Drunken Sailor
Traditional


Em
What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
D
What shall we do with the drunken sailor?
Em
What shall we do with the drunken sailor?

chorus:
Em  D         Em
Ear-ly in the morning
Em
Hooray, and up she rises
D
Hooray, and up she rises
Em
Hooray, and up she rises
Em  D         Em
Ear-ly in the morning


*****each line is sung 3 times then has the chorus sung after****
2.  Put him in the long boat 'til he's sober
3.  Pull out the plug and wet him all over
4.  Put him in the bilge and make him drink it
5.  Put him in a leaky boat and make him bale her
6.  Tie him to the scuppers with the hose pipe on him
7.  Shave his belly with a rusty razor
8.  Tie him to the topmast while she's yardarm under
9.  Heave him by the leg in a runnin' bowline
10. Keel haul him 'til he's sober
11. That's what we do with the drunken sailor!

I like to play the chorus this way,

D Asus2 Em
Ear-ly in the morning
Em
Hooray, and up she rises
D
Hooray, and up she rises
Em
Hooray, and up she rises
D Asus2 Em
Ear-ly in the morning

D = X00232 to X00032
Asus2 = 002200 or A5 = 0022XX to 00200X
Em = 022000

or as an alterrnate for the whole song use D & C or D & Cadd9 for the verse and chorus then becomes C or Cadd9 to G to D. You can use a D Harmonica if it's played this way. Enjoy!
