Captain Kennedy.
Neil Young.
Album: Hitchhiker.
Capo 3.

Intro: Dm C 	 Dm F C D F Dm C 	 D

Dm                   C         Dm
I am a young mariner headed to war, 
Dm                 C  Dm         D           Dm
I'm thinkin' 'bout my family and what it was for, 
Dm                   F6           F          Dm
There's water on the wood and the sails feel good, 
Dm                                  C          D   Dm D
And when I get to shore I hope that I can kill good. 

   Dm                        C            D
My father was a sailor named Captain Kennedy,
                   F6                             D
He lost his wooden schooner to the Germans on the sea, 
F6                                    D
Exploded on the water for everyone to see,
                   G    Dm  C            D C D
And humiliate that American Captain Kennedy. 

  Dm                   C   Dm
I saw him in Nassau in 1971, 
                                      F     D
His strength was failing but he still ran a run, 
                   F                   Dm
He worked 'til his fingers wore to the bone, 
            C6     D            C           D
To buy that wooden schooner and sail on his own. 

D                              C            D
He was known in the islands as hundred foot iron, 
                              F            Dm
That steel hull freighter was passing it's time, 
                    G        F           D
And time flew by faster with life on the sea, 
             Dm               C            D
And the days grew shorter for Captain Kennedy. 

  Dm                 C         D
I am a young mariner headed to war, 
    Dm                C   Dm     F           Dm
I'm thinking 'bout my family and what it was for, 
                     F6           F          D
There's water on the wood and the sails feel good, 
                  G7   Dm             C        D
And when I get to shore I hope that I can kill good.
