 Am chord diagramAmAm                      G chord diagramGG         Am chord diagramAmAm
A chord diagramAA shanty man's life is a wearisome one
                      G chord diagramGG        Am chord diagramAmAm
Though some say it's free from care
        E chord diagramEE               Am chord diagramAmAm
It's the swinging of an axe
                  G chord diagramGG
From morning 'till night
      Am chord diagramAmAm      F chord diagramFF        Am chord diagramAmAm
In the forest wild and drear

 Am chord diagramAmAm                          G chord diagramGG        Am chord diagramAmAm
Transported as we are from a lady so fair
                    G chord diagramGG       Am chord diagramAmAm
To the banks of some lonely stream
         E chord diagramEE                Am chord diagramAmAm
Where the wolf, bear, and owl
                   G chord diagramGG
Give a terrifying howl
     Am chord diagramAmAm         F chord diagramFF         Am chord diagramAmAm
And disturb our nightly dreams

  Am chord diagramAmAm                         G chord diagramGG             Am chord diagramAmAm
Oh sleeping at night in our bunks without cheer
                       G chord diagramGG         Am chord diagramAmAm
While the cold winter winds do blow
   E chord diagramEE                Am chord diagramAmAm
But as soon as the morning
            G chord diagramGG
Star does appear
 Am chord diagramAmAm              F chord diagramFF        Am chord diagramAmAm
To the wild woods we must go

                              G chord diagramGG              Am chord diagramAmAm
Had we ale, wine, or beer our spirits for to cheer
                    G chord diagramGG        Am chord diagramAmAm
When we're in those woods so wild
       E chord diagramEE                 Am chord diagramAmAm
Where a glass of whiskey shone
                        G chord diagramGG
When we're in the woods alone
      Am chord diagramAmAm      F chord diagramFF             Am chord diagramAmAm
For to pass away our long exile

                          G chord diagramGG         Am chord diagramAmAm
A chord diagramAA shanty man's life is a wearisome one
                     G chord diagramGG         Am chord diagramAmAm
Though some say it's free from care
         E chord diagramEE             Am chord diagramAmAm
It's the swinging of an axe
                   G chord diagramGG
From morning 'till night
      Am chord diagramAmAm       F chord diagramFF          Am chord diagramAmAm
In the forest wild and drear

Am chord diagramAmAm F chord diagramFF Am chord diagramAmAm F chord diagramFF Am chord diagramAmAm
