Mother, Mother Ocean, I have heard you call


Wanted to sail upon your waters

Am Bm Am C G

Since I was three feet tall

G Am Bm Am C G

You've seen it all

Bm Am C G

You've seen it all

Watched the men who rode you, Switch from sail to steam

And in your belly you hold the treasure

That few have ever seen

Most of them dream, Most of us dream

Yes, I am a pirate, Two hundred years too late

Cannons don't thunder, there's nothin' to plunder

I'm an over forty victim of fate

Arriving too late, arriving too late

I've done a bit of smugglin', I've run my share of grass

I made enough money to buy Miami

But I pissed it away so fast

Never meant to last, Never meant to last

I have been drunk now, For over two weeks,

I passed out and I rallied

And I sprung a few leaks, but I've got stop wishin'

Got to go fishin' - I'm down to rock bottom again

Just a few friends, Where are my friends

==>> I've included the walkups and walk downs from the Am.

Pick the bass line against the "traveler" on the first,

Just like Peter Mayer (Jimmy's lead player.)
