    instrumental intro = CHORUS

 

                      C   - Em          Dm       Am

1. There's a port,         on a western bay,

               Dm      - F                     Bb        F

    and it serves,       a hundred ships a day,

                 C       - Em               Dm      Am

    lonely sailors          pass the time away,

           Dm      F             C         - F

    and talk about their homes.

                            C  - Em           Dm     Am

    And there's a girl,        in this harbor town,

                   Dm     - F              Bb        F

    and she works,       layin' whiskey down.

                        C       - Em             Dm     Am

    They say, Brandy,         fetch another round.

             Dm                  F                C

    She serves them whiskey and wine. The sailors say ...

 

   Am                    F

Brandy, you're a fine girl,

              Am                           F

what a good wife you would be !

          C                           G                       F-C-Dm-G 

Your eyes could steal a sailor, from the sea.

 

        C      - Em                 Dm        Am

2. Brandy,         wears a braided chain,

                        Dm     F                      Bb            F

    made of the finest silver from the north of Spain.

        C        - Em          Dm          Am

    A locket,          that bears the name,

             Dm           F        C         - F

    of a man that Brandy loved.

           C       - Em         Dm          Am

    He came,         on a summer's day,

                 Dm   - F         Bb      F

    bringin' gifts,       from far away.

                  C          Em        Dm        Am

    But he made it clear, he couldn't stay,

          Dm        F         C

    no harbor was his home. The sailors say ...

 

   Am                   F

Brandy, you're a fine girl,

              Am                           F

what a good wife you would be !

             C                               G                F-C-Dm-G 

But my life, my love and my lady is the sea.

 

                 Am                    G

+  Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes

                    F                        G

    when he told his sailor's story.

                     Am                   G                         F                     G

    she could feel the ocean fall and rise, she saw its ragin' glory.

           Am                   Bb                                Am                    F

    But he had always told the truth, Lord, he was an honest man,

               C                       G                   F-C-Dm-G 

    and Brandy does her best to understand.

 

          C      - Em                Dm            Am    

3. At night,         when the bars close down,

      Dm        F                     Bb      F

    Brandy walks through a silent town

            C          Em            Dm    Am

    and loves a man, who's not around,

            Dm          F           C

    she still can hear him say. She hears him say ...

 

+  CHORUS (2x) ....
