SAILOR'S REST   Time: 4/4 (sync)   Tenor: G   Bass: G
- Stan Rogers, 1982, on: Home in Halifax

INTRO:  1,  4,  *,   1


     1        5                1          4                           *
It's acrimony down in the card-room, with winning hands thrown on the baize
    5                        *                    4        5
For-gotten cards wait on the end of debate on the good old days
17                             *        4                   2??
Captains and mates gettin' tes-ty, with memories not of the best
    1                   4                    *       1
And tempers are flyin', down at the Sailor's Rest


1         5           1            4                      *
Blue eyes in wrinkled Mo-rocco, still search the horizon for squalls
    5                          *                          4        5
And Zeroes in the sky, and the watchkeeper's eye, and the pawnshop balls
    17                       *             4                    2??
The spice in the wind off of Java, and the bars in Papeete were best
        1                   4                    *       1
But the deck is too steady, down at the Sailor's Rest


CHORUS ONE:

     5   *           17                          4
And, oh____ how they talked of the day they'd ar-rived
     6m                       4                           2m          5
When after the years, all the storms and the tears, still very much a-live
     5   *            17                            4
And, oh____ how their lives were spilled out on the floor
         6m                        2m
>From the battered old seabags, the journals and logs  /
             6m                      27
     And the keepsakes locked in the chests
          1                    4                    *       1
That were stowed in the attic, down at the Sailor's Rest


   1           5        1                 4                       *
No rail on the messroom table, and you're dead if you spit on the floor
5                *                        4               5
No grog allowed, no singin' too loud, and no locks on the doors
            17                   *                  4                    2??
But there's always a fire in the card room, and the tucker is always the best
            1                4                    *       1
And they'll end it together, down at the Sailor's Rest

CHORUS TWO:

     5   *           17                          4
And, oh____ how they talked of the day they'd ar-rived
     6m                       4                           2m          5
When after the years, all the storms and the tears, still very much a-live
     5   *            17                            4
And, oh____ how their lives were spilled out on the floor
         6m                        2m
>From the battered old seabags, the journals and logs  /
               6m                      27
     / And the keepsakes locked in the chests
          1                    4                    *       1
That were sold at the auction, down at the Sailor's Rest


        1        5                1          4                           *
So it's acrimony down in the card-room, with winning hands thrown on the baize
    5                        *                    4        5
For-gotten cards wait on the end of debate on the good old days
17                             *        4                   2??
Captains and mates gettin' tes-ty, with memories not of the best
            1                 4                    *       1
But they'll end it together', down at the Sailor's Rest

     1        5                1
It's acrimony down in the card-room
