Ghosts of Cape Horn by Gordon Lightfoot Guitar Chords


CAPO: 2nd Fret

[INTRO:] Dm C F G Dm C Dm C F G Dm C Dm

[CHORUS 1:]
All around old Cape Horn
Ships of the line, ships of the morn
Some who wish they’d never been born
They are the ghosts of Cape Horn

[CHORUS 2:]
Falderal da riddle de rum
With a rim dim diddy and a rum dum dum
Sailing away at the break of dawn
They are the ghosts of Cape Horn

[BRIDGE:]
See them all in sad repair
Demons dance everywhere
Southern gales, tattered sails
And none to tell the tale

[VERSE 1:]
N.C. D D/F# G Em
Come all of you rustic old sea dogs
Who follow the [A/G]bright Southern [D/F#]Cross
You were rounding the horn in the [A/G]eye of a [D/F#]storm
When you lost her one day
And you read all your letters from oceans away
Then you took them to the bottom of the sea

[INSTRUMENTAL:] Dm C F G Dm C Dm C F G Dm C Dm

[CHORUS 1:]
All around old Cape Horn
Ships of the line, ships of the morn
Some who wish they’d never been born
They are the ghosts of Cape Horn

[CHORUS 2:]
Falderal da riddle de rum
With a rim dim diddy and a rum dum dum
Sailing away at the break of dawn
They are the ghosts of Cape Horn

[INSTRUMENTAL:] Dm C F G Dm C Dm C F G Dm C Dm

[VERSE 2:]
N.C. D D/F# G Em
Come all you old sea dogs from Devon
Southampton, Pen[A/G]zance and Kin[D/F#]sale
You were caught by the chance of a [A/G]sailor’s last [D/F#]dance
It was not meant to be
And you read all your letters, cried, “Anchors aweigh”
Then you took them to the bottom of the sea

[INSTRUMENTAL:] Dm C F G Dm C Dm C F G Dm C Dm

[CHORUS 1:]
All around old Cape Horn
Ships of the line, ships of the morn
Some who wish they’d never been born
They are the ghosts of Cape Horn

[CHORUS 2:]
Falderal da riddle de rum
With a rim dim diddy and a rum dum dum
Sailing away at the break of dawn
They are the ghosts of Cape Horn
