Marching Inland (Tom Lewis) Lord Nelson had a sure fire way of curing mal-de-mer And if you pay attention, his secret I will share To any seasick sailor, he'd give this advice for free If you're feeling seasick, sit underneath a tree C G7 F C / C - G C G / C G C F G7 / F G7 C / F G7 C CHO: I'm marching inland from the shore Over me shoulder I'm carrying an oar When someone asks what is that funny thing you've got I know I'll never go to sea no more, no more Than I know I'll never go to sea no more Columbus he set sail to find out if the world was round He kept up sailing to the West until he ran aground He thought he found the Indians but he found the USA I know some navigators who can still do that today Drake is in his hammock and a thousand miles away Grenville's revenge is at the bottom of the bay Many famous sailors never came home from the sea Just take my advice, Jack, and come and follow me So sailors take a warning from these men of high renown When you leave the ocean and its time to settle down Never cast your anchor less than ninety miles from shore There'll always be temptation to be off to sea once more DC
