Original token by David Rovics - Black Flag Flying

This version is how i play this song! I added some more chords to accompany the guitar better 
to the vocals. Furthermore the vocalmelodie is a bit different to the original
The strumming pattern i use is: DD UDUDD UDUDD UDUDD ...   (i do with hammer-on between U D UhD D)
Hope you understand and like it^^

[There are no Verses and Chorus, the song is played as unique]

Am

Am
Come all you sailors near and far

You honest men know who you are
F
All of you who'd dare be free
    Am
Combine with us upon the sea
  F
Together we will drink a toast
C        C/B      Am
Ride the wind on down the coast
G
See the merchant ship to board
F
Raise a jar and swing a sword
         C        C/B     Am       Em
Watch to see the merchant captain crying
           F       G          Am
When they see the black flag flying

Am

Am
The war with Spain is over now

No more Jack over the bow
   F
We fight for no one but our class
       Am
We're gonna kick some captain's ass
 F   
All you who'd live before you die
 C            C/B          Am
Come give an honest life a try
 G
Sail beneath the skull and bones
F
Pay no heed to crowns and thrones
C       C/B       Am    Em
No more greedy princes lying
         F              G          Am
When you sail with the black flag flying

Am

Am
No more whips and no more chains

To live free or die is what remains
   F
If life is too short either way
    Am
You might as well live free today
F
All for one and one for all
      C          C/B      Am     
We'll board the ship and make the call
 G
Join us all, you good men
    F
And have your liberty again
          C         C/B         Am      Em
Watch the crew now leave their captain frying
        F              G          Am
As they sail with the black flag flying

Am

   Am
Here's to Fly and Roberts, brave and true

And Mary Kelly's gallant crew
   F
It seems to me the world is ours
 Am
Watch as the mighty Navy cowers
   F
We have no nation but the sea
     C        C/B         Am     Em
No creed but that we'll living free
      G
We'll loot and burn, all we can
       F
That's run by a dishonest man
      C       C/B        Am        Em
Their end is near and theres no denying
          F        G          Am
When they see the black flag flying

Am

   Am
If I could predict the future then I would

But all I know that this is good
F
1720 is the year
    Am
And there is nothing left for us to fear 
F
We may live or we may die
   C        C/B   Am    Em
Perhaps our destiny is nigh
  G
I don't know what the end may hold
    F
But I know these ships are filled with gold
          C      C/B       Am          Em
That was stolen from the poor, we lay dying
          F              G          Am
So let us sail with the black flag flying


Am
