Em  D   Em  D
Em                 D
Goodbye, little Robin-Marie
Em                  D
Don't try following me
Em                   D
Don't cry, little Robin-Marie
           C        C/B Am Em
'cause you know I'm coming home soon.

Em                     D
My ship's leaving on a three-year tour
Em                              D
The next tide will take us from shore
Em                   D
Windlaced, gather in sail and spray
     C              C/B Am Em
On a search for the mighty sperm whale

A               E
Fly your willow branches
          F#m           C#
Wrap your body round my soul
D                       A                G
Lay down your reeds and drums on my soft sheets
          A               E
There are years behind us reaching
       F#m                    D
to the place where hearts are beating
      A                         D              F#m
and I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet,
      A                         D              F#m
and I know you're the last true love I'll ever meet.

Em                    D
Starbuck's sharpening his harpoon
    Em                      D
The black man's playing his tune
   Em                      D
An old salt's sleeping his watch away
         C      C/B  Am Em
He'll be drunk again before noon.

Em                     D
Three years sailing on bended knee
Em                         D
We found no whales in this sea
Em                   D
Don't cry, little Robin-Marie
