, if it's old cliché,
        D                  G
 You'll find your way back home.
          F           G
But don't question or inquire,
             Am7   C             F     Am7
 What's been gained, what's been lost;
      D        G                  E          A7
 In a world of romance don't miss out on the chance,
       D           G         C
 To be dancin' the St John's Waltz.
