Intro Chords (verse)
Just to [G] wake up in the [D] morning,
To the [Em] quiet of the [C] cove
And to [G] hear Aunt Bessie [D] talking to her [G] self
And to [G] hear poor Uncle [D] John, mumbling [Em] wishes to old [C] Nell
It [G] made me feel like [D] everything was [G] fine.
I was [D] born down by the [Em] water,It’s [C] here I’m gonna [G] stay;
I’ve [D] searched for all the [Em] reasons, why [C] I should go a [G] way,
But, I haven’t got the [D] thirst for all those [Em] modern-day [C] toys,
So, [G] I’ll just take my chances with those [D] salt-water [G] joys.
Following the little brook, as it trickles to the shore
In the autumn, when the trees are flaming red
Kicking leaves that fall around me
Watching sunsets paint the hills
That’s all I’ll ever need to feel at home
This island that we cling to, has been handed down with pride
By folks, who fought to live here, taking hardships all in stride
So, I compliment your beauty, hold on to my goodbyes
And I’ll stay and take my chances with those salt-water joys.
Verse 3 (violin solo)
How can I leave those mornings, with the sunrise on the cove?
And the gulls like flies surrounding Clayton’s wharf
Platter’s Island wrapped in rainbow, in the evening after fog
The ocean smells are perfume to my soul
Some go to where the buildings, reach to meet the clouds
A warm and gentle people, turn to swarmin’ faceless crowds
So I do without their riches, glamour and the noise,
And I’ll stay and take my chances with those salt-water joys
[REPEAT CHORUS 3]
Verse 5 (violin solo)
