Judy Collins - Bonnie Ship The Diamond


CAPO: 5th Fret



[Intro]
G Bb G Bb G Bb  Dm  (2x)


[Verse 1]
                 Am
The Diamond is a ship my boys
        Dm               Am
For the Greenland she is bound
        Dm             F
And the quay it is all garnished
     G               Dm
With bonnie lassies around


[Verse 2]
                      Am
The Captain gives the order
   Dm             Am
To sail the ocean wide
          Dm           F
Where the sun it never sets me lads
    G                 Dm
Nor darkness dims the sky


[Chorus]
         C      Am
So cheer up, my lads

Let your hearts never fail

For the bonnie ship the Diamond
                     G
Goes fishing for the whale


[Interlude]
G Bb G Bb G Bb  Dm  (2x)


[Verse 3]
                  Am
Along the quay at Peterhead
    Dm             Am
The lassies stand around
           Dm                 F
With their shawls about their heads
        G                  Dm
And the salt tears running down


[Verse 4]
                    Am
I'll never weep, my bonnie lad
Dm               Am
Though I'm left behind
            Dm            F
For there's not a rose in Greenland's ice
   G                    Dm
To make you change your mind


[Chorus]
         C      Am
So cheer up, my lads

Let your hearts never fail

For the bonnie ship the Diamond
                     G
Goes fishing for the whale


[Interlude]
G Bb G Bb G Bb  Dm  (2x)


[Verse 5]
                       Am
Here's a health to the Resolution
    Dm             Am
Likewise the Eliza Swan
         Dm                    F
Here's a health to the Battler of Montrose
        G               Dm
And the Diamond ship of fame


[Verse 6]
                       Am
They wear the trousers of the white
    Dm             Am
The jackets of the blue
     Dm             F
When they return to Peterhead
        G               Dm
They'll find it weeping true


[Chorus]
         C      Am
So cheer up, my lads

Let your hearts never fail

For the bonnie ship the Diamond
                     G
Goes fishing for the whale


[Interlude]
G Bb G Bb G Bb  Dm  (2x)


[Verse 7]
                     Am
It'll be bright both day and night
         Dm                  Am
When the Greenland lads come home
       Dm                  F
With a ship that's full of oil, me lads
    G              Dm
And money to their name


[Verse 8]
                         Am
They'll make the cradles for to rock
        Dm              Am
And the blankets for to tear
    Dm            F
And every lass in Peterhead
      G             Dm
Sings hush-a-bye my dear


[Chorus]
         C      Am
So cheer up, my lads

Let your hearts never fail

For the bonnie ship the Diamond
                     G
Goes fishing for the whale


[Outro]
G Bb G Bb G Bb  Dm  (2x)
