Key: Am
verse 1 
Am                 C               G            Am 
In a dozen coastal towns, when the sun is going down 
    C                      Em             Am 
The boats are tied and the fishing is all through 
    Am               C           G             Am 
For another shot-and-beer you'll likely get to hear 
       C               G            Am 
Of the pilot boat they call the CAN DO 

F G C Am Then lift your glass to the seasons as they pass F G F To the men who sail the seas alone F G C Am Say a prayer for the women waiting there Am G Am For the men who never will come home
verse 2 Am C G Am A blizzard from the North blew the tanker off her course C Em Am And the GLOBAL HOPE was grounded on the sand Am C G Am There were forty men they said, then the radio went dead C G Am And no one knew they were just a mile from land
F G C Am Well the CAN DO heard the call, and their boat was very small F G F They wondered how a tanker could get lost F G C Am And like a single silent voice, they knew they had no choice Am G Am But to find the GLOBAL HOPE at any cost
verse 3 Am C G Am Well the snow made them blind and the seas could read their mind C Em Am And the wind laughed at every turn they made Am C G Am 'Til a big one hit the side and flipped her like a dime C G Am And it drove her like a nail into the wave
F G C Am Then lift your glass to the seasons as they pass F G F To the men who sail the seas alone F G C Am Say a prayer for the women waiting there Am G Am For the men who never will come home
verse 4 Am C G Am There's a little boy who plays by the harbor every day C Em Am And his mother cannot hide her tears for long Am C G Am For she knows salt water runs in the blood of sailors' sons C G Am And she knows there's no ending to this song
F G C Am Then lift your glass to the seasons as they pass F G F To the men who sail the seas alone F G C Am Say a prayer for the women waiting there Am G Am For the men who never will come home
Coda F G C Am For they're cruising where it's warm and they'll never see the storm Am G Am And they never, never will come home
