Wynken, Blynken and Nod  Donovan

[Dm]Wynken, Blynken, and [G]Nod one night, sailed [Am]off in a wooden [G]shoe,
They [C]sailed down a river of [Am]crystal light [Dm]into a sea of [G]dew.
"Now [Dm]where are you going and [G]what do you wish?" the [Am]old moon asked the [G]three.
"We're [C]going out fishing for the [Am]herring fish that [Dm]live in the beautiful [G]sea,
And such [F]silver and [G]gold have we," said [Dm]Wynken, Blynken, and [G]Nod.
So the [Dm]old moon laughed and [G]sang a song as they [Am]rocked in their wooden [G]shoe,
And the [C]breeze that sped them [Am]all night long [Dm]ruffled the waves of [G]dew.
Now the [Dm]stars in the sky were the [G]herring fish that [Am]live in the beautiful [G]sea
Come [C]cast your nets wher[Am]ever you wish, [Dm]never a-feared are [G]we.
So [F]sang the stars to the [G]fishermen three, [Dm]Wynken, Blynken, and [G]Nod.
So [Dm]all night long their [G]nets they threw to the [Am]stars in the twinklin' [G]foam
Then [C]down from the sky came the [Am]wooden shoe a-[Dm]bringin' the fishermen [G]home.
'Twas [Dm]all so beautiful a [G]sight it seemed as [Am]if it could not [G]be.
And [C]some folks thought it was a [Am]dream they dreamed while [Dm]sailin' the beautiful [G]sea
But [F]I shall name you the [G]fishermen three, [Dm]Wynken, Blynken, and [G]Nod.
Now [Dm]Wynken and Blynken are [G]two little eyes and [Am]Nod is a little [G]head.
And the [C]breeze that sped them [Am]all night long is a [Dm]wee one's trundle [G]bed.
So [Dm]close your eyes as [G]mother sings of the [Am]beautiful sights that [G]be,
And [C]you shall see such [Am]wondrous things as you [Dm]rock in your misty [G]sea.
So [F]sang the stars to the [G]fishermen three, [Dm]Wynken, Blynken, and [G]Nod.
