Hi, guys. I know this is not perfect. The intro and the first part of the verses 
were quite hard to figure out and I'm sure that there's a better solution for it. 
I just didn't find it out :D
So if you know how to play it better, please, contact me ! Also for critisism, 
suggestions, requests or anything you want to tell me, feel free to do so, for 
example in my comments. 
So I really love Marina, she is a fantastic artist and I'm sure I'm going to do a 
lot more of her. 
I hope you're having fun with it. :)

No capo.

Dm     Dm       Dm       F       C      Dm

Dm
Grandpa was a miner, and he gave me my black art,
Dm
Glittered rivers of black coal-dust tore our country apart,
C                                                F
Covered in coal-dust, waking up too early in the morning,
C                                                    F     D
Covered in coal-dust, waiting for the moment the canary sings.

Dm
Mama was a mermaid and a carnaby street gal,
Dm
She could have been a model, but she spent her life mopping up spilt milk,
C
Covered in sea salt, would he, could he be home 
           F                 D
when the stars came out to party,
C
Covered in sea salt, yeah I know it was my fault, 
           F                      D
but he always ran away 'cause he didn't want me.

C                 F              D            Gm
Oh, Daddy was a sailor, and he gave me a black heart,
C              F              D                 Gm
Daddy was a sailor, the only man that could tear me apart
C       F     Dm         Gm
Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,
C      F         D
Daddy, Daddy, Da-a-ddy.

Dm
Sister dances salsa, and she cha-cha's like a Queen,
Dm                                                                          F
I was a non-believer when she told me I was free,
C                               F
Aunty Emmy was a medium, oh she worked the Ouija board.
C                                         F              D
Seeking out the lost souls, and taking them back to the Lord.

C                 F              D            Gm
Oh, but Daddy still was a sailor, and he gave me a black heart,
C              F              D                 Gm
Daddy was a sailor, the only man that could tear me apart
C       F     Dm         Gm
Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,
C       F     Dm         Gm
Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy, Daddy,
C   F     Dm    Gm
Ahh, Ahh, Ahh, Ahh,
C    Gm    F
Ahh, Ahh a. 

Hope you enjoyed. - mangomelodies.
