Take Me In Your Lifeboat

A                         D                     A                                    
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
A                        E                           
It will stand the raging storm
A                         D                   A 
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
                       E   A   
It will bear my spirit home
A                       D              A
Come brothers, sisters, don't fall asleep
                                           E
Pray night and day, or you'll sleep in the deep
A                       D           A 
Fathers and mothers are praying so loud
                                E    A
Lord, won't you take us in your lifeboat
A                         D                     A                                    
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat

A                            D            A
The clouds are so heavy, the winds is so loud
A                                     E
The thunder is roaring, beckoning the crowd
A                                D              A
They pray to their shipmates for what they have done
A                                    E    A                            
They took the dying sailor in their  lifeboat
A                         D                     A                                    
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
A                        E                           
It will stand the raging storm

Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
                       E   A   
It will bear my spirit home

SOLO

A                         D                    A                                    
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat

It will stand the raging storm
A                         D                   A 
Take me in your lifeboat, take me in your lifeboat
                       E   D   A   
It will bear my spirit home
