C
As I was a-walking down Paradise street
C     Am        D            G
To me way, aye, blow the man down
Dm             G            Dm
A pretty young damsel I chanced for to meet
G                    C
Give me some time to blow the man down

She was round in the counter and bluff in the bow
To me way, aye, blow the man down
So I took in all sail and cried "Way enough now!"
Give me some time to blow the man down

I hailed her in English, she answered me clear
To me way, aye, blow the man down
I'm from the Black Arrow, bound to the Shakespeare
Give me some time to blow the man down

She says to me "Will you stand treat?"
To me way, aye, blow the man down
"Delighted" says I "for a charmer so sweet"
Give me some time to blow the man down
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/m/misc-traditional/99553.html ]
So I tailed her my flipper and took her in tow
To me way, aye, blow the man down
And yardarm to yardarm, away wed did go
Give me some time to blow the man down

I bought her a two shilling dinner in town
To me way, aye, blow the man down
And trinkets and laces and bonnet and gown
Give me some time to blow the man down

We walked and we talked and her name it was Gwen
To me way, aye, blow the man down
I kissed her a couple and kissed her again
Give me some time to blow the man down

I says "Will you marry a seafaring man?"
To me way, aye, blow the man down
She says "I'll ask Mother to see if I can."
Give me some time to blow the man down

Along comes a sailor, they call him Half Ton,
To me way, aye, blow the man down
He says to her "Mother" she murmurs "My son!"
Give me some time to blow the man down

She says to him "Son, here is your new dadee"
To me way, aye, blow the man down
But I says "I'm bound for the rolling sea"
Give me some time to blow the man down
