Santiano  Hugues Aufray

A pop-version of a sea shanty in F-sharp minor Dorian mode by Hugues Auffray.
This means that you can play a Dorian scale in F#m to it.
Here is a Dorian scale: F# G# A B C# D E F#. If you transpose the song to D minor,
this means that the scale on a piano is just white keys from D to D.
Very typical for sea shanties and medieval songs like Scarborough Fair and Drunken Sailor.
Anyway, I like these kinds of songs so I tabbed it:
[----]  
Intro: F#m
C'est un [F#m]fameux trois-mâts fin comme un oise[E]au.
Hisse et [F#m]ho, Santi[E]ano !
[Bm7]Dix huit n?uds, quatre [E]cent [C#m]tonneaux :
Je suis [F#m]fier d'y [E]être [F#m]matelot.
Tiens [F#m]bon la vague tiens bon le [E]vent.
Hisse et [F#m]ho, Santi[E]ano !
[Bm7]Si Dieu veut toujours [E]droit de[C#m]vant,
Nous [F#m]irons jusqu'[E]à San [F#m]Francisco.
Je pars pour de longs mois en laissant Margot.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
D'y penser j'avais le c?ur gros
En doublant les feux de Saint-Malo.
Tiens bon la vague tiens bon le vent.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
Si Dieu veut toujours droit devant,
Nous irons jusqu'à San Francisco.
(instrumental break)
|F#m |F#m E |F#m |E |Bm7 |E C#m |F#m E |F#m |
On prétend que là-bas l'argent coule à flots.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
On trouve l'or au fond des ruisseaux.
J'en ramènerai plusieurs lingots.
Tiens bon la vague tiens bon le vent.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
Si Dieu veut toujours droit devant,
Nous irons jusqu'à San Francisco.
Un jour, je reviendrai chargé de cadeaux.
Hisse et ho, Santiano !
Au pays, j'irai voir Margot.
A son doigt, je passerai l'anneau.
Tiens [F#m]bon le cap et tiens bon le [E]flot.
Hisse et [F#m]ho, Santi[E]ano !
[Bm7]Sur la mer qui [E]fait le gros [C#m]dos,
Nous [F#m]irons jusqu'[E]à San [Dmaj7]Francisco.[F#m]
Outro: F#m
