--
Capo III
Verse: C G Em F F C G Am (twice)
Chorus: F Em Bb Am
Intro: you're on your own !
And the ship sets the sail
They've lived the tale
To carry to the shore
Screaming at the oars
Or staring from the rail
And the sea bids farewell
She waves and swells
And sends them on their way
Time has been her pay
And time will have to tell
Chorus:
Oh soon your sailing will be over
Come and take the pleasures of the harbor
And the anchor hits the sand
The hungry hands
Have tied them to the port
The hour will be short
For leisure on the land
And the girls scent the air
They seem so fair
With paint upon their face
Soft as their embrace
To lead them up the stairs
Chorus: Oh soon ...
Verse:
In the room dark and dim
Touch of skin
He asks her of her name
She answers with no shame
And not a sense of sin
'til the fingers draw the blind
Sip of wine
The cigarette of doubt
The candle is blown out
The darkness is so kind
Chorus: Oh soon ...
And the shadows claim the light
Same old sight
Thrill has flown away
Oh, all alone they lay
Two strangers in the night
'til his heart skips a beat
He's on his feet
To shipmates he must join
She's counting up the coin
He's swallowed by the street
Chorus: Oh soon ...
In the bar hanfs a cloud
The whiskey's loud
There's laughter in their eyes
The lonely in disguise
Are clinging to the crowd
And the bottle fills the glass
The haze is fast
He's trembling for the taste
Of passion gone to waste
In memories of the past
Chorus: Oh soon ...
In the alley red with rain
Cry of pain
For love was but a smile
Teasing all the while
Now dancing down the drain
'til the boys reach the dock
They gently mock
And lift him on their backs
And lay him on his rack
And leave beneath the lock
Chorus: Oh soon ...
Repeat first verse
