(Verse 1)

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

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

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

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


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

  am         dm                  E                  am
A futile try to keep it dry what tears have already wet.

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

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




(Chorus)

[tracet]    dm           am
'Cause this ship's going down

                      E
All on account of the weather

am
Though we'll drown

dm
There's no need to frown

             E           am
'Cause we're all going together

      dm                am
And I won't say "Woe is me"

                        E
As I disappear into the sea

am            dm
'Cause I'm in good company

         E           am
As we're all going together




(Verse 2)

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

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

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

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




(Chorus)


[tracet]    dm           am
'Cause this ship's going down

                      E
All on account of the weather

am
Though we'll drown

dm
There's no need to frown

             E           am
'Cause we're all going together

      dm                am
And I won't say "Woe is me"

                        E
As I disappear into the sea

am            dm
'Cause I'm in good company

         E           am
As we're all going together



(Verse 3)

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

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

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

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




(Chorus)

[tracet]    dm           am
'Cause this ship's going down

                      E
All on account of the weather

am
Though we'll drown

dm
There's no need to frown

             E           am
'Cause we're all going together

      dm                am
And I won't say "Woe is me"

                        E [let ring]
As I disappear into the sea


Oh hell!

am [strum once]         dm [strum once]
'Cause you've all been so good to me

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