Comments:
This is my second tab. I know there's already a tab for this, but I decided
to make one. This version is basically the same and it goes with this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ve6T_lNnG7Q&feature=related

If you watch the video, Dustin does hammer ons/offs with the Am and F
in the intro and in parts of the song. This is just a simpler way of
playing it. If there's any mistakes let me know. I know this might not
be 100%, but it's close. Please comment and rate.

Intro: Am  F

Am
My lover's arms,
     F
they beg me to stay.
      Am
But I know the storms,
          F
they will sweep me away.


   E
My daughter's eyes,
         F
they are two tiny seas,
      E
whose water will rise
         F
and then run down her cheeks.


Am
"Father where do you go,
   Cmaj9
so far out upon the sea,
F                           C    Em
when are you coming home to me?"
Am
"Darling why do you leave,
       Cmaj9
as the north wind begins to blow?
F                           C    Em
Will you be coming home to me?"


Am, F


Am
The boat and the blade,
         F
they are all that I know;
Am
the sea calls my name,
    Bb-5
and so I must go.
E
And while they still sleep,
  F
I slip out through the door;
    E
but how can I leave,
        F
with my anchors ashore?


Am
"Father where do you go?
     Cmaj9
It's farther than I can see,
F                           C    Em
when are you coming home to me?"
Am
"Darling why do you leave,
       Cmaj9
as the north wind begins to blow?
F                           C    Em
Will you be coming home to me?"

yo. thanks for the tab. i think that C? is actually a variation G. Put your fingers on the third fret of the low e string and the second fret of the a string. sounds right but im not sure

The C? is just a normal G, however, the Dsus doesn't sound quite like a Dsus. I think it's a variation G (possibly Gsus?).

Try this chord out, it sounds 100% correct for me.
