Lyrics and Chords

[As recorded by Looking Glass]

There's a port on a western bay
And it serves a hundred ships a day
Lonely sailors pass the time away
And talk about their homes

/ D F#m Em Bm / Em G C G / 1st / Em G D - /

And there's a girl in this harbor town
And she works layin' whiskey down
They say "Brandy, fetch another round"
She serves them whiskey and wine

   The sailors say "Brandy, you're a fine girl - you're a fine girl
   What a good wife you would be - such a fine girl
   Yeah, your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea"

   / Bm7 A G - / / D - A - G D Em A /

Brandy wears a braided chain
Made of finest silver from the north of Spain
A locket that bears the name
Of a man that Brandy loved

He came on a summer's day
Bringin' gifts from far away
But he made it clear he couldn't stay
No harbor was his home

   The sailor said "Brandy, you're a fine girl...
   But my life, my love and my lady is the sea"

Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes
When he told his sailor stories
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
She saw its ragin' glory
But he had always told the truth
Lord, he was an honest man
And Brandy does her best to understand

/ Bm7 - A - / G - A - / : / Bm7 - C - / Bm7 - G - / 
   / A - - - G D Em A /

At night, when the bars close down
Brandy walks through the silent town
And loves a man, who's not around
She still can hear him say

She hears him say "Brandy, you're a fine girl...
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea"
