F                                                             Bb                                         C
There`s a man I meet, Walks up our street, He`s a worker for the council, Has been twenty years
F                                                                                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                                                                                                       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                                                                               Bb                                   C
He let me know a secret, About the money in his kitty, He`s gonna buy a dinghy, Gonna call her Dignity


Bb                                                 C                                      Am                             Dm
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
Bb                                                     C                          Am                                      
They`ll ask me how I got her I`ll say, I saved my money, They`ll say isn`t she pretty
        Dm   Am    Bb    C   F
That ship called--Dig- -ni--ty

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

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

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
