Some minor corrections to the other chords floating about. Technically it's not 'G A D' at "seamen wall to wall" either, but the actual accordion chords are pretty hard to do that quick and it sounds good, so I left it. Intro: D G D A D G The ship sailed into harbor after fifteen months at sea D A The captain hit the tavern with his crew of fifty-three D G After drinking up their pay they staggered through the town D E A7 D (stop) But all the inns and public houses turned the sailors down D G The captain said "Fear not, me lads you all can come with me D A I live just 'round the corner, and you all can stay for free" D G But when the captain's wife awoke upon the break of day D A (stop) They say that you could hear her wailin' Clear to Bot'ny Bay... D G She said there's seamen all around the bed and seamen on the floor D A Seamen in the bathroom and behind the closet door D F#m Bm F# there's seamen in the fireplace and seamen in the hall G D G A D The living room is carpeted with seamen, wall to wall D G there's seamen in the entryway and seamen on the stair D A And worst of all, there's even seamen in me underwear Bm F#m Bm F# there's some behind the larder and beneath the table, too G D G A D I do believe your seamen got into me Irish stew D G there's seamen here in front of me and seamen in the rear D A My God, there's even seamen hanging from the chandelier Bm F#m Bm F# there's seamen on the windowsill and seamen in the yard G D G A D The seamen even left a stain upon the Saint Bernard D G Although I am a patient wife 'tis more than I can bear D A (stop) To wake up in the morning with your seamen in my hair D F#m Bmin F# I ne'er again do wish to see thee darken up my door G D G D So clean up all your seamen and come round my way no more G D G A D So clean up all your seamen and come round my way no more!
