Capercaillie - I Will Set My Ship In Order

CAPO: 2nd Fret

C      F

[Verse 1]
Oh, I will set my ship in order
Am                     G    F
I will sail her on the sea
I'll go far over yonder border
Am                G/B      C
To see if my love minds on me

[Verse 2]
Am                     G/B       C
And he sailed east and he sailed west
Am                         G     C  F
He sailed far, far seeking land
Until he came to his true love's window
Am                      G        C   F
And he knocked loud and would be in

[Verse 3]
"Oh, who is that at my bedroom window?
Am                              G     C  F
Who knocks so loud and would be in?"
"'Tis I, 'tis I, your ain true lover
Am                  G/B    C
And I am drenched untae my skin

[Verse 4]
 F                         C
"So go and go and ask your faither
Am                             G   F
And see if he'll let you marry me
If he says no, come back and tell me
Am                          G/B     C
And it's the last time I'll trouble thee"

[Verse 5]
 F                          C
"My father's in his chamber writing
Am                      G      F
Setting down his merchandise
And in his hand he holds a letter
Am                    G/B     C
And it speaks much in your dispraise

[Verse 6]
 F                          C
"My mother's in her chamber sleeping
Am                             G     F
And words of love she will not hear
So you may go and court another
Am                 G/B    C
And whisper softly in her ear"

[Verse 7]
F                          C
Then she arose, put on her clothing
Am                          G    F
It was to let her true love in
But ere she had the door unlockit
Am                   G/B    C
His ship was sailing on the main

[Verse 8]
 F                                 C
"Come back, come back, my ain dear Johnny
Am                             G    F
Come back, come back and marry me"
"How can I come back and marry you, love?
Am                  G/B    C
Our ship is sailing on the sea"

F  C  Am  G  F  C  Am G/B C

[Verse 9]
F                                  C
The fish may fly, and the seas run dry
Am                              G    F
The rocks may melt doon wi' the sun
And working man may forget his labour
Am                 G/B       C
Before that my love returns again

[Verse 10]
F                                 C
She's turned herself right roun' about
Am                            G    F
She's flung herself intae the sea
Farewell for aye, my ain dear Johnny
Am                       G/B     C
Ye'll ne'er hae tae come back to me
