The Story Of Benjamin Darling, pt. 1

Verse 1:
C#m                                       
On a brig loaded with timber headed for the north Maine coast,
                    G#m
They took on some rough seas.
C#m
The captain and his slave fought back the heavy waves,
                     G#m               A        E        B
But they were threatening to break her up so badly.

C#m
See two days before they left the outer banks, 
                            G#m
And made good time up to Boston.
C#m
But just north of Essex the sky grew dark, 
                             G#m
He missed his mark he was making, 
       B                  E
And life can change so fast.

Chorus:
      B                      A
The captain had seen many a day, 
      B                              A
When the winds blew and the waters raged. 
      B                                A
But it was just a part of the life he made for himself, 
      A                       E
Running the coast of New England.

Verse 2:
      C#m
The ship heaved and cracked, 
                                                 G#m
Threw the men on their backs as the water came rushing in. 
       C#m
The captain fought hard yet.
                                                       G#m
He yelled above the splintering wreck, I have done you wrong son. 
A                     E               B
I should be forsaken for what I have done.

Bridge:
A                                 C#m
But Ben reached a timber to stay afloat.
A                                C#m 
He grabbed the captain's braided coat.
A 
He swam him to the nearest shore.
A
Dragged him up 'til he couldn't pull no more, 
A                               C#m         B   E
And left him breathin', yeah left him breathin' dry.
Chorus:
B                    A
The captain said in all my days, 
B                          A            B                   A
I have never seen anybody save the very person who kept him enslaved. 
A                                      E 
God damn it Ben, you should have your freedom 
                    B               
For what you have done.  

Verse 3:
C#m   G#m      C#m    G#m
Heyyyyy         Heyyyyy
       A          E                      B
And I should be forsaken for what I have done.

C#m
Somewhere off the Maine coast, 
                                                  G#m
At the mouth of the New Meadows River there's an island, 
              C#m                                                      
Where a marooned man lived out his life quietly under tied and sky. 
              G#m           B            E
Never forgetting when the sea rose up so high.

Chorus:
B                            A
The captain said in all my days, 
              B            A             B                    A  
I have never seen anybody save the very person who kept him enslaved. 
A                                        E 
God damn it Ben, you should have your freedom 
                       B               
For what you have done.
