                / D         / G           / D          / A
For there's / little to / earn and / many to / keep, and

In the / morning / gleam as the / tide went / down, and
      / G                 / A               / D                 / A
The / women were / weepin' and / wringin' their / hands,

This is the way it goes:

Three Fishers Words Charles Kingsley, Music Garnet Rogers

Capo 2nd fret

(Am) (A2) (Am) (A2)
Three (Am)fishers went (A2)sailing out (F)into the (G)west,
Out (Am)into the (A2)west as the (Em)sun went (G)down,
Each (F)thought on the woman that (C)loved him the (G)best,
And the (Am)children stood (A2)watching them (F)out of the (G)town,

For (C)men must work and (F)women must (G)weep,
For there's (Am)little to (A2)earn and (Em)many to (G)keep,
And the (F)harbour bar be (Am)moa(G)nin',
And the (Am)harbour (F)bar be (G)moa(C)nin'. (F) (C) (C/B)

Three (Am)wives sat (A2)up in the (F)lighthouse (G)tower,
They (Am)trimmed the (A2)lamps as the (Em)sun went (G)down,
And they (F)looked at the squall and they (C)looked at the (G)shower,
And the (Am)night wrack came (A2)rollin' in, (F)ragged and (G)brown.

For (C)men must work and (F)women must (G)weep,
Though (Am)storms be (A2)sudden and the (Em)waters be (G)deep,
And the (F)harbour bar be (Am)moa(G)nin',
And the (Am)harbour (F)bar be (G)moa(C)nin'. (C/B)
- Instrumental verse -

For (C)men must work and (F)women must (G)weep,
Though (Am)storms be (A2)sudden and the (Em)waters be (G)deep,
And the (F)harbour bar be (Am)moa(G)nin',
And the (Am)harbour (F)bar be (G)moa(C)nin'. (F) (C) (C/B)

Three (Am)corpses lay (A2)out on the (F)shining (G)sand,
In the (Am)morning (A2)gleam as the (Em)tide went (G)down,
And the (F)women were weepin' and (C)wringin' their (G)hands,
For (Am)those who would (A2)never come (F)back to the (G)town,

For (C)men must work and (F)women must (G)weep,
And the (Am)sooner it's (A2)over, the (Em)sooner to (G)sleep,
And good(F)bye to the bar and its (Am)moa(G)nin',
And good(Am)bye to the (F)bar and its (G)moa(C)nin'.
For men must work and (F)women must (G)weep,
And the (Am)sooner it's (A2)over, the (Em)sooner to (G)sleep,
And good(F)bye to the bar and its (Am)moa(G)nin',
And good(Am)bye to the (F)bar and its (G)moa(C)nin'.
