Words & Music:



C                 F

Out of my window, looking in the night,

      Am      G7     C

I can see the barges flickering light.

Silently flows the water to the sea,

And the barges do go silently.



C               F

Barges, I would like to go with you,

        Am      G7       C

I would like to sail the ocean blue.

C                F

Barges, have you treasure in your hold?

       Am         G7      C

Do you fight with pirates brave and bold?


Out of my window, looking in the night,

I can see the barges flickering light.

Starboard shines green and port is glowing red,

I can see the barges straight ahead.
