Sailors Rest Chords

   
Sailor's Rest - Stan Rogers - Home In Halifax - Chords

Note - I'm not exactly sure how he does the little thing at the beginning of the
chorus, but I played around with my guitar a bit, and what I've got there sounds
pretty good to me :P

     G        D                G          C                           
It's acrimony down in the card-room, with winning hands thrown on the baize
    D                                            C        D7
For-gotten cards wait on the end of debate on the good old days
G                             G7        C                   A7
Captains and mates gettin' tes-ty, with memories not of the best
    G                   C                    G
And tempers are flyin', down at the Sailor's Rest


G         D           G            C                      
Blue eyes in wrinkled Mo-rocco, still search the horizon for squalls
    D                                                    C        D7
And Zeroes in the sky, and the watchkeeper's eye, and the pawnshop balls
    G                       G7             C                    A7
The spice in the wind off of Java, and the bars in Papeete were best
        G                   C                    G
But the deck is too steady, down at the Sailor's Rest


CHORUS
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/stan_rogers/sailors_rest_crd_ver_2.html ]
     D-D7-D7sus4     G7                          C
And, oh, how they talked of the day they'd ar-rived
     Em                       C                           Am          D
When after the years, all the storms and the tears, still very much a-live
     D7-D7sus4     G7                            C
And, oh, how their lives were spilled out on the floor
         Em                        Am
From the battered old seabags, the journals and logs 
         Em                      A7
And the keepsakes locked in the chests
          G                    C                    G
That were stowed in the attic, down at the Sailor's Rest


   G           D        G                 C                       
No rail on the messroom table, and you're dead if you spit on the floor
D                                          C            D7
No grog allowed, no singin' too loud, and no locks on the doors
            G                    G7                 C                    A7
But there's always a fire in the card room, and the tucker is always the best
            G                C                    G
And they'll end it together, down at the Sailor's Rest

CHORUS

     D-D7-D7sus4  G7                          C
And, oh, how they talked of the day they'd ar-rived
     Em                       C                           Am          D
When after the years, all the storms and the tears, still very much a-live
     D7-D7sus4      G7                            C
And, oh, how their lives were spilled out on the floor
         Em                        Am
From the battered old seabags, the journals and logs
         Em                      A7
And the keepsakes locked in the chests
          G                    C                    G
That were sold at the auction, down at the Sailor's Rest


    G           D        G                 C                       
So it's acrimony down in the card-room, with winning hands thrown on the baize
D                                          C            D7
For-gotten cards wait on the end of debate on the good old days
G                           G7          C                   A7
Captains and mates gettin' tes-ty, with memories not of the best
            G                 C                    G
But they'll end it together', down at the Sailor's Rest


     G        D                G
It's acrimony down in the card-room
