Paul And Storm – The Captain Wifes Lament chords ver. 2

Some minor corrections to the other chords floating about. Technically it's not 'G A D' 
at "seamen wall to wall" either, but the actual accordion chords are pretty hard to do 
that quick and it sounds good, so I left it.

Intro: D G D A

D GThe ship sailed into harbor after fifteen months at sea
D AThe captain hit the tavern with his crew of fifty-three
D GAfter drinking up their pay they staggered through the town
D E A7
D (stop)But all the inns and public houses turned the sailors down
D GThe captain said "Fear not, me lads you all can come with me
D AI live just 'round the corner, and you all can stay for free"
D GBut when the captain's wife awoke upon the break of day
D A (stop)They say that you could hear her wailin' Clear to Bot'ny Bay...
D GShe said there's seamen all around the bed and seamen on the floor
D ASeamen in the bathroom and behind the closet door
D F#m Bm F#there's seamen in the fireplace and seamen in the hall
G D G A DThe living room is carpeted with seamen, wall to wall
D Gthere's seamen in the entryway and seamen on the stair
D AAnd worst of all, there's even seamen in me underwear
Bm F#m Bm F#there's some behind the larder and beneath the table, too
G D G A DI do believe your seamen got into me Irish stew
D Gthere's seamen here in front of me and seamen in the rear
D AMy God, there's even seamen hanging from the chandelier
Bm F#m Bm F#there's seamen on the windowsill and seamen in the yard
G D G A DThe seamen even left a stain upon the Saint Bernard
D GAlthough I am a patient wife 'tis more than I can bear
D A (stop)To wake up in the morning with your seamen in my hair
D F#m Bmin F#I ne'er again do wish to see thee darken up my door
G D G DSo clean up all your seamen and come round my way no more
G D G A DSo clean up all your seamen and come round my way no more!
