VERSE
G
Mother, mother ocean, I have heard you call 
C
wanted to sail upon your waters
                       G
since I was three feet tall
               Am    D7               G
You've seen it all      You've seen it all
 
 
VERSE
G
 I've watched the men who rode you  Switch from sails to steam
    C
And in your belly you hold the treasures
              G
Few have ever seen 
                 Am     D7                      G
Most of them are dreams    Yes most of them are dreams
 
 
VERSE
G
 Yes, I am a pirate a few hundred years too late
    C
The cannons don't thunder there's nothing to plunder
                             G
I'm an under forty victim of fate
             Am     D7               G
Arriving too late,      arriving too late
 
 
VERSE
G
 I‘ve done a bit of smugglin' well I've run my share of grass
  C
I made enough money to buy Miami
                        G
But I pissed it away so fast
                     Am   D7                     G
It's never meant to last     It's never meant to last
 
 
VERSE
     G
Well I have been drunk now for over two weeks
 
I passed out and I rallied and I sprung a few leaks
         C
But I've got to stop wishin', got to go fishin'
                      G
down to rock bottom again
           Am       D7            G
Just a few friends     Just a few friends
           Am       D7            G
Just a few friends     Just a few friends
