More GBS.....I love it

Jolly Roving Tar

Capo: 3rd fret

Intro:  D G D A
        

D                  G
Ships may come and ships may go
    A                   D
As long as the sea does roll
D                       G
Each sailor lad just like his dad
    A                   D
He loves the flowing bowl
D               G
A trip ashore he does adore
        D                  A
With a girl who's nice and round
          D
When the money's gone
          G
It's the same old song
        A               D
Get up Jack John sit down

Chorus
      D                     G
Come along, come along, You jolly brave boys,
        D                    A
There's lots of grog in the jar
        D               G
We'll plough the briny ocean
           A            D G D A 
With the jolly roving tar



Jack comes in, it's then he'll steer
To some old boarding house
They'll welcome him with run and gin,
And feed him on pork scouse
He'll lend and spend and not offend
Till he's lying drunk on the ground
But when

Chorus

Jackie then ahh then he'll sail 
Bound out for Newfoundland
All the ladies fair in Placentia there
They love that sailor man.
He'll go to shore out on a tear
He'll buy some girl a gown.
But when

Chorus

When Jack gets old and weatherbeat,
Too old to roam about,
They'll let him stop in some rum shop
Till eight bells calls him out.
Then he'll raise his eyes up to the skies,
Sayin' ``Boys, we're homeward bound.''
But when

Chorus (x2)
