Capo 2.Am E AmThere were three brothers in merry Scotland,Dm C EIn merry Scotland there were three,Am And they did cast lots which of them should go,Dm C Eshould go, should go,Am C G AmAnd turn robber all on the salt sea.Am E AmThe lot it fell first upon Henry Martin,Dm C E The youngest of all the three;AmThat he should turn robber all on the salt sea,Dm C ESalt sea, the salt sea.Am C G AmFor to maintain his two brothers and he.Am E AmThey had not been sailing but a long winter's nightDm C E And a part of a short winter's day,AmWhen he espied a stout lofty ship,Dm C Elofty ship, lofty ship,Am C G AmCome abibbing down on him straight way.Am E AmHullo! Hullo! cried Henry Martin,Dm C E What makes you sail so nigh?AmI'm a rich merchant ship bound for fair London Town,Dm C ELondon Town, London TownAm C G AmWould you please for to let me pass by?Am E AmOh no! Oh no! cried Henry Martin,Dm C E This thing it never could be,AmFor I have turned robber all on the salt seaDm C ESalt sea, the salt sea.Am C G AmFor to maintain my two brothers and me.Am E AmCome lower your tops'l and brail up your mizz'nDm C E And bring your ship under my lee,AmOr I will give to you a full cannon ball,Dm C Ecannon ball, cannon ball,Am C G AmAnd all your dear bodies drown in the salt sea.Am E AmOh no! we won't lower our lofty topsailDm C E Nor bring our ship under your lee,AmAnd you shan't take from us our rich merchant goods,Dm C Emerchant goods, merchant goodsAm C G AmNor point our bold guns to the sea.Am E AmThen broadside and broadside and at it they wentDm C E For fully two hours or three,AmTill Henry Martin gave to them the deathshot,Dm C Ethe deathshot, the deathshot,Am C G AmAnd straight to the bottom went she.Am E AmBad news, bad news, to old England came,Dm C E Bad news to fair London Town,AmThere's been a rich vessel and she's cast away,Dm C Ecast away, cast away,Am C G AmAnd all of her merry men drown'd.
