G C G Am D7 G
Mother, Mother Ocean, I have heard you call
C                                                      G
I’ve wanted to sail upon your waters since I was three feet tall
                    Am    D7
‘Cuz you’ve seen it all,
You’ve seen it all

Watch the men who rode you
Switch from sails to steam
And in your belly you hold the treasures
Few have ever seen
Most of them are dreams
Yes most of them are dreams

Yes, I am a pirate a few hundred years too late
Cannons don't thunder there's nothin' to plunder
I'm an under forty victim of fate
Arriving too late, arriving too late

But I've done a bit of smugglin'
I've run my share of grass
Made enough money to buy Miami
But I pissed it away so fast
It's never meant to last
It's never meant to last

I have been drunk now for over two weeks
Passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks
But I've got to stop wishin', got to go fishin'
I'm down to rock bottom again.
Just a few friends
Just a few friends

Repeat last two lines
