These chords are better:

Cape St. Mary’s (aka Western Boat) Otto P. Kelland

Take me (G)back to (G/F#)my western boat,(Em)
Let me (G)fish off (A7)Cape St. (D)Mary's, (hold)
Where the (G)hagdowns sail
And the (G/F#)foghorns (Em)wail,
With my (G)friends, the (C)Browns and the (D)Clea(G)rys,
Let me (C)fish off (Am)Cape St. (D)Mary's. (hold)

Let me (G)feel (G/F#)my dory lift(Em)
To the (G)broad At(A7)lantic (D)combers,
Where the (G)tide rips swirl
And the (G/F#)wild ducks (Em)whirl,
And Old (G)Neptune (C)calls the (D)num(G)bers, (hold)
'Neath the (C)wild At(Am)lantic (D)combers. (hold)

Let me (G)sail (G/F#)up Golden (Em)Bay,
With my (G)oilskins (A7)all a-(D)streamin'
From the (G)thunder squalls
When I (G/F#)hauled my (Em)trawl,
And my (G)old Cape (C)Ann a-(D)glea(G)min', (hold)
With my (C)oilskins (Am)all a-(D)streamin'. (hold)

And let me (G)view (G/F#)that rugged (Em)shore,
With the (G)beaches (A7)all a-(D)glisten,
With the (G)caplin spawn,
Where from (G/F#)dusk till (Em)dawn (hold)
You (G)bait your (C)(hold)trawl, and you (D)li(G)sten (hold)
To the (C)under(Am)tow(hold) a-(D)hissin'. (hold)

And when I (G)reach that (G/F#)last big (Em)shoal,
Where the (G)groundswells (A7)break a(D)sunder,
Where the (G)wild sands roll
To the (G/F#)surge's (Em)toll,
Let me (G)be a (C)man and (D)take (G)it, (hold)
When my (C)dory (Am)fails to (D)make it. (hold)

Oh, take me (G)back to that (G/F#)snug green (Em)cove,
Where the (G)seas roll (A7)up their (D)thunder,
There (G)let me rest, in the (G/F#)Earth's cool (Em)breast,
Where the (G)stars shine (C)out their (D)won(G)der, (hold)
And the (C)seas roll (Am)up their (D)thunder.

I have no idea which version the chords above are from - can not be the 'For The Family' version...
