[Refrain 1] (Begins with abrupt, tom-tom thump!]
E        C/G    G          D
I have a drink, I start to sink,
A        C/G        G   C/G
I put my toe in the oce-an.
E        C/G    G          D

Another toe in the oce-an.


[Verse 1]
E           C/G     G        D
Down on the sh-elf, an elf I saw,
A          C/G             G   C/G
I took his picture, he was wav-ing.
E        C/G        G           D
I passed again, and now they're gone,
A          C/G               G   C/G
I think my picture, is worth sav-ing.


[Chorus 1]
D
No more waiting for the new day,
F
You gotta swim sometimes.
G                    A
I'll be here for the rest of my li-fe,
C/G               E
Up in the land of green.
G                  A
Making love in the cool black sand,
C/G                 E
Thinking where I've be-en.

C/G           G        D
Merry making, with the fair-ies,
A          C/G    G      C/G
Going down to the on-ion pat-ch.
G          C/G    G       D
To you and me, to shining sea-s,
A         C/G       G      C/G
I see the lights of Edward That-ch


[Chorus 2]
D
No more waiting for the new day,
F
You gotta swim sometimes.
G                    A
I'll be here for the rest of my li-fe,

Up in the land of green.
G                  A
Making love in the cool black sand,
C/G                 E
Thinking where I've be-en.

NOTES
1.  "Edward Teach or Edward Thatch (c. 1680 – 22 November 1718), better known as Blackbeard, was a 
notorious English pirate who operated around the West Indies and the eastern coast of Britain's 
North American colonies. ...Various superstitious tales exist of Teach's ghost. Unexplained lights 
at sea are often referred to as "Teach's light", and some recitals claim that the notorious pirate 
now roams the afterlife searching for his head, for fear that his friends, and the Devil, will not 
recognise him...."  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blackbeard
