Shiver Me Timbers (T.Waits)
-----------------
Gb Cb/Db
I'm leaving my family
Gb Ebm7
leaving all my friends
Gb Ab7
my body's at home
Abm9/Gb Db7
but my hearts in the wind
Gb Cb/Db
where the clouds are like headlines
Gb Ebm7
on a new frontpage sky
Gb Ab7
my tears are salt water
Abm9/Gb Db7 Gb
and the moons full and high

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


----- Ebm7
/Now the fog's lifting
D7/Bb
and the sand's shifting
Gb/Cb Ab9
I'm drifting on out

Old captain Ahab
Db7sus4 Db7
he ain't got nothing on me

{repeat chords as above}

So swallow me , follow me
I'm travelling alone
Blue waters my daughter
I'm gonna skip like a stone
---------


so please call my misses
tell her not to cry
'cause my googbye is written
by the moon in the sky
Nobody knows me
I can't fathom my stayin'
shiver me timbers
as I'm sailing away

------
/Now the fogs liftin'......


------

I'm leaving my family
leaving all 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
as I'm sailing goodbye........
