Richard Tarkka posted the chord progression for this song a while ago.  Here
are the lyrics & chords together:

Nautical Disaster                             The Tragically Hip


           Am             F            F
I had this dream where I relished the fray 
        F                Am          F        F       F
and the screaming filled my head all day.  
          Am              F                  F
It was as though I'd been spit here, settled in, 
         F           Am            F          F
into the pocket of a lighthouse on some rocky socket, 
        F                      Am       F
off the coast of France, dear.
         F                   F               Am    F
One afternoon, four thousand men died in the water here 
    F            F                   Am       F         F
and five hundred more were thrashing madly as parasites might 
   F            Am       F       F       F
in your blood.  

               Am              F                 F
Now I was in a lifeboat designed for ten and ten only, 
   F                Am                 F
anything that systematic would get you hated. 
     F                F          Am                F      F     F
It's not a deal nor a test nor a love of something fated-(uh).  
              Am                      F          F
The selection was quick, the crew was picked (in order) 
    F                 Am        F              F         F
and those left in the water got kicked off our pantleg 
       Am                   F       F      F
and we headed for home.

Am     F      F     F

         Am                  F                      F
Then the dream ends when the phone rings, you doing alright 
             F              Am
he said it's out there most days and nights, 
    F      F              F
but only a fool would complain.  
   Am  F             F               F
Anyway Susan, if you like, our conversation 
      Am         F           F       F
is as faint as a sound in my memory, 
         Am         F              F          F    Am    F   F   F
as those fingernails scratching on my hull.

Am    F    F    F  (repeat)
