Although I'm feeling, mighty sick

I've been lost now, days uncounted
And it's been months since, I've seen home
Can you hear me, can you hear me
Or am I, all alone

verse3

If you return me, to my home port
I will kiss you, mother earth
Take me back now, take me back now
To the port, of my birth

Bridge

Dm            Bb           Dm            Bb
Am i in my cabin dreaming, or are you really scheming
Dm         Bb              F     A     A
To take my ship away from me
Dm             Bb           Dm               Bb
You'd better think about it, I just can't live without it
Dm              Bb                      F    A    A
So please don't take my ship away from me

I can feel the hand, of a stranger
And it's tightening, round my throat
Heaven help me, heaven help me
Take this stranger, from my boat

I'm your captain, I'm your captain
Although i'm feeling, mighty sick
Everybody, listen to me
And return me, my ship

verse6

I'm your captain, yea yea yea yea (x4)


then play the outro till the end. the outro is very slow and not at all like the verses.


outro
D                        C
I'm getting closer to my home (repeat till end)


This is a great tune, enjoy, and ask for more.

About the artist behind Im Your Captain Chords:

Grand Funk Railroad (later known as Grand Funk) is an American rock band. The Grand Funk Railroad lineup was highly popular during the 1970s, having sold over 25 million records and selling out arenas worldwide and having been awarded four RIAA gold albums in 1970, the most for any American Group that year. The current Grand Funk Railroad lineup uses the nickname "The American Band", from their hit song "We're an American Band". A popular take on the band during their heyday was that the critics hated them, but audiences loved them. Contrary to the name, the band is not a real funk band; but rather an attempt to pun the name "Grand Trunk Railroad" as that railroad went through Flint; although some sources cite the band's "The Locomotion" cover song as a funk track.
