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 AD GThe ship sailed into harbor after fifteen months at seaD AThe captain hit the tavern with his crew of fifty-threeD GAfter drinking up their pay they staggered through the townD E A7D (stop)But all the inns and public houses turned the sailors downD GThe captain said "Fear not, me lads you all can come with meD 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 dayD 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 floorD ASeamen in the bathroom and behind the closet doorD F#m Bm F#there's seamen in the fireplace and seamen in the hallG D G A DThe living room is carpeted with seamen, wall to wallD Gthere's seamen in the entryway and seamen on the stairD AAnd worst of all, there's even seamen in me underwearBm F#m Bm F#there's some behind the larder and beneath the table, tooG D G A DI do believe your seamen got into me Irish stewD Gthere's seamen here in front of me and seamen in the rearD AMy God, there's even seamen hanging from the chandelierBm F#m Bm F#there's seamen on the windowsill and seamen in the yardG D G A DThe seamen even left a stain upon the Saint BernardD GAlthough I am a patient wife 'tis more than I can bearD A (stop)To wake up in the morning with your seamen in my hairD F#m Bmin F#I ne'er again do wish to see thee darken up my doorG D G DSo clean up all your seamen and come round my way no moreG D G A DSo clean up all your seamen and come round my way no more!
