There are many versions of this song but this is me own favorite! You can also 
make up ye own lyrics.


/ = Down stroke
V = Up stroke




Em         Em           Em 
/          /            /   V   /   V       
What shall we do with a drunken sailor, 
D          D            D 
/          /            /   V   /   V
What shall we do with a drunken sailor,
Em         Em           Em 
/          /            /   V   /   V       
What shall we do with a drunken sailor, 
D               Em
/    V   /  V   /   /
Ear-ly in the mor-ning? 


Now just repeat the chords!


Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Ear-ly in the morning!

Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Shave his belly with a rusty razor,
Ear-ly in the morning.

Way-hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Ear-ly in the morning!

Put him in a long boat till his sober,
Put him in a long boat till his sober,
Put him in a long boat till his sober,
Ear-ly in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Ear-ly in the morning!

Stick him in a barrel with a hosepipe on him,
Stick him in a barrel with a hosepipe on him,
Stick him in a barrel with a hosepipe on him,
Ear-ly in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Ear-ly in the morning!

Put him in the bed with the captains daughter, 
Put him in the bed with the captains daughter,
Put him in the bed with the captains daughter,
Ear-ly in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Ear-ly in the morning!

That's what we do with a drunken sailor, 
That's what we do with a drunken sailor,
That's what we do with a drunken sailor,
Ear-ly in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Ear-ly in the morning!

Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Way hay and up she rises,
Ear-ly in the morning! 



Now if this song is too long thats okay, you can change the lyrics or make it 
shorter. It's a easy song!

You might want to fingerpick it like this, instead of just strumming the chords - it sounds very cool this way:


e|---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2---0---0---0---0---2---2---0---0-|
B|---0---0---0---0---3---3---3---3---0---0---0---0---3---3---0---0-|
G|---0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2---0---0---0---0---2---2---0---0-|
D|-----------------0-------0-----------------------0---------------|
A|-----2-------2-------0-------0-------2-------2-------0-------2---|
E|-0-------0-----------------------0-------0---------------0-------|

And just repeat this throughout the song - enjoy :)
