[Verse 1]
(slow, 3/4 time)     C    G                       C     G
Well, I’ve drunk to drown    on every ocean I’ve been
           C    G                       Dm     G
Lake Tanganyika,  where the crocodiles swim
(fast 4/4)     C     G                  C     G
Halifax, Nova Scotia   to Van Diemen’s land
                       C     G                 Dm    G
Well I drank with the Sultan   down the Suez Canal

[Chorus]
             C            G
Cause every dog has it’s day
            C                       G
Like every woman, she gets her own way
                  C                 G
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight
                    F                              C    G    C    G     
I’ll captain that, too...   just to be there with you

[Verse 2]
                          C      G                   C    G
Well there was old Jerry Rooney,   who was mad as a mule
              C    G                       Dm    G
Spillblood Maloney   had a head like one, too
                    C     G                    C    G
That night on the bridge    with my shovel in hand
                       C       G                              Dm    G
Well he threatened to kill me    I’m sure he picked the wrong man

[Chorus]
             C            G
Cause every dog has it’s day
            C                       G
Like every woman, she gets her own way
                  C                 G
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight
                    F                              C    G    C    G     
I’ll captain that, too...   just to be there with you

[Verse 3]
                          C     G                           C     G
Well there was mutiny in Lagos    aboard the mean ship Skondi
                        C     G                           Dm
Ten or twelve days in prison    till the bastards set me free
    G
McCloskey, you’re free

[Instrumental]
C   G   C   G   C   G   Dm   G
C   G   C   G   C   G   Dm

[Chorus]
             C            G
Cause every dog has it’s day
            C                       G
Like every woman, she gets her own way
                  C                 G
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight
                    F                              C    G    C    G     
I’ll captain that, too...   just to be there with you

[Verse 4]
(slow 3/4)      C   G                   C    G
Now I love the sea,   and she wants me back
                     C     G                     Dm    G
So I leave this ol’ harbor   with the wind at me back
(very slow)        C   G                         C     G
Goodbye mother Theresa   I hope the kids settle down
                      C    G                        Dm     G
I must head for the Chinas    Pray to God I don’t drown

[Chorus] (x3)
             C            G
Cause every dog has it’s day
            C                       G
Like every woman, she gets her own way
                  C                 G
And if there’s a ship that sails tonight
                    F                              C    G    C    G     
I’ll captain that, too...   just to be there with you
