      Am             Em          Am          Em
There were two lofty ships, from old England came
     Am         Em       C       G
Blow high, blow low, and so sail we
    Am                Em              Am              Em
One was the Prince of Luther, and the other Prince of Wales

Cruisin' down along the coast of High   Barbary

"Aloft there, aloft," our jolly boatsman cried
     Am         Em       C       G
Blow high, blow low, and so sail we
       Am          Em              Am              Em
"Look ahead, look astern, look the weather, look a-lee"
      Am             Am       G    G G G      Am   Am Am Am   Am Am Am Am
"Look down along the coast of High       Barbary"

         Am              Em             Am              Em
"There's naught upon the stern, there's naught upon the lee
     Am         Em       C       G
Blow high, blow low, and so sail we
              Am            Em                  Am               Em
But there's a lofty ship to windward, and she's sailin' fast and free"
Am             Am       G    G G G      Am  Am Am Am
Down along the coast of High       Barbary

Blow high, blow low, and so sail we
           Am            Em           Am                    Em
"Are you a man of war, a privateer, a merchant ship?," said he
         Am             Am       G    G      Am  Am Am Am
Cruisin' down along the coast of High   Barbary


[Verse 5]
 Am         Em            Am               Em
"I am not a man of war, a privateer," said he
     Am         Em       C       G
Blow high, blow low, and so sail we
     Am             Em        Am             Em
"But I'm a salt sea pirate, a-looking for my fee"
Am             Am       G    G G G      Am  Am Am Am   Am Am Am Am
Down along the coast of High       Barbary


[Verse 6]
    Am             Em           Am           Em
For broadside, for broadside, a long time we lay
     Am         Em       C       G
Blow high, blow low, and so sail we
  Am                Em              Am             Em
Until the Prince of Luther shot the pirate's mast away
Am             Am       G    G      Am  Am Am Am
Down along the coast of High   Barbary


[Verse 7]
     Am           Em            Am               Em
"For quarter, for quarter," the pirates they did cry
     Am         Em       C       G
Blow high, blow low, and so sail we
        Am             Em            Am               Em
But the answer that we gave them: we sunk them in the sea
         Am             Am       G    G G G      Am  Am Am Am
Cruisin' down along the coast of High       Barbary
         Am             Am       G    G G G      Am  Am Am Am
Cruisin' down along the coast of High       Barbary
         Am             Am       G    G G G      Am
Cruisin' down along the coast of High       Barbary
