The Dreadnaught
Bouncy.. drum, guitars Loud, lively.
Pick up rhythm with bass string lifts (Arr. Tony Bez)

Early Victorian Sea Shanty/ Folk song. Author unknown ( anyone help?)

Am                                        D
There is a flash packet, flash packet of fame;
        Am                         G              C             
She hails from New York and the Dreadnaught's her name;
                                                   G
She's bound to the westward where the stormy winds blow
N.C.    Am                                      G
And away   to the westward the Dreadnaught will go;
           Am          G           AM
    Derry down, *down, down, derry down.* ( 2nd voice repeat)

Am                                              D
Now the Dreadnaught she lies in the river Mersey,
Am                      G           C
Awaiting the tugboat to take her to sea,
                                                G
around the Rock Light where the salt tides do flow;
N.C.    Am                                     G
And away to the westward the Dreadnaught will go;
           Am         G         Am
    Derry down, down, down, derry down.

Am                                                D     
Now the Dreadnaught's a-howling down the wild Irish Sea,
     Am                    G              C     
Her passengers merry with hearts full of glee,
Am                                        G
Her sailors like lions they strut to and fro;
N.C.    Am                         G    
She's A Liverpool packet, o Lord, let her go;
        Am             G           AM
    Derry down, down, down, derry down.

Am                                                    D
Here's a health to the Dreadnaught and all her brave crew,
    Am                         G         C      
To bold Captain Samuels, his officers, too;
                                                G
And to those she can't carry its not that she's small
N.C.    Am                                      G
The Dreadnaught's a flier she can't take 'em all;
         Am            G           AM
    Derry down, down, down, derry down.
 Am            G           AM
down, down, derry down.
 Am            G           AM
down, down, derry down.   repeat these 2 lines to finish
