My father was a fisherman  my mama was a fisherman's friend  And
G                  A              D
I was born in the boredom and the chowder              So
C                  G             C             G
when I reached my prime  I left my home in the maritimes
C                G                D
headed down the turnpike for New England

Em                                 D
A young girl in a parking lot was preachin to a crowd  singin.

sacred songs and reading from the bible   Well I

Just latter on the very same night when I
D                                          G           A
crept to her tent with a flashlight and my long years of innocence
D                 C              G
ended    Well she took me to the woods sayin'
C                            G                    C          G
"Here comes somethin' and it feels so good!" And just like a dog I was
D                       Em
befriended   I was befriended

Em                   D
Oh  oh  what a night Oh what a garden of delight
      G            A       D
Even now that sweet memory lingers
C             G            C               G
playin' my guitar   lying underneath the stars  Just
C            G           D                 Em
thankin' the lord for my fingers    for my fingers

fade out :
