[Intro]
C G    C G   C G   C G C

[Verse]
  C                    G
I glimpsed her off the starboard bow,
  F              C    G
A siren bold and brash
  Am            C
I shot a load across her deck,
    F                 C    G
She struck a coloured sash.
  C               G
I called upon the crewmen,
   F                  C    G
"A'vast boys we're in luck"
  Am             C
A galley full of lady pirates
       F
Just a-waiting to be...

[Chorus]
C          G                   F       C
Sorry if I stabbed you with my cutlass,
F            G                  C
  I meant to peg you 'tween the legs.
       Am          Em            Am            C
Let me express contrition at the state of my nutrition,
           G              F                C         C
I'm just a scurvy riddled pirate... on an apologetic bent.

[Verse]
     C          G
Come hither yon pirate bride
    F                C     G
I'm not all that you feared
Am            C
Lay your petticoat aside
       F              C    G
Let me rest upon yore beard
       C            G
I'm an old an weary traveller
       F                C    G
Layin' course by way of stars
    Am            C
Without my trusty sextant
  F
I slipped right up her...

[Chorus]
C            G                   F         C
Sorry if I'm three sheets to the wind, lass
  F                  G                C
I couldn't raise the mainsail up full mast
       Am         Em             Am            C
Let me express contrition at the state of my nutrition,
           G              F                C         C
I'm just a scurvy riddled pirate... on an apologetic bent.

Just listened to the studio version, and I'm pretty sure the progression in the chorus should be: Am Em F C not Am Em Am COtherwise, great tab!

The studio version is extremely rare, but I'm glad you were able to find a copy. Their live version does have a slightly different vibe and I hope that is what I have captured here. Thanks for the feedback... I hope Möits are still around and have found this.
