Intro: A,B9,B,C#9,A,B9,B,C#9,C,B,A,C,B,A

O'[A]Captain my[B9] captain th[B]e ship is goin[C#9]g down

O'[A]Captain my[B9] captain won't yo[B]u please tur[C#9]n around
[C]Women and [B]children on the [A]life raft first
No [C]pushing no [B]shoving, I [A]said children first
O'[A]Captain my [B9]captain [B]won't you come [C#9]aboard
There is [A]nothing that [B9]you can [B]do any [C#9]more
But the [C]captain just [B]stood and [A]looked over stern
Whith a [C]look in his [B]eye a [A]look of concern
O'[A]Captain my [B9]captain [B]it's your last [C#9]chance
O'[A]Captain my [B9]captain live [B]again to [C#9]dance
But the [C]water [B]rose to the [A]captains knee
As the [C]ship [B]sunk to the [A]bottom of the sea
O'[A]Captain my [B9]captain I [B]bid the [C#9]farewell
O'[A]Captain my [B9]captain what a [B]tale they will [C#9]tell
With the [C]captains last [B]breath he [A]tipped his hat to me
That is [C]all of the [B]captain that [A]I'll ever see
O'[A]Captain my [B9]captain [B]now turned to [C#9]bubbles
>From here they go (on the album) into the big jam, but
I don't have time to tab that out now. If I get any
requests, maybe I'll post it later.
