[Verse 1]

C                 G  F       Adim                 C
Went to see the cap  tain    Strangest   I could find
       E         F           Em
Laid my   prop o sition down   
Dm               G                         F             C
Laid it on the line    I won't slave for beg gar's pay  
Em                   Dm
Like wise   gold and jew els    
F                    C                   G           F       C
but I would slave to learn the way    to sink your   ship of fools

                                                                    
[Chorus]

C       G                    F    C
Ship of fools        on a cru  el sea
C       G                   F           Am
Ship of fools        sail a way    from me
Am                               Adim
It was lat er    that I thought when I first believed you
 Adim  Dm                 G         F         C
Now I can not share your laugh ter   ship of fools

                                                                    
[Verse 2]
(same chords as verse 1)

Saw your first ship sink and drown from rocking of the boat;
and all that could not sink or swim was just left there to float.
I won't leave you driftin' down but whoa it makes me wild,
with thirty years upon my head, to have you call me child.

[Chorus]

C       G                    F    C
Ship of fools        on a cru  el sea
C       G                   F           Am
Ship of fools        sail a way    from me
Am                               Adim
It was lat er    that I thought when I first believed you
 Adim  Dm                 G         F         C
Now I can not share your laugh ter   ship of fools

[Verse 3]
(same chords as verse 1)

The bottles stand as empty as they were filled before;
time there was and plenty but from that cup no more.
Though I could not caution all I still might warn a few;
don't lend your hand to raise no flag atop no ship of fools.

[Chorus]

C       G                    F    C
Ship of fools        on a cru  el sea
C       G                   F           Am
Ship of fools        sail a way    from me
Am                               Adim
It was lat er    that I thought when I first believed you
 Adim  Dm                 G         F         C
Now I can not share your laugh ter   ship of fools

(fade)
