My father always swore;

And buy himself a big new boat,

Many years did pass away

And Dad began to fade.

He didn't talk of boats too much,
Am chordAm D chordD
He said "Son I'm afraid"
G chordG
If things don't soon improve
C chordC G chordG
Then I'll be underground;
C chordC G chordG
Before we ever get to see ourselves,
C chordC D chordD G chordG
In a boat like Gideon Brown.



CHORUS
G chordG
I sat and held his hand one day
C chordC G chordG
And he said "Son, that policy"
C chordC G chordG
The insurance is all in your name
Am chordAm D chordD
You're the beneficiary
G chordG
And when I'm gone they'll pay you off.
C chordC G chordG
Then go to St. John's town
C chordC G chordG
And buy yourself a big, new boat,
C chordC D chordD G chordG
In a boat like Gideon Brown.
C chordC D chordD G chordG
In a boat like Gideon Brown.
