Let Her Go Down  Steeleye Span

Let Her Go Down by Steeleye Span
CAPO 2nd Fret
(INTRO:( C G C F (2x)
VERSE 1:
[C]Sometime in Oc[F]tober,
We¬[G] sailed from[F]¬ England'[C]s¬ shore
When we¬[G] sailed i[C]nto a[G]¬ ragin[C]g¬ storm
Like I've¬[F] never, ever[G]¬ seen [C]before
And [F]all of the crew, they were¬[G] brave men
But the¬[C] captain, he was[C7]¬ br[F]aver
He said,¬ [G]"[C]Never¬ mi[G]nd the¬ s[C]hip, me¬ boys,
There's none of us here can¬[F] save her‚??
CHORUS:
‚??Let her g[C]o¬ down[C]¬ [G] [F]
Swim for your¬[C] lives[C] [G] [F]
Swim for your¬[C] children
[Dm]Swim for your¬[G] wives
But¬ let her go[C]¬ down¬ [C] [G] [F]
Let her go¬[C] down‚??[C] [G] [F]
VERSE 2:
[C]Lost in the open [F]ocean
There were [G]some of the [F]crew and [C]me
As the [G]captain [C]steered our [G]wounded [C]ship
To the [F]bottom of an [G]angry [C]sea
And with his [F]dying breath we all [G]heard him say,
"It's[C] the fortune [C7]of a[F] sailor"
And he said, &[G]quot;N[C]ever mind[G] the ship[C], me boys,
There's none of us here can [F]save her‚??
CHORUS:
‚??Let her g[C]o¬ down[C]¬ [G] [F]
Swim for your¬[C] lives[C] [G] [F]
Swim for your¬[C] children
[Dm]Swim for your¬[G] wives
But¬ let her go[C]¬ down¬ [C] [G] [F]
Let her go¬[C] down‚??[C] [G] [D]

VERSE 3:
[D]He wondered if his [G]shipmates
Were [A]ready just to [G]pray and give [D]in
So he [A]called their [D]names out [A]one by [D]one
But there was no [G]one else a[A]round but [D]him
He saw the [G]ship go down in the f[A]ading light
And he [D]knew he could have [D7]saved [G]her
He said, "[A];The cap[D]tain lied, when[A] the cap[D]tain cried",
'There's none of us here can [G]save her";
CHORUS:
‚??Let her g[D]o¬ down[D]¬ [A] [G]
Swim for your¬[D] lives[D] [A] [G]
Swim for your¬[D] children
[Em]Swim for your¬[A] wives
But¬ let her go[D]¬ down¬ [D] [A] [G]
Let her go¬[D] down[D] [A] [G]
Let her go¬[D] down[D] [A] [G]
Let her go¬[D] down‚??
