Drunken Sailor

Traditional

 Am
 What shall we do with a drunken sailor?
 G
 What shall we do with a drunken sailor?
 Am
 What shall we do with a drunken sailor?
 GAm
 Ear-lye in the mornin'?

 Am
 Way, hey, an' up she rises,
 G
 Way, hey, an' up she rises,
 Am
 Way, hey, an' up she rises,
 GAm
 Ear-lye in the morning.

Put him in the longboat 'till he's sober...

Keep him there and make him bail 'er...

Give him a dose of salt and water...

Shave his belly with a rusty razor...

Put him in bed with the captain's daughter...

 Am
 She looks like an orangutan,
 G
 She looks like an orangutan,
 Am
 She looks like an orangutan,
 G
 Swinging through the rigging.

 Am
 There she goes, swinging through the rigging,
 G
 There she goes, swinging through the rigging,
 Am
 There she goes, swinging through the rigging,
 G
 Ear-lye in the morning.

What shall we do with a drunken sailor?...

thought you might like the correct lyricks to this.


What'll we do with a drunken sailor,
What'll we do with a drunken sailor,
What'll we do with a drunken sailor,
Earl-aye in the morning?

Chorus:
Way hay and up she rises
Patent blocks o' diff'rent sizes,
Way hay and up she rises
Earl-aye in the morning

1. Sling him in the long boat till he's sober,
2. Keep him there and make 'im bale 'er.
3. Pull out the plug and wet him all over,
4. Take 'im and shake 'im, try an' wake 'im.
5. Trice him up in a runnin' bowline.
6. Give 'im a taste of the bosun's rope-end.
7. Give 'im a dose of salt and water.
8. Stick on 'is back a mustard plaster.
9. Shave his belly with a rusty razor.
10. Send him up the crow's nest till he falls down,
11. Tie him to the taffrail when she's yardarm under,
12. Put him in the scuppers with a hose-pipe on him.
13. Soak 'im in oil till he sprouts flippers.
14. Put him in the guard room till he's sober.
15. Put him in bed with the captain's daughter*).
16. Take the Baby and call it Bo'sun.
17. Turn him over and drive him windward.
18. Put him in the scuffs until the horse bites on him.
19. Heave him by the leg and with a rung console him.
20. That's what we'll do with the drunken sailor.

You should add a D chord on the word "in"

in Ear-lye IN the Mornin' because the actual note you sing on the word is D.
It sounds better!
