Intro: | C#m | A | C#m | A | E | B | A E | A |
 
          E   G#m   C#m                F#m   D          A
There's a port on a western bay and it serves a hundred ships a day
       E      G#m       C#m           F#m   A          E
Lonely sailors pass the time away and talk about their homes
              E   G#m      C#m                 F#m  D       A
And there's a girl in this harbor town and she works layin' whiskey down
         E     G#m     C#m               F#m         A           E
They say Brandy fetch another round, she serves them whiskey and wine

                C#m             A
The sailors say Brandy you're a fine girl (you’re a fine girl)
       C#m                 A
What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
           E                  B               A  E  A
Yeah, your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea
 
E     G#m      C#m                   F#m    A               D        A
Brandy wears a braided chain made of finest silver from the north of Spain
  E     G#m   C#m                   F#m      A      E
A locket that bears the name of the man that Brandy loves
   E   G#m   C#m                    F#m        D    A
He came on a summer's day, bringing gifts from far away
       E                G#m       C#m     F#m    A       E
But he made it clear he couldn't stay, no harbor was his home

                C#m             A
The sailors say Brandy you're a fine girl (you’re a fine girl)
       C#m                 A
What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
       E                B           A  E  A
But my life my lover my lady is the sea

      C#m            E                      A                 B
Yeah, Brandy used to watch his eyes when he told his sailor's stories
          C#m            E                  A               B
She could feel the ocean fall and rise, she saw its raging glory
    C#m           D                       C#m           A
But he had always told the truth, Lord he was an honest man
    E               B            A  E  A
And Brandy does her best to understand

   E    G#m       C#m              F#m    A               D      A
At night when the bars close down, Brandy walks through a silent town
    E                 G#m  C#m       F#m       A        E
And loves a man who's not around she still can hear him say

                   C#m             A
She hears him say, Brandy you're a fine girl (you’re a fine girl)
       C#m                 A
What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
       E                B           A  E  A
But my life my lover my lady is the sea
