My Old Boat Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords. 4/4

chords fit Johnny McEvoy’s version from his album ‘Never Smelt The Roses’ (use a capo on the 2nd fret)

[G]Out in the harbor at the [C]end of the [G]day

I sit in my boat, watch the [A7]light fade a[D]way

I [C]think of the girls that [G]I used to [Em]know

And the [G]seas that we sailed, t’was a [D7]long time a[G]go



And [C]my old boat, she [G]kept me afloat

Through wind and bad weather we [A7]braved many [D]storms

From the [C]Mexican Gulf to the [G]South China [Em]Seas

We [G]never did [D7]come to no [G]harm


I [G]knew a sea captain – but his [C]name won’t come [G]to me

Sailed a ship off Newport for [A7]Halifax [D]bound

[C] spured up by a whale as [G]big as a [Em]mountain

Neither [G]he nor his [D7crew ever [G]found




Two [G]shipmates I sailed with danced [C]with the same [G]woman

In a bar in the backstreets of [A7]Old Amster[D]dam

Woke [C]up in the morning, blind [G]drunk on the [Em]street

[G]Six months back wages and [D7]dignity [G]gone




I [G]met a young girl on the [C]streets of New [G]Orleans

With eyes bright as diamonds and an [A7] heavenly [D]skin

But I [C]kissed her goodbye 'neat [G]pale creol[Em]moon

When the [G]time came around to go [D7]sailing a[G]gain


Chorus twice
