           C#m A            C#m A ,  E  B   A E A
e-9-7-------------9-7------------------------|                 (do,do...)

[Verse]

           E         A       C#m         F#m
There's  a Port on a Western bay  and it serves
          D       A            E
A hundred ships a day   lonely sailors
         A     C#m     F#m   A          E
Pass the time away and talk about their homes

              E             A      C#m
And there's a girl  in this harbor town
        F#m            D       A
And she works   layin' whiskey down
         E               A      C#m
They say Brandy   fetch another round
    F#m         A           E
She serves them whiskey and wine


[Chorus]

                C#m             A
The sailors say Brandy you're a fine girl (you’re a fine girl)
       C#m                 A
What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
     E                  B               A E A
Your eyes could steal a sailor from the sea (do,do...)


[Verse]

E              A       C#m
Brandy wears a braided chain
        F#m    A               D        A
Made of finest silver from the north of Spain
  E           A         C#m
A locket that bears the name
       F#m      A      E
Of the man that Brandy loves

   E         A        C#m
He came on a summer's day
         F#m        D    A
Bringing gifts from far away
       E                A        C#m
But he made it clear he couldn't stay
   F#m    A       E
No harbor was his home


[Chorus]

                C#m             A
The sailors say Brandy you're a fine girl (you’re a fine girl)
       C#m                 A
What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
       E                B           A  E  A
But my life my lover my lady is the sea (do,do...)


[Bridge]

     C#m            E
Yeah Brandy used to watch his eyes
        A                 B
When he told his sailor's stories
          C#m            E
She could feel the ocean fall and rise
     A              B
She saw it's raging glory
    C#m           D
But he had always told the truth
        C#m           A
Lord he was an honest man
    E               B            A  E  A
And Brandy does her best to understand (do,do...)


[Verse]

   E              A          C#m
At night when the bars close down
F#m    A               D      A
Brandy walks through a silent town
    E                 A   C#m
And loves a man who's not around
    F#m       A        E
She still can hear him say she hears him say


[Chorus]

                  C#m             A
She hears him say Brandy you're a fine girl (you’re a fine girl)
       C#m                 A
What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
       E                B           A  E  A
But my life my lover my lady is the sea (do,do...)

    C#m             A
Say Brandy you're a fine girl (you’re a fine girl)
       C#m                 A
What a good wife you would be (such a fine girl)
       E                B           A  E  A A  E
But my life my lover my lady is the sea (do,do...)

As a personal preference, and someone who doesn't mind an F chord, I find it to be easier to play transposing down 4 semitones.

Instead of E going to A, then C#m, it goes E, G#m7, A, C#m

Also, instead of A E A for the doo doo part, like "does her best to understand doo doo doo" all that stuff, its A, G#m7, F#m7, A7add9.

On the bridge, I believe it is C#m, B, A, B; not C#m, E, A, B.
"Lord he was an honest man" is G#m7, A
