Linda Thompson - Never Put To Sea Boys

CAPO: 1st Fret

## NOTE: ~ = Walk-Down from C to Am and C to G ##


[Verse 1]

We once took a tall ship
    G                   Am
And sailed out from the Thames
     C      ~           Am
With two or three young officers
                G        Am
And a whole new fleet of men
        C       ~     Am
We were looking for adventure
        G                            Em
We were gone for years and years and years
Never put to sea, me boys
      C         ~           Am
It'll bring you nothing but tears

[Verse 2]

We'd not been gone a few short days
  G                Am
A week, but barely two
       C     ~           Am
When a black storm and a howling gale
         G       Am
Affected bad the crew
     C       ~        Am
They pleaded with the captain
 G                    Em
"Turn, turn the ship around"
Never put to sea, me boys
          C           ~         Am
There's a chance that you might drown

    C      ~      G
Oh, here's to the sailors
    C             Em
The young and the live
Here's to the sailors
          C              Em      Am
And their pretty, pretty wives

[Verse 3]

We met a Spanish galleon
    G              Am
The fight ensued severe
     C        ~      Am
Such fearsome bloody pirates
     G                Am
That some men died of fear
  C         ~         Am
A brave few were left standing
      G                        Em
Would not desert, desert their guns
And the blood from off our decks, me boys
     C     ~      Am
Like water it did run

[Verse 4]

We gained a painful victory
    G                Am
And then sat down to dine
    C        ~        Am
You drank to king and country
  G            Am
I drank to Caroline
    C       ~     Am
And god has had a hand in this
    G                            Em
For death for, death has left me be
Never, never, never again
C      ~      Am
Will I put to sea

  C          ~       G
I don't care for the army
C            Em
Or the infantry
Haul away, me brave boys
     C          Em      Am
It's on to victory

Am    G  Am  C ~ Am  G  Am  C ~ Am  G  Am   C ~ Am E

[Verse 5]
We made it back to Blighty
    G              Am
But some of us had gone
   C    ~       Am
To Davy Jones's locker
  G            Am
Poseidon and beyond
    C     ~     Am
And now I am an old man
  G                         E7
I wish, I wish that I could be
Once more upon the docks, me boys
   C        ~      A
Prepared to put to sea
