[Intro]
D   G   A   D

[Verse]
EmJenny's anchored off in the roadstead now
A DLying to a three-inch rode
F#7 GShe should have been gone on the morning tide
D A DBut now the whole damn day's grown old
[Verse]
Em GSitting on the foredeck, windy and cold
F#m BmWith the west wind making on
G A BmAnd that dumb-fool deckhand she's dreaming on
D A DHas slipped his cable and gone
[Chorus]
F#m GOh, Jenny, let the damn-fool go
A DThere's a good man down the line
GYou're going to meet him on the next short-tow
A D G A DAnd he's going to treat you fine
[Verse]
EmAll those years growing up on the water
A DWorking on your daddy's crew
F#7 GYou've been barge-hand, deckhand and engineer
D A DThere ain't a damn thing you can't do
[Verse]
Em GSo now you're the skipper and your own damn boss
F#m Bm GBut the boss gets lonely, too
A BmShe gets to thinking that any young buck
D A DIs the best that she can do
[Chorus]
F#m GOh, Jenny, let the damn-fool go
A DThere's a good man down the line
GYou're going to meet him on the next short-tow
A D AAnd he's going to treat you fine
[Verse]
D Em'Cause you're strong and able, canny and kind
A DYou're the best thing he'll ever know
F#7 GAnd that west wind's strolling along your deck
D A DSinging, "Come on, Jenny, let's go"
[Verse]
Em GNow you're the skipper and your own damn boss
F#m BmAnd the boss gets lonely, too
G A BmBut don't you be thinking that any young buck
D A DIs the best that you can do
[Chorus]
F#m GOh, Jenny, let the damn-fool go
A DThere's a good man down the line
GYou're going to meet him on the next short-tow
A D F#mAnd he's going to treat you fine
[Bridge]
GHit the air now, fire up the Cat
A DThrow in the gear to the windlass
GHaul that big old anchor on board
A D AAnd go on about your business
[Verse]
D EmOh, Jenny-with-the-wind-in-your-hair
A DJust lay this day aside
F#7 GLay your head on the cool west wind
D A DAnd tack your own sweet tide
