Ship Of Fools:Bob Seger.
Album - Night Moves - #8 in 1976.

INTRO: A#

#1.
A#                              F
Tell me, quick, said Old McFee..what's this all have 
                Cm                D#             A#
to do with me?..I've spent all my time at sea, a loner.
A#                                      F
Is there something else I should know?..something hidden 
                Cm       D#         A#
down below, the level of your conversation?

CHORUS:
         Gm          Cm         F
Well, he turned away before the answer..
         Gm            Cm            F
though I yelled aloud, he refused to hear.
              A#     D# A# 
It became too clear..

#2.
A#                         F
So, it went as we put out..I was left in constant doubt..
Cm           D#                 A#
everything I asked about seemed private.
A#                                         F
The captain strolled the bridge one night..I stopped him 
                      Cm                  D#
in the evening light..to ask him would it be all right to 
A#
join him.

CHORUS:
       Gm          Cm        F
But he stood there like some idol.. 
       Gm       Cm        F
and he listened like some temple..
                    A#  D# A# 
and then he turned away.

#3.
A#                           F
All along the fateful coast..we moved silent, like a ghost.
Cm                  D#            A#
The timeless sea of tireless host possessed us.
A#
The wind came building from the cold northwest.. 
F                                  Cm                 D#
and soon the waves began to crest, crashing cross the forward
          A#
deck..all hands lost.

CHORUS:
  Gm     Cm           F
I alone, survived the sinking..
  Gm     Cm            F
I alone, possessed the tools, on 
             A#    D# A# 
that ship of fools.

OUTRO:
A#            D# A#                A#    D# A# 
Ship of fools......on that ship of fools..
A#                  D# A# 
that ship of fools..



A seventies smash from Kraziekhat.
