Verse 1:
G                                             Em              C 
Now it's just my luck to have the watch, with nothing left to do
    Bm                                Em                    D 
But watch the deadly waters glide, as we roll North to the 'Sault' (pronounced Soo)
    G                                   Em              C 
And wonder when they'll turn again, and pitch us to the rail
    Bm                 D                G 
And whirl off one more youngster in the gale


Verse 2:
G                                   Em             C
The kid was so damned eager, it was all so big and new
    Bm                              Em               D
You never had to tell him twice, or find him work to do
    G                                 Em              C
And evenings on the mess deck, he was always first to sing
    Bm                      D                G
And show us pictures of the girl he'd wed in spring


Chorus:
D                     D7                   C                  G 
But I told that kid a hundred times, don't take the lakes for granted
C                         Bm                Em             D 
They'll go from calm to a hundred knots, so fast they seem enchanted
G                                            Em             C 
But tonight some red-eyed Wiarton girl, lies staring at the wall
        Bm              D          G 
And her lover's gone in to a white squall


Verse 3:
G                                              Em            C
Now it's a thing that us old timers know, in a sultry summer calm
      Bm                                Em              D
There comes a blow from nowhere, and it goes off like a bomb
      G                              Em              C
And a fifteen thousand tonner can be thrown upon her beam
          Bm               D              G
While the gale takes all before it with a scream


Verse 4:
G                                 Em             C
The kid was on the hatches, lying staring at the sky
     Bm                                Em                  D
From where I stood I swore I could see tears fall from his eyes
     G                                     Em             C
So I hadn't the heart to tell him, that he should be on a line
Bm        D                 G
Even on a night so warm and fine


Chorus:
D                     D7                   C                  G 
But I told that kid a hundred times, don't take the lakes for granted
C                         Bm                Em             D 
They'll go from calm to a hundred knots, so fast they seem enchanted
G                                            Em             C 
But tonight some red-eyed Wiarton girl, lies staring at the wall
        Bm              D          G 
And her lover's gone in to a white squall


Verse 5:
G                                         Em                C
When it struck, he sat up with a start, I roared to him get down
        Bm                                 Em              D
But for all that he could hear, I could as well not made a sound
     G                                   Em                C
So I clung there to the stanchions and I felt my face grow pale
      Bm                D              G
As he crawled hand over hand along the rail


Verse 6:
G                                          Em          C
Now I could feel her heeling over with the fury of the blow
      Bm                                 Em           D
And I watched the rail go under then, so terrible and slow
G                                              Em             C
Then like some great dog she shook herself and roared upright again
    Bm          D                 G
Far over side I heard him call my name


Chorus:
D                     D7                   C                  G
But I told that kid a hundred times, don't take the lakes for granted
C                         Bm                Em             D 
They'll go from calm to a hundred knots, so fast they seem enchanted
G                                            Em             C 
But tonight some red-eyed Wiarton girl, lies staring at the wall
        Bm              D          G 
And her lover's gone in to a white squall


Verse 7:
G                                            Em              C 
So it's just my luck to have the watch, with nothing left to do
    Bm                                Em                    D 
But watch the deadly waters glide, as we roll North to the 'Soo'
    G                                   Em              C 
And wonder when they'll turn again, and pitch us to the rail
    Bm                 D                G 
And whirl off one more youngster in the gale


Chorus:
D                     D7                   C                  G
But I tell that kid a hundred times, don't take the lakes for granted
C                         Bm                Em             D 
They'll go from calm to a hundred knots, so fast they seem enchanted
G                                            Em             C 
But tonight some red-eyed Wiarton girl, lies staring at the wall
        Bm              D          G 
And her lover's gone in to a white squall
