Intro (twice):
|G Em |C  D |
|G Em |C D G |


G              C         D
We set sail at half past four, 
G              C    D
Looking for a new tomorrow 
G                     C      D
Don't know when we're coming home 
      G (stop)
So we drink and we dance and we drown our sorrow


G     Em   C         D
Whey, hey, hey laddy hey 
G        Em            C         D     G
Whey hey hey and we'll drink the night away


|G Em |C  D |
|G Em |C D G |


G                           C       D
Now I don't know what there lies in store 
         G                        C       D
But it's better than this, that's why I'm willing 
   G                   C       D
To stake my claim on a foreign shore 
        G (stop)
With me spoons and me fiddle and half a shilling


G     Em   C         D
Whey, hey, hey laddy hey 
G        Em            C         D     G
Whey hey hey and we'll drink the night away


|G Em |C  D |
|G Em |C D G |


        G                    C         D
They've dreamt a place and I know it's true 
          G                      C      D
Where the dolphins play and it's always sunny 
     G                      C     D 
The girls are brown and the ocean blue 
       G (stop)
Less work to do but you make more money


G     Em   C         D
Whey, hey, hey laddy hey 
G        Em            C         D     G
Whey hey hey and we'll drink the night away


|G Em |C  D |
|G Em |C D G |


  G              C         D
I must be off by morinng's light, 
      G                C       D
I can hear our bosun's whistle blowin 
G                 C        D
One more kiss and one more fight 
    G (stop)
And one more song while the beer is flowing


G     Em   C         D
Whey, hey, hey laddy hey 
G        Em            C         D     G
Whey hey hey and we'll drink the night away

Hey!

[solo] 

    (repeat 3 times)

    |G Em |C  D |
    |G Em |C D G |


[end solo]

---- (slower) ----
         G                C      D
When the sky is grey look out to sea 
         G                      C        D
When the waves are high and the light is dying 
     G                 C        D
Well raise a glass and think of me 

---- (Speed comes back) ----
         G               C       D
When I'm home again boys I'll be buying


G     Em   C         D
Whey, hey, hey laddy hey 
G        Em            C         D     G
Whey hey hey and we'll drink the night away

G     Em   C         D
Whey, hey, hey laddy hey 
G        Em            C         D     G
Whey hey hey and we'll drink the night away

---- (instrumentals out) ----

Whey, hey, hey laddy hey 
Whey hey hey and we'll drink the night away

Whey, hey, hey laddy hey 
Whey hey hey and we'll drink the night away

---- (instrumentals back) ----

|G Em |C  D |
|G Em |C D G |
