[INTRO:[  C   G    C    F   (2x)

VERSE 1:
C FSometime in October,
G F CWe sailed from England's shore
G C G CWhen we sailed into a raging storm
F G CLike I've never, ever seen before
F GAnd all of the crew, they were brave men
C C7 FBut the captain, he was braver
G C G CHe said, "Never mind the ship, me boys,
FThere's none of us here can¬†save her‚ÄĚ
CHORUS:
C C G F“Let her go down 
C C G FSwim for your lives
CSwim for your children
Dm GSwim for your wives
C C G FBut let her go down 
C C G FLet her go¬†down‚ÄĚ
VERSE 2:
C FLost in the open ocean
G F CThere were some of the crew and me
G C G CAs the captain steered our wounded ship
F G CTo the bottom of an angry sea
F GAnd with his dying breath we all heard him say,
C C7 F"It's the fortune of a sailor"
G C G CAnd he said, "Never mind the ship, me boys,
FThere's none of us here can save her‚ÄĚ
CHORUS:
C C G F“Let her go down 
C C G FSwim for your lives
CSwim for your children
Dm GSwim for your wives
C C G FBut let her go down 
C C G DLet her go¬†down‚ÄĚ
* Key change - Up 2 semi-tones * VERSE 3:
D GHe wondered if his shipmates
A G DWere ready just to pray and give in
A D A DSo he called their names out one by one
G A DBut there was no one else around but him
G AHe saw the ship go down in the fading light
D D7 GAnd he knew he could have saved her
A D A DHe said, "The captain lied, when the captain cried",
G'There's none of us here can save her";
CHORUS:
D D A G“Let her go down 
D D A GSwim for your lives

D D A GLet her go down
D Let her go¬†down‚ÄĚ
