My Claim to Fame

  		Intro:  
F      C  G  F     C  
Dm   C  G  C 
 
 
C               Am 
Well he's a big star now 
  
         F                 G                C 
But I've been a fan of his for years 
C (*)                         F 
The way he sings and plays guitar 
 
G                   C 
Still brings me to tears  
 
 I wouldn't want to be a big deal 
 I wouldn't want to be a celebrity 
> I spend my life building ships of steel 
> That's all there ever was for me  
>  
> Take a hammer to the sea belles 
> And shout my name 
> And I'll sail the seas as free as a breeze 
> That's my claim to fame  
>  
> He spends his life in the studio 
> Jet planes and big black cars 
> Plays records on the radio 
> In all of the clubs and in all of the bars  
>  
> By day he didn't have a choice 
> You had to take a trade 
> You had no money and you had no voice 
> That's the life I made  
>  
> Take a hammer to the sea belles 
> And shout my name 
> And I'll sail the seas as free as a breeze 
> That's my claim to fame  
>  
> That's my claim to fame boys 
> That's my claim to fame 
> To sail the seas as free as a breeze 
> That's my claim to fame  
 
La, la ....: same as intro 
 
Solo: same as verse 
>  
> Well a song can live forever and a day 
> An old ship goes to the breakers yard 
> In a hundred years you're gonna hear him play 
> They won't remember me for working hard  
>  
> Now they've all gone away, all the boys and the girls 
> They yard is a grave where the river runs through 
> We used to build the ships for the whole wide world 
> Now we couldn't do it if we wanted to  
>  
> Take a hammer to the sea belles 
> And shout my name 
> I'll sail the seas as free as a breeze 
> That's my claim to fame  
>  
> Take a hammer to the sea belles 
> And shout my name 
> I'll sail the seas as free as a breeze 
> That's my claim to fame  
>  
> That's my claim to fame boys 
> That's my claim to fame 
> To sail the seas as free as a breeze 
> That's my claim to fame
