Great Big Sea - Wave Over Wave

Printable Version


From "Up" (1995)
(Jim Payne)

Tab By: Barry O'Brien

INTRO:  [G]   [C]   [G]   [C]

My [G]name Able [C]Rodgers, a [Em]shareman am [G]I
On a [C]three masted [G]schooner from [Am]Twillingate [D]Isle
I've [C]been the world [G]over, north, south, east and [C]west
But the [G]middle of nowhere's where I [Am]like's it [D]best

CHORUS #1:
Where it's [C]wave over [G]wave, [C]sea over [G]bow
I'm as [C]happy a [G]man as the [Am]sea will al[D]low
There's [C]no other [G]life for a [C]sailor like [G]me
Then to [C]sail the salt [G]sea boys, to [Am]sail the [D]sea
There's [C]no other life but to [D]sail the salt [G]sea

INTRO

Well I [G]leave my wife [C]lonely ten [Em]months of the [G]year
For she [C]built me a [G]home and raised [Am]my children [D]there
She [C]never comes [G]out to bid farewell to [C]me
Or [G]ken why a sailor must [Am]sail the salt [D]sea

CHORUS #1

INTRO

Ah the [G]work is [C]hard and the [Em]hours are [G]long
But my [C]spirit is [G]willing my [Am]back it is [D]strong
And [C]when the works [G]over the whisky will [C]pour
We'll [G]dance with the girls upon [Am]some foreign [D]shore

INTRO (x2)

I've [G]sailed the world [C]over for [Em]decades or [G]more
And [C]oft times I [G]wondered what [Am]I do it [D]for
I [C]don't know the [G]answer it's pleasure and [C]pain
But with [G]life to live over I'd [Am]do it a[D]gain

CHORUS #2:
Where it's [C]wave over [G]wave, [C]sea over [G]bow
I'm as [C]happy a [G]man as the [Am]sea will al[D]low
There's [C]no other [G]life for a [C]sailor like [G]me
Then to [C]sail the salt [G]sea boys, to [Am]sail the [D]sea

CHORUS #1
