[Verse 1]

G 
There's good money don't you fear,
         C               G
Said the man down by the pier,
         C        G           D
For the sea is a life that is calling;
G
Won't you chase the new black gold,
       C             G
Where once a herring shoal,
                          D            G
There's black gold in the deep waters, Johnny.


[Chorus]

          D                 G
Where the North Sea wind is blowing,
                              Em
And the day is a lifetime too long,
         G                        C                G
Where we drill, sweat and toil to take the ocean's oil,
                          D            G
There's black gold in the deep waters, Johnny.


[Verse 2]

G
There are men from Scapa Flow,
         C             G
And the kid from Sandy Row,
         C           G              D
SEDCO men who look all spiff and sparkle;
G
On a money spending binge,
     C             G
Joy riding on the rigs,
                                    D              G
And you'll chase the new black gold without your gargle.


[Chorus]

          D                 G
Where the North Sea wind is blowing,
                              Em
And the day is a lifetime too long,
         G                        C                G
Where we drill, sweat and toil to take the ocean's oil,
                          D            G
There's black gold in the deep waters, Johnny.


[Verse 3]

G
There's twelve hour shifts to do,
           C              G
Playing nurse mate to the crew,
           C              G             D
There's a loneliness and fear in empty oceans;
G
From the Shetlands to the Kesh,
          C                    G
They're chasing oil instead of fish,
                            D         G
For black gold in the deep waters, Johnny.


[Chorus]

          D                 G
Where the North Sea wind is blowing,
                              Em
And the day is a lifetime too long,
         G                        C                G
Where we drill, sweat and toil to take the ocean's oil,
                          D            G
There's black gold in the deep waters, Johnny.


[Verse 4]

G
For the rig's me second home,
             C           G
Sitting pretty o'er the foam,
           C            G          D
A way of life that's new to every nation;
G
And there's a hundred extra quid,
         C             G
To go diving with the squid,
                        D           G
For black gold in the deep waters, Johnny.


[Chorus] (x2)

          D                 G
Where the North Sea wind is blowing,
                              Em
And the day is a lifetime too long,
         G                        C                G
Where we drill, sweat and toil to take the ocean's oil,
                          D            G
There's black gold in the deep waters, Johnny.
