Me  money  at  last  I spent it fast got drunk as  drunk could be
     Dm                                             C      A
And  when my money was all gone  it was then that I wanted more
      Dm                   C                   Dm    C        Dm
But a man must be blind to make up his mind to go to sea once more

And as I roamed the streets of  Bath the whores they all would roar
      Dm                 C

As I walking down the steet I ran into Rapper Brown

         Dm                         C
But I'll take your advance and I'll give you the chance

And I'll send you to sea once more

They shipped me aboard of  a whaling ship bound for the Artic Sea

Where the cold winds  blow thru the frost and the snow

Jamaica  rum would freeze
    Dm                                         C       A
A'las I had no luck with my gear for I left my money ashore
       Dm                       C            Dm            C      Dm
It was then that I wished that  I was  there safe with the girl's

                                                   C        A
And when you come off them long trip pray that you don't go wrong
Dm                                                      C       A
Take my advice  drink no strong drink don't go sleeping with no whores
        Dm                     C                Dm       C      Dm
But get married lads and have all night  in and go to to sea no more
