LEARNING TO ROW Lyrics and chords fit the McCalmans’ version from their album ‚Scots Abroad’  (use capo on 3rd fret) Guitar work by Marc Fahrbach, It was written by Stuart Adamson (former Big Country frontman) and Marcus Hummon. It was from their time as a band called "The Raphaels".

D-Bm-G-A7   D-Bm-G-A7-A7

 

I could (G)smell the (Bm)sea on his (G)working (A7)clothes
I’d take (Em)his rough (Bm)hand, I (G)wouldn’t let (A7)go
Son, if (Em)ships don’t (Bm)sail, the (G)table’s (A)bare
And we’re (G)not a(A7)lone out (G)there

Got to (G)grow up (Bm)fast, you’ve (G)got no a (A7)choice
When the (Em)table’s (Bm)bare, and there’s (G)no father’s (A7)voice
Smell his (Em)working (Bm)clothes on the (G)cold night (A)air
And we’re (G)not a(A7)lone out (G)there
No, we’re (Em)not a(A7)lone out (A)there

Chorus
We are (G)cast a(D)drift on an (A)endless (Bm)storm
Many (G)dreams will (D)come and wash (G)over(A)board
But we (G)will not (D)mourn, what we (G)have not (D)lost
We will (G)learn to (A)row with the (A7)oars we’ve (D)got

 

D-Bm-G-A7   D-Bm-G-A7-A7

As the (G)strom goes (Bm)down, the (G)sea re(A7)mains
(Em)Nets re(Bm)turn to the (G)deep a(A7)gain
(Em)Lifting (Bm)life, (G)born to (A)share
And we’re (G)not a(A7)lone out (G)there
No, we’re (Em)not a(A7)lone out (A)there

Chorus

D-Bm-G-A7   D-Bm-G-A7-A7

 

You could (G)smell the (Bm)sea on his (G)working (A7)clothes
I’d take (Em)his rough (Bm)hand, I (G)wouldn’t let (A7)go
Son, if (Em)ships don’t (Bm)sail, the (G)table’s (A)bare
And we’re (G)not a(A7)lone out (G)there

No, we’re (Em)not a(A7)lone out (A)there

 

We are (G)cast a(D)drift on an (A)endless (Bm)storm
Many (G)dreams will (D)come and wash (G)over(A)board
But we (G)will not (D)mourn, what we (G)have not (D)lost
We will (G)learn to (A)row

Chorus

D-Bm-G-A7   D-Bm-G-A7-A7   A7-A7-D-D
