[INTRO]

Dm


[VERSE ONE]

  Dm                     C         Dm
A shanty man's life is a wearysome one
                     C         Dm
Though some say it's free from care
         A              Dm                    C
It's the swinging of an axe from morning till night
       Dm     A#       Dm
In the forest wild and drear


[VERSE TWO]

     Dm                      C       Dm
Transported as we are from a lady so fair
                     C      Dm
To the banks of some lonely stream
          A              Dm                    C
Where the wolf, bear and owl give a terrifying howl
       Dm       A#      Dm
And disturb our nightly dreams


[VERSE THREE]
 
   Dm                       C             Dm
Oh sleeping at night in our bunks without cheer
                      C        Dm
While the cold winter winds do blow
       A           Dm                C
But as soon as the morning star does appear
       Dm         A#      Dm
To the wild woods we must go


[VERSE FOUR]

       Dm                    C              Dm
Had we ale, wine or beer our spirits for to cheer
                    C        Dm
When we're in those woods so wild
        A                Dm                              C 
Where a glass of whiskey shone, while we're in the woods alone
       Dm            A#   Dm    
For to pass away our long exile


[INTERLUDE]

A Dm C Dm A# Dm 


[VERSE FIVE]

  Dm                     C         Dm
A shanty man's life is a wearysome one
                     C         Dm   
Though some say it's free from care
         A              Dm                    C
It's the swinging of an axe from morning till night
       Dm     A#       Dm
In the forest wild and drear
