Verse 1:
G G
Oh Gideon lived across the bay,
C C G G
He's getting older now.
C C G G
His boat is big and bold.
Am Am D D
She has a stalward bow
G G
But my father's boat was second hand,
C C G G
One someone used before,
C C G G
And after every fishing trip
Am Am D D
My father always swore;
G G
That someday he would save enough
C C G G
To go to St. John's town.
C C G G
And buy himself a big new boat,
C C D D G G
A A boat like Gideon Brown.
C C D D G G
A A Boat Like Gideon Brown.


CHORUS:
Em Em
'Cause she can punch the head in any gale
C C D D
And ride the fishing grounds.
G G Em Em
I often thought how pround I'd be
C C D D G G
In a boat like Gideon Brown.
C C D D G G
In a boat like Gideon Brown.



Verse 2:
G G
Many years did pass away
C C G G
And Dad began to fade.
C C G G
He didn't talk of boats too much,
Am Am D D
He said "Son I'm afraid"
G G
If things don't soon improve
C C G G
Then I'll be underground;
C C G G
Before we ever get to see ourselves,
C C D D G G
In a boat like Gideon Brown.



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