(Verse 1)

  a                                                      E
A gargantuan hole in the bow, will the ocean to enter allow.

       a               d                  E                        a
Oh but more a sin than letting it in it's letting our good fortune out.

    a                                                                 E
The nest to the storm did succumb, while the crow hid his fear in the rum.

        a        d                                      E                  a
And the mast, it broke and threw out the bloke and well now he's surely my chum.


     a                                                        E
Love letters from under his bed, holds the cabin boy over his head

  a          d                   E                  a
A futile try to keep it dry what tears have already wet.

          a                                                       E
They were penned by a girl in Merak, and the Javanese value their tact.

a                     d                        E                        a
She'll conclude he's horribly rude 'cause he's sure as hell not writing back.




(Chorus)

[tracet]    d            a
'Cause this ship's going down

                      E
All on account of the weather

a
Though we'll drown

d
There's no need to frown

             E           a
'Cause we're all going together

      d                 a
And I won't say "Woe is me"

                        E
As I disappear into the sea

a             d
'Cause I'm in good company

         E           a
As we're all going together




(Verse 2)

         a                                               E
I've had women of every kind, but the only one truly was mine

       a           d                    E                 a
Is the one at home who'll be alone when I am full-up with brine.

       a                                                      E
For my son I had always a plan, for to raise him as best as I can.

   a                    d                 E                     a
Oh well you can bet, my only regret is to not see him grow to a man.




(Chorus)

[tracet]    d            a
'Cause this ship's going down

                      E
All on account of the weather

a
Though we'll drown

d
There's no need to frown

             E           a
'Cause we're all going together

      d                 a
And I won't say "Woe is me"

                        E
As I disappear into the sea

a             d
'Cause I'm in good company

         E           a
As we're all going together



(Verse 3)

      a                                                           E
I was sinking down into the brine, when a curious sight caught my eye.

a                d                        E               a
Seaman Shaft had found him a raft and was makin' a speedy goodbye.

       a                                                      E
At the risk of sounding absurd, I have always been good as my word.

     a                 d                  E               a
So a fishgig I, lanced into his eye and I knocked his ass overboard.




(Chorus)

[tracet]    d            a
'Cause this ship's going down

                      E
All on account of the weather

a
Though we'll drown

d
There's no need to frown

             E           a
'Cause we're all going together

      d                 a
And I won't say "Woe is me"

                        E [let ring]
As I disappear into the sea


Oh hell!

a [strum once]         d [strum once]
'Cause you've all been so good to me

         E [strum once]  a
So we're all going     together.
