Prince Hal's Dirge chords by boognishlives

This is a pretty easy yet fantastic song that is worth a few listens.

No capo; standard tuning

Originally played on a piano by Loudon, this song sounds great on acoustic guitar as well.

Intro: Am C Am G F Am G Am

Am               
Give me a capon, 
C
And some roguish companion, 
Am      G    F            Am     G Am
A wench, and a bottle of sack.
Am                 
Take me to the ale house, 
C
Take me to the whore house. 
Am        G         F         Am    G Am
If I vomit, keep me off of my back. 

(repeat for the rest of the song)

My father, he thinks, 
I Am A good-for-nothing, 
And that I won't amount to much. 
But he's not aware of my secret weapon. 
I can count on my self in the clutch.
 
Show me a breach, 
I'll once more unto it. 
I'll be ready for action any day. 
I'll straighten up, 
and I'll fly most righteous. 
In a fracas, I'll be right in the fray. 

I can drink you under 25 tables, 
Fight and be a ladies man. 
But all this will change, 
When I am good and ready, 
To become the king of this land.
 
Give me a capon, 
And some roguish companion, 
A wench, and a bottle of sack. 
Take me to the ale house, 
Take me to the whore house. 
If I vomit, keep me off of my back.

End on Am
