Intro:
Am   Amsus2   Am   Amsus2

Verse 1:
      Am           Amsus2      F        G
Three fishers went sailing out into the west,
    Am       Amsus2      Em       G
Out into the west as the sun went down,
     F              F          C             G
Each thought on the woman that loved him the best,
        Am             Amsus2        F          G
And the children stood watching them out of the town,

Chorus:
    C        C        F          G
For men must work and women must weep,
            Am        Amsus2   Em      G
For there's little to earn and many to keep,
        F       F      Am    G
And the harbour bar be moanin',
    Am      F      G     C
The harbour bar be moanin'.

Verse 2:
Three wives sat up in the lighthouse tower,
They trimmed the lamps as the sun went down,
And they looked at the squall and they looked at the shower,
And the night wrack came rollin' in, ragged and brown.

Chorus

Verse 3:
Three corpses lay out on the shining sand,
In the morning gleam as the tide went down,
And the women were weepin' and wringin' their hands,
For those who would never come back to the town.

Good work! Have added the 'tags' between chorus and verses and the other choruses.

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'.
