Am               C
  Sing a song of Madeleine-Mary
Dm            Am
  A tune that all can carry
Am              C
  Burly says if we don't sing
Dm                 Am
Then we won't have anything

Am                C
  All the boys on ship set sail
Dm               Am
  & the mate was Madeleine-Mary
Am                  C
  When her eyes did fill with tears
Dm            Am
  It was extraordinary
Am            C
  It was extraordinary
Dm               Am
  For we none of us could see it
Am                C
  For she kept herself kept below
Dm          Am
  & all her feelings private

Am               C
  Sing a song of Madeleine-Mary
Dm            Am
  A tune that all can carry
Am              C
  Burly says if we don't sing
Dm                 Am
Then we won't have anything

Am                 C
  None of us could get a glimpse
Dm           Am
  But all of us did want it
Am                  C
  At night, above our sleeping heads
Dm             Am
  Our sleeping dreams were haunted

Am          C
  So now my kids you'd like to hear
Dm           Am
  Of one who reached & got her
Am              C
  Well if there was well I think
Dm             Am
  He sleeps beneath the water

Am               C
  Sing a song of Madeleine-Mary
Dm            Am
  A tune that all can carry
Am              C
  Burly says if we don't sing
Dm                 Am
Then we won't have anything



Very cool "sailor song" from Will Oldham's 1999 album I See A Darkness. 
Enjoy the chord interpretation! ~ettawhy

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong.

This is a one chord song (Am) with lots of delay and riffs. I tried subbing an F for your C and incorporating less changes, but it didn't sound right.

I saw your cover on YouTube -- nice job :). Me myself, I can't make it work...yet. I gave you 4 stars to balance the one star rating(ridiculous). I challenge anyone to tab this song without 'interpreting' it. Criticism is easy, arranging songs is hard.
