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?

         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..

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 
join him.

       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.

Bb                           F
All along the fateful coast..we moved silent, like a ghost.
Cm                  Eb            Bb
The timeless sea of tireless host possessed us.
The wind came building from the cold northwest.. 
F                                  Cm                 Eb
and soon the waves began to crest, crashing cross the forward
deck..all hands lost.

  Gm     Cm           F
I alone, survived the sinking..
  Gm     Cm            F
I alone, possessed the tools, on 
             Bb    Eb Bb 
that ship of fools.

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.
