There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
a simple version of the song, but good enough to strum along with the cd

A			     G		A
Like ships in a squall we rise and we fall
           D				 A
We're plotting our course through the waves
A			    G	     A
Some masts are tall with sails so strong
D			   A
Others are tossed in the gale
A			  G 	       A
We try to stay dry with salt in our eyes
D		            A
No moment to rest or complain
A		         G		       A
The moon isn't far a clear sky and stars
D			    A     
Red sky at morn on your tail

G		   D		G	    A
I'm not going to stand on the end of the pier
G		   D	       A
I'm not going to let you go down with the ship
G		D	   G	          A
Raise up your anchor it's time to set sail
G		           D	   	     A
And I'm not going to let you go               	down

A			          G	         A
Like ships we were made to dance o'er our graves
D				     A
One false move and we could be thrown
A	            G	         A
Buried alive before our due time
D	        	 A
To rest at sixty below
A				  G	    A
So jibe while you can if there's danger ahead
D			        A
Stay on your course if you will
A			G		A
I'll throw you a line as waves start to rise
D			      A
Bail as your ship starts to fill

Great only if you switch the G and D it sounds mucho better. It really does. Haggis Heads must join forces to show the
world real music, but if it doesnt sound like how Trevor plays it then its not that. but really you should change that,
or at least play it my way and see what you think. Thanks!

The last comment was a tad rude, but he was actaully correct. Just saw them a couple nights ago and the g and d chords should be switched during the verse.
