Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Capo at 4th or transpose +4 for original,(or leave like this to sing
with baritones!) (I actually shift 4.3 steps to match original)

Ask if you want chord fingering help.


Intro: Am F  Am F C/G  G

 F          C/E         Dm         F/G  
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo  doo doo

           C   Em     Dm     Am           Dm        F       Bb      F
There's a port, on a western bay, and it serves, a hundred ships a day
        C     Em          Dm   Am        Dm    F          C
Lonely sailors, pass the time away, and talk about their homes
              C   Em         Dm     Am            Dm   F        Bb      F     
And there's a girl, in this harbor town, and she works, layin' whiskey down
           C   Em       Dm      Am         Dm           F          C                         
They say Brandy, fetch another round, she serves them whiskey and wine, the sailors say 

 Am               F                Am                 F
Brandy, you're a fine girl What a good wife you would be
     C/G                 G                F   C/E Dm F/G 
Your eyes could steal a sailor, from the sea

 C    Em          Dm     Am                 Dm     F               Bb        F
Brandy, wears a braided chain, made of the finest silver from the north of Spain
   C    Em      Dm        Am        Dm         F      C
A locket, that bears the name, of a man that Brandy loved
    C  Em      Dm       Am            Dm   F       Bb   F
He came, on a summer's day, bringin' gifts,  from far away
        C       Em        Dm       Am       Dm     F       C
But he made it clear, he couldn't stay, no harbor was his home

                  Am              F                 Am                 F
The sailors say Brandy, you're a fine girl, what a good wife you would be
       C/G                   G           F   C/E  Dm  F/G 
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea

     Am             G                      F                 G 
Yea Brandy used to watch his eyes when he told his sailor's story
           Am             G                  F               G 
She could feel the ocean fall and rise, she saw its ragin' glory
    Am             Bb                      Am             F
But he had always told the truth, Lord, he was an honest man
    C/G              G              F  C/E  Dm F/G 
And Brandy does her best to understand

    C   Em          Dm         Am     Dm     F              Bb      F
At night, when the bars close down, Brandy walks through a silent town
     C      Em         Dm    Am         Dm        F        C
And loves a man, who's not around, she still can hear him say

                    Am              F                 Am                 F
She hears him say Brandy, you're a fine girl, what a good wife you would be
       C/G                   G           F   C/E  Dm  F/G 
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea
      Am              F                 Am                 F
Say Brandy, you're a fine girl, what a good wife you would be
       C/G                   G           F   C/E  Dm  F/G C
But my life, my love and my lady is the sea

Second chord of the verse should be G#m, not F#m. Everything else, esp. the slash chords, is good.

I believe there's a quick F/G in between the verse stances, before it goes back to C.
"...and they talk about their home (F/G)"
