Donovan – Wynken Blynken And Nod chords

Chords
Transpose:
Dm G Am GWynken, Blynken, and Nod one night, sailed off in a wooden shoe,
C Am Dm GThey sailed down a river of crystal light into a sea of dew.
Dm G Am G"Now where are you going and what do you wish?" the old moon asked the three.
C Am Dm G"We're going out fishing for the herring fish that live in the beautiful sea,
F G Dm GAnd such silver and gold have we," said Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.
Dm G Am GSo the old moon laughed and sang a song as they rocked in their wooden shoe,
C Am Dm GAnd the breeze that sped them all night long ruffled the waves of dew.
Dm G Am GNow the stars in the sky were the herring fish that live in the beautiful sea
C Am Dm GCome cast your nets wherever you wish, never a-feared are we.
F G Dm GSo sang the stars to the fishermen three, Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.
Dm G Am GSo all night long their nets they threw to the stars in the twinklin' foam
C Am Dm GThen down from the sky came the wooden shoe a-bringin' the fishermen home.
Dm G Am G'Twas all so beautiful a sight it seemed as if it could not be.
C Am Dm GAnd some folks thought it was a dream they dreamed while sailin' the beautiful sea
F G Dm G But I shall name you the fishermen three, Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.
Dm G Am GNow Wynken and Blynken are two little eyes and Nod is a little head.
C Am Dm GAnd the breeze that sped them all night long is a wee one's trundle bed.
Dm G Am GSo close your eyes as mother sings of the beautiful sights that be,
C Am Dm GAnd you shall see such wondrous things as you rock in your misty sea.
F G Dm GSo sang the stars to the fishermen three, Wynken, Blynken, and Nod.
