SHIVER ME TIMBERS          TOM WAITS

A9=002200

G              C/D  
I'm leaving my family
G              Em7 
leaving all my friends
G            A7 
my body's at home
        Am           D7 
but my hearts in the wind
          G               C/D  
where the clouds are like headlines
     G             Em7  
on a new frontpage sky
   G              A7 
my tears are salt water
         Am        D7   G 
and the moons full and high

And I know Martin Eden's
gonna be proud of me
many before me
has been called by the sea
To be up in the crow's nest 
singing my say
Shiver me Timbers
I'm a-sailing away

Chorus:
-------
        Em7      
Now the fog's lifting 
        B7    
and the sand's shifting and
    G           A9
I'm drifting on out
 G
Old captain Ahab
             D7sus4     D7 
he ain't got nothing on me
                 Em7              B7
So come on and swallow me , dont follow me
       G         A9
I'm travelling alone
      G         
Blue waters my daughter
       D7sus4        D7
I'm skippin' like a stone


So please call my missus
tell her not to cry
'cause my goodbye is written
by the moon in the sky
And nobody knows me
I can't fathom my stayin'
shiver me timbers
I'm a-sailing away


Chorus


I'm leaving my family
I'm leaving my friends
my body's at home 
but my hearts in the wind
where the clouds are like headlines
on a new frontpage sky
shiver me timbers
I'm a-sailing ... a...way
