Sailor's Rest - Stan Rogers - Home In Halifax - Chords

Note - I'm not exactly sure how he does the little thing at the beginning of the
chorus, but I played around with my guitar a bit, and what I've got there sounds
pretty good to me :P

     F        G                F          F                           
It's acrimony down in the card-room, with winning hands thrown on the baize
    G                                            F        C7
For-gotten cards wait on the end of debate on the good old days
F                             C7        F                   D7
Captains and mates gettin' tes-ty, with memories not of the best
    F                   F                    F
And tempers are flyin', down at the Sailor's Rest


F         G           F            F                      
Blue eyes in wrinkled Mo-rocco, still search the horizon for squalls
    G                                                    F        C7
And Zeroes in the sky, and the watchkeeper's eye, and the pawnshop balls
    F                       C7             F                    D7
The spice in the wind off of Java, and the bars in Papeete were best
        F                   F                    F
But the deck is too steady, down at the Sailor's Rest


CHORUS

     G-C7-G7sus4     C7                          F
And, oh, how they talked of the day they'd ar-rived
     Dm                       F                           Dm          G
When after the years, all the storms and the tears, still very much a-live
     C7-G7sus4     C7                            F
And, oh, how their lives were spilled out on the floor
         Dm                        Dm
From the battered old seabags, the journals and logs 
         Dm                      D7
And the keepsakes locked in the chests
          F                    F                    F
That were stowed in the attic, down at the Sailor's Rest


   F           G        F                 F                       
No rail on the messroom table, and you're dead if you spit on the floor
G                                          F            C7
No grog allowed, no singin' too loud, and no locks on the doors
            F                    C7                 F                    D7
But there's always a fire in the card room, and the tucker is always the best
            F                F                    F
And they'll end it together, down at the Sailor's Rest

CHORUS

     G-C7-G7sus4  C7                          F
And, oh, how they talked of the day they'd ar-rived
     Dm                       F                           Dm          G
When after the years, all the storms and the tears, still very much a-live
     C7-G7sus4      C7                            F
And, oh, how their lives were spilled out on the floor
         Dm                        Dm
From the battered old seabags, the journals and logs
         Dm                      D7
And the keepsakes locked in the chests
          F                    F                    F
That were sold at the auction, down at the Sailor's Rest


    F           G        F                 F                       
So it's acrimony down in the card-room, with winning hands thrown on the baize
G                                          F            C7
For-gotten cards wait on the end of debate on the good old days
F                           C7          F                   D7
Captains and mates gettin' tes-ty, with memories not of the best
            F                 F                    F
But they'll end it together', down at the Sailor's Rest


     F        G                F
It's acrimony down in the card-room
