VERSE
Dm             Em/D  
 Oh, come away from the day, here I stay
F/D           Em/D         | Dm Em/D | F/D Em/D |
Living on the bottom of the sea
Dm                 Em/D  
 Down metal snake, corridors, steely gray
F/D             Em/D     | Dm Em/D | F/D Em/D |
Engines hum for nobody but me


BRIDGE
Gm              Am
 No sound comes from the sea above me
Bb           C                         | F G | Bb A |
 No messages crackles through the radio leads


CHORUS
Dm                   Em/D  
 They'll never know, never, no, never
    F/D                  Em/D     [ Dm ]
How strange life in dark water can be


INTERLUDE
| Dm Bb/D | Dm6 Bb/D |

VERSE
Dm             Em/D  
 Oh, mariners spare a thought when you pass
F/D                Em/D    | Dm Em/D | F/D Em/D |
Those who live the submarine life
Dm               Em/D  
 Far in the deep sonar eyes never sleep
F/D           Em/D         | Dm Em/D | F/D Em/D |
Hiding like a shadow in the night


BRIDGE
Gm               Am
 Jet planes nose through the clouds above me
Bb             C                    | F G | Bb A |
 They look for radar traces of me to see


CHORUS
Dm                   Em/D  
 They'll never know, never, no, never
    F/D                  Em/D     [ Dm ]
How strange life in dark water can be


INTERLUDE
| Dm Bb/D | Dm6 Bb/D |


MIDDLE 8
Gm
 Wonder what the stars look like
       F
Coming out tonight
Gm                C
 Tell my girl she must be strong
F                   Dm                   [ Gm ]
 She sits and waits all night long, yeah, yeah
Gm                  Am
 Just looking for a better day
Gm                    Am           [ Dm ]
 She'll have to find another way to go

VERSE
Dm          Em/D  
 No memory, tell me what's wrong with me
F/D       Em/D            | Dm Em/D | F/D Em/D |
Why am I alone here with no rest
Dm                Em/D  
 And now the name of the ship's not the same
F/D             Em/D       | Dm Em/D | F/D Em/D |
How long has it been Marie Celeste?


BRIDGE
Gm             Am
 Now there's nobody from the crew left
Bb                    C                   | F G | Bb A |
 Five hundred years supply of food just for me


CHORUS
Dm                   Em/D  
 They'll never know, never, no, never
    F/D                  Em/D     [ Dm ]
How strange life in dark water can be
