Sea Shanty Chords

   
***SEA SHANTY - by Shane MacGowan
from the albums "Red Roses For Me"

Sea Shanty - as perfomed by The Pogues

     C
Dear dirty London in the pouring rain
  C                                  F
I wish to God I was back on the sea again
       C
Though that belongs to the world of never will be
          C                                     F
there was never a wilder bastard than me on the sea
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/pogues/sea_shanty_crd.html ]
	C		          F
I could fuck all the whores in damnation me boys
	    C	   	              F
Though they wriggled and hollered and made a great noise
	 C		             F
Then I'd drink 'til I stank and then drink plenty more
      C		           F
And I won't go down to the sea any more
	 C		         F
But if I had ten pounds then I'd raise a loud cheer
	C			     F
And I'd toast all me neighbours both distant and dear
	C			        F
And I'd shoot back great belly-crippling buckets of beer
      C		             F
And a pox and a curse on the people round here
	 C		         F
Wouldn't give you the price of a half pint of beer
	 C		         F
Wouldn't give you the price of a cup of good cheer
  C			 F
A pox and a curse on the people round here

A man's ambition must indeed be small to write his name upon a shithouse wall
But before I die I'll add my regal scrawl to show the world I'm left with sweet fuck all

And when all of us bold shithouse poets do die
A monument grand they will raise to the sky
A monument made just to mark our great wit
A monument of solid shit now me boys
I met with Bill James we fought over crusts
He called me a whore and I booted his crutch
Then we shared out the jack and we thought it a treat
The compliments pass when the quality meet
The compliments pass when the quality meet
The compliments pass when the quality meet
The compliments pass when the quality meet
