Fishermans Blues                  

Intro: G F Am C

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


Chorus:
                         G                      F                      Em
With light in my hair, you in my arms, woo woo woo


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

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

Sorry Bounty Hound, but the chords above are not correct.

The Chorus has no E minor.

It has exactly the same chords as the verses.

You may play it with an E minor if you choose, and long may you continue to play music your way, but the inclusion of the E minor is, I am afraid, only your personal interpretation of the song.

correction - they are exactly the same except that the last 4 beats of the bar are chopped off.

So the C is chopped off

So the chorus is G, F, Am

Well spotted Lox, you are absolutely correct, I do in fact play Am, typing error! so the correct chorus is

Chorus:
                         G                      F                      Am
With light in my hair, you in my arms, woo woo woo

Then of course it rolls round to the instrumental, which is the same chords as the verse.

John
