Lyrics and Chords

  Jackie left on a cold, dark night
  Telling me he'd be home
  Sailed the seas for a hundred years
  Leaving me all alone

  / Dm - / A - / C - / G Dm / 

  And I've been dead for twenty years
  I've been washing the sands with my ghostly tears
  Searching the shores for my Jackie, oh

  / Dm - / A - / C - Dm - /

I remember the day the young man came
Said, your Jackie's gone, he got lost in the rain
And I ran to the beach, and laid me down

You're all wrong, I said, and they stared at the sand
That man knows that sea like the back of his hand
He'll be back some time, laughing at you

  And I've been waiting all this time
  For my man to come, take his hand in mine
  And lead me away to unsailed shores

I've been washing the sand with my salty tears
Searching the shore these long years
And I'll walk the sea forever more

'Til I find my Jackie, oh
'Til I find my Jackie, oh
'Til I find 
My Jackie, oh
Jackie, oh
Jackie, oh

/ C - Dm - / / C - - / Dm C / / Dm C Dm C Dm - /
