D                              G      D
Oh the times were hard and the wages low
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
        G        D           G         D
And the grub was bad and the gales did blow
         D        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her

CHORUS:
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
    G                  D   
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her
        G         D            G        Bm   
For the voyage is done and the winds do blow
         G        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her

D                     G       D
I thought I heard the Old Man say
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
        G    D        G         D
You can go ashore and take your pay
         D        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her

CHORUS:
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
    G                  D   
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her
        G         D            G        Bm   
For the voyage is done and the winds do blow
         G        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her


D                             G          D
Oh her stern was foul and the voyage was long
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
      G       D           G         D
The winds was bad and the gales was strong
         D        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her

CHORUS:
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
    G                  D   
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her
        G         D            G        Bm   
For the voyage is done and the winds do blow
         G        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her


D                                   G       D
And we'll leave her tight and we'll leave her trim
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
    G         D      G      D
And heave the hungry packet in
         D        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her

CHORUS:
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
    G                  D   
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her
        G         D            G        Bm   
For the voyage is done and the winds do blow
         G        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her


D                            G          D
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her with a grin
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
            G      D      G            D
For there's many a worser we've sailed in
         D        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her

CHORUS:
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
    G                  D   
Oh, leave her, Johnny, leave her
        G         D            G        Bm   
For the voyage is done and the winds do blow
         G        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her


D                     G       D
And now it's time to say goodbye
A                  D
Leave her, Johnny, leave her
         G        D       G         D
For the old pier-head's a-drawing nigh
         D        A     D
And it's time for us to leave her

D A D
its time for us to leave her

Always play D,A,D
Not G,A,D as it does at the end of the verses. It MAY be correct but singing along it doesn't sound right. the D does

Otherwise awesome, thanks alot!

This is what works better for me both in the verse and chorus:

And it's t[G]ime for us to l[(C)]eave h[C]er

'C' can be played either at 'leave' (more modern), or at 'her' (more traditional).
