Em7/4
Mim7                             Sim7             Lam7            Sim7
It's all there in the gospels, the Magdalene girl
                                Lam9              Sim7                 Do    Re
Comes to pay her respects, but her mind is awhirl.
When she finds the tomb empty, the stone had been rolled,
Not a sign of a corpse in the dark and the cold.
              C6/4
When she reaches the door, sees an unholy sight,
                   Re                             Si/Re#
There's this solitary figure in a halo of light.
         Mim9                                     Do7+/9/Mi           
He just carries on floating past Calvary Hill,
Re/Fa#                                                       Si7
In an almighty hurry, aye but she might catch him still.
                  Lam7                                                     Re
"Tell me where are ye going Lord, and why in such haste?"
   Si/Re#                                           Mim9
"Now don't hinder me woman, I've no time to waste!
For they're launching a boat on the morrow at noon,
And I have to be there before daybreak.
        C6/4                               A/C#
Oh I canna be missing, the lads'll expect me,
       Re                                                 Si/Re#
Why else would the good Lord himself resurrect me?
      Mim9                                   Do7+/9/Mi
For nothing will stop me, I have to prevail,
         D/F#                    B/F#                                           B7
Through the teeth of this tempest, in the mouth of a gale,
Do6/4                                               Lam7                  Re
May the angels protect me if all else should fail,
           Do6/4 Sim7   Mim   /Re    
When the last ship sails."
Do6/4                                                  Lam7                      Re
Oh the roar of the chains and the cracking of timbers,
     Lam9                       Sim7                              Do     Re
The noise at the end of the world in your ears,
Do6/4                                          Lam7                          Re
As a mountain of steel makes its way to the sea,
Do6/4 Sim7  Mim     
And the last ship sails.
C  A/C#  Bb/D  Bbm/Db Cm7
Fa                                   Dom7
It's a strange kind of beauty,
Sibm7                 Dom7
It's cold and austere,
Sibm7                               Dom7                  Reb    Mib
And whatever it was that ye've done to be here,
Fam                     Dom7                   Sibm7               Dom7  
It's the sum of yr hopes yr despairs and yr fears,
Reb         Dom7                Fam           Fam/Mib
When the last ship sails.
Reb                                                  Sib/Re
Well the first to arrive saw these signs in the east,
B/D#                                             Bm/D            C#m7
Like that strange moving finger at Balthazar's Feast,
Fa#                                   Do#m7                          Sim7     Do#m7
Where they asked the advice of some wandering priest,
   Sim7                Do#m7                                      Re                      Mi
And the sad ghosts of men whom they'd thought long deceased,
Fa#m7                        Do#m7                 Sim7            Do#m7
And whatever got said, they'd be counted at least,
Re           Do#m7            Fa#m     /Mi
When the last ship sails.
Re7+                                                         Sim7              Do#m7
Oh the roar of the chains and the cracking of timbers,
Sim7                        Do#m7               Re                  Mi
The noise at the end of the world in your ears,
Re7+                                                    Sim7              Do#m7
As a mountain of steel makes its way to the sea,
Re          Do#m7        Fa#m         /Mi
And the last ship sails.
Re7+                                                 Sim9                   Do#m7
And whatever you'd promised, whatever you've done,
Sim7                  Do#m7                   Re                   Mi
And whatever the station in life you've become.
Re7+                                                 Sim9                    Mi
In the name of the Father, in the name of the Son,
Re                          La/Do#                      Sim7                  Do#m7
And whatever the weave of this life that you've spun,
Sim7               /La             Mi/Sol#                       Mi
On the Earth or in Heaven or under the Sun,
Re                   Do#m7           Fa#5
When the last ship sails.
