On the wild and wasteful ocean

And the treatment, sure it took some bearing

And I used to sleep standing on my feet

A chord diagramG+G                       A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramD MajorD     A chord diagramG+G
And I'd dream about the shoals of herring

O we left the homegrounds in the month of June

With a hundred cran of silver darlings

A chord diagramG+G                        A chord diagramC majorC         A chord diagramD MajorD     A chord diagramG+G
That we'd taken from the shoals of herring

We were sailing after shoals of herring
