[Intro]
Dm  C   Bb     Am
Dm  Am  F   C  Dm
Dm  C   Bb     Am
Dm  Am      C  Dm


[Verse]
    Dm           Am
The Diamond is a ship me lads,
        Dm                 Am
For the Davis Strait she's bound,
        Dm             Am
And the quay it is all garnished
         F      C       Dm
With the bonnie lassies round.
        Dm                 Am
Captain Thompson gives the orders
   Dm             Am
To sail the ocean wide
          Dm           Am
Where the sun it never sets me lads
    F        C        Dm
Nor darkness dims the sky.


[Chorus]
         Dm
And it's cheer up, me lads,
         Dm           Bb
Let your hearts never fail,
    Dm              Am
The bonnie ship the Diamond
       F       C       Dm
Goes a-fishing for the whale!


[Interlude]
Dm  C   Bb     Am
Dm  Am      C  Dm


[Verse]
 Dm               Am
Along the quay at Peterhead
    Dm              Am
The lassies gather 'round
          Dm                 Am
Wi' their shawls all pulled about them
        F          C       Dm
And the salt tears runnin' down.
     Dm                Am
Now, don't you cry, my bonnie lass,
       Dm            Am
Though you be left behind
        Dm                Am
For the rose will grow on Greenland's ice
  F         C         Dm
Before I'll change my mind.


[Chorus]
         Dm
And it's cheer up, me lads,
         Dm           Bb
Let your hearts never fail,
    Dm              Am
The bonnie ship the Diamond
       F       C       Dm
Goes a-fishing for the whale!


[Interlude]
Dm  C   Bb     Am
Dm  Am      C  Dm


[Verse]
         Dm                Am
Here's a health to the Resolution,
    Dm             Am
Likewise the Eliza Swan,
         Dm                    Am
Here's a health to the Battler of Montrose
        F       C       Dm
And the Diamond ship of fame.
   Dm                Am
We wear the trousers of the white
        Dm             Am
And the jackets of the blue,
     Dm           Am
When we return to Peterhead
      F        C       Dm
We'll hae sweethearts enoo.


[Chorus]
         Dm
And it's cheer up, me lads,
         Dm           Bb
Let your hearts never fail,
    Dm              Am
The bonnie ship the Diamond
       F       C       Dm
Goes a-fishing for the whale!

And it's cheer up, me lads,
         Dm           Bb
Let your hearts never fail,
    Dm              Am
The bonnie ship the Diamond
       F       C       Dm
Goes a-fishing for the whale!


[Verse]
         Dm                  Am
It'll be bright both day and night
         Dm               Am
When the Greenland lads return
       Dm                  Am
With a ship that's full of oil, me lads,
    F       C      Dm
And money's for to burn.
      Dm               Am
We'll make the cradles for to rock
        Dm              Am
And the blankets for to tear
    Dm            Am
And every lass in Peterhead
          F      C      Dm
Will sing hush-a-bye my dear!


[Chorus]
         Dm
And it's cheer up, me lads,
         Dm           Bb
Let your hearts never fail,
    Dm              Am
The bonnie ship the Diamond
       F       C       Dm
Goes a-fishing for the whale!


[Chorus]
         Dm
And it's cheer up, me lads,
         Dm           Bb
Let your hearts never fail,
    Dm              Am
The bonnie ship the Diamond
       F       C       Dm
Goes a-fishing for the whale!
