Mean Mary - Sierra Leone



[Verse 1]
  C            G             C       G
I found an old letter caught under a stone
       C          G          F            G
By the sea in the lee of the cliffs, all alone
    C          Am            Em           F
Its pages were tattered from where it had blown
   Dm            C         G         C
To land from the hand of a sailor, unknown
F            C          G      C
There by the coast of Sierra Leone


[Verse 2]
                  G             C               G
"Dear Friend", it read, "I have missed you, you know
         C              G              F        G
When you walked and you talked with me so long ago
  C           Am        Em            F
I shoved you aside as I rushed to and fro
Dm             C           G         C   F  C  G  C  Am
Friend, my old friend, who never let go"


[Chorus]
Em             F                          C
Friend, my old friend, who looked out for me
                         F                         G
Through squalls and long hauls, while I sailed the sea
  Am        G        C          F
I need your watchful eye at the prow
            C             Am            C
I know that you know, I’m kneeling here now


[Interlude]

[Verse 3]
   C             G              C              G
My ship hugs the rocks, and the gale’s my back door
C           G            F          G
Lashing and smashing and waging its war
   C            Am               Em        F
My crew man the lifeboat, please see them ashore
    Dm             C         G          C
All told, it won’t hold even one person more
F         C      G           C
Here by Sierra Leone’s rocky floor


[Verse 4]
              G         C                 G
Forgive my neglect, old friend, it was my loss 
  C           G           F              G
I wait for my fate as the ship starts to toss
  C             Am        Em           F
I feel the cold waters, I see the dark moss
       Dm                C          G           C      F  C  G  C  Am
Will I sail through this gale or to heaven on a cross?


[Chorus]
Em             F                          C
Friend, my old friend, who looked out for me
                         F                         G
Through squalls and long hauls, while I sailed the sea
Am            G        C               F
I’ll take the wheel if you’ll ride the bow
              C              Am            C
You know that I know, you’re standing here now


[Interlude]

[Verse 5]
     C            G          C      G
As I stood on the rocks of Sierra Leone
       C             G        F      G
By the sea, the blue sea of Sierra Leone
C            Am             Em         F
Close by the spot where the letter had blown
    Dm          C             G         C
And thought for naught of the sailor, unknown
F            C          G      C
There by the coast of Sierra Leone


[Verse 6]
               G              C        G
Then I saw old letters carved into the stone 
       C             G        F      G
By the sea, the blue sea of Sierra Leone
 C              Am            Em            F
'Thank you, old Friend', just those words, alone 
       Dm           C           G         C
Carved there like a prayer by a sailor, unknown
F           C          G      C
Here on the coast of Sierra Leone
F           C         G         C
Here by the hand of a sailor, unknown
