Fishermans Blues Chords/Lyrics/Verse

G                                      F
I wish I was a fisherman, tumbling on the seas
Am                                                C
Far away from dry land, and it's bitter memories
G                                                           F
Casting out my sweet line, with abandonment and love
Am                                                               C
No ceiling staring down on me, save the starry sky above

Fishermans Blues Chords/Lyrics/Chorus

                            G                        F                    Am            C
With light in my head, you in my arms, woo woo ooh

Fishermans Blues Chord/Lyrics/Verse 2

G                                                       F
I wish I was the brake man, on a hurtlin' fevered train
Am                                                                C
Crashing headlong into the heartland, like a cannon in the rain
G                                                              F
With the beating of the sleepers, and the burning of the coal
Am                                                           C
Counting towns flashing by me, in a night that's full of soul

Fishermans Blues Chord/Lyrics/Chorus

G                                               F
Oh I know I will be loosened, from bonds that hold me fast
Am                                                         C
And the chains all hung around me, will fall away at last
G                                                        F
And on that fine and fateful day, I will take thee in my hands
Am                                        C
I will ride the train, and I will be the fisherman

Fishermans Blues/Lyrics/Chorus

                            G                        F                    Am            C
With light in my head, you in my arms, woo woo ooh


The Waterboys

the waterboysThe Waterboys are a British-Irish folk rock band formed in Edinburgh in 1983 by Scottish musician Mike Scott. The band's membership, past and present, has been composed mainly of musicians from Scotland, Ireland and England. Mike Scott has remained as the only constant member throughout the band's career.

They have explored a number of different styles, but their music is mainly a mix of folk music with rock and roll. They dissolved in 1993 when Scott departed to pursue a solo career. They reformed in 2000, and continue to release albums and tour worldwide.

Scott emphasises a continuity between The Waterboys and his solo work, saying that "To me there's no difference between Mike Scott and the Waterboys; they both mean the same thing. They mean myself and whoever are my current travelling musical companions."

The early Waterboys sound became known as "The Big Music" after a song on their second album, A Pagan Place. This style was described by Scott as "a metaphor for seeing God's signature in the world."Waterboys chronicler Ian Abrahams elaborated on this by defining "The Big Music" as, "...a mystical celebration of paganism. It's extolling the basic and primitive divinity that exists in everything ('the oceans and the sand'), religious and spiritual all encompassing.

Here is something that can't be owned or built upon, something that has its existence in the concept of Mother Earth and has an ancestral approach to religion. And it takes in and embraces the feminine side of divinity, pluralistic in its acceptance of the wider pantheon of paganism."

"The Big Music" either influenced or was used to describe a number of other bands specializing in an anthemic sound, including U2, Simple Minds, In Tua Nua, Big Country and Hothouse Flowers.

In the late 1980s, the band became significantly more folk influenced. The Waterboys eventually returned to rock and roll, and have released both rock and folk albums since reforming.
