The Lyrics Are By John Masefield, England's Foremost Marine Poet.

lyrics

POSTED Intro E F E D X 2


E DREAM after dream I see the wrecks that lie F. . . . . .
D Unknown of man, unmarked upon the charts, A
E Known of the flat-fish with the withered eye, F. . . . .
D And seen by women in their aching hearts. A

B But no sound penetrates, not even the lunge A
B Of live ships passing, nor the gannet’s plunge. GBFFFF

E World-wide the scattering is of those fair ships F. . . .
D That trod the billow tops till out of sight: A
E The cuttle mumbles them with horny lips, F. . . . .
D The shells of the sea-insects crush them white. A

B But no sound penetrates, not even the lunge A
B Of live ships passing, nor the gannet’s plunge. GBFFFF

E In silence and in dimness and in greenness F. . . . . . .
D Among the indistinct and leathery leaves A
E Of fruitless life they lie among the cleanness. F. . . . .
D Fish glide and flit, slow under-movement heaves; A

B But no sound penetrates, not even the lunge A
B Of live ships passing , nor the gannet’s plunge. GBFFF
