PIRATE SONG- ALESTORM
(Black Sails at Midnight)

worked out by ear so might not be exactly 100% but the least it could be is 99%.
everything here sounds right but might not be exactly correct. i wrote this for
keyboard but it would proably be the same for guitar, as most of it is just power chords anyway.

INTRO- Ab5   B5   F#5   C#
       Ab5   B5   F#    C#
       Ab5   B5   F#5   C#
       Ab5   B5   B5    F#   Ab5

Ab5 B5Though you see me now a mere ghost of a man
F#5 C#I once had the heart of a lion
Ab5 B5Commanded my ship between many a shore
F#5 C#The ol’ Jolly Roger a-flyin
Ab5 B5Mine was a name that struck fear into men
F#5 C#And regret into plenty of lasses
Ab5 B5Oh how I wish I could take back those days
F#5 C#As I stare at these empty beer-glasses
B EbmAnd I think of the times past when I had it all
C# Ab5I toyed with men’s wives and their daughters
B EbmAnd in my pursuit of this ill-gotten wealth
C# EbI stabbed and I slashed and I slaughtered
Ab5 E5And for what? The men that I’ve fought
F#5 C#Are matched by the number of women I’ve bought
Ab5 E5And for what? I’ve killed and I’ve shot
F#5 F#And reddened the cold tears of children with blood
Ab5 F# B5 C#5And if I could go back and make my amends
B5 F#5 Ab5I’d make all those mistakes again
B5 F# Eb Ab5I’d kill every last one of those bastards, my friend
REPEAT INTRO- Ab5 B5 F#5 C# Ab5 B5 F# C# Ab5 B5 F#5 C# Ab5 B5 B5 F# Ab5
Ab5 B5My ship was the last sight that many would see
F#5 C#As we narrowed the gap with our quarry
Ab5 B5The sound of the cannons and splintering wood
F#5 C#Would herald our paths into glory
Ab5 B5We seized all the bounty and scuppered the ship
F#5 C#Our hearts hadn’t time for the wounded
Ab5 B5I took my share and the crew got the rest
F#5 C#And on into port we then bounded
B EbmLife has many pleasures, and we had our fill
C# Ab5Of food and of wenches and beer
B EbmWhen we’d tired of the port or had drunken it dry
C# EbThe time to set sail would come near
Ab5 E5And for what? We heeded no law
F#5 C#Made other men suffer so we could have more
Ab5 E5And for what? We lived every day
F#5 F#With the noose of the hangman a hair’s breadth away
Ab5 F# B5 C#And if I could go back and make my amends
B5 F# Ab5I’d make all those mistakes again
B5 F# Eb Ab5I’d kill every last one of those bastards, my friend

Ab5 B5Oh I have seen wonders you’d never have dreamed
F#5 C#And taken my fair share I must say
Ab5 B5Holds full of booty I happily seized
F#5 C#From crews who would not see a new day
Ab5 B5Spanish gold came and went, gem stones got sold
F#5 C#But I knew more lay on the horizon
Ab5 B5Yet the beer was too good and the gals were too sweet
F#5 C#And now in my old age it’s gone
B EbmThese memories were bought with the lives of good men
C# Ab5A price that I paid without scruple
B EbmSo many souls suffered so I could get drunk
C# EbAnd swagger from brothel to brothel
Ab5 E5And for what? It’s been many years
F#5 C#Yet the screams of the vanquished still ring in my ears
Ab5 E5And for what? I’ve blood on my hands
F#5 F#I wait for my place in the halls of the damned
Ab5 F# B5 C#And if I could go back and make my amends
B5 F# Ab5I’d make all those mistakes again
B5 F# Eb Ab5I’d kill every last one of those bastards my friend
