D                                    E             E7

Seventy-three men sailed up from the San Francisco Bay.

G7                                             D

Rolled off of their ship, and here's what they had to say:

"We're calling everyone to ride along to another shore.

We can laugh our lives away and be free once more."


But no-one heard them calling, no-one came at all.

'Cause they were too busy watching those old raindrops fall.

As a storm was blowing out on the peaceful sea.

Seventy-three men sailed off into history.



D                             A

Ride, captain, ride upon your mystery ship.

     C                                 D

Be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip.

Ride captain, ride upon your mystery ship.

On your way to a world that others might have missed.







Ride, captain, ride upon your mystery ship.

Be amazed at the friends you have here on your trip.
