The Beautiful Port of Bilbao by Harry Bird and the Rubber Wellies
Standard Tuning: EADGBe
Capo 2

C

C                         F    C
It's a long way down from Edinburgh
         Am       G          C 
From the docks of Portsmouth town
                          F    C
It's a long way down from Edinburgh 
    G                    F
But further to where I'm bound
Am                       C
He put a fine ring on my finger so thin
F                         C 
And he gave me his solemn vow
Am                           C 
And he said that he would be waiting for me 
       F         G       C 
In the beautiful port of Bilbao
 
        C                  F          C
There's many a mighty fine ship to be found
       Am            G       C 
In the depths of the Bizkaia bay
                              F         C
With cannons and sailors that roared so loud 
        G                 F
As they sank their watery way
           Am                        C
Still I'll pray to the lord and I'll clamber aboard 
          F                       C
The first boat with a wake to its bow
Am                           C
Cos he said that he would be waiting for me 
       F         G       C
In the beautiful port of Bilbao

G
     C                    F          C
He's pretty, oh yes he be pretty for sure,
         Am       G             C
He's the bonniest boy that I've seen
                        F          C
And oh how he danced me around and around
       G         F  
In his jacket of jaunty green
            Am                   C
But there's still no sign of his coat so fine
     F                         C 
As I stand on the deck looking out
       Am                    C
And he said that he would be waiting for me 
       F         G       C
In the beautiful port of Bilbao

F C F C Am
(For C, F at the start of this verse palm mute then full strum at Am)
   C               C
Oh sister dear, oh sister 
    C
Far beyond the sea's dark foam
     C                           C                         
Take heed of them handsome young men and their money 
        F                 F
Who'd a-charm you from your home
       Am                   C 
For if I'd not a curse on a gentleman's purse 
  F       C
I sure do now
      Am                      C
Every night after ten I'll be waiting for them 
       F         G          C   
In the beautiful port of Bilbao
