F                                F7                          Bb                                         C
There`s a man I meet,Walks up our street,He`s a worker for the council,Has been twenty years
F                                              F7                               Bb                    C
And he takes no lip off nobody,And litter off the gutter,Puts it in a bag,And never thinks to mutter
F                                                            F7                                      Bb                     C
And he packs his lunch in a Sunblest bag,The children call him Bogie,He never lets on,But I know `cause he once told me
F                                     F7                                     Bb                                   C
He let me know a secret,About the money in his kitty,He`s gonna buy a dinghy,Gonna call her Dignity

Chords As Verse 1

And I`m telling this story
In a faraway scene
Sipping down Raki
And reading Maynard Keynes
And I`m thinking about home
And all that means
And a place in the winter
For Dignity

Chords As Chorus 1

And I`ll sail her up the west coast,Through villages and towns
I`ll be on my holidays,They`ll be doing their rounds
They`ll ask me how I got her I`ll say,I saved my money
They`ll say isn`t she pretty,That ship called Dignity


Verse Chords Continue Til End

Set it up set it up set it up set it up set it up set it up.etc

And I`m thinking about home
And I`m thinking about faith
And I`m thinking about work
And I`m thinking
How good it would be
To be here some day
On a ship called Dignity
A ship called Dignity
That ship
