  Intro: | Em  A |  X2

         D            G         D
  Oh me name's Abel Rogers,a share-man am I,
         G             D            Em         A
  on a three-masted schooner from Twillingate Isle
        G              A           D             A     
  I've been the world over,north south east and west,
           G          D             Em         A
  but the middle of nowhere's where I likes it best


              G         D   G        D
  where it's wave over wave,sea over bow
          G       D         Em        A
  I'm as happy a man as the sea will allow
          G         D           G         D
  there's no other life for a sailor like me,
         G              D            Em        A
  but to sail the salt sea, boys, to sail the sea
          G                     A            D
  there's no other life but to sail the salt sea

   D A  X2
  well,I leave my wife lonely ten months of the year
  for she built me a home and raised my children dear
  she never come out to bid farewell to me
  or ken why a sailor must sail the salt sea


  Ah,The work it is hard and the hours are long,
  but my spirit is willing,my back it is strong,
  and when the work's over the whiskey will pour
  We'll dance with the girls upon some foreign shore

  Em A X4

  I've sailed the world over,four decades or more
  and oft times I wonder what I do it for
  I don't know the answer it's pleasure and pain
  but with life to live over I'd do it again

  Chorus X2
