[Verse 1]

          G           C          G 
T’was a cold and frosty morning in December, 
               Em           D
with all of me money being spent, 
      G            C          G 
What day it was I hardly can remember, 
                 D               G
so I down to the shipping office went. 


[Chorus]

               C                 
Oh Paddy lie back,(oh Paddy lie back)
              G 
Take in your slack,(take in your slack) 
  G                      Em             D                
Take a turn around the capstan, heave a pawl
G            C                 G
’Bout ships stations boys, be handy 
                         D                 G 
For we're bound for Valparaiso, round the Horn.


[Verse 2]

G                      C               G 
That day there was a great demand for sailors, 
                      Em             D 
For the Colonies for Frisco and for France 
     G                C                G 
So I shipped aboard a liner named the Hotspur 
                  D          G 
And got paralytic drunk on my advance. 


[Chorus]

               C                 
Oh Paddy lie back,(oh Paddy lie back)
              G 
Take in your slack,(take in your slack) 
  G                      Em             D                
Take a turn around the capstan, heave a pawl
G            C                 G
’Bout ships stations boys, be handy 
                         D                 G 
For we're bound for Valparaiso, round the Horn.


[Verse 3]

 G               C                G 
Now some of our fellows had been drinking 
                  Em           D 
And me myself was heavy on the booze 
      G          C                G 
So I sat upon me ol’ sea-chest a-thinking 
                  D               G 
I'd turn into me bunk and have a snooze 


[Chorus]

               C                 
Oh Paddy lie back,(oh Paddy lie back)
              G 
Take in your slack,(take in your slack) 
  G                      Em             D                
Take a turn around the capstan, heave a pawl
G            C                 G
’Bout ships stations boys, be handy 
                         D                 G 
For we're bound for Valparaiso, round the Horn.


[Verse 4]

G                      C             G 
Well I wish that I was in the Jolly Sailor, 
                 Em                D 
Along with Irish Paddies drinking beer 
       G              C              G 
And I thought what a jolly lot are sailors, 
                       D            G 
An’ with me flipper I wiped away a tear. 


[Chorus]

               C                 
Oh Paddy lie back,(oh Paddy lie back)
              G 
Take in your slack,(take in your slack) 
  G                      Em             D                
Take a turn around the capstan, heave a pawl
G            C                 G
’Bout ships stations boys, be handy 
                         D                 G 
For we're bound for Valparaiso, round the Horn.

               C                 
Oh Paddy lie back,(oh Paddy lie back)
              G 
Take in your slack,(take in your slack) 
  G                      Em             D                
Take a turn around the capstan, heave a pawl
G             C                 G
 ’Bout ships stations boys, be handy 
                         D                 G 
For we're bound for Valparaiso, round the Horn.
