Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me  Mississippi John Hurt



[C]Blues all[G] on the[C] ocean, [F]blues all in the[C] air;
[F]Can't stay here no [C]longer, I h[D]ave no steamship [G]fare.
When my [C]earthly t[G]rials are [C]over, cast my [F]body out in the [C]sea;
[F]Save on the under[C]taker bill - let the [G]mermaids flirt with[C] me!
Second verse:

I [C]do not w[G]ork for ple[C]asure; earthly p[F]eace I'll see no m[C]ore;
The o[F]nly reason I w[C]ork at all is to d[D]rive the wolf from my [G]door.
When my [C]earthly t[G]rials are [C]over, cast my [F]body out in the [C]sea;
[F]Save on the under[C]taker bill - let the [G]mermaids flirt with[C] me!

Third verse:

My [C]wife con[G]trols our ha[C]ppy home; my swe[F]etheart I cannot [C]find.
The [F]only thing I can [C]call my own is a [D]troubled and a worried [G]mind.
When my [C]earthly t[G]rials are [C]over, cast my [F]body out in the [C]sea;
[F]Save on the under[C]taker bill - let the [G]mermaids flirt with[C] me!

Fourth verse:

[C]Blues all [G]in my bo[C]dy; my [F]darlin' has forsaken[C] me.
If I [F]ever see her [C]face again, have to [D]travel 'cross the[G] sea.
When my [C]earthly t[G]rials are [C]over, cast my [F]body out in the [C]sea;
[F]Save on the under[C]taker bill - let the [G]mermaids flirt with[C] me!

Fifth verse, the same as first:

[C]Blues all[G] on the[C] ocean, [F]blues all in the[C] air;
[F]Can't stay here no [C]longer, I h[D]ave no steamship [G]fare.
When my [C]earthly t[G]rials are [C]over, cast my [F]body out in the [C]sea;
[F]Save on the under[C]taker bill - let the [G]mermaids flirt with[C] me!
