SIm      FA#m   LA       MI7     SIm      
Sweet surrender on the quay side
SIm     FA#m    LA        MI7        SIm
You remember we used to run and hide
        SIm                  FA#m                          
In the shadows of cargoes, I take you on time, 
LA                     MI 
Counting all the numbers 
                  SIm
Down to the waterline

SIm     FA#m   LA       MI7     SIm  
Near misses on the dogleap stairways
SIm     FA#m    LA        MI7     SIm
French kisses in the darkened doorways
        SIm            FA#m
Foghorn blowing out wild and cold
     LA               MI                     SIm
A policeman shines a light upon my shoulder

SIm         FA#m    LA        MI7        SIm
Up comes a coaster, fast and silent through the night
SIm         FA#m   LA         MI7       SIm
Over my shoulder, all you can see are pilot lights
    SIm                      FA#m
No money in our jackets and jeans are torn
      LA                    MI                SIm
Your hands are cold but your lips are warm

        SIm            FA#m             LA       MI7   SIm
She can see you in the jetty where you used to go
        SIm            FA#m             LA       MI7   SIm
She can see you in the places where the sailors go
     SIm                                  FA#m
When she's walking down the river on the railway line
         LA
She can still hear you whisper
          MI                 SIm
Lets go down to the water line

...come on!
