A#                              F
Tell me, quick, said Old McFee..what's this all have 
                Cm                D#             A#
to do with me?..I've spent all my time at sea, a loner.
A#                                      F
Is there something else I should know?..something hidden 
                Cm       D#         A#
down below, the level of your conversation?

         Gm          Cm         F
Well, he turned away before the answer..
         Gm            Cm            F
though I yelled aloud, he refused to hear.
              A#     D# A# 
It became too clear..

A#                         F
So, it went as we put out..I was left in constant doubt..
Cm           D#                 A#
everything I asked about seemed private.
A#                                         F
The captain strolled the bridge one night..I stopped him 
                      Cm                  D#
in the evening ask him would it be all right to 
join him.

       Gm          Cm        F
But he stood there like some idol.. 
       Gm       Cm        F
and he listened like some temple..
                    A#  D# A# 
and then he turned away.

A#                           F
All along the fateful coast..we moved silent, like a ghost.
Cm                  D#            A#
The timeless sea of tireless host possessed us.
The wind came building from the cold northwest.. 
F                                  Cm                 D#
and soon the waves began to crest, crashing cross the forward
deck..all hands lost.

  Gm     Cm           F
I alone, survived the sinking..
  Gm     Cm            F
I alone, possessed the tools, on 
             A#    D# A# 
that ship of fools.

A#            D# A#                A#    D# A# 
Ship of fools......on that ship of fools..
A#                  D# A# 
that ship of fools..

About the artist behind Ship Of Fools:

Bob Seger (born May 5, 1945) is an American rock and roll singer-songwriter and musician.

After years of local Detroit-area success, recording and performing in the mid-1960s, Seger achieved superstar status by the mid-1970s and continuing through the 1980s with the Silver Bullet Band. A roots rocker with a classic raspy, shouting voice, Seger was first inspired by Little Richard and Elvis Presley. He wrote and recorded songs that dealt with blue-collar themes. Seger has recorded many rock and roll hits, including "Night Moves", "We've Got Tonight", "Like a Rock" and also co-wrote the Eagles number one hit "Heartache Tonight." His iconic signature song "Old Time Rock and Roll" was named one of the Songs of the Century in 2001. With a career spanning five decades, Seger continues to perform and record today.

Seger was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004.
