Ships
By Patty Loveless

Capo 3

G   C    G   C 

G
Eddie had a few days comin'
      C
So he took a Las Vegas jaunt
D
Out to the land of supply and demand
              G                D 
Where you can get anything you want
G 
He wasn't lookin' for true love
C 
No, he didn't believe in that stuff
D
Eddie LeGrande was a hard workin' man
                              G
Who just needed a little good luck
    C     
His shoes were a little worn
    G                 Em 
His hair was a little thin
     Am          C/B  
Just another old sailor
C              D            G   
Waitin' on his ship to come in


G
Lily was a two time loser
              C
Who said that love was just a roll of the dice
    D
She acted real tough, said once ain't enough
    G                      D
For me I learned my lesson twice
    G
But deep in her heart lived a young girl
C
Dreamin' a young girl's dream
D
And that young girl was who Eddie ran into
                    G
Over by the slot machines
    C
Her face was a little pale
    G                  Em
Her dress was a little thin
       Am         C/B
Oh but lookin' at her was like
C           D          G
Watchin' his ship come in


G
Well, he bought her a cup of coffee
         C
With the quarters he meant to play
     D
They went for a bite and they talked all night
          G                        D
'Til they said what they needed to say
          G
Then they found 'em an all night chapel
       C 
With a heart shaped honeymoon suite
    D
And somewhere tonight in the neon light
                    G
Two hearts can't be beat
         C 
And he's singin' a little song
      G                 Em 
She's grinnin' a little grin
    Am                   C/B  
And they're holdin' each other
C              D         G
Watchin' their ship come in

    C
Her face was a little pale
    G                 Em  
His hair was a little thin
            Am        C/B
But they're two young lovers
C              D         G
Watchin' their ship come in
     Am         C/B
Just holdin' each other
C              D         G
Watchin' their ship come in
