By: Elliot Lurie, 1972[1]



Performed: Looking Glass[2]

D F#m Em Bm
There's a port, on a western bay
Em G C/G G
And it serves, a hundred ships a day
D F#m Em Bm Em G D
Lonely sailors, pass the time away, and talk about their homes
 
D F#m Em Bm
There's a girl, in this harbour town
Em G C/G G
And she works, laying whiskey down
D F#m Em Bm Em G D
They say Brandy, fetch another round, she serves them whiskey and wine
 
Bm7 G
The sailors say Brandy, you're a fine girl
Bm7 G
What a good wife you would be
A Asus4/Gb G D/F# Bm7 A
Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea
 
D F#m Em Bm
Brandy, wears a braided chain
Em G C/G G
Made of the finest silver from the north of spain
D F#m Em Bm Em G D
A locket, that bears the name of the man that Brandy loves
 
D F#m Em Bm
He came, on a summers day
Em G C/G G
Bearing gifts, from far away
D F#m Em Bm Em G D
But he made it clear, he couldn't stay, no harbour was his home
 
Bm7 G
The sailor said Brandy, you're a fine girl
Bm7 Gmaj7
What a good wife you would be
A Asus4/Gb G D/F# Bm7 A
But my life, my love, and my lady is the sea
 
refrain
Bm7 A G A
Yes Brandy used to watch his eyes as he told his sailor's stories
Bm7 A G A
She could feel the ocean fall and rise, she saw its raging glory
Bm7 C/G Bm7
But he had always told the truth , Lord he was an honest man
Asus4/Gb A G D Bm7 A
And Brandy does her best to understand
 
D F#m Em Bm
At night, when the bars close down
Em G C/G G
Brandy walks through a silent town
D F#m Em Bm Em G D
And loves a man, who's not around, she still can hear him say
 
Bm7 G
She hears him say Brandy, you're a fine girl
Bm7 G
What a good wife you would be
A Asus4/Gb G D/F# Bm A
But my life, my love, and my lady is the sea
