Sad Sailor Song

Chords and lyrics for Sad Sailor Song by Waifs

Sailing to the end of the world
My ship is grand, so tall she stands.

Ahoy land, Ahoy land.

Been drinking up been drinking up

Dancin’ up a storm storm storm

The ocean’s she’s a dancin’ all over us

Man overboard man overboard

Sad sailor song, the devil’s storm

Sad sailor song, the devil’s storm

 
Solo: Play E A x 8 times 

I said my prayers to my mumma

Don’t cry too long, don’t cry for me

The captain and me, my ship and me

The captain and me, my ship and me

 
repeat last line several times and finish on E

Lest We Forget

Chords and lyrics for Lest We Forget by Waifs

Lest We forget

Your deeds as a younger man

Like how when you were nine, you fell in love because

she was the first girl you’d seen throw a cricket ball

You knew that you’d be together for the rest of your lives

Now you sit alone in the sun in the backyard

feeding the birds, reading the newspaper

thinking about the love that you shouldn’t have lost

//: Love that you lost, love that you shouldn’t have://

Love that you lost, love that you shouldn’t have lost

When I was a child I didn’t see her much

She passed away before I was five

I was so young that it barely affected my life

Then one day when I asked you told me she was magnificent

All that I had was your word and her photograph

But one look in your eyes told me all that I needed to know

//: Love that you lost, love that you shouldn’t have://
