Guitar chords with lyrics

Tuning: G C E A (G C E A)


Verse 1:

    Am
There once was a ship that put to sea
    Dm            Am
And the name of that ship was the Billy o' Tea
              Dm
The winds blew hard, her bow dipped down
 Gm         Am
Blow, me bully boys, blow (Huh!)

Chorus:
F       C
Soon may the Wellerman come
   Dm         Am
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
 F          C
One day, when the tonguin' is done
  Dm          Am
We'll take our leave and go


Verse 2:
 Am
She had not been two weeks from shore
    Dm      Am
When down on her a right whale bore
             Dm
The captain called all hands and swore
   Gm         Am
He'd take that whale in tow (Hah!)


Chorus:
 F       C
Soon may the Wellerman come
  Dm          Am
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
F         C
One day, when the tonguin' is done
 Dm           Am
We'll take our leave and go


Verse 3:
 Am
Before the boat had hit the water
     Dm          Am
The whale's tail came up and caught her

All hands to the side, harpooned and fought her
    Gm       Am
When she dived down below (Huh!)


Chorus:
F       C
Soon may the Wellerman come
 Dm          Am
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
F         C
One day, when the tonguin' is done
Dm        Am
We'll take our leave and go


Verse 4:
Am
No line was cut, no whale was freed;
    Dm        Am
The Captain's mind was not on greed
             Dm
But he belonged to the whaleman's creed;
   Gm        Am
She took that ship in tow (Huh!)


Chorus:
F       C
Soon may the Wellerman come
   Dm        Am
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
F          C
One day, when the tonguin' is done
 Dm           Am
We'll take our leave and go


Verse 5:
 Am
For forty days, or even more
        Dm          Am
The line went slack, then tight once more

All boats were lost, there were only four
    Gm         Am
But still that whale did go


Chorus:
F       C
Soon may the Wellerman come
 Dm          Am
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
 F         C
One day, when the tonguin' is done
 Dm           Am
We'll take our leave and go


Verse 6:
 Am
As far as I've heard, the fight's still on;
   Dm           F(or Am)
The line's not cut and the whale's not gone
   Am           Dm
The Wellerman makes his a regular call
    Gm          Am
To encourage the Captain, crew, and all


Chorus:
 F      C
Soon may the Wellerman come
   Dm        Am
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
F         C
One day, when the tonguin' is done
Dm            Am
We'll take our leave and go
F       C
Soon may the Wellerman come
   Dm         Am
To bring us sugar and tea and rum
 F          C
One day, when the tonguin' is done
    Dm         Am
We'll take our leave and go
