Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
A pop-version of a sea shanty in F-sharp minor Dorian mode by Hugues Aufray. 
This means that you can play a Dorian scale in F#m to it.
Here is a Dorian scale: F# G# A B C# D E F#. If you transpose the song to D minor, 
this means that the scale on a piano is just white keys from D to D. 
Very typical for sea shanties and medieval songs like Scarborough Fair and Drunken Sailor. 
Anyway, I like these kinds of songs so I tabbed it:
----

Intro: F#m
 
         F#m                                E
C'est un fameux trois-mâts fin comme un oiseau.
         F#m      E
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
Bm7                    E       C#m
Dix huit nœuds, quatre cent tonneaux :
        F#m      E    F#m
Je suis fier d'y être matelot.

      F#m                       E
Tiens bon la vague tiens bon le vent.
         F#m      E
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
Bm7                   E       C#m 
Si Dieu veut toujours droit devant,
     F#m         E     F#m
Nous irons jusqu'à San Francisco.

Je pars pour de longs mois en laissant Margot.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
D'y penser j'avais le cœur gros
En doublant les feux de Saint-Malo.

Tiens bon la vague tiens bon le vent.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
Si Dieu veut toujours droit devant,
Nous irons jusqu'à San Francisco.

(instrumental break)
|F#m    |F#m  E |F#m    |E      |Bm7     |E   C#m |F#m   E |F#m    | 

On prétend que là-bas l'argent coule à flots.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
On trouve l'or au fond des ruisseaux.
J'en ramènerai plusieurs lingots.

Tiens bon la vague tiens bon le vent.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
Si Dieu veut toujours droit devant,
Nous irons jusqu'à San Francisco.

Un jour, je reviendrai chargé de cadeaux.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
Au pays, j'irai voir Margot.
A son doigt, je passerai l'anneau.

      F#m                        E
Tiens bon le cap et tiens bon le flot.
         F#m      E
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
Bm7            E            C#m
Sur la mer qui fait le gros dos,
     F#m         E     Dmaj7       F#m
Nous irons jusqu'à San Francisco.

Outro: F#m
