Verse 1- this is the format for all the verses

D5          C5
Everybody, listen to me
D5              C5
And return me, my ship
D5                 C5
I'm your captain, I'm your captain
D5                    C5
Although I'm feeling, mighty sick


I've been lost now, days uncounted
And it's been months since, I've seen home
Can you hear me, can you hear me
Or am I, all alone


If you return me, to my home port
I will kiss you, mother earth
Take me back now, take me back now
To the port, of my birth


D5            Bb5           D5            Bb5
Am i in my cabin dreaming, or are you really scheming
D5         Bb5              F5     A5     A5
To take my ship away from me
D5             Bb5           D5               Bb5
You'd better think about it, I just can't live without it
D5              Bb5                      F5    A5    A5
So please don't take my ship away from me

Go back to playing the verse riff a few times, then into verses 4 and 5


I can feel the hand, of a stranger
And it's tightening, round my throat
Heaven help me, heaven help me
Take this stranger, from my boat


I'm your captain, I'm your captain
Although i'm feeling, mighty sick
Everybody, listen to me
And return me, my ship


I'm your captain, yea yea yea yea (x4)

then play the outro till the end. the outro is very slow and not at all like the verses.

D5                        C5
I'm getting closer to my home (repeat till end)

This is a great tune, enjoy, and ask for more.
