Chords: Håkan Mattsson
Piano intro

Em D repeatedly

Em               D       Cmaj7    D 
Old lady with a barrow; life near ending 
Em               D           Cmaj7         D 
Standing by the harbour wall; warm wishes sending 
    Am             D 
  children on the cold sea swell --- 
   F   G          D 
  not fishers of men --- 
   Am       D             G    Em 
  gone to chase away the last herring: 
   Am  G            D 
  come empty home again. 
 F                             G 
So come all you lovers of the good life 
  F        G           D 
  on your supermarket run --- 
 F                 G 
Set a sail of your own devising 
  C              G                D 
  and be there when the Dutchman comes, 
            Am            G                D      B 
  you'd better be there when the Dutchman comes.

Em D...

Em               D       Cmaj7          D 
Wee girl in a straw hat: from far east warring 
Em               D           Cmaj7         D 
Sad cargo of an old ship: young bodies whoring 
    Am        D 
  Slow ocean hobo --- 
   F      G             D 
  ports closed to her crew 
   Am     D        G Em 
  No hope of immigration --- 
   Am      G         D 
  keep on passing through. 
 F                             G 
So come all you lovers of the good life 
   F              G             D 
  your children playing in the sun --- 
 F                 G 
Set a sympathetic flag a-flying 
  C              G                D 
  and be there when the Dutchman comes, 
            Am            G                D      B 
  you'd better be there when the Dutchman comes.

Instrumental: 
Am Em D  x4 
D  C  D  x5 (?) 
 

Em                      D       Cmaj7          D 
Death grinning like a scarecrow --- Flying Dutchman 
Em                         D        Cmaj7         D 
Seagull pilots flown from nowhere --- try and touch one 
    Am                   D 
  as she slips in on the full tide 
   F      G             D 
  and the harbour-master yells 
   Am     D                  G Em 
All hands vanished with the captain --- 
   Am      G         D 
  no one left, the tale to tell. 
 F                             G 
So come all you lovers of the good life 
   F                G       D 
  Look around you, can you see? 
 F                      G 
Staring ghostly in the mirror --- 
  C         G                 D 
  it's the Dutchman you will be 
 Am          G            D 
..floating slowly out to sea 
  C 
  in a misty misery.

Em D  repeatedly

End: 
C G A A Em
