Ship Of Fools:Bob Seger. Album - Night Moves - #8 in 1976. INTRO: Bb #1. Bb F Tell me, quick, said Old McFee..what's this all have Cm Eb Bb to do with me?..I've spent all my time at sea, a loner. Bb F Is there something else I should know?..something hidden Cm Eb Bb down below, the level of your conversation? CHORUS: Gm Cm F Well, he turned away before the answer.. Gm Cm F though I yelled aloud, he refused to hear. Bb Eb Bb It became too clear.. #2. Bb F So, it went as we put out..I was left in constant doubt.. Cm Eb Bb everything I asked about seemed private. Bb F The captain strolled the bridge one night..I stopped him Cm Eb in the evening light..to ask him would it be all right to Bb join him. CHORUS: Gm Cm F But he stood there like some idol.. Gm Cm F and he listened like some temple.. Bb Eb Bb and then he turned away. #3. Bb F All along the fateful coast..we moved silent, like a ghost. Cm Eb Bb The timeless sea of tireless host possessed us. Bb The wind came building from the cold northwest.. F Cm Eb and soon the waves began to crest, crashing cross the forward Bb deck..all hands lost. CHORUS: Gm Cm F I alone, survived the sinking.. Gm Cm F I alone, possessed the tools, on Bb Eb Bb that ship of fools. OUTRO: Bb Eb Bb Bb Eb Bb Ship of fools......on that ship of fools.. Bb Eb Bb that ship of fools.. A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
