    Fisherman's Blues

    by The Waterboys
    Intro X2
    [G] [F] [Am] [C]

    I [G] wish I was a fisherman, [F] tumbling on the seas
    Far [Am] away from dry land, and it's [C] bitter memories
    [G] Casting you my sweet light with [F] abandonment and love
    No [Am] ceiling staring down on me, save the [C] starry sky above

    ( Chorus
    With light in my [G] hair,
    you in my [F] arms,
    woo woo ooh [Am]
    [G] [F] [Am] [C] over solo)

    I wish I was the brake man, on a Hartland diesel train
    Crashing headlong into the heartland, like a cannon in the rain
    With the beating of the sleepers, and the burning of the coal
    Counting towns flashing by me, in a night that's full of soul

    [G] [F] [Am] [C] over solo x2

    Oh I know I will be loosened, from bonds that hold me tight
    And the chains all hung around me will fall away at last
    And on that fine and fateful day I will take thee in my arms
    I will ride the night train, and I will be the fisherman

    [G] [F] [Am] [C] repeat to fade
