D                              G
a noble whale ship and commander
D                            Bm
called the Catalpa, they say
D                             G
she sailed into Western Australia
D                 A       D
and took six poor Fenians away

D                                 G
so come all you screw warders and jailers
D                      Bm
remember Perth regatta day
D                             G
take care of the rest of your Fenians
D                    A          D
or the Yankees will steal them away

D                            G
you kept them in Western Australia
D                                Bm
till their hair it began to turn grey
D                                G
when a Yank from the States of America
D                  A           D
came out here and stole them away

D                              G
now all the Perth boats were a-racing
D                              Bm
and making short tacks fot the spot
D                              G
but the Yankee she tacked into Fremantle
D                     A         D
and took the best prize of the lot

D                                 G
so come all you screw warders and jailers
D                      Bm
remember Perth regatta day
D                             G
take care of the rest of your Fenians
D                    A           D
or the Yankees will steal them away

D                               G
the Georgette armed with bold warriors
D                             Bm
went out the poor Yanks to arrest
D                                 G
but she hoisted her star-spangled banner
D                     A       D
saying you'll not board me i guess

D                             G  
so remember those six Fenians colonial
D                                   Bm
and sing o'er these few verses with skill
D                                  G
and remember the Yankee that stole them
D                      A           D
and the home that they left on the hill

D                                 G
so come all you screw warders and jailers
D                      Bm
remember Perth regatta day
D                             G
take care of the rest of your Fenians
D                    A           D
or the Yankees will steal them away
