Cm
Yon's my privateer see how trim she lies

To every man a lucky hand and to every man a prize
                                 Eb          Bb
I live to ride the ocean the mighty world around
 Cm                               Bb              Cm
To take a little plunder and to hear the cannon sound

    Ab               Eb
To lay with pretty women
                 Bb        Fsus2
to drink Madeira wine
 Cm                                Bb               Cm
to hear the roller's thunder on a shore that isn't mine

 Cm
Privateering, we will go
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Privateering, we will go
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!

 Cm
The people on your man o'war are treated worse than scum

I'm no flogging Captain my God I've sailed with some
                               Eb                Bb
Come with me to Barbary we'll ply there up and down
 Cm                               Bb       Cm
Not quite exactly in the service of the Crown

    Ab               Eb
To lay with pretty women
                 Bb        Fsus2
to drink Madeira wine
 Cm                                Bb               Cm
to hear the roller's thunder on a shore that isn't mine

 Cm
Privateering, we will go
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Privateering, we will go
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!

 Cm
Look here there's my privateer she's small but she can sting

Licensed to take prizes with a letter from the King
                                      Eb             Bb
I love the streets and taverns of a pretty foreign town
 Cm                                       Bb           Cm
tip my hat to the dark eyed ladies as we sally up and down

    Ab               Eb
To lay with pretty women
                 Bb        Fsus2
to drink Madeira wine
 Cm                                Bb               Cm
to hear the roller's thunder on a shore that isn't mine

 Cm
Privateering, we will go
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Privateering, we will go
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!

 Cm
Britannia needs her privateers each time she goes to war

Death to all her enemies no prizes matter more
                               Eb                Bb
Come with me to Barbary we'll ply there up and down
 Cm                               Bb       Cm
Not quite exactly in the service of the Crown

    Ab               Eb
To lay with pretty women
                 Bb        Fsus2
to drink Madeira wine
 Cm                                Bb               Cm
to hear the roller's thunder on a shore that isn't mine

 Cm
Privateering, we will go
Privateering, Yoh! oh! ho!
Privateering, we will go
Yeah! oh! oh! ho!
