The Coal Boat Song

Tom Connors

 D
 I left Cape Briton on the coal boat
 A7
for St. John's Newfoundland
I met a little girl named Sally
 D
And I took her by her little white hand
She shook her little head & said no way Fred,
 G
I won't go along with your plan
 D
You been workin' on the coal boat boy
 A7D
And you're nothin' but a dirty old man
 GD
 You been workin' on the coal boat boy
 A7D
And you're nothin' but a dirty old man

 D
Spoken ...Well I had to think of something real fast ya know

 D
 Yeah well I'm gonna quit the dirty coal boats,
 A7
I wanna live in Newfoundland
I'll buy a suit & get married,
 D
put a ring upon your little white hand
She nodded her head & said "Ok, Fred",
 G
Sall went along with the plan
 D
But I'm still workin on the Coal Boat boy
 A7D
And I'm nothin' but a dirty old man
 GD
 But I'm still workin on the Coal Boat boy
 A7D
And I'm nothin' but a dirty old man

 D
 It was sometime later on the Coal Boat
 A7
I got a little letter from home
Sally said Freddy was a good boy,
 D
but the little beggar wanted to roam
She said, "It's too bad he's got you for a dad
 G
And I hope that you feel real grand.
 D
He's gone working on the Coal Boats boy
 A7D
to be just like his dirty old man"
 GD
 He's gone working on the Coal Boats boy
 A7D
to be just like his dirty old man"

 D
 I left Cape Briton on the coal boat
 A7
for St. John's Newfoundland
I met a little girl named Sally
 D
And I took her by her little white hand
She shook her little head & said no way Fred,
 G
I won't go along with your plan
 D
You ain't gonna quits the coal boat boy
 A7D
'Cause I loves ya, ya dirty old man
 GD
 You ain't gonna quits the coal boat boy
 A7D
'Cause I loves ya, ya dirty old man

 D
 So come all young fellars on the coal boat,
 A7
I hope you're gonna understand
If you got a pretty little girlfriend
 D
and ya takes her by the little white hand
If she turns her back & says "No way Jack,
 G
I won't go along with Yer plan"
 D
Just keep workin on the coal boats boy
 A7D
if ya wants to be a dirty old man
 GD
 Just keep workin on the coal boat boy
 A7D
And you'll be nothin' but a dirty old man
