Alestorm- keelhauled

transcribed by Niallakokovich

[Intro]
Bbm Bbm Bbm Bbm Ab [x2]

After violin starts: Bbm Bbm Db Ab

Repeat this a few times and then when there is a sort of stop just before where 
the guitar comes in play F instead of Ab

Then repeat the phrase a few more times

[Verse]
   Bbm
My friends I stand before you
   Db
To tell a truth most dire
      Ab              Gb
There lurks a traitor in our midsts
    F
Who has invoked the captain’s ire
   Bbm
He don’t deserve no mercy
   Db
We ought to shoot him with a gun
    Ab          Gb
But I am not an evil man
   F
So first lets have a little fun

[Pre-Chorus]
      Bbm                              Ab
We’ll tie that scoundrel to a rope and throw him overboard
Gb
Drag him underneath the ship
  F
A terrifying deadly trip

[Chorus]
Bbm           Gb
Keelhaul that filthy landlubber
Ab                   Db
Send him down to the depths below
Bbm               Gb
Make that bastard walk the plank
       Db     Ab Eb  C     Bb A Bb (this line is only single notes)
With a bottle of rum and a yo ho ho

[Verse]
  Bbm
I will not say what he has done
    Db
His sins are far too grave to tell
     Ab              Gb
It’s not my place to judge a man
    F
But for them he will burn in hell
    Bbm
The sharks will dine upon his flesh
    Db
And Davy Jones will have his soul
Ab             Gb
Take his money and his hat
         F
He won’t need them where he’s gonna go

[Pre-Chorus]
      Bbm                              Ab
But first lets tie him to a rope and throw him overboard
Gb
Drag him underneath the ship
  F
A terrifying deadly trip

[Chorus]
Bbm           Gb
Keelhaul that filthy landlubber
Ab                   Db
Send him down to the depths below
Bbm               Gb
Make that bastard walk the plank
       Db     Ab Eb  C     Bb A Bb (this line is only single notes)
With a bottle of rum and a yo ho ho

Then play the last line again to end the song

The plain B should be a Bbm.
The sentence :
"With a bottle of rum and a yo ho ho"
should be :

| Db - Eb - | Bbm F Bbm - |
