Song Author Tom Waits Lyrics by: Tom Waits Performer: Tom Waits Submitted by: MagS
[F#]    [B/C#]    [F#]    [Ebm7]    [F#]    [G#m]    [C#7]    [F#]    
I'm [F#]leaving my [B/C#]family     
I'm [F#]leaving all my [Ebm7]friends
my [F#]body's at [G#7]home    
but my [G#m9]heart's in the [C#7]wind    
where the [F#]clouds are like [B/C#]headlines
on a [F#]new frontpage [Ebm7]sky     
my [F#]tears are salt[G#7]water    
and the [G#m9]moons full [C#7]and     [F#]high [B/C#]    [F#]    

And I [F#]know Martin [B/C#]Eden's     
gonna [F#]be proud of [Ebm7]me     
[F#]many be[G#7]fore me
has been [G#m9]called by the [C#7]sea    
To be [F#]up in the [B/C#]crow's nest
[F#]singing my [Ebm7]say     
[F#]Shiver me [G#7]Timbers
I'm a-[G#m9]sailing [C#7]a    [F#]way [B/C#]    [F#]    

[Ebm7]Fog's lifting
and the [F#maj7+5/D]sand's shifting and
[F#/C#]I'm drifting on [G#9]out    
That [F#]old captain Ahab
he ain't got [C#7sus4]nothing on [C#7]me    
So come on and [Ebm7]swallow me , dont [F#maj7+5/D]follow me           
I [F#]travel a[G#9]lone    
Blue [F#]waters my daughter
I'm [C#7sus4]skippin' like a [C#7]stone    

[F#]    [B/C#]    [F#]    [Ebm7]    [F#]    [G#m]    [C#7]    [F#]    
So [F#]please call my [B/C#]misses     
[F#]tell her not to [Ebm7]cry     
'cause my [F#]goodbye is [G#7]written
by the [G#m9]moon in the [C#7]sky    
And [F#]nobody [B/C#]knows me
I can't [F#]fathom my [Ebm7]stayin'
[F#]Shiver me [G#7]Timbers
I'm a-[G#m9]sailing [C#7]a    [F#]way [B/C#]    [F#]    

And the [Ebm7]fog's lifting
and the [F#maj7+5/D]sand's shifting and
[F#/C#]I'm drifting on [G#9]out    
That [F#]old captain Ahab
he ain't got [C#7sus4]nothing on [C#7]me    
So come on and [Ebm7]swallow me , dont [F#maj7+5/D]follow me           
I [F#]travel a[G#9]lone    
Blue [F#]waters my daughter
I'm [C#7sus4]skippin' like a [C#7]stone    

I'm [F#]leaving my [C/D]family
I'm [F#]leaving my [Ebm7]friends
my [F#]body's at [G#7]home    
but my [G#m9]heart's in the [C#7]wind    
where the [F#]clouds are like [B/C#]headlines
on a [F#]new frontpage [Ebm7]sky     
[F#]Shiver me [G#7]Timbers
I'm a-[G#m9]sailing [C#7]a    [F#]way   

[F#]    [B/C#]    [F#]    [Ebm7]    [F#]    [G#m]    [C#7]    [F#]    


I'm leaving my family
I'm leaving all my friends
my body's at home
but my heart's in the wind
where the clouds are like headlines
on a new frontpage sky
my tears are saltwater
and the moons full and high

And I know Martin Eden's
gonna be proud of me
many before me
has been called by the sea
To be up in the crow's nest
singing my say
Shiver me Timbers
I'm a-sailing away

Fog's lifting
and the sand's shifting and
I'm drifting on out
That old captain Ahab
he ain't got nothing on me
So come on and swallow me , dont follow me
I travel alone
Blue waters my daughter
I'm skippin' like a stone


So please call my misses
tell her not to cry
'cause my goodbye is written
by the moon in the sky
And nobody knows me
I can't fathom my stayin'
Shiver me Timbers
I'm a-sailing away

And the fog's lifting
and the sand's shifting and
I'm drifting on out
That old captain Ahab
he ain't got nothing on me
So come on and swallow me , dont follow me
I travel alone
Blue waters my daughter
I'm skippin' like a stone

I'm leaving my family
I'm leaving my friends
my body's at home
but my heart's in the wind
where the clouds are like headlines
on a new frontpage sky
Shiver me Timbers
I'm a-sailing away
