Wellerman Guitar Chords

Capo On 3rd Fret

 

     Am
There once was a ship
Am
that put to sea

                 Dm
And the name of
                                Am
that ship was the Billy o′ Tea

         Am
The winds blew hard,
Am
her bow dipped down

  E                                    Am
Blow, me bully boys, blow (huh)

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

            E                               Am
We′ll take our leave and go

       Am
She had not been
Am
two weeks from shore

              Dm
When down on her,
     Am
a right whale bore

          Am
The captain called
Am
all hands and swore

           E                             Am
He’d take that whale in tow (huh)

  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

             E                              Am
We′ll take our leave and go

      Am
Before the boat had hit the water

            Dm 
The whale′s tail
           Am
came up and caught her

        Am
All hands to the side,
Am
harpooned and fought her

             E                              Am
When she dived down below (huh)

  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

            E                               Am
We′ll take our leave and go

       Am
No line was cut,
Am
no whale was freed

         Dm
The captain’s mind
        Am
was not on greed

       Am
But he belonged to
Am
the whaleman′s creed

         E                           Am
She took the ship in tow (huh)

  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

            E                               Am
We′ll take our leave and go

       Am
For 40 days, or even more

         Dm
The line went slack,
          Am
then tight once more

       Am
All boats were lost,
Am
there were only four

          E                              Am
But still that whale did 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

            E                               Am
We′ll take our leave and go

      Am
As far as I′ve heard,
Am
the fight′s still on

         Dm
The line’s not cut
                  Am
and the whale′s not gone

           Am
The Wellerman makes
Am
his regular call

           Dm
To encourage the captain,
  Am
crew, and all

  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

            E                               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

            E                               Am
We′ll take our leave and go
