PIRATE SONG- ALESTORM
(Black Sails at Midnight)

worked out by ear so might not be exactly 100% but the least it could be is 99%.
everything here sounds right but might not be exactly correct. i wrote this for
keyboard but it would proably be the same for guitar, as most of it is just power chords anyway.

INTRO- Ab5   B5   F#5   C#
       Ab5   B5   F#    C#
       Ab5   B5   F#5   C#
       Ab5   B5   B5    F#   Ab5

       Ab5                   B5
Though you see me now a mere ghost of a man
  F#5                     C#
I once had the heart of a lion
   Ab5                    B5
Commanded my ship between many a shore
    F#5               C#
The ol’ Jolly Roger a-flyin

Ab5                         B5
Mine was a name that struck fear into men
      F#5                 C#
And regret into plenty of lasses
Ab5                   B5
Oh how I wish I could take back those days
     F#5                       C#
As I stare at these empty beer-glasses

      B                            Ebm
And I think of the times past when I had it all
  C#                               Ab5
I toyed with men’s wives and their daughters
    B                     Ebm
And in my pursuit of this ill-gotten wealth
  C#                          Eb
I stabbed and I slashed and I slaughtered

        Ab5       E5
And for what? The men that I’ve fought
    F#5                      C#
Are matched by the number of women I’ve bought
        Ab5        E5
And for what? I’ve killed and I’ve shot
    F#5                        F#
And reddened the cold tears of children with blood
    Ab5        F#          B5       C#5
And if I could go back and make my amends
    B5             F#5      Ab5
I’d make all those mistakes again
         B5         F#           Eb           Ab5
I’d kill every last one of those bastards, my friend

REPEAT INTRO- Ab5   B5   F#5   C#
              Ab5   B5   F#    C#
              Ab5   B5   F#5   C#
              Ab5   B5   B5    F#   Ab5

   Ab5                          B5
My ship was the last sight that many would see
      F#5                       C#
As we narrowed the gap with our quarry
    Ab5                      B5
The sound of the cannons and splintering wood
      F#5                   C#
Would herald our paths into glory


Ab5                          B5
We seized all the bounty and scuppered the ship
    F#5                        C#
Our hearts hadn’t time for the wounded
Ab5                     B5
I took my share and the crew got the rest
    F#5                  C#
And on into port we then bounded

     B                       Ebm
Life has many pleasures, and we had our fill
   C#                      Ab5
Of food and of wenches and beer
          B                        Ebm
When we’d tired of the port or had drunken it dry
    C#                          Eb
The time to set sail would come near

        Ab5      E5
And for what? We heeded no law
     F#5                 C#
Made other men suffer so we could have more
        Ab5      E5
And for what? We lived every day
         F#5                    F#
With the noose of the hangman a hair’s breadth away
    Ab5        F#          B5       C#
And if I could go back and make my amends
    B5             F#        Ab5
I’d make all those mistakes again
         B5         F#           Eb           Ab5
I’d kill every last one of those bastards, my friend

      REPEAT ACCORDIAN PART

   Ab5                       B5
Oh I have seen wonders you’d never have dreamed
    F#5                   C#
And taken my fair share I must say
Ab5                   B5
Holds full of booty I happily seized
     F#5                       C#
From crews who would not see a new day

        Ab5                 B5
Spanish gold came and went, gem stones got sold
      F#5                     C#
But I knew more lay on the horizon
        Ab5                       B5
Yet the beer was too good and the gals were too sweet
    F#5                    C#
And now in my old age it’s gone

      B                             Ebm
These memories were bought with the lives of good men
  C#                        Ab5
A price that I paid without scruple
   B                      Ebm
So many souls suffered so I could get drunk
    C#                      Eb
And swagger from brothel to brothel

        Ab5        E5
And for what? It’s been many years
        F#5                             C#
Yet the screams of the vanquished still ring in my ears
        Ab5        E5
And for what? I’ve blood on my hands
  F#5                      F#
I wait for my place in the halls of the damned
    Ab5        F#          B5       C#
And if I could go back and make my amends
    B5             F#       Ab5
I’d make all those mistakes again
         B5         F#           Eb          Ab5
I’d kill every last one of those bastards my friend
