Fisherman's Dream

Click Here for guitar tabs.

Like his daddy before him, his daddy before
He was born to fish from the sea
Up before dawn in the cold morning fog
Always knowing what he wanted to be
He left school when he was eleven
To fish you don't need no degree
At twenty he married his sweetheart
And built a house overlooking the bay

And he never asked no one for nothing
All he wanted God put in the sea
Up before dawn, kiss his woman, he's gone
Out living a fisherman's dream

Dreams have a way, yes, dreams have a way
Of shining or fading away
Big factory ships, they killed all the fish
Somehow I don't think God meant it this way
He sits staring out from his window
He tries but he don't understand
Why people who live in big mansions
Can take his living and not give a damn

And he never asked no one for nothing
All he wanted God put in the sea
Up before dawn, kiss his woman, he's gone
Out living a fisherman's dream

He looks at his wife and walks out in the night
To where his boat rots away in the sand
The tears from his cheeks hit the government cheque
He angrily holds in his hand
They find him early next morning
Lying next to the waters he loved
You don't put that man in a factory
Or kill the dreams of a fisherman's son

And he never asked no one for nothing
All he wanted God put in the sea
Up before dawn, kiss his woman, he's gone
Out living a fisherman's dream
